Average Collar Size by Dog Breed

by | Nov 6, 2022

 

A common question we get is “How do I know which size of collar my dog needs?” or AVERAGE COLLAR SIZE BY DOG BREED. The most ideal way to really find out is to check your dog’s neck measurement, but sometimes that is not possible. So we have created a chart that shows the average neck size by breed, as well as the collar size recommended based on our sizing. Please note that this is a guide, and the most accurate way to find out the appropriate collar is measuring your dog’s neck.

Here’s the link to our blog about : HOW TO MEASURE COLLARS

If your dog’s breed cannot be found in the chart below, please contact us so we may assist you in choosing the appropriate collar for your dog.
