To ensure a perfect fit,
please measure your dog's neck before you order.
For further questions see
Each Orion Leather collar is custom made to your size
specifications. You will be asked to provide your dog's neck size at checkout.
We make our buckled collars with 5 holes, so you are always assured a 4”
adjustability range on any collar, still it is important to measure your dog
carefully for his comfort and your peace of mind. You will not want the collar
so loose that is slips over the dog's head or so tight that he can't breathe
properly. PLEASE NOTE, we size our collars by NECK SIZE, not overall collar
length. Properly measuring for your dog is important, please take the time to
read through our measuring instructions, thanks!
Measuring Your Dog's Neck:
You will want to measure your dog with a cloth measuring tape or
you can use something flexible (ribbon, string etc), and measure it out with a
tape measure or ruler when you are done. Do not pull too tightly, or leave a lot
of gap/slack. Most people find that they like to adjust their dog's collar per
the activity - around the house they have the collar looser, when walking or
swimming they tighten it up, this is why we give you a significant adjustment
range. A rule of thumb is to leave an allowance for two fingers to fit between
the collar and the dog for a comfortable fit.
Do NOT measure extra skin, try to get the tape measure up under the
flaps, but do not pull too tightly. Measure your dog's neck in the center of the
neck, as shown in the picture, not too close to the head (collar will be too
small) or too close to the shoulders (collar will be too big).
There is no need to add inches to the actual measurement of your
dog's neck - the size of the dog's neck is the collar size needed.
Measuring from an existing collar:
Laying the collar out flat, be sure to measure from where the body
of the collar begins to the hole where your dog wears the collar, do not measure
the excess buckle or material after the proper hole. If you are measuring a
collar with a clip or quick release buckle, be sure not to include the part of
the buckle that goes into the other buckle end in your measurement.
