Please note ALL collars will go through regular wear and tear. Depending on your location of climate, and your dog's body chemistry there are many factors that will contribute to the normal wear and tear. All collars will need to be replaced at some point, there are no collars that can last a lifetime. Our warranty will cover anything within 30 days if it is a manufacturing defect but it will not cover any wear and tear you will have over time. Please note we offer different types of collars, our most durable collars will be water-resistant webbing with stainless steel hardware. This collection will be great for dogs that are active, and beach lovers but also will take longer to tear over time even with regular activities. Our other collars such as fabric/velvet will be more delicate for more of the indoor dogs that are not as active or you would like those to be fashion collars. Since cotton collars are made from cotton the material will have wear and tear easier. Please note the warranty does not cover tie-outs and excessive pulling from the dog. Collars breaking from tie outs, chewed buckles, or left on while crated is not covered. Please note this is also very dangerous. Be sure to remove the collars while not being supervised. 

Please add 2" to the actual collar size when ordering. For example: if your dog measures 12” add 2” to that measurement to 14” and you would pick a collar where that number lands in the middle. If you are unsure just reach out! We are happy to help!

Available Collar Width Sizes:


Collar Lengths

For regular collars. Please note Fi sizing is different, you can find this on the listing of the collar you are looking at. 

Medium 12"-16"
Large 17"-20"
Extra Large 18"-26"

Since all dogs are different- please be sure to measure and know the width that your dog wears. You can print out this PDF and cut them out and have it next to your dog's neck and determine which is the best width along with the size. Please double check and be certain when doing this since no returns are allowed. 

How To Measure Your Pet's Neck

You will need a soft measuring tape to measure your pet's neck. You can usually purchase one at the grocery store in the sewing isle, dollar store or Joanne's. Please allow 2 fingers to slip underneath the measuring tape.
