Measuring your dog for a sighthound collar
It is essential that you correctly measure your hound's neck or existing collar for a prefect, comfortable and safe fit.
Our collars' 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, XXS collar is sized for necks between 18 cm and 22 cm (7" - 8.5"). This means that the distance from the buckle to the first hole is 7" and to the last hole is 8.5".
You can measure your hound by using a soft tape measure or ribbon and wrapping it 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.
If measuring the existing collar please measure from the buckle to the hole you are using. Please do not measure the total length of your existing collar as these will give you a wrong measurement for your Dog Moda collar.
Should your require a looser fit collar for your dog, you can measure neck circumference around the centre of your hound's neck and not under the chin and ears.
Please note that our collar sizes are deliberately designed to overlap allowing you to choose the width that you feel is most appropriate for your dog. Moreover, you can always ask for an extra hole to be made, if your dogs falls right between sizes.

Measuring your dog for a martingale (half check) collar
Carefully measure your dog's neck using a soft tape measure or piece of string where you want the collar to be worn (either just below the chin or lower down around the neck). This will give you A to B measurement, which is the leather part of martingale collar without the chain.
Our martingale collar sizes are given as distance between the two chain rings
without the chain (measurement of leather collar between A and B). Therefore, you need to ensure that tape measure is snug and sits tightly around your hound's neck with no space to spare. Bear in mind that collar chain gives sufficient extra length for control, comfort and ease of putting the collar on.
Choose collar size which is closest to your desired length:
Large: 40 cm (16")
Medium I: 35 cm (14")
Medium II: 33 cm (13")
Small: 30 cm (12")
X-Small: 25 cm (10")
XX-Small: 20 cm (8")
