How do I measure my dog's neck?

Each collar is tailor made to fit your dog. In order to get the best fit, we ask that you provide your dog's current neck size. In order to get the most accurate measurement, we suggest using a soft measuring tape.

1. With your dog either sitting or standing, wrap the measuring tape around the center of the neck.
2. Make sure the measuring take is snug around their neck.
3. The end, marked 0, should overlap the measuring tape. Where is lands is your dog's neck measurement
4. If the measurement lies between 2 number, round up if it is 1/2 or greater or round down if it is less than halfway between. 

Which rope thickness should I choose?

We offer 4 different rope thicknesses to accommodate all dogs. Each width is based on the weight of your dog.
