MEASURING FOR A DOG COLLAR
Get your dog to stand (if they refuse then our gourmet treats should do the trick!) 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.
 
Alternatively, if your dog has a collar that already fits perfectly, lay it out flat and measure from the buckle to your pet's preferred buckle hole.

 
CHOOSING THE PERFECT DOG COLLAR
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".

When choosing a collar for a puppy remember to choose one that is fully adjustable and provides lots of growing room to ensure comfort. All Prince & Princess dog collars have five or more buckle holes so you can find a snug and comfortable fit. 
 
Although it is recommended that you should always measure your pet before purchasing a new collar you may wish to check the breed guide for an idea of what size your pet will need.
 
 

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.
