You'll need the smallest possible collar you can find for the time being. I'd also check with the breeder as they might provide you with the first collar. I wouldn't invest in anything expensive or something you really expect him to grow into. I can tell you that on black Friday you can find some pretty good collar deals...50% off in certain stores and you'll be able to get some nice leather or nylon collars for the future.
The collar we got from the breeder we replaced in a few months as we just wanted something that we liked more. Within a year he couldn't fit into his original collar anyways. It's cute taking it out and realizing how small he once was.
Good to know, thank you. I'll save buying a martingale for when he outgrows the first one.
I had totally forgotten about black friday coming up! That will be perfect to stock up on toys and all the other things we wont be getting right off the bat.
I can't wait to get him home and start documenting what a sweet little puppy he is. I love the idea of taking pictures every week the first year. Saving his first collar could make for a fun shadow box piece.
This was Franklin's first collar. I like the soy collars because they are cottony soft and strong. Plus they are in pretty bright but earthy colors. http://www.amazon.com/New-Earth-Collar-8-12In-Eggplant/dp/B008BRQ9LS/ref=pd_sim_sbs_petsupplies_3
He grew out of this size in just a few weeks I think? I don't know I don't remember, but the collar is inexpensive and worth it. I actually used the New Earth Soy Harness when we were out walking. I literally had a nightmare that he slipped out of his collar, so it was the harness after that. I used the harness until he was 4 months old and went to a rolled leather collar. I only use a special harness for his search work now.
