An accurate measurement is critical for proper fit of your dog’s collar. Measuring is quick and simple using our instructions below.

The easiest and fastest way to measure your dog’s neck size is to use a cloth measuring tape.

1. Make sure to remove your dog’s collar before measuring!

2. For the perfect fit, measure the same area of the neck where your dog normally wears his or her collar.

3. Make sure you get a snug measurement. Avoid measuring any extra skin around the neck area.

If you don’t have a cloth measuring tape, substitute a piece of string in its place. Use the string to measure as outlined above, then lay it on a flat surface and measure the length with a ruler or tape measure.

It’s that easy! You just measured for the perfect custom-made Kobi Collar fit for your dog.
