  • How To Measure For a Collar
  

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR PET FOR A COLLAR

I often receive questions as to which size is right for a particular breed. Whilst I will happily offer advice and information, the ultimate decision has to rest with you the customer for a number of reasons.

The accurate sizing can only be made if the actual pet is measured.

The main reason for this is because pets of the same breed may differ and have different sizes based on length, height, weight and so forth. The same dog apparel will fit dogs of different breeds and same weight differently. Pets also differ according to breed. Also manufactures sizes vary for example: a certain breed may fit a small for one manufacturer, but may be a medium for another.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON HOW TO MEASURE FOR A COLLAR

You must measure your pet when it is standing up.

You won't get accurate measurements if the pet is sitting or lying down.

Weight should be used as a guideline only as it will not give an accurate length or width.

A previous collar which still fits comfortably is a good starting place if you want to measure your pet for a new collar, however manufacturers do vary on measurements depending on a particular product. For your pet's safety and for maximum comfort, please measure for a new dog collar by measuring your dog's neck.

As a general guide, you should be able to fit two fingers (flat) easily between the collar itself and your dog's neck.  A collar shouldn't be tight around your dog's neck and it wouldn't be the exact measurement of your dog's neck.  For safety reasons, so it doesn't snag on something, it shouldn’t be too loose either. A snug fit is what you are aiming for.

Collar sizes are the overall size of the collar. Please measure the dog’s neck - allow for no more than two fingers space between collar and dogs neck otherwise the dog will invariably slip its collar and also; all leather will 'give' a little over time.

CAT COLLARS ARE USUALLY 12"/30CM AND SHOULD FIT MOSTS CATS COMFORTABLY.
