Just like a majority of the reviews on here, the sizing of these collars is way off. I would say the sizing is more accurate of the collar when completely pulled tight. Size down! I bought 3 of these and now I am not sure what to do with them. Hoping my 7 month old shepherd will grow into it. Otherwise the quality seems good and it is a solid collar.
I will be returning this collar. It is too big for my dog even though I measured her and also it has too big of a loop in the adjustment. I fear that if she is playing with other dogs, she or the other dog could be caught in the loop and choke. For a bigger dog might be okay. But the loop when I adjusted it makes me Leary.
I got these because my dogs pull on their leash and I thought the choke would help. These are listed as 13" to "20. However, it doesn't adjust much smaller than the 20" and the 13" is possibly the smallest it chokes to. The quality and concept of the collar is good, but the sizing is large. The tightest setting could easily slip off of my two large dogs. It's a bit big at the tightest setting, yet chokes very tight on the larger 70lb Lab German Sheppard mix. On the 60lb Lab Pit mix it is huge.
The collar itself seems to be quality. But it's huge! The size chart is not accurate at all this collar is a lot bigger. Unless you have q big dog order a size smaller than the chart. That's why 4 stars collar seems decent but description needs to be corrected
I purchased two of these for my dog whose beck measures 16 1/2 inches. The large sizing says it is for 13-20 inches. I’m not sure whose measuring tape they used, but it is absolutely wrong. According to my tape, the shortest is 19 1/2 inches and the longest was 25 1/4 inches. I am really tired of these sloppy descriptions when I have to mail order things, so I will definitely be returning these to get my money back. Chewy, please do better!
I ordered a size medium because my dog's neck is 12 inches around- the description said medium was for neck size between 11-15 inches. It's way too big; the collar (at it's smallest) measures 16 inches. Idk if the sizing is just off or maybe these are just not for Italian greyhounds.
My border collie's veterinarian recommended a Martingale collar for my 6 m.o. pup. This collar arrived today, and I have to agree with the comments about sizing. The dog's neck measures 13 inches so, I bought a medium collar. I had to adjust it as small as it would go, and it is still loose around the pup's neck. Maybe she'll grow into it.
I should have read the reviews before ordering. The large says it’s for a 13-20 neck. My puppy’s neck measured 14 inches, so I thought it would be great with room to grow. It is HUGE!! It was even way too big for my other dog who has a 17 inch neck!
I wanted to try a martingale collar for my dog that has some mild reactivity on walks, I feel much more in control of him and makes him less nervous. It doesn't choke him or hurt, he has pulled on it and hasn't made any noises of stress or discomfort. The snap buckle is easy to put on and off. Overall just what I needed. Good quality.
This is a fantastic collar, one of the best; however, the sizing is not accurate. My dog's neck is 15", but the smallest I can make the large is 16 1/2". So unless your dog's neck is at least 16 1/2" or larger order the medium.
