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 best size to provide a fitting near the middle. If your dog’s measurement if near the largest or smallest fitting then select the nearest size 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 choose a custom fit with 5 holes we will make the sizing so that your measurement fits the middle hole of 5.
