These collars are of a non-opening design and are suitable for all breeds of dog but are especially designed for sighthounds (greyhound, saluki, lurcher, wolfhound, whippet etc) as a tag or house collar. They expand to fit over the head, then adjust back down to fit your dog using the metal slider with no need for an opening clip.
Made from sturdy nylon webbing, they are carefully wrapped with a lining fabric (usually cotton blend) and then the decorative fabric, and finished with sturdy metal fittings to create both a beautiful and comfortable item for your dog, including a welded or single-piece molded d-ring to hang i.d. tags from. Silver Peacock is careful to ensure that all webbing is covered to stop rubbing and chaffing of delicate necks!
These collars designed to hold your hound's i.d. tags, and we would not recommend that they are used with a lead for taking your sighthound for a walk, this is because they can be easily slipped by hounds with heads smaller than their necks . Other breeds of dog can though very safely used these collars with a lead. It is though important that your dog has ID on them "just in case" something happens, and these collars are a perfect and stylish solution for around the house and garden.
We carefully source the best fabrics for these collars from all over the world, to bring you an amazing range of styles and types including Chinese satin brocade, Indian Sari, and designer printed cottons (including Kaffe Fassett, Alexander Henry and Robert Kaufmann designs). Please also note that these fabrics are purchased in very small quantities, so that each design is an extremely limited edition.
And best of all you can hand wash most these collars in mild detergent, or in a washing machine on a gentle cycle, in a knotted pillowcase, and let them air dry. For more details on caring for our collars please see our Collar information page
