How To Measure
How to Measure your Dog For A Coat or Collar
A dog’s coat size is measured from the base of the neck to the base of the tail. Be sure that your dog is standing squarely on the ground with its head up to get an accurate measurement. Measure the dog from the base of the neck to the end of the body while your dog is relaxed and looking ahead.
If your dog's length is in the middle of one of our sizes (for example, 29 inches), order according to how you dog carries his/her tail -- if your dog carries the tail up, round down (to 28 inches). If your dog’s tail naturally hangs down, round up (to 30 inches).
How to Measure Your Dog For A Collar
If you have an existing collar, measure from the hole that is used most often to the end of the collar.
If you do not have an existing collar, put a tape measure comfortably around your dog's neck. Make it snug enough so it will not slip over your dog's head, but loose enough to fit two fingers between the neck and collar.
Once you have your measurement, round the number up to the nearest even number. For instance, if your measurement is 23.25” then you would choose a 24” collar. When ordering your collar take into account the age of your dog. With younger or growing pups, you should buy a collar one to two inches bigger to allow for growth.
