I want my customers to receive a well fitting collar which is why it is extremely important that the measurement that is entered at "neck measurement" is correct, please do not make the mistake of entering the overall collar length wanted or giving the size stamped on the end of an existing collar. Collar size cannot be changed once the item has been made.
The best way to measure is to take a soft tape measure and either measure your dog`s existing collar from where the leather starts at the buckle (do not include the buckle) and measure to the hole being used, then enter that measurement, or with a soft tape measure around your dogs neck at the point where the collar will sit, do not pull the tape too tight or have it loose.
Measurements for a check collar are taken differently as the chain section opens up, the measurement for a check should be taken at the smallest point on the neck which will then allow the leather section to pull tight when being used.
My collars are made to your order selections, I make them up for you allowing for growth if your dog is not adult (under 2 years), please do not add anything to the measurement taken for growth as I will not know you have done this, there is a measurement guide you can refer to should you be unsure or telephone me if you have any concerns or questions.
