Collars: The Two Finger Trick

Updated: Feb 10

Did you know? Proper dog collar adjustment is extremely important for your dog’s safety! A loose collar can: slip off, snag, or tangle up another dog’s leg, leading to serious injuries. We have seen this happen and it is 100% preventable.

Once you have the collar, you can put it on your dog and perform the "Two-Finger" test. Secure the collar around your dog's neck so that it has enough room to move around. It should not, by any means, be pressing into your dog's skin.

Then, slide two fingers behind the collar and against your pup's neck. If the collar feels snug, it's just right. You shouldn't have to force your fingers underneath the collar. If it's difficult to perform this test, the collar is too tight.

Test to see if the collar can make it past your dog’s ears. If it can, adjust to prevent your four legged baby from slipping out of it!
