Breeds given as a guide only. Because these collars slide on over the head, please measure your dog’s neck and head (including ears) before purchasing a collar. The sizes refers to the adjustment range of the collar, not the actual size of the collar. In order to reliably achieve this adjustment range, the actual size range is bigger than the stated size.
Unsure what a martingale collar is?
A martingale collar is a design that helps prevent a dog from slipping, or backing, out of their collar. They are often referred to as a greyhound, or sighthound collar because they are best suited to breeds with a smaller head than their neck. When adjusted properly, a martingale collar contracts snugly to prevent escape when needed. If you are unsure whether our martingale collars are correct for your hound, please read our blog post here which explains in a little more detail what it is and how to use one.
How to measure for correct size:
Either use an existing buckle collar or form a loop from string or tape. Adjust it to find the size that slides comfortably over your hound’s head. Once on, check that it will slide off without hurting your hound’s ears. Now measure your hound’s neck at a mid point on the neck, or where you wish the collar to sit when in use. When you have these two measurements, compare them to the sizes in our size chart. The correct size is the one which covers both these measurements.
