This is a very strong grooming noose loop, ALL breeds can use this. I sew the snaphook in securely. I only use the larger SILVER snaphook you see in the photo. This can be used by dog groomers or at dog shows for a special look on your grooming table. This is made of nylon. The nylon lead thickness is 3/16". It will fit a 20" head. If you need it larger, please specify in the special instructions box. I will put 5 large hole beads on this. I will match the crystals and beads to the cord color the best I can. I do not have a lot of choices in crystal colors, and especially in gold. If you want gold beading, I will use what I have, my choice.
