How to measure for a collar

How to measure for a collar:

The best way to measure your dog is using a soft tape measure. If you do not have one you can use a piece or string (or shoe lace) around the dog's neck and head and then measure the length of the string with a ruler.

Measurement A:  Around the widest part of the head. This is essential for house collars and martingale collars as these will slip over the dogs head and do not open

Measurement B: Behind the ears around the thinnest part of the neck.

Measurement C: Around the base of the neck at the widest point where the collar will sit. Use this measurement when choosing a braided tag collar

Collars are adjustable so when ordering choose the size that fits best with all these measurements. If you require smaller or larger collars then you can request these when ordering via the Create your Own Collar listings by selecting 'other neck size' and specifying your requirements

How to measure for a coat:


Using a soft tape measure note down the measurement between the shoulder blades (Point A) and the base of the tail (Point B) in inches and this will be the coat size.

If the measurement is inbetween sizes or you require a longer fit then choose the next size up

To measure for a harness hole start from Point A, which will be the start of the neck of the coat, and down to where the D ring of the harness is. The harness holes measure approx. 2 inches and your measurement will then be approximately the centre of the hole
