And when you get caught out in a drizzle or some snowfall, it will be perfectly comfortable. Bonus: you get to have fun showing off your knitting skills, favorite colors, and sense of style.

With Ringer, you might find yourself taking more leisurely walks and lingering longer at the park too. Extended neighborhood jaunts? Admiration from passersby? Absolutely.
For best fit, choose a size with finished circumference that is 0-2” larger than the middle of your dog’s neck. See 5 sizes listed above. Neck edge with eyelet detail is about 3” smaller around, making for a closer fit near the face.
It’s also shaped with short rows, that make the collar narrower under the chin and wider over the back of the neck.
