    • Breakaway / Safety Buckle Clasp — (the most common type for cat collars). This type has a safety feature that allows it to automatically pop open if tugged on hard enough / breaks away at ~11 lbs of tensile force - (this unit of measurement is not related to the pet's weight)). Safety breakaway buckles are designed to prevent a choking hazard if the pet's collar gets caught on something. This option will look just like what you see in the photos.
    • Non-Breakaway Buckle Clasp — (the most common type for dog collars). This fastener does not tug open - it stays securely in place. Select NON-breakaway if using the collar with a leash or you do not want any chance of the collar auto-releasing when tugged on. This option will look just like what you see in the photos.
    • Collar Hardware Accents - (in silver or gold)
      Our cat collars include a metal split ring (as shown) for attaching optional tags/bell + metal length adjuster.
    • Our dog collars include a metal D-ring (for attaching a leash or tags) + metal length adjuster.

AMAZING & Fashionable

My boys have been wearing Made By Cleo bow ties and collars for almost 5 years now. All of their bowties are amazing! This velvet bowtie and collar is off the charts. It’s very sturdy, soft and high quality! The overall of all Made By Cleo’s product quality, pricing, and customer care, is 110% wonderful. I have not shopped for a single collar or bowtie anywhere else since we found Made By Cleo. ❤️


I love it! The fabric is very soft, and the collar overall appears sturdy. The depth of the shade I purchased the collar is very similar to the depth of my cat's coat, so if you have also have a black cat, you might want to simply consider purchasing the velvet set in a different shade so more visible. The color does appear more vibrant in direct sunlight, and more like pictured on the site!

Sizing & Hardware Options

Standard Collar Sizes (listed in inches)

The numbers listed below represent the shortest & longest adjustable length range for the neck size options we offer. We strongly recommend measuring your pet's neck before ordering, if this is your first time. Tip: A simple piece of string or ribbon (or equivalent flexible household item) can be used to assess the collar length your pet needs -- then measure the amount of string you used, laid out flat alongside a straight ruler. Often, customers may not realize their pet is smaller (or larger) than average prior to measuring!

If your pet is in-between sizes, select the closest size from the dropdown menu, but be sure to provide your pet's exact neck size measurements in the "Special Instructions" message box (on the Cart page before checkout) so that our seamstresses can make any necessary custom sizing adjustments to ensure an optimal fit for your pet. We'll take care of it as long as you give us the measurements!

Kitten 6-10" (inches) Fits small cats
Adult Cat 8-13" (inches) Fits average-sized & larger cats
XL Cat 12-16" (inches) Fits extra large, big cats
Tiny Dog 6-10" (inches) Fits very small pups (measure to be sure)
Mini Dog 8-13" (inches) Fits Chihuahuas, Yorkies, toy breeds
Small Dog 12-16" (inches) Fits Beagles, Jack Russell Terriers, Pugs

A Note About Adding "Slide" Tags to Collars: If ordering a personalized slide tag name plate to be put on your collar, the length of the tag will reduce the maximum length of the collar by 1.5 inches. If your pet's neck size is very close to the maximum of a certain size range and you plan to get a slide tag with the collar - to avoid any fit issues, we recommend ordering the next size up, or adding a note in the "Order Notes" box (located on the Cart page before checkout) to let us know your pet's exact neck size so our studio can make any necessary adjustments as needed.


Collar Terminology & Options

"Size" refers to the collar's adjustable length (in inches).Note: The standard width of our collars is 1/2", regardless of the size option / length you select. To see a quick demo on how to adjust the size of your pet collar and achieve an optimal fit, watch the video below.


"Buckle Type" refers to the black or white standard plastic side-release clasp shown in all collar product photos in our store. On every collar product page, you will be given the option to select whether you prefer a "Breakaway" or "Non-Breakaway" plastic buckle clasp. Both types look the same as what you see in the photos — the difference has to do with the internal pronged mechanism, which makes them function differently. See the illustration below to compare the visual differences. Please Note: The details regarding the differences shown below will apply whether it's pertaining to a white or black buckle clasp:

The functional differences are as follows:

"Hardware" accent color refers to the various standard metal components that are part of the pet collar— i.e. the collar length adjuster, the round split ring for cat collars (or D-ring for dog collars), and the included removable bell. Note: The hardware color choices do NOT apply to the plastic buckle clasp - the buckle will always be plastic (unless you specifically order a metal buckle upgrade to go with your collar).
