    Very well made, beautiful item. Fit perfectly upon arrival. Took a while to ship, as is expected with any custom item. But once it did it arrived quickly. Very pleased with our new collar.

    I've ordered 2 collars but only received one review notice so I'm reviewing both here. Over a year ago we ordered the "Diamonds in Pink" for our pit mix. It is a beautiful collar that receives many compliments. Great quality and craftsmanship. One stud fell off after about a year but the collar and rest of the jewels and studs are still on pretty firm. We loved it so much that we ordered a 2nd collar, "The Sherriff" a few months ago for our newly adopted pit mix. This collar is as of great quality as our first. We plan on ordering a third collar for our smaller dog. I would recommend these to anyone.

    What a wonderful shop to work with! Lori was very helpful and understanding. We came up with a custom design using brown leather and only one Protect and Serve shield. Ruger's collar came quickly and is exactly what I wanted. I'm going to be a repeat customer for sure. Great quality and customer service!! 👌🏼

    This is a quality product! I'm so glad that I finally bought it because it had been on my wishlist forever. I have leather dog collars from many makers and this compares with the best of them. I would 100% recommend this collar to anyone.

Additional policies and FAQs

You may use a string but of course, a cloth measuring tape is always the best.
Measure your dogs neck in the center of the neck, not too close to the ears or too close to the shoulders (these mistakes will result in a collar that is slightly too small or too big). Measurements should be taken where the collar would typically sit. Do not leave extra slack around the neck (for example: do not measure around your dog’s extra neck skin or flaps or put your fingers in with the measurement). For longer-haired dogs, make sure you measure as close to the skin as you can get to ensure a proper fit.

If you use a string, lay the piece of measured string flat next to a traditional tape measure, ruler, or yard stick. I’ll work with this number.

For Martingale Collar sizing:

When measuring for Martingale Collars it is key to remember the actual collar needs to slip over your dog’s head as there is no buckle.
For this collar you will need both the measurement for a typical collar (around the dog’s neck) and also a measurement for the widest part of your dogs head. To do this measurement use the cloth tape measure and wrap it around the widest part of the head, just in front of the ears and around underneath their chin.
