Josh Lewis

Ever wondered what your pups neck size is and how it compares to other pooches?

There are many reasons why you might want to know your dog's Neck & Weight, for example, something innocuous like guaranteeing you're getting the correct size bow tie for your cute little pup so she can strut her stuff; or on a more serious tone, to make sure that your pup is healthy relative to their breed and other dogs of their class.

The more you know about your loveable family member and the more conscious you are of their idiosyncrasies, the more you can help them be healthy and happy and tailor a life just for them!

Lucky for you, we've compiled a table of all the most common breeds and their averages neck sizes, alongside their average weight.
