Dog Collar Sizing

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOG COLLAR

All dogs are different and vary in their size, just as people vary in size and shape. Here is a general guideline to fit your dog appropriately for a dog collar. For a proper fit, measure your dog's neck with a cloth seamstress's tape measure. (If you do not have a tape measure, you can use a piece of string and then measure the string with a rigid ruler.) 

  • If you still have the old collar, measure that to use as a guide. Otherwise…
  • Take a measurement a few inches down from his head and then add an inch for very small dogs or two inches for medium and large dogs.
  • Pull the tape snug but not tight.
  • Allow sufficient room to slip two fingers between the collar and the dog's neck. Or you can measure his neck and add two inches.
  • When the collar is on his neck it should allow you to slide two fingers under a properly fitting collar and your dog's neck. If there's extra room, you need a smaller size. If both fingers don't fit, the collar is too small.
