Why Lurchers need special lurcher collars
Apart from 'special collars for special dogs' argument, lurchers need wider dog collars resembling fishtail shape (widest in the middle getting narrower where it buckles together) because with them having such long slender necks a normal dog collar could easily damage their delicate necks when they pull.
As a result our lurcher collars are soft and padded, but most importantly are wide, so that collars do not put a lot of pressure on one small area of lurcher's fragile neck. In fact, any dog that has a neck prone to injury due to its size or shape, shouldn't be on an ordinary narrow flat collar.
Moreover, due to the shape of lurcher's head, you would find that a lot of them can slip out of a normal narrow collars.

How to measure your dog for a sighthound collar
Our collar sizes are given as neck measurements, not the total length of the collar. The neck size given is the distance from the buckle (A) to the first (B) and the last (C) hole.
For example, the size XXS collar is sized for necks between 18cm and 22cm
(7" - 8.5"). This means that the distance from the buckle to the first
hole A is 7" and to the last hole B is 8.5". As long as, your dog's neck is somewhere between 7" and 8.5", this is the size to go for.
If you already have a collar, the easiest method would be to measure your existing collar. Please measure from the buckle to the hole you are using.
Otherwise, you can measure your hound by using a soft tape measure, ribbon or anything that can be wrapped around your hound's neck from below the chin to behind the ears. This measurement will be the smallest size collar that will comfortably fit your dog, but, at the same time, is tight enough to ensure that your slender hound can not back out off the collar.
Add 10-20mm should you require a looser fit collar for your dog. If you want to be precise, measure neck circumference around the centre of your hound's neck and not under the chin and ears.
