Size and Measurement of the ChokeFree Shoulder Collar is easy.
Wrap a measuring tape around the pet just behind the front
legs. Take the exact measurement around the chest just behind the front legs and add an inch. The exact measurement
plus one inch should be the size of the ChokeFree that is needed. It should be noted that ChokeFree is made out of leather
and due to the natural characteristics of the leather, ChokeFree will soften and become more flexible and conform
to the pet's shape. It is important for ChokeFree not to be too large once it has been worn and softened. The
Shoulder Collar should be fitted such that the pet does not have enough room to pull out of the collar. ChokeFree sizes
match the circumference of the pet's chest behind the front legs. Measurements taken behind the pet's front legs
should allow for a comfortable fit and not be tight. A good rule of thumb is to measure the pet's chest circumference
exact and add one inch to allow for comfort.

Pets that are restrained with the shoulder collar do not gag or cough while
being controlled with a leash.

the owner to have full control of the pet, but the shoulder collar does not make contact with the neck area that causes
the pet to gag and choke when pulling against a control leash.
