Mrs. Bones Collar Sizing

Standard Side-Release Collars
From years of experience, Mrs. Bones believes that the most important factor in selecting a new collar for you dog is the WIDTH.

Frequently Mrs. Bones receives telephone calls that go like this: "Hi. I absolutely LOVE that 2-inch Dragon Fire trim, and I HAVE to have it for my dog… He is a Cocker Spaniel." Of course such a wide trim would make a poor Cocker look like he was stuffed into a turtleneck sweater, and he would be incredibly uncomfortable; he would then paw at the collar, scratch it, and try to get his message across in whatever possible way.

This is why it is very important to select a trim that is the proper width for the size and neck length of the dog. Small dog — narrow collar, medium size dog — medium width collar, and so on.

To determine the size (length) of the Mrs. Bones collar most appropriate for your dog, measure loosely around your dog's neck where you want the collar to rest. If the measurement is right on the edge of a size (14-3/4 inches, for example) you should get the next size up, especially if the dog is young, or specify exact measurement for a custom fit. All of Mrs. Bones' collars are adjustable.
