DOG COLLAR SIZING & DOG COLLAR COLOR CHARTS

Getting the proper fit for a dog collar depends on your dog's size. A big, strong dog can easily break a collar or leash that is light weight, so they need a heavy collar and leash. Small dogs, on the other hand, don't need to carry around a heavy collar or leash. For your dog to be comfortable and safe, the collar must fit properly.  Here's a general guideline for measuring for a new dog collar:
Place two of your fingers between the dog's neck and the collar; there should be no more than the width of those two fingers between the neck and collar. If it fits looser than this,  the collar could slip over the dog's ears. Check your dog's neck occasionally to see if your dog has any redness or hair loss under the dog's collar.  Scroll down for an approximate Breed/Size chart When Measuring for harnesses, measure around the dog's chest at the point just behind the front legs.
