how to wear and measure for a martingale collar

Measurements should take place around the widest part of the head, where the collar slides over when you’re putting on the collar & around the neck, where the martingale will be worn.

Pick the size that fits both of these measurements to ensure the correct fit.

martingale collars do not have a buckle, to put on the collar it slides over your dog's head.

A helpful rule of thumb is to have 2 finger widths between the slides on the small loop when there is tension in the collar to ensure appropriate fit
