Measuring Guide

The below Measuring Guides are to help you correctly measure your dog neck/head based on the type of collar you choose.

GUIDE 1: BUCKLE AND SIDE RELEASE BUCKLE COLLARS (PARACRORD/LEATHER)

  The below measuring guide is for Buckle and Side Release Buckle Collars. For a perfect fit you must ensure to correctly measure your dog’s neck with a cloth measuring tape. If you don’t have one, you can use a piece of string, which you can then lay out against ruler. Place the tape tightly and snugly around the dog’s neck without causing the dog to choke. There should be no extra room between the measuring tape and the neck so therefore the “two fingers under the measuring tape” rule does not apply. For thick-coated dogs, pull the tape through the coat and place as close to the skin as possible. For dogs with loose neck skin, pull the tape through the loose skin a little bit. If you measure outside of loose skin or thick hair, the collar will probably be too big. PLEASE NOTE:- Every leather buckle collar will have 5 holes in total and the measurement you give us will be placed on the middle hole. This will give you room for adjustment in case your dog loses weight or puts on weight in the future. Paracord Collars with a side release buckle are non-adjustable.   The correct example of how to measure your dog’s neck. The cloth measure should be in the centre of the neck! Not behind the ears or at the base but right in the centre. This is how you get the correct measurements. NOTE: Everybody (and their pet) occasionally likes a particular fit. Some prefer a looser style and others like a nice snug fit. If you would like a slightly looser fit please measure your dogs neck exactly where you would like the collar to sit. JustRight   The incorrect examples of measuring your dog’s neck. Please don’t put two fingers under the cloth measure the measurements will not be correct and it will make the collar too big. But also do not hold it so tight that your choking the dog. TooLooseandToTight

GUIDE 2: HALF-CHECK (MARTINGALE) COLLARS

  The below measuring guide is for Half-check (Martingale) collars. Half-check (Martingale) collars are fitted to the exact measurements of your dog’s neck. A properly fitted collar will be comfortably loose when not in use. When the half-check chain is pulled, the two rings (hardware on the chain loop of the half-check collar) should pull close together without choking your dog. That is why a correct measuring is so important for this type of collar.   You will need to take 3 different measurements. Again, keep the tape measure close to the skin for all measurements and do NOT follow the “two finger between tape and skin” rule. A picture guide is provided below to help you identify the correct locations for measuring. PICTURE A Place the cloth tape measure around the widest part of your dog’s head, this is typically from the top of the crown to down by the ears. This measurement is as important as the dog’s neck measurement because you will need to be able to get the collar on and off over your dogs ears. PICTURE B This measurement needs to be taken directly behind your dog’s ears. It is the smallest part of the dog’s neck. The correct measurements will prevent the collar from choking your dog but will stop your dog from slipping out of his collar. PICTURE C This measurement is to be taken near the base of your dog’s neck, where the collar will naturally sit, when not in use. Apollo Collars Measuring Guide

A properly fitted collar will be comfortably sitting near the base of your dogs neck. This type of collar is non adjustable and that is why a correct measuring is so important for this type of collar.   You will need to take 2 different measurements.
