For the perfect fit!

*All measurements are to be done in Inches for dogs and CM for cats*

Our collars are individually handcrafted with BioThane® and are available in widths of 3/8" (0.96CM), 5/8”(1.58CM) and 1”(2.55CM). All our collars are made to order therefore please measure your pet’s neck according to the guidelines below to ensure a proper fit. All 3/8 collars have holes punched at 1cm intervals with the 5/8 collars having holes punched 0.5 inches apart and the 1 inch counterpart having holes punched at 0.75 inch intervals.

Measure your pet's old collar from the top of the buckle to the most commonly used hole in Inches, alternatively you could use a tape measure or string and run it along the diameter of your dog's neck with enough room to fit about one finger underneath. Following this then proceed to hold the marked point on the string and take the measurements in inches. ​

*Collars are all fitted with a roller buckle style closure for a classic look with 5 punched holes that are 0.75 inches apart!*

Method 1

In order to get your measurements with a measuring tape, first, start by wrapping the tape around your pet's neck where the collar would be with just enough room to comfortably place two fingers underneath. The inches mark achieved is now the middle pin hole for your new collar!

Method 2 (A)

This method is primarily for those who do not have a measuring tape and are alternatively using a piece of string/rope/shoelace/etc.

Similar to the measuring tape method, you'll want to loop your chosen string around your pet's neck where the collar will be placed whilst being able to comfortably fit about two fingers underneath. Follow up to this by then marking where the string coincides with its counterpart.

Method 2 (B)

Following the previous step, you'll then want to lay the string down across a ruler or tape measure and accurately note down the length in inches.

That's it! You now have the length for your brand new collar!

Slip Collar Guide

1. Please measure the circumference of your dog’s neck (A) in inches allowing enough room for 2 fingers underneath.

 

2. Next, measure the circumference of the widest part of your dog’s head (B) in inches allowing enough room for 2 fingers underneath. This measurement needs to be as accurate as possible as the collar is required to slide on and off your dog’s head comfortably.

 

3. Your preferred collar size will be the larger of your “A” or “B” measurements. If you prefer a more relaxed fit, please adjust the measurements accordingly. Decimal values are accepted eg. 23.5 inches.

 

Please take note that these collars are not adjustable therefore it is imperative that the measurements are done as accurately as possible.

Method 3

One of the easiest methods will be to measure your cats current collar. To do this you'll want to measure the collar from end to end whilst ignoring any points that may overlap; essentially measuring any part that is in direct contact with your pet.
