Collar Sizing Guide

Measuring for a Chain Collar

It’s import to get the correct measurement of your dog’s neck size before ordering. The best and most accurate way is to use a fabric tape measure. This allows you to accurately measure the circumference of your dogs neck.

We always recommend going for the next size up. For example, if your dogs neck measures 20″ then ordering the 22″ which most likely offer a more comfortable fit.

Please ensure that the size you purchase is larger than your dog’s neck, but SMALLER than their overall head size. This will prevent the collar from slipping off.

Some people prefer to have additional slack on their collars for aesthetic purposes. This is normally achieved by adding between 1-3″ to the required size. Please keep in mind that if the collar is larger than your dog’s head, it could slip off.

 

How to measure using their current collar:

Do not measure end to end.  This is a very common mistake
Measure from the spot indicated below on the ‘male’ end of the buckle (This is where the end of the female side of the connector meets the male side) to the whole you currently have your dog’s collar on.

Please remember to allow for some slack for comfort.

How to measure using a cable or string:

This can be easily done by grabbing nearby cable or piece of string and measuring either the centre or the smaller area of your dogs neck up behind the ears. If you measure the thicker area by the shoulders the collar may not adjust smaller and it will slip over your dogs head. Please ensure to leave enough space so it’s not too tight (two fingers between the collar and neck should suffice). After you have done this then just use a tape measure to measure the cable or string and get your dogs neck size.
