Collars Measurement Guide:
When sizing your pet for a TIMELY collar, use a tape measure to find the circumference of your pet's neck.
If your pet's collar measurement is between two available sizes, it's best to order the larger size. That way you will have room for pet growth or an increase in coat thickness.
When fitting the collar on your pet, it should rest high on your pet's neck, but not too loose. Adjust the collar's fit so that you can easily place two fingers under the collar. This allows you to grab the collar easily should you need to.
We measure our collars as seen on the picture below. So if your dog's neck measures 28cm add another cm and this is the collar size that you should order.
All collars are measured from the buckle to the second outer hole as illustrated below.
Martingale Collar Measurement Guide:
Place your dogs collar on a flat surface (if it is a buckle collar, put the buckle into the hole that fits the best for this measurement). Use a flexible tape measure and measure the inside circumference of the collar. Keep the tape measure snug against the collar when measuring. Make sure to measure the ENTIRE circle of the collar, including any hardware. DO NOT pick up the collar when measuring.
You do not have to measure the same style collar as the one you are ordering. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that the collar will need to be slipped over your dog's head.
You can measure any style of collar, as long as it will slip on and off the dog's head. The most important thing to remember is to always measure the internal circumference of the collar.
