Collar Size Guide

Even though you can expect some degree of adjustability with your new dog collar, it is important to measure your dog carefully.

If you are satisfied with the fit of your dog’s current collar, measure that collar from the center bar of the buckle to the farthest hole. Our collars are sized from the center bar of the buckle to the farthest hole (See diagram above).

If this is your dog’s first collar or you need a collar in a different size, measure around the dog’s neck just as you would like the new collar to fit. The collar shouldn’t be so tight that it will cause discomfort or loose enough to slide over the dog’s head.

Martingale Collar Size Guide

Measure carefully as these collars are sized differently than standard collars with buckles.

When measuring Martingale Round/Rolled Collars and Martingale Shearling Lined Collars, keep in mind the collar needs to slip over your dog’s head as there is no buckle.

First, measure the widest part of your dog’s head. Next, measure your dog’s neck as you would for a standard, buckle-style collar.  Use the larger of the measurements to select a collar that fits between the ranges listed.

Sizes Fit Range
10” 5-1/2” to 10”
12” 7-1/2” to 12”
14” 10” to 14”
16” 12” to 16”
18” 12” to 18”
20” 14” to 20”
22” 16” to 22”
24” 18” to 24”
26” 20” to 26”

Other things to consider

  • Remember that puppies grow quickly, so it is important to check the tightness of your dog collars.
  • Inspect and replace a collar or a leash as soon as it shows signs of wear that threatens the integrity of the collar/leash.
