Sizing your Novaguard
A Snug Fit!
When fitting your new NOVAGUARD, make sure the neck collar is fastened firmly, otherwise your dog is less likely to accept the collar. Depending on the temperament of your dog, you may loosen the collar slightly after the OPTIVISOR has been accepted by your special friend.
Head measurement instruction
STEP 1 – LOCATE THE MID POINT
Run an imaginary line across from behind one ear all away up and across the dogs head to the back of the other ear you will find the mid-point located in the centre of this line. This mid-point is used to establish the head measurement.
STEP 2 – ESTABLISH THE HEAD MEASUREMENT
Measure from the mid-point to the tip of the dogs nose – DO NOT follow the contours of the dogs face. – Measure in a STRAIGHT LINE ONLY (you may need to lift a straight ruler away from the dogs head see below diagrams) The resulting measurement represents the head measurement, you will use to size your NOVAGUARD using the table provided.
STEP 3: FINAL SIZING
Using the tables provided size the NOVAGUARD by head measurement and by canine weight. You may find you have 2 different sizes according to the 2 charts. This is because, as we know, dogs come in all shapes and sizes. Simply pick the smaller size. It is always better to size down when in doubt.
