When ordering your first Pawsonify collar we highly recommend that you measure your pet's neck size prior to placing your order. Generally speaking our cat collars are one size fits most, but for dogs it can get very confusing with how many breeds there are.

PET TYPE SIZE NECK SIZE
Cat One Size Fits Most 8-12" (20-30.5 cm)
Dog Extra Small (XS) 8-12" (20-30.5 cm)
Dog Small (S) 10-15" (25.5-38 cm)
Dog Medium (M) 13-20" (33-51 cm)
Dog: Large (L) 16-26" (41-66 cm)

  To choose a collar size for your pet, either:

  • Measure your pet's existing collar length.
    • The best kind of collar allows you to fit two fingers between your dog's neck and collar.
    • Lay your pet's existing collar flat and measure it in inches.
    • If you don't have a measuring tape or ruler, try using a measuring app on your phone. If you have a printer you can also print out a ruler.
  • Loosely measure circumference of your pet's neck using a cloth measuring tape, in inches, around roughly where a collar would normally sit.
    • If you don't have a cloth measuring tape, you can use any kind of string or ribbon, then measure its length after marking where the buckle should be.
    • To make sure the collar isn't too tight you should add one to three inches to this measurement to find the correct collar size.
