Dog collars are the most common treat for dogs. Most dog owners love giving their best friend a beautiful dog collar to delight their furry buddy.
Dog collars have to be very comfortable. The dog has to feel at ease with the collar around its neck at all times. Most pet owners do not give too much importance to the kind of collar and go for a common one that is believed to fit all dogs. But in most cases, this is not really true. Different breeds of dogs have different neck sizes. The collar has to fit the neck perfectly, with enough breathing space for the dog.

Dog collars are available in different sizes: small (10-14″”), small plus (14-16″”), medium (16-18″”), large (20-22″”) and extra large (22-24″”). Small collars are for smaller breeds of dogs, including Maltese, pomeranians, miniature pinschers, beagles, Jack Russells, shelties and papillons. While measuring the dog’s neck for the collar, place two fingers between the neck and the tape. Also ensure that the tape is kept loosely around the neck. The collar is likely to rest a few inches below the head, but it is better to add a couple of inches to the measurement. If the length is between two sizes, choose the bigger collar. Select a bigger collar if the dog is still growing.
