What Dog Collar Size?

boxer dog wearing a large size green leather dog collarWith numerous types and breeds of dog and often significant variation in neck size within breeds according to age and gender, please take our dog breed neck size guide below as a rough one. We strongly advise you to measure your dog’s neck before ordering a Hindquarters dog collar.

How to measure your dog's neck? It is best to measure around the base of your dog’s neck, allowing room for a couple of fingers to ensure a comfy fit. Or you can measure your dog's existing collar when flat, between the points where it fastens together.

Hindquarters dog collars are available in a number of sizes from XS to Large. The exact measurements for each of our handmade dog collars are stated on each dog collar product page. But broadly speaking, our Extra Small dog collars fit necks between 25cm to 33cm, Small dog collars fit 33cm to 41cm, Medium 40cm to 48cm, and large dog collars are 47cm to 55cm.
