About Nicia Pet Couture™ Designer Dog Collars ● Cat Collars ● Dog Leashes ● Martingale Collars

Welcome to my shop! Nicia Pet Couture™ creates made-to-order dog collars, cat collars, leashes, dog collar flowers and bow accessories that are beautiful yet strong and durable. Following fashion and trends I select the finest quality ribbons and fabrics to create a fashionable look for your pet!

Nicia Pet Couture™ designs and manufactures all of its pet collars and leashes in its East Bay, California, workshop. I also work with American small business owners and locally owned shops, such as Britex Fabrics in San Francisco.

Fabric, ribbon, rhinestone, glitter, Eco-friendly . . . we do it all! From rhinestone and rosette flower dog collars to classic polka dot, argyle and plaid dog collars we've got the latest collar designs for your dog! All collars are handmade, high quality and very comfy. For earth dogs we have Eco-friendly cotton dog collars that are great for comfort, easy-wash, and help with sensitive skin issues.

Martingale Dog Collars: One-of-a-kind couture pieces styled with designer ribbons, contrasting glitter ribbon, frilly ruffles and rhinestone embellishments.

Holiday Dog Collars ● Seasonal Dog Collars ● Birthday Dog Collars: We have you covered all year with our selection of festive, holiday and seasonal dog collars such as, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Nautical, July 4th, Halloween, Fall & Thanksgiving, and Christmas. We even have birthday dog collars to celebrate your pet's special day with cupcake, balloons and cake designs!

Made-to-order matching leashes to many of our dog collars are available! Convo us for ribbon or fabric design availability! The Urban Traffic Lead (or short leashes) is wonderful when walking dogs in busy city areas! Enjoy the benefits of a stress-free walk by keeping your dog close to you in an Urban Dog Leash while walking in tight surroundings. These urban dog leads are shorter and allow a greater degree of control when walking in tight surroundings.

Ribbon Collars ● Rhinestone & Glitter Cat Collars: Our decorative 3/8" cat collars feature beautiful ribbon designs, faux rhinestones and glitter -- all with breakaway safety buckles your cat will love to wear.

Feel free to contact us with any questions! If you have any made-to-order requests, please drop us a Convo :-) Thanks for your visit!

    My Inspiration

    Nicia, our English Springer Spaniel kept us company every day. She was such a pretty girl and had an unbelievable personality. Nicia remains a constant inspiration for us every day. Nicia passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, October 18, 2014.

Welcome to Nicia Pet Couture!™ -- Fashion House of Chic Neck Gear for Dapper Dogs and Cool Cats. Our specialty? Designing the best looks in Dog & Cat Collars, Leashes and Collar Bows and Flower accessories for your pet!

We're passionate about quality and construction -- every collar and leash is meticulously handmade and checked over before leaving our shop! For hardware we use strong, top quality comfort-curved acetal or metal side-release buckles and slides that hug your pet's neck comfortably; powder-coated hardware in various colors are also used. All of our collars and leashes can be machine washed on gentle cycle and hung to dry. We hand-select designer ribbons and fashion-forward fabrics, mix, match and contrast webbing in many colors which make our designs unique. We box and double-stitch key stress points to ensure that our products are "solid." We love what we do and always strive to match pets with unique and creative, functional and stylish products.

What inspired us to open our shop was our beloved English Springer Spaniel by the name of Nicia Plinia. Sadly, Nicia is no longer with us but her legacy goes on as we create preppy designs and bling for our collars and leashes that we know Nicia would love to wear!

We hope you enjoy looking through our collection and welcome you as one of our very special customers.

Care instructions

Collars can be machine washed in a mesh bag on "delicate care", however, we recommend placing them in a washing the my hand to extend their wear. DO NOT put collars in the dryer; lay collars flat or hang-dry.

Remember to watch your dog when they're wearing accessories or fancy collars as some might get ruined during playtime and should only be worn on special occasions, walks, etc. It might be wise to remove bows, flowers, and pet necklaces when you're not watching your pet.

➤ Special Note: Our Couture Rosette Dog Collars & Leashes are for occasional wear, not everyday wear. The fabric used to embellish the collars and leashes is taffeta. Handle with care.

Wholesale availability

➤ Wholesale inquiries welcome - contact us for terms and pricing.

What about collar safety?

➤ Collar safety is "your" responsibility!
Please inspect your pet's collar frequently for any wear and tear that might compromise its strength or safety.

➤ Disclaimer:
Nicia Pet Couture™ will not be held responsible for 'escape artist' pets that get out of their collars, pets that get injured or loose if collars break due to wear and tear of collar, or for any injury or loss caused directly or indirectly by our collars or leashes -- so please check your pet's collar regularly. The Martingale dog collar style is not recommended for everyday wear and should only be used when walking your dog.

Custom and personalized orders

➤ Fabric Collar & Leash Designs:
Since our fabric collars are made-to-order not one will have exactly the same pattern or design. Since each piece of fabric is individually cut to make a collar or leash, pattern placement will vary slightly.

➤ Photographs:
Nicia Pet Couture™ provides product descriptions and wonderful photographs that best represent our products. All of our collars, leashes, and accessories are custom made; slight variations in size (width and length), fabric and/or ribbon design and color may occur. That's what makes each piece couture and unique!

➤ All custom made-to-order collars and leashes are final sale.

How do I go about choosing the right size buckle collar for my pet?

➤ Use a soft measuring tape to determine your pet's neck size.
● A properly fitting collar should have enough room to fit two fingers between the collar and the pet for comfort.
● Please note that our collar measurements for fitting neck size (ie Size Large - Fits 16" - 24" necks are established by using a tape measure on the inside of the collar when buckled and extended to maximum length.
● Lengths may vary slightly from product to product due to each being hand made and not mass produced.

What is a Martingale Dog Collar?

Martingale dog collars are designed with two loops. The two loops work together when a dog pulls on a leash to give a "humane squeeze" and keeps the dog in check. The Martingale design also prevents the dog from slipping backwards out of the collar. The Martingale is a must-have for breeds like greyhounds and whippets, whose heads are smaller than their necks.

1) measure behind the ears using a soft tape measure; 2) measure around the widest part of the head; 3) measure around the neck where the collar will sit.

Example: If your dog has a 14" neck & a 16" head select a size medium collar (adjustable from 14-18"). Also add at least 2 inches to the widest head measurement so you can slide the collar on and off easily.

Martingale Dog Collar Sizes

Medium (fits neck size: 14-18")
Large (fits neck size: 17"-24")
XLarge (fits neck size: 20-29")
