Cloth dog collars from Sirius
Our cloth collars, regardless of size or
color, are all made on the same basic pattern. While initially designed for
sighthounds, these collars work well for all breeds of dogs. They are a style of slip collar and work in
the same manner as a choke chain. Long-wearing fabric is used for the body of the collar
with heavy reinforcement fabric on the inside for added strength. The ends are tapered to
allow the rings to slide smoothly. These collars are 2 1/4 inches wide. A limited
selection of colors is available in 1 ½ inch width.
important things are taken care of, the pretty part can be addressed. Fancy trims are
added to the foundation collar. Bright colors, subtle colors, the glitter of gold and
silver. Brass bells to say "Here I am" and swaying tassels. The possibilities
are limited only by your imagination.
With a little care your cloth collar should remain beautiful for a long
time. If it gets soiled, hand wash it in a mild detergent or soap. Like slip collars of
any kind, the cloth collars should not be left on an unattended dog.
Go to our descriptive pages to see a sampling of our cloth collars. Once
you decide on the basic collar you want, go to the Colors and Trims page to
choose the color and trim for your collar.
When properly fitted, the collar should slip easily over your hound's
head when going on and should seem a little snug when removed. Use a cloth or other
flexible tape measure and measure first where you think the collar should rest on your
dogs neck, then slide it off and on to make sure that it is a correct fit. That is
the measurement from which the collar will be made.
Please check our section on measuring.
