COLLAR SIZING GUIDELINES

Dog Collars

Just like us, no two dogs are ​the same. We have provided a guideline for which size dog collar will fit the breed of dog. The guide should help you select your collar, but we recommend measuring your dog before ordering, to be sure.

Measuring for your dog for a collar:

  • Ensure your dog is standing still

  • Measure using a fabric tape measure or string

  • Measure the neck line at the base of the neck

  • If measuring collars, add one / two cm’s (one to two fingers) for your dog to be comfortable (depending on the size of the dog. For very large dogs, you may want to go up to 5cm / 4 fingers space.
