HOW TO MEASURE FOR THE PERFECT COLLAR FIT
All Madison & Maude Collars are custom made to your pet’s neck-size specifications that you provide to us. In order to make your collar fit properly we need to know your pets exact neck size when you place an order.
Below are instructions on how to properly measure your pet’s neck-size. If you are unsure about how to measure accurately, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We want your pet to have the perfect fitting collar.
Step 1: Its best to use a cloth measuring tape, if you don’t have a cloth measuring tape, you can use a piece of string.
Step 2: Wrap the cloth measuring tape or string around the center of your pet’s neck, exactly where you want the collar to sit. Fit it snugly, but not too tight.
Step 3: Place two fingers in between the measuring tape or string and your pet’s neck.
If using string, lay the string flat against your tape measure to get the exact size of your pet’s neck.
Step 4: This is the measurement size you will use to order your custom collar. Enter the measurement in the website field “pet’s neck-size” when ordering your collar. You are now able to select the proper collar size from the drop down box based on your measurement.
The length of your collar refers to the actual measurement of your pets’ neck size, and is based on the inner circumference of the collar when the buckle is latched at the center hole. Adjustability holes are built into each collar so that your pet has room to grow.
If you’re uncertain of your pet’s measurements, please don’t hesitate to contact us so that we can assist you.
Measurements from your pet's traditional collar:
If your pet is wearing a collar that fits well and you prefer to send us the measurements of your pet’s collar that’s fine too.
When measuring your pet’s collar, it’s important not to include the buckle in your measurement (see graphic below). Measure your pet’s collar starting from where the fabric fold wraps around the buckle to the hole on the collar where your pet wears it (fig. 1). Enter that measurement size into the website field “pet’s necksize” when ordering your collar. You are now able to select a proper collar size based on your measurement.
Measurements from your pet's quick release collar:
If you’re measuring a collar with a quick release buckle, do not include in your measurement the part of the buckle that fits inside the other buckle end (fig. 2).
Remember – we make your pet's collar from the measurements that you provide to us.
