This is a medium green dog collar with green stitching. It is made with 4 layers of high quality cotton fabric and 4 layers of interfacing. It features a black quick release buckle and a welded metal D ring for leash and tag attachment.
This collar, like all of mine, is made with 100% cotton and 4 layers of interfacing to give it a durable but lightweight core. It features a quick release black buckle and a welded metal D ring for leash and tag attachments. Each end, though not shown on this sample, is marked with a / for added strength and security.
So about the accessories. The flower can come in 3-4" and 4-5" depending on the size you order. By default, I will put the most appropriate size flower with the size of collar. The bowtie comes in 2", 3", and 5" and I do the same with the bowtie as I do with the flower. Both the bowtie and the flower are removable with a velcro backing!
**** With the new system, if your dog collars need to be in two different sizes, pleases indicate such in the notes to seller upon checkout.****
This collar is MADE TO ORDER in the following sizes:
XXS - 7-10"
XS - 8-13"
S - 10-15"
M - 12-20"
L - 15-25"
XL - 18-30"
The available widths are: 1/2", 3/4", and 1". When you order specify both your collar SIZE and WIDTH. If you do not, the XXS and XS will automatically be 1/2", the S 3/4", and the M-XL will be 1".
How do you take your dog's neck measurement? Take your dog's current collar and lie it flat and then measure it. Then figure out what collar your dog's neck size fits into! One thing is - if you have a younger dog, and they're at the tail end of one collar, go ahead and order the size up! The sizes do overlap, after all.
Why cotton and not nylon? Sure nylon may be a hundred times more durable than cotton and easily washable and all these amazing things, but nylon is synthetic and it dries slowly and it can cause allergies. I have two dogs - one wouldn't be caught dead anywhere NEAR water - and the other frolics in every puddle he sees. I prefer a collar that dries quickly, doesn't stain his fur with the color or get otherwise gross and nasty looking, AND that is easily washable.
Naturally, no collar lasts forever. Check your dog's collar regularly for wear for his safety and your peace of mind!
