If you are considering purchasing a Long Paws Collar, please find our useful size guide below.
Measuring for your dog for a collar:
- Ensure your dog is standing still
- Measure using a fabric tape measure or string
- Measure the neck line at the base of the neck
- You should then be able to fit 1 to 2 fingers inside the collar, for your dog to be comfortable
|To Fit Dog’s Neck Size||Collar Width||Collar Strength|
|XS||23-32cm / 9-11.5in||1.5 cm / 0.6 in||70kg|
|S||28-42cm / 11-16in||1.5 cm / 0.6 in||119kg|
|M||34-52cm / 14-19in||2.0 cm / 0.8 in||224kg|

Note: If your dog’s neck size overlaps two sizes, then unless you expect your dog to continue growing, the smaller of the two sizes is the better choice for your dog.
