Needlepoint Collar Finishing

An accurate neck measurement is very important to ensure a custom fit. If your dog currently has a collar that fits, you can also measure the collar.

Neck Measurement Method: Be sure to measure your dog’s neck using a tailor's tape adjusted as snug or loose as you would like the collar to fit. DO NOT ADD ANYTHING TO THE NECK MEASUREMENT. The neck measurement is placed at the center hole of the 5 adjustment holes on the collar, leaving you 2 holes on either side for adjusting larger or smaller. On very small collars (11” and under) there are only 3 adjustment holes, with the neck measurement placed at the center hole.

Collar Measurement Method: Lay your dog’s collar out on a flat surface. Using a tailors tape or ruler, measure from the end of the buckle (including the buckle) to the hole in which the collar fits best.

The amount of stitched canvas needed for us to make a dog collar will be 3” less than the neck measurement. Be aware that on each end of a dog collar canvas, about 1 ½” of the stitching will be covered by the leather.
