I'm getting my Chihuahua puppy this weekend and wondered what size collar I would need to get for her. Its just for her identity tag and not for using with a lead. I would be grateful for any advise

You need to measure her neck in order to find the right size. Many young Chis require kitten. Pillars because most dog collars are too small for their little necks.

When Kahlua was a puppy, she wore one of the tiniest collars available; and yes like Ashley said, kitten ones work great too!

Generally, the rule is you want to be able to fit 2 fingers under the collar; any more may be too loose and they can slip out; but you also don't want it too tight.

Kalisee had a cat collar because puppy ones were too big. Now she has grown she can wear puppy ones.

When Gemma was 10 weeks, her neck was about 6.2 inches. She weighed around 1.5lbs then. Now she is 7 months and her neck is 7 inches and she weighs 2.7lbs. A kitten collar was the only thing that fit her then. Small breed puppy collars fit her now.
