Hi, I’m happy you are even attempting this list. It is SO helpful! I am looking for Miniature Pinscher. I’ll be picking up an 8 week old and want to have a collar for immediate training.
Kimberly Alt
For an 8-10 pound miniature pinscher a collar 8 to 11 inches will work. However, for an 8 week old that will most likely be too large. I couldn’t find information for a puppy. Perhaps ask the person you are getting the dog from? Sorry I can’t be more help.
Tom
I don’t see bullmastiff on the list? Thanks
Kimberly Alt
One of our readers commented saying their adult Bullmastiffs typically need a 26-28 inch collar. We will add this to our article!
