DOG COLLAR SIZE GUIDE

Pick the right sized dog collar by following this guide. DO NOT USE YOUR DOG’S PREVIOUS COLLAR SIZE as manufacturers use different methods to measure them. Ideally you want to measure your dog’s neck as shown below. Alternatively you can refer to our average neck size list per dog breeds. In the event that a collar or belt you purchased does not fit we accept exchanges. Please call us first. The item must not have been used and must be shipped back immediately. Buyer pays for all shipping. If you have any questions please call or email us. We’re always there to help.

How to Choose the Right Collar Size for Your Dogs

A COLLAR IS MEASURED FROM THE END OF THE LEATHER TO THE MIDDLE HOLE

A DOG WITH A NECK SIZE OF 20″ GETS A 20″ COLLAR

  • A collar is measured from the end of the leather near the buckle to the middle hole
  • Collars are sized in two inch increments in even lengths, 18″ 20″ 22″ etc
  • If your dog has a 18 1/2″ neck then it gets a 18″ collar
  • If your dog has a 19″ or 19 1/2″ neck it gets a 20″ collar
