All dogs are unique in size but to make your shopping experience easier, here is our quick reference chart on neck widths based on average breed sizes. Most breeds vary in their respective ranges depending on whether they are male or female, and if they are under or overweight for their breed.
Ultimately, only you will know which size will be most comfortable for your dog from the measurements you take from using a soft measure tape. It is strongly recommended that you use a soft tape measure to accurately size your dog. Please note that sizes referenced below for small to extra extra large will vary depending on the particular collar you choose. Please read the dog collar product details to ensure that you purchase the right size for your dog.
Collar Measurement: Measure around the thickest part of your dog’s neck as shown in Figure A, which is near the shoulder. Add another inch or two to the measurement to ensure a comfortable fit. If your dog is just a puppy, please go up to the next size since they will grow out of it pretty quickly.
