We have that collar and I was unsure about width, but the 1.25" really doesn't seem much wider than 1" ime. Z generally only wears up to 1" collars but I popped ours on her to see how it fits and it still looks snazzy and didn't seem to faze her. Z is 15.5" at the shoulder and 23lbs. Her neck size is 12.5" and from the base of her ear to the edge of her shoulder blades is 4".



Obviously it's a bit long on Z since it's sized for Kes, but you get the idea.

I definitely think he can rock it!

I ordered Rylie a 3/4 inch collar that tapers to 1/2, and she's a 4lb dog. If she can rock that, than Frodo can rock 1.25 inches!

Sizzle, she IS a munchkin! lol
Frodo is 29 pounds!

Stardogs, thank you thank you thank you for posting those. That makes the decision for tapering easy! Looks great from the back and heavy in the front.

Quote:
Tapering 1.25" down to 3/4" would certainly make it more "size appropriate". The 3/4" buckles are a nice double-bar, where the 1 inch would be a heavier halter buckle.
So that means that the buckle and D-ring would be smaller on the tapered one, right?

Becca, can I be a complete PITA and ask if you have any pics of a collar that is 1.25" and is tapered to 3/4"?

*le sigh*

OOOkay, I'm convinced, now I just need to wait for a few days before I order it so that I can file it under responsible purchase and not impulse purchase.

I think he could do it (: I love Quinn's 1.25" Ravenclaw collar - it is such a good width for her. Maybe a tad heavy on the bottom of her neck though (but I don't find her 1" too heavy - funny how much of a difference a quarter of an inch makes!). I'm asking for another Ella's Lead collar for my birthday but I'm torn on width - I'm thinking either 1" or a tapered 1.25".

Tallulah's is 2" wide, tapered down to 1 1/2". I find I really love the look of the tapering.

Pretty much every collar Saga gets from here on out will be tapered. Her 1.5 EL collar is tapered down to one inch, as is her CM martingale. Matter of fact, the pink martingale she had on at your house was a 1.5 to a 1 inch. It makes a huge difference. There is a store in Des Moines that sells 2Hounds martingales and I tried them on her. They aren't tapered and seemed too much like a neckbrace for her. A couple of years ago, I was at the Pet expo and there was a lady selling the tapered martingales, which is where I got her pink one and it looked a lot different on her.
