All of our collars, unless otherwise noted on the collar's page, are measured to the center hole for a TRUE neck size. What does that mean to you? Well, simply put, it means that the measurement of your dog’s neck is the size of the collar it needs. No guesswork needed to buy a collar that fits your dog correctly and comfortably.
You don't buy pants for yourself that are a certain measurement and add or subtract several inches to get your true pants measurement, right? Why should you do that for your dog?
