To find the right size there are two important measurements, the size of the head and the neck.
Head measurement: You want to make sure there is enough space for your dog's head to slip through the collar. Measure the widest part of your dog's head. If your dog's head is larger than its neck, you will use the head measurement to determine the size you need.
Neck measurement: Measure around the middle of your dog's neck. If your dog's neck is larger than his/her head, you will use the neck measurement to determine the size you need.
Lastly, add 2.5cm (1") for smaller dogs, and 5cm (2") for larger dogs to the above measurements (head or neck). For example, if your dog's largest measurement is 20cm, you will add 2.5cm-5cm to that and choose the best size according to the chart below. When in doubt, size up.
|Small||18cm - 30cm (7"-12")||2.5cm (1") or 3cm (1.18")|
|Medium||30cm - 45cm (12"-18")||2.5cm (1"), 3cm (1.18"), or 5cm (2")|
|Large||40cm - 55cm (16"-21.5")||2.5cm (1"), 3cm (1.18"), or 5cm (2")|
The 2.5cm and 5cm collar widths are made with a 100% hemp base, and the 3cm collar width a double woven cotton and hemp base. The 100% hemp base is slightly darker in colour.
Need a different size? Send us an email or leave a note in cart and we will customize the collar to fit at no extra charge. A well-fitted martingale should tighten just to the size of the dog's neck without choking.
Please note, martingale collars are meant to be worn during walks only and removed once you’re back at home. The small loop increase the risk to get caught on objects and can create a choking hazard. To prevent injury, always keep an eye on your dog while they’re wearing a martingale collar.
Linen is one of the oldest fibres in the world and also one of the most sustainable. It's very strong and absorbent, dries quicker than cotton, is hypoallergenic as well as naturally insect repellent.
The flax plant, from which linen fibres are harvested, only takes 100 days to grow to maturity. It requires fewer pesticides, herbicides and fungicides than cotton, it improves the soil it grows in, and there is very little waste due to the whole plant being used. This makes linen a great choice for the eco conscious pet parent.
