Watch Mendota's video above for more detailed info on measuring for a collar. This video also gives a good overview of the various styles and products that Mendota makes, and how to use them.
Here is Mendota's great DuraSoft five-hole collar--for puppies and little dogs! For those who prefer the look and soft feel of leather but worry about water absorption and odor (or ethical considerations), Mendota's beautiful faux leather 'DuraSoft' five-hole collar is the answer. It behaves like soft, broken-in leather, but resists the moisture and odor associated with outside activity.
It sports a leather embossed surface for an elegant look and butter-soft feel that you and your dog will both appreciate, but underneath all those good looks lies a nylon webbing core, so you can rest assured that this collar will withstand all types of use and abuse. All edges, including holes, are heat-sealed to prevent peeling and cracking, and the collar is finished with a quality buckle and D-ring, constructed of nickel-plated brass hardware for long-lasting durability. Handcrafted in the U.S. using only the finest materials, ensuring premium performance.
We offer four colors
Black, Brown, Orange, and Yellow
3/4″ wide x 12" and 14" length
12-inch - Neck Size 10-14 Inches
14-inch - Neck Size 12-16 Inches
Before deciding the size, please take a moment to measure your dog's neck, using a cloth measuring tape or string, twine, etc. Measure, wrapping the tape or string about as tightly as the collar should sit on your dog's neck--not too tight. If using string, then hold the final length up to a ruler or yardstick to determine its length. If in doubt, go to the next larger size--you can always adjust a collar that is slightly too big, not so much with a collar that's too small. This will help prevent an exchange, which just wrecks everyone's day! : )
