The Hot Dog on a LEASH collars, leashes and harnesses are made with colorful, high fashion cotton fabrics, sewn over a strong polypropylene webbing material. The hardware includes double-locking side release acetyl buckles, wide mouth adjusters, forged (not welded) D-Rings and heavy weight snap hooks for leashes. All A Hot Dog on a LEASH products, even A Hot Dog on a LEASH bows, flowers, and doggie neckties are washable; however, it is recommended hanging up the wet items to dry so they do not bang around in a dryer.
These collars are adjustable. The measurements shown with the collar sizes are the collar measurements, not neck measurements. For the best fit, you should measure an old, well-fitting collar or measure your pet’s neck and add 1/2? to 2? (depending on the size of your pet, if they have a smooth or long coat, how loose you’d like the collar to be, etc.).
Your pet may fit into more than one of our sizes. For instance, if your dog needs an 18? collar, this would be close to the top end of a size Medium and the small end of a size Large. If this occurs, you may want to choose based on the width of the collar. If you have a medium-sized dog, you may want the smaller width (3/4?) of the Medium collar. If you have a large or extra-strong dog, you should probably choose the 1-inch-wide size L collar.
