How To Choose The Right Size Dog Collar

Our leather dog collar sizes are literal measurements from the tip of the buckle tongue, to the middle hole.

The best way to pick the right size leather collar for your dog is to measure his or her current collar from the tip of the buckle tongue to the hole most used. You then need to match this up to the middle hole measurement on our dog collar to ensure that you pick the right size.

Below we have added the measurements of each size and style of dog collar, to help you make the right choose when picking the size of collar for your dog.

If you have any questions regarding our dog collar sizes, please don't hesitate to contact our Customer Service team on 0408 980 896.
