Before ordering, please be sure to measure your dog’s neck for an accurate fitting. Don’t depend on the size you usually buy him over the counter. Here’s a look at two measurements to take. The first is needed for any collar ordered.

Slide/No Buckle
SLIDE/NO BUCKLE COLLARThe Slide/No Buckle collar is named because it slides over the dog’s head and is adjusted on his neck as there is no buckle. This is a sleek design, with less hardware bulk around the dog’s neck. It takes a little adjusting to put on and take off, but it is is a gorgeous style. A good collar for everyday wear and hanging tags.

SIDE RELEASE BUCKLE COLLARThe Side Release Buckle collar has a plastic, easy open buckle and comes in 1″ or 1.5″ widths. This is a good everyday collar to hang tags on.
