Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So I've searched the house over, and can find NO measuring tape. :/

I love these collars:

My puppies are 10 weeks old. Would a small qualify? At $.7.95 I find them pretty reasonably priced, so I don't mind having to buy bigger ones eventually. Small is defined on the website as 10-13 inch collar.

Anyone else have a puppy they can measure? LOL

TIA!!!

Do you have a piece of string you can use to find the size of your puppies' necks and then use a standard ruler or measuring stick to get the exact measurement based on the string? That's what I did when I needed to measure my dogs without measuring tape at my disposal.

String, yarn, ribbon....and if you don't have a ruler or yard stick, then use a piece of standard size paper that you know is 8.5x11...that'll give you an idea of how big her neck is.

Thank you forum friends!

I figured out the puppies' necks are currently 10 inches already, so I'm going to get the medium ones for now. Have a feeling maybe someday they will need the large. The collars are too cool. For Florida especially...water proof, and they clean up nice.
