Dog Collar Sizes

Measuring for a Boots & Arrow collar

Boots & Arrow collar measurements indicate the size of your dog’s neck. The lengths listed below correspond to the length around your dog’s neck – not the length of the entire collar.

Want to know which collar size is best for your pooch? Measure your dog’s neck at the broadest part and keep in mind that a well fitting collar should allow space for two fingers to fit between your pooch’s neck and the tape measure.

If you’re unsure of which size to order for your dog, we recommend measuring their neck size and adding one inch. Allow for a collar that gives you one if not two extra holes past their neck measurement.

Please Note: While our collars are made for pups of all sizes, we’re especially proud of our Large and Extra Large dog collars which should satisfy the needs of larger dog lovers everywhere. And don’t worry – you can always contact us with any ordering or sizing questions.
