Notes:

Please bring your pet’s neck measurement to class, one of two ways: 1) Using a strip of paper in the same width you’ve chosen for your collar (1.25”, 0.75” or 0.50"), wrap around your pet’s neck where you’d like the collar to lay. Do not pull tight and do not leave any slack…measure as you would yourself for a pair of pants. Mark or cut the paper to size. 2) Bring a current collar with you for size matching

Participants can choose to make a 1.25”, 0.75” or 0.50" wide leather collar with gold or silver tone hardware - Please specify choices in NOTES section at checkout no later than 2/19
