* Bring a current collar for sizing. If you don’t have one, bring your pet’s neck measurement:
Using a strip of paper in the same width you’ve chosen for your collar (1.25”, 0.75” OR 0.50”), wrap around your pet’s neck where you’d like the collar to lay. Do not pull tight and do not leave any slack… measure as you would yourself for a pair of pants. Mark or cut the paper to size.
* Wear comfy clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.
* When placing order, in comment section, please specify choice of collar width (1.25”, 0.75” OR 0.50”) AND hardware color (gold OR silver).
