Size Guide


We would recommend the best way to measure is to measure their neck without the existing collar in place. Take a flexible tape measure and place around your dog’s neck, please keep 2 fingers underneath the tape when measuring to give growing space. Let the tape sit where your dog normally wears their collar and please do not pull it tight or upwards you to see the measurement as it has to sit correctly and so you will have the natural measurement for a new collar. We do not recommend to measure their existing collar as each manufacturer has their own way in making collars. If you have a new puppy you will find that they grow remarkably quickly and it may be prudent to purchase a dog collar that has room for growth.



We make by hand our rope The Following is an approximate guide only and taken from the Kennel Club of Great Britain Breed Standard measurements. Examples of dog breeds are outlined as a guidance, but if we have not mentioned your breed type please understand that there are hundreds of dog breeds indeed, many variations on a typical dog. So if in doubt please do ask if you are not sure and we will do our best to help you, we would wish for you to select the best possible measurement and collar for your dog.
