Each Madison & Maude collar is custom made to your size specification. When purchasing a collar it is important to know your dogs necksize, before ordering a collar. If you are unsure about how to measure your pet’s neck size accurately, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We want your pet to have the perfect fitting collar. 

Step 1: Grab a cloth measuring tape, if you don’t have a cloth measuring tape, 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. Notate the number on the measuring tape and round up to the nearest inch.

If using string, lay the string flat against a regular tape measure to get the exact size of your pet’s neck and round up to the nearest inch.

Step 4: This is the measurement size we will use to design your custom collar. Enter the exact measurement in the website field when purchasing your collar. Remember, we size our collars by necksize, not the overall length of the collar.

Remember – your pet’s collar will be made from the measurements you provide to us.

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 measurements, please don’t hesitate to contact us so that we can assist you. Remember – we build your pet's collar from the measurements you provide to us.

Measuring Your Pet's Neck-size From Their Exisitng Collar: 

Step 1: Lay your existing collar out flat. 

Step 2; Measure from where the leather or material wraps to the buckle hole, to the third hole. If you are measuring a clip collar, be sure not to include the part of the buckle that clasps into the other buckle end in your measurement. 

Our collars are custom made, therefore they are non-returnable due to the extensive amount of time and material costs associated with making your special collar or leash. 


*Collars ordered with incorrect sizing cannot be refunded or exchanged.
