Tartan Check Dog Collar
How to Measure for a Dog Collar
Take a soft measuring tape and measure the circumference of your pet's neck, close to the shoulder where the collar will sit. When you take the measurement, the tape measure should be loose enough to fit one or two fingers comfortably underneath. Make sure that the tape can't slip over the dog’s ears. If you don't have a soft measuring tape, use a piece of string, mark your dog's neck measurement, and then measure the string against a ruler.
Choosing the Perfect Size
All Prince & Princess dog collars are sized in inches from the first to the last hole. For a perfect fit, select a collar size range that your dog's neck measurement sits in the middle of. For example if your dog's neck measurement was 14", then a 12-16" sized collar will provide a perfect fit. If your dog's neck measurement was 16" we would recommend getting the next size up, a 16-18".
Still a Perfect Fit?
After wearing a new collar for a short time, check your dog’s neck. If your dog has any redness or hair loss under the collar then adjust the collar to make it bigger. It is especially important to regularly check the fit of a puppy's collar, as they can out-grow a collar very quickly.
Buying Pet Collars Based on Breed
The size chart below is a guide only, it is always recommended that dogs are measured before choosing a new collar, as all pets are unique and therefore may not fit into their breed's 'standard' size. Furthermore, within breeds, there will be some variation between the genders with females being smaller (sometimes one or two sizes smaller than males of the same breed.)
