All you need is a tape measure ...
Yes, fitting your dog for our collars is as easy as 1-2-3! Avoid the need to return/exchange by using this guide before you buy.
Use a soft measuring tape. If you don't have a soft measuring tape, cut a strip of paper or string and then lie that against a straight rule. We also have a Collar Sizing Guide by Dog Breed that offers size recommendations based on AKC standards.
For Our Quick-Release Dog Collars:
Measure the portion of your dogs neck where the collar will naturally rest. Then add another 2", and that's the size collar you should target when shopping. For example, if your dogs neck is 10 inches, you should look for a collar of at least 12" or larger so that you can size it down to fit. If you have a puppy, go for at least 4" larger so that the collar will last a while before you have to buy his/her adult collar. Once on your dog, make sure you can fit a couple of fingers in between the dogs neck and the collar.
For Our Martingale Dog Collars, watch our video, Fitting your Dog for our Martingale Collars on our martingale sizing page.
NOTE: If your dog's head/neck size is the same (or close) to the maximum size of our collars, play it safe - go for the next size up. You can always size our collars down to nearly half their maximum size.
