what size collar for female puppy?

Found a nice dog coat? Found a cozy pub that's Schnauzer friendly or even a Schnauzer friendly B&B. Feel free to share it here. Basically anything that we would want to buy for our Schnauzer goes here.

Hi Jess, as a first collar for a puppy it can be best to buy one without eyelets initially that can be adjusted to fit until you are confident of the size or your puppy is big enough for an adult collar. This is an example:

Are you visiting your puppy beforehand? You should really be arranging to meet mother and pups at the breeder's before collecting your puppy or, if you are absolutely certain about the integrity of the breeder and not able to visit (taking into account restrictions on travel), you could check with the breeder as to size for your particular puppy. Pups do vary somewhat in size and do grow fast though so an adjustable type as linked to above may still be your best option.

Hi, thank you for replying and your help.
yes, don't worry I have seen the puppies and mother, fortunately for me its my older brother and his wife who are the breeders (they have been KC Assured breeders for 6 years now).
I probably could off asked them but I've been asking so many questions I think im being annoying :)) so thought id just do some research myself, but I am actually going to be looking after the mother and her pups for a day as my brother starts back at work with his business and will be back really late and his wife is also working long shifts over that weekend as overtime, so I can check my pups neck size whilst im there. :)
