Dog Collars – Size Guide

Buying a perfect-fit dog collar can be overwhelming. With so many options, colors, designs and materials, there are so many decisions to be made! Whether you’re deciding between a K9 dog collar with original Cobra click or Classic dog collar with belt buckle, the most important decision to be made when buying a new collar is the SIZE.

No matter how trendy or cute a collar can be, it can be very dangerous, if it’s not the right size. A collar that is too loose will allow your dog to squirm his way out and get off leash. Collars that are too tight can be uncomfortable or even cut off the airway in extreme cases. And be sure to ofteh check your dogs collar, if the fit is perfect or not, as it can get lose by time.

Our collars are based on actual neck size, not collar length. When choosing the size of the collar, measure the neck size with cloth measuring tape. If you don’t have on, use a string and then measure it with a ruler. When measuring, do not let two fingers in between, but measure the exact circumference of the neck. 

Once you have measured the circumference of your dogs neck,  choose a collar size that fits the middle. Example: if you have measured the circumference the neck 49cm, choose size XL: 45-55cm. If you are still not shure when choosing a size, please give us a call or contact us, and we will find the right size for your dog

Are you ordering a K9 collar?

When ordering your K9 collar, please consider the following guidelines when selecting the appropriate size. It’s important to note that K9 collars are adjustable, which makes them versatile and suitable for dogs of different sizes.

If the collar does not have any accessory (embroidery or additional handle), then the collar is adjustable by almost 20 cm. So, even if your dog has a neck circumference of 40 cm and you choose an XL collar (45-55 cm), it will be fine. Such a collar actually accompanies the dog from a puppy (6 months old) all the way to adulthood.

However, if the collar has an additional name embroidery or an additional handle, then this regulation of the collar is not so flexible, and is actually adjustable by 10 cm. In such cases, it’s important to measure your dog’s neck circumference accurately to ensure the perfect fit.

When selecting the size of the collar, always try to choose the middle size option. This allows for more adjustability in case of weight fluctuations or growth spurts.

Our K9 collars are available in three different widths: 2.5cm, 4cm, and 5cm. The 4cm width is suitable for medium or large breeds, offering a balanced and comfortable fit. The wider 5cm option is recommended for large breeds or those seeking a more robust appearance. And the newest addition is a narrow 25mm (2.5cm) wide K9 collar designed specifically for smaller dogs. All our collars feature the original cobra buckle, ensuring durability and security.

Are you ordering a REGULAR collar?

Regular collars are simple yet elegant, and they increase or decrease according to the holes. Each collar has five holes, with a difference of 2.5 cm between them. So, it’s a total of 10 cm difference in size.

When choosing a Regular collar, always choose a size where your measured size falls in the center hole. This will ensure the perfect fit and maximum adjustability.

When selecting a regular collar for your dog, precise measurements are of utmost importance to ensure the well-being and comfort of your dog. A collar that is too big poses a potential safety risk as it may easily slip off your dog’s head. On the other hand, a collar that is too narrow can be uncomfortable and even harmful for your dog. It may cause discomfort, skin irritation, or even injury if too tight.

So, when measuring your dog’s neck, be meticulous in your approach. Double-check the measurements to avoid any errors that could lead to an ill-fitting collar.

Also, the regular collar come in 3 widths – 3cm, 4cm and 5cm.

Choosing the right size collar for your dog is crucial to their comfort, safety, and overall well-being. By following the guidelines provided in this size guide, pet owners can make informed decisions and find the perfect fit for their canine companion. Always remember to measure your dog’s neck circumference accurately and choose the middle size option for K9 collars and the center hole for classic collars. With the right size collar, you can ensure that your furry friend is safe, secure, and stylish!
