The best method is to measure the dogs neck directly. Take a measuring tape and wrap it around your dogs neck just where you would like the collar to sit. No need to add extra room or pull tight, we will make it adjust comfortably from the dogs actual neck size.
You can also measure from a current collar your pet wears. If measuring from a leather collar, measure from the fold in the leather (by the buckle) to the hole that is most used and the best fit for your dog. Measure a nylon collar from the start of the material on one end to the end of the buckle on the other end. See the pictures below.
Select the size that puts your dogs neck size in the center. If your dog measures 15", select 14-16". If your dog is young and may grow, select their neck size as the first hole, so if they currently measure 15", select 15-17". That will give them room to grow.
We use solid brass and nickel-plated solid brass hardware for our collars. These center-bar buckles and D-rings are tested for strength and durability. We use chicago screws with Loctite permanent rivet glue to ensure our collars are as durable and strong as they are beautiful. The safety and comfort of your dog is our top priority!
