HOW TO MEASURE:
To ensure you order the correct collar size please use this easy to follow guide:
1) Using your dog’s own collar, place it around your dog’s neck and note which hole is the comfortable fit.
2) Take the collar off and lay it flat.
3) Use a taut tape measure or ruler: start your measurement at the top of the buckle and measure straight down to the hole you noted.
This measurement tells you the best size for your dog. If you would like the fit to be slightly looser or tighter, add or subtract a little accordingly. Compare this measurement to the size chart and select the size that will provide a fitting near the middle of the fitting.
If your dog’s measurement is on, or near, the tightest or loosest hole then select the collar size that will be closest to your dog’s measurement and add a customized option to get a perfect fit.
As an example, this diagram shows that the dog comfortably wears his collar on the second to the last hole. The measurement is taken from the top of the buckle to the worn hole.
If you select a custom fit with 5 holes we will make the sizing so that your measurement fits the middle hole of 5.
Alternatively, if your dog is full-grown, you can choose to have just 3 holes, making the comfortable fit to the centre hole of 3, with extra crystal covering the space where the other 2 holes would normally be maximizing the amount of crystal that is seen.
N.B. Diamond Dogs (U.K) Ltd. cannot be held responsible for any measurement you provide. Custom made collars are non-refundable. Please provide your dog’s correct collar measurement taken according to our instructions. The entire length of the collar or any other measurement is irrelevant.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR PURCHASE:
Please take a moment to read our Care & Guarantee booklet that comes with every purchase. This style has crystal settings that will not withstand scratching, rubbing or abrasion. Even dogs who don’t normally scratch at their collars may be inclined to do so when your purchase is brand new as its weight and the feel of the leather will be different to their usual collar. Please prevent your dog from engaging in these activities as it could lead to a loss of crystal or more extensive damage to the underlying metalwork. Lost crystals can be replaced but damage to the metalwork affects the integrity of your purchase and may not always be repairable. With just a little care you will enjoy a very long life for your Diamond Dogs’ purchases.
