Since we sell dog and cat products from a range of top quality, upmarket suppliers, we aim to provide the most accurate size guidance depending on the brand.
Dogs come in a range of shapes and sizes just like we do! There are a lot of variations in size even amongst a particular breed and this means there are no standard sizes. We stock a lot of different manufacturers and they each have their own sizing for their products.
We can give you the basic measurements but if you have any questions about the size, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before making your purchase.
The three important measurements for your dog are his/her back, chest and neck
Back -this is the length of your dog’s back from the top of the spine (high part of the back between the shoulders) to the base of the tail where the tail joins the body.
Chest-This should be measured all of the way around the biggest part of your dog’s ribcage.
Neck-This is taken where your dog’s collar would naturally rest. Measure a complete circle around your dog neck. It is suggested that you take your dog’s actual neck measurement and add approximately 5cm to get the actual collar size you need for your dog.
Always ensure that you can slip two fingers between the collar and your dog’s neck.
Below are general guidelines for you to judge the size of your dog’s collar
