Collar Size Advice Needed Please! (for a gift)

Postby bigskyguy » Wed May 05, 2010 8:00 am

Hey ...

I'm trying to buy a few handmade collars off of Etsy for a friend's dog as a gift ... she's a 40-45lb pittie/boxer mix, more on the tall/slender side for her size. Anyone possibly have a similar dog that may be able to shed some light on an appropriate collar size (in inches) for her?

Thanks much!

16" neck or slightly under unless she's beefy (sorry Amie, I almost always win the money I put down for this game lol )

My male is around 40 lbs -- more lean than beefy. He's usually around a 16" neck.

I gamble with customers all the time... it's how I keep sane :tongue:

(and i won't even mention the insane scientific studies and spreadsheets re: neck size I used to keep when I started making collars)

Ella is 52 lbs. and has a 16" neck exactly.
I always say she is more lean than beefy, but other people say she looks stocky.

get adjustable collars, I'd say ones that fit atleast 16" - 18" is good.

Is she a but on the stocky side?

I think Stella has a rather long, slender neck for a bully breed mix lol
