DOG COLLAR: TIPS FOR MEASURING
When it comes to finding the perfect collar for your dog, getting the right size is essential. A collar that is too tight can be uncomfortable and restrict your dog's movement, while a collar that is too loose may slip off or pose a safety risk. To ensure a proper fit, follow these guidelines:

1. MEASURE YOUR DOG'S NECK

Using a flexible measuring tape, measure the circumference of your dog's neck. Make sure to measure at the base of the neck, where the collar will sit. There should always be enough room between the pet’s neck and the collar to slip one to two fingers between them comfortably. This ensures that the collar isn't too tight. Make a note of the measurement in inches or centimeters.

2. CONSIDER YOUR DOG'S GROWTH AND FUR

If your dog is still growing, it's best to choose a larger size to accommodate their future growth. Additionally, if your dog has a lot of fur around their neck or experiences weight fluctuations throughout the year, consider these factors when selecting a size.

3. IN BETWEEN SIZES?

If your dog's neck measurement falls in between two sizes, it's recommended to choose the larger size.

4. SIZE RANGE COLLARS (BUCKLE COLLARS)

For collars with a size range, it's best to choose the range where your dog's measurement is close to the middle. This allows for adjustments both up and down, providing a better fit.

5. FIXED-SIZE COLLARS

For collars with a fixed size, it is very important to obtain an accurate measurement of your dog's neck where the collar is normally worn, as these collars are NOT adjustable. Take into consideration the thickness of the dog's fur to be certain you are getting an accurate measurement of the dog's neck.

Remember, a properly fitting collar should be snug enough to stay in place, but not too tight that it causes discomfort or restricts your dog's movement. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your dog's collar fits comfortably and securely.
