For my monsters, I stick with 3/4 in and below. They're usually in harnesses though.

Meg's 36 lbs, and I can barely tolerate 1" on her! I buy 3/4" whenever I can. A few fancy collars, including her Paco are 1", but I always think it looks like a neck brace on her.

I'd maybe just check in with the owner, confirm the size again and make sure she is aware that you are saying she may think it is too thick. That way you are at least covered if she gets it and decides she doesn't like the size.

And pictures will be required.

I agree! On the big dogs I work with we usually use 3/4" collars, the 1" ones seem so bulky!

OK, guys.
This is the first time I've worked with leather this thin, and it's different than working with thicker leathers.
And, uh, as I said, there is only so much decorating that can be done on a small dog collar.


It's very small, it only looks big because the pic was close up, and it's been cropped which makes it even bigger looking.

My little guys say they'll gladly be test subjects LOL

I like the bigger widths personally. Though I somehow have it in my head that it makes the collars stronger so they can't be broken or something. I dunno I'm weird.
