Measuring your Dog's Collar

Posted by Simon Harrison on Saturday, August 15, 2015 Under: News

How do you measure your Dog’s existing collar to get the right sized Handmade Collar from Oakside Saddlery?

First take your a look at your current collar on your dog. Does it fit OK? If not now is the time to make so changes. Make a note of which hole the collar is buckled to and then remove the collar from the dog.

Lay the collar out flat and measure from the inside edge of the buckle to the hole that it was buckled to.

You can see the mark on the collar where it was buckled to on this picture.

Take the measurement from the buckle end.

In this case it would be 33.5 cm or 13 1/4 inches.

Then visit my website, pick your handmade leather dog collar and place your order. When it comes to the length order the nearest measurement (usually rounding down). So in this case I would order 13 inches.

Once your new collar turns up it should buckle up on the middle hole for a perfect fit.

As you can see having your collar measured is very tiring!
