You NEED a tape measurer. Then add 2 inched to the measurement & buy that size. If you don’t want to spend the buck or two on the tape measurer the you shouldn’t have the dogs.
measure around your dog’s neck and put two fingers under the measuring tape. That will give you the correct size.
even with in the same breed neck size varies greatly so you will have to measure the dogs neck. The width of your pinky finger is Roughly a cm. Use a pice of string to measure around the dogs neck the count how many pinky widths the string is. This will give you a very rough idea of size.
You know what I do when i can’t find a tape? I use a piece of regular letter size paper. I fold it in half, and then again. For someitn like a collar, cut a strip lengthwize. Wrap the strip around the dog’s neck. The folds will give you the fractions.
I can figure pretty close with just a sheet of paper.
Just go to PETCO. You will find real people there to help you and you cn even take your dog’s there to be fitted !!!
