Does your dog need a new collar or harness? In the following tables, we have pulled together basic information regarding a small selection of different dog breeds for you. To be completely certain about sizing, you should always measure your dog (neck, belly circumference, back length, etc.).
Once, your dog is correctly measured, the selection of the right harness or collar from Hunter is reliable and easy to use throughout the dog's life. All, Hunter harnesses and dog collars are standardised, to make the shopping experience more pleasant for you and your four-legged friend.
- If your dog is a puppy or still growing, make sure you pick a collar that has at least another two holes.
- Is your dog in-between sizes? We recommend purchasing the size up, to ensure a perfect fit.
Before placing an order, please follow the Hunter size guide to make it easier to choose the right product for your pet. All measurements are shown in cm.
The easiest method for measuring the circumference of the neck of your dog (A) is by using a flexible measuring tape. Place the measuring tape midway down the dog's neck. The tape should be fairly tight around the neck without actually restricting the dog. The specifications for adjusting Hunter collars is that they always slightly overlap. This ensures that you are forced to use the first or last hole to find the optimal fitting.
Should the circumference of the neck of your dog be at the upper end of the measurements specified, then you can alternatively choose the next larger size. This is especially recommended for dogs that are still growing. Our collar sizes (e.g. Size 30) relate to the total length of the material used without taking the buckle and fastener into consideration. It should be noted that when considering the range of adjustments the first value relates to the smallest and the second value to the largest adjustment possible.
As a rule: every collar and neckband should be tried on before purchasing in order to ensure that the fit pleases both animal and owner.
The easiest method of measuring the chest circumference (B) of your dog is by using a flexible measuring tape placed directly behind the front legs at the broadest part of the chest. The tape should be fairly tight without restricting the dog. The correct harness size is determined by taking into account both the circumference of the chest and the neck (A). All harnesses from our range are adjustable using the chest strap (e.g. the RANGER PROFESSIONAL harness), most of them however are multi-adjustable (e.g. the SOFTIE harness) and can be optimally adjusted to any body shape to ensure more comfort. All harnesses from the HUNTER range feature easy handling, an elaborate finish, and soft padding.
As a rule: every harness should be tried on before purchasing in order to ensure that the fit pleases both animal and owner.
Hunter has a wide range of dog harnesses that suit the most diverse dog body shape and material preferences while meeting individual requirements and needs. Further information on dog harnesses below:
