How to Easily Measure for a Dog Collar

When sizing your pet for a Standard BALDY or GIZMO HUND collar, you might take something flexible such as a tape measure or a (ribbon, string etc) and place it around your dog's neck. It should not be too loose nor too tight and placed a few inches down from his head around #1 on picture below.

  • Allow sufficient room to slip two fingers between the collar and the dog's neck. Or you can measure his neck very snug and add two inches.


If you are in doubt whether you should chose one size or the other, we always recommend choosing the larger size.  So if you are debating whether you should choose a size 10" or 12", go with the 12".

If ordering a Martingale collar, ensure to also measure at point #2 in the image above to ensure the size you select fits within the range of these two measurements so the collar can fit over the dog's head.


Each HUND Collar has three holes to ensure the correct fit and will fit 3 different sizes as listed below:

You do not have to measure the same style collar as the one you are ordering. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that the collar will need to be slipped over your dog's head.
You can measure any style of collar, as long as it will slip on and off the dog's head. The most important thing to remember is to always measure the internal circumference of the collar.
