THE MISCONCEPTION OF A "STANDARD NECK SIZE"
To many stores try to make it "easy" by simply "categorizing" your dog into a certain standard neck size according to the breed. But regardless of the breed, every dog is different and your dog requires the correct collar size to be comfortable and safe.
This is true especially with higher quality leather collars that are crafted in a more artisan way such as you find at Tedesco Hound.
STEP 1 - KNOW YOUR DOG'S CORRECT NECK SIZE
The best way to measure your dog's neck size is by measuring the circumference of the neck using a flexible tape measure. Allow for 2 fingers to fit in-between the collar and your dog's neck to ensure a comfortable fit. If you don't have a tape measure use a string and then measure the string with a flat ruler.
STEP 2 - BROWSE BY NECK SIZE ACCORDING TO YOUR MEASUREMENTS
You can browse our store by many factors such as size, material, width, decoration and more but the best way to start is by browsing by the neck size according to your measurements.
For example: If your dog's neck size measures 12.5 inches you can browse within the neck size that this measurement fits into. However, you might find that not all collars in this particular category will fit your dog's neck size since there are many different designs and not every collar is crafted in every size.
