How to measure your dog for a collar.

There are a couple of ways you can measure your dog for a new collar. First please note that every manufacturer uses their own size guide so a small from one place may be a medium from somewhere else. So its important to measure when using a company that you have not used before. 

Method 1.

Take your dogs old collar off, lay flat on a table and measure from end to end. Choose a collar length that sits comfortably in between the adjustable sizes. If its close to the top number then go a size up. If it is close to the bottom number then size down. 

Not sure? Prefer a custom size? Then get in touch and we will be happy to help you.

Method 2.

Take a tape measure and carefully measure round your dogs neck where their collar sits. Remember to add 2 fingers worth for comfort to the final measurement (one finger for small and xs collars).
