My Adjustable Buckle and Tab fastening Half Check Collars (martingale collars) do up like a normal collar and are made for the Leather Section plus rings to pull closed to the neck measurement that is entered on the middle hole of the adjustment if your dog is Adult (over 2 years of age) which allows for the collar to be adjusted either smaller or larger than the measurement entered should that be needed. If younger than 2 years of age I will allow for more growth by making the neck measurement as either the first or 2nd hole of adjustment depending on the age given, the tab end has 5 holes which provide a 3" range of adjustment. The Collar will encircle the neck firmly in the tightened state when pulling against a lead (see picture on left) however the Collar will hang loose around the neck when the chain section is allowed to open up if not attached to a lead or the pressure on the lead is slackened (see picture on right).
To measure for an Adjustable Half Check Collar please take the measurement with a soft tape pulled reasonably tight at the smallest part of your dogs neck which is up behind the ears (so it does not strangle your dog but is not too loose) then enter that measurement when ordering, the Collar Leather Section and rings will be made to pull closed in the tightened state to that measurement for you although the collar will adjust via the extra holes available. The chain section of the collar when allowed to slacken will open the Collar up by a further 10.2cm (4") allowing the collar to drop to the base of the neck and hang loose around the neck when in the relaxed state and is made of 2.5mm Solid Brass Chain Links.
