Size Guide

Choosing the right size collar
All our collars and leads at Barker and Ball are sized individually according to length and width. If you have a small dog the lead generally needs to be longer (your hand is further away from your dog's collar) and a short, wide lead is more appropriate for a large dog.
Each collar is given as a size range from the smallest to the largest possible adjustments.
To determine the correct collar size for your dog, measure around your dog's neck. You should be able to fit two fingers, flat, between the tape-measure and the neck. Remember that you are after a comfortable fit, not so loose that it may catch or so that it'll be restrictive.
If you are in any doubt, Barker and Ball recommend that you give us a call and let us help you select the correct collar and lead for your dog.

Gifts for other dogs
Buying gifts for other people's dogs can be difficult. If you are worried about sizing, give us a call or email us at and let us help. If possible, find out the breed whether the dog is particularly small or large for that breed.
