How to measure for your BELT
Following the guideline below will hopefully make belt buying pain free!
Although it seems like your belt size should be the same as your jean size, this is not the case, it is usually two inches larger than waist or hip size. For example, trouser/jean size of 32" will need a 34" belt.
Belts are sized to the middle hole.
These belts are measured in inches. Between each belt hole is one inch.
Please see diagram below:
A. End of belt (not including buckle).
B. The hole that you currently use.
An easy way to obtain the correct measurement is to look at a collar that fits your dog if you have one at home. Lay it on a flat surface and measure from the buckle (not including the buckle) to the hole that your dog usually wears it on. Sarah will make holes either side of that for adjustment.
If you don't have a current fitting collar you will need to measure your dog's neck. Please use a soft tape measure, if you don't have one of these it is best to use string then measure the string length. Measure the middle of the neck where the collar would sit and place two fingers between the tape and the neck (not slack). This is the size of collar you will need.
Do mention if your dog is still young and growing then Sarah can allow for growth.
Also in consideration you will need to choose the thickness of collar you would like ranging in four widths from 1/2" - 1". Depending on the breed/size of your dog.
