- Ensuring a proper neck measurement is key to selecting a collar that fits your dog perfectly.
- Collars are not sized by overall length, they're sized by dog's neck.
- All collars are made differently, so do not measure the overall length of your existing dog collar.
Place the measuring tape snug against your dog's neck. Measure your dog's neck in the middle of the neck, not too high up (close to the head) and not too far down (close to the shoulders). Otherwise this can results in a collar that is too small or too big.
If you do not have a measuring tape, you can use a string. Place the string around your dog's neck and mark the measure. Then measure the string flat with a traditional tape measure or ruler.
There's no need to add extra length "just in case". Remember, when selecting the size of collar, to choose a size for which your dog's neck measurement is in the middle of the size range.
