Please use a flexible measuring tape, so you get the exact measurement. Please give us the circumference of your dog's neck or head (in the case of drawstring collars) measured closely, without any extra (i.e. without finger or air between measuring tape and dog) in cm.
Please always measure your dog's neck circumference, not another collar! The dimensions of circumference and length differ and there are deviations.
For dogs with a lot of dewlap (e.g. pug or Labrador) please put the dewlap a little aside. You can also measure the inner circumference of a closed and well fitting collar.
For dogs with a lot of coat (e.g. Australian Shepherd): Let the coat lie well when measuring. You can also measure the inner circumference of a closed and well fitting collar.
For dogs whose head is as wide or thinner than their neck (e.g. greyhounds):
With a collar with adjustable clasp or carabiner it can happen that your dog slips out of the collar, here we recommend a product from our Wau-Stop collection.
If you have any questions, you can contact us at any time using the contact form.
Adjustable collar made of rope or biothane (Wau-Shine, Wau-Straight or Wau-Grip)
Please measure the size of your dog's neck (blue). The best way to measure is with a standing dog, where the collar should sit. We do not add a buffer from our side, please consider this when selecting the configurator "Lock Scissor Carabiner" or if your dog is at a size limit.
Train stop collar (Wau stop)
Please measure the head circumference (green and yellow) AND the neck circumference (blue) of your dog. This collar is pulled on and off over the head and is not suitable for dogs which do not like to be touched by the head.
