THE PERFECT FIT FOR YOUR FURRY FRIEND!
When buying a new collar for your dog it’s necessary to find the correct collar size to ensure an optimal fit and comfort.
Use a flexible tape measure, wrap the tape measure around the widest part of your dog’s neck. Allow enough free space between the collar and your dog by placing two fingers under the tape measure. Lay your fingers flat against your dog’s neck.
Write down the measurements and decide the right size for the dog collar based on our sizing chart above.
The measurement of your dog’s neck, including two fingers, comes to 32 cm. Then the collar you choose should have a diameter of 30 – 36 cm, meaning that the first hole of the collar will give you a measurement of 29.5 cm, and the last hole 35.5 cm in diameter. This collar will allow enough space for adjustments to make for a perfect fit for your dog.
All our collars are measured without the buckle. This provides you the exact measurement of the collar when worn
CARING FOR PROPER ERGONOMICS
We’re often asked why our collars are that wide and if they only are for sighthounds. The wideness of our dog collars is good for many different breeds not only sighthounds. The width of the collars gives good support and protection on your dog’s neck and windpipe and a wider surface area spreads out the force and helps to prevent injuries.
Also a wider collar can make the dog stop pulling or pull less, the width of the collar gives a more comfortable feeling and less a strangle feeling that a thin collar can give and then make the dog stressful and also make them pull more. Even our “thin” collars we’ve made a little bit wider over the middle part of the collar just to make it extra ergonomic even for smaller dogs with short neck that can’t wear our “wide” collars.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or recommendations regarding sizes, measurements etc. We are always open ears for our customers =)
