Lease refer to the image below.

How To Fit Dog Collars

We measure the leather and do not include the buckle. We begin our measurements at the start of the leather where the center bar of the buckle goes through the leather and measure down to the middle hole of the dog collar.



When measuring your dog’s neck, measure at the bottom of the neck close to the shoulders where the collar will rest. If you don’t have a cloth measuring tape, you can use a string and then measure the length of the string with a ruler. 



Allow room for two fingers between your dog’s neck and the collar so it will not be too tight on your dog’s neck. The collar should also not be too loose that it can slide over your dogs head.
