Black Dog designed and manufactures the Official Collar for the most of the Australian Greyhound Adoption Programs and we've used this experience to produce our Sighthound Collar (for Greyhounds, Afghans, Saluki, Borzoi, etc).
Because the head size of most of these breeds is smaller than their neck, keeping a collar securely fitted can pose problems, this design will tighten if a dog tries to slip its collar, while the extra thick webbing and tapered throat pad ensures that your dog's neck and soft hair are protected and supported.
While this collar is designed specifically for Sighthounds, it may also be used on many soft haired breeds such as Vizslas, GSP's, or Dobermanns, as long as the collar is large enough to be fitted over the dog's head. An alternative for these dogs would be our Turtle Neck or Tuffy Collars - wide neck pad, but clips on to fit around the neck on dogs with a larger head.
Please Note: Sighthound Collars are not available in Apple Green.
This is due to our commitments to the Greyhound Adoption Programs around Australia which use Apple Green as their official colour collar. GAP collars are only awarded to dogs who have successfully completed GAP retraining programs for retired racing greyhounds and are used by rangers to quickly identify these retrained greyhounds.
Black Dog has undertaken not to produce Apple Green Sighthound and Whippet Collars to help maintain the integrity of these retraining and adoption programs.
