Bulldog with a tape measure around its neck for Style Hound Australia sizing


Style Hounds offers a wide range of collar styles and sizes for all dogs, big and small. To help you choose the right size for your dog we have included a size guide in the product description for each of our collars. Please use these individual size guides when selecting your size as there may be slight variations in sizing between the different styles. The guide shows the minimum and maximum neck measurement for each size.  Please note that the width of the collar may vary between the different sizes.

Please use the instructions below to measure your dog’s neck and then use this exact measurement when selecting from the size guide. To make things simple we have already included some wriggle room in our sizing so that your dog collar will fit firmly but still have some room to move. There’s no need to add in any extras in your measurement. Please do not measure the length of your dog’s existing collar as this will not be an accurate measurement for our size guide.

How to Measure your dog
There are 2 easy ways to measure your dog’s exact neck size.
  1. Take a flexible tape measure (centimetres) and measure a complete circle around your dog’s neck where the collar would naturally rest. Don’t pull it tightly and there’s no need to add in any extra. Use this exact measurement to look up which size will best fit your dog.

  2. Take a piece of string and measure a complete circle around your dog’s neck where the collar would naturally rest. Don’t pull it tightly and there’s no need to add in any extra. Take the string and measure the length by laying it flat against a ruler (centimetres). Use this exact measurement to look up which size will best fit your dog.
We have included a table below showing indicative neck sizes for some common breeds. This information is a general guideline only as each individual dog has different measurements. Please use your dog’s exact measurements when choosing the size for purchase.


    Many of our leads are available in either a Standard or Slim size. There are no hard and fast rules for selecting a lead size but generally the Slim size is more suited to a smaller collar (40cm or less) while the Standard size is more suited to the regular or larger collars (45cm and above).
