When searching for the best dog collar for your Pitbull, Staffordshire Terrier or American Bully, you’ll find plenty of dog collars available at Mimi Green. Regardless of your dog’s size or temperament, here’s a helpful guide to help you choose the right Pitbull collar.

Measuring Pitbull Neck Size for Custom Pitbull Collars

Prior to searching for your Pitbull dog collar, you should measure your dog’s neck. You can take a measurement by using a flexible measuring tape and wrapping it around the width of the neck where the collar will sit. This total will be the ideal length of the dog collar. You should be able to comfortably slip two fingers between the collar and the dog’s neck.

Pitbull Neck Size

Pitbulls have larger necks, with sizes ranging from around 14 to 18 plus inches, so you’ll typically want to find a dog collar that’s somewhere within this range.

Pitbull Temperament and Personality

Although Pitbull Terriers often have a bad reputation, we at Mimi Green know that they are also one of the sweetest, most loyal breeds around. Your Pitbull’s behavior and tendencies should factor in to the type of Pitbull collar you choose. Pitbulls have gained an unfairly bad reputation due to many instances of mistreatment resulting in aggression, but Pitbulls are generally not aggressive dogs and tend to be friendly in nature. However, they are strong and have a high predatory drive due to Pitbulls having been bred to chase and herd livestock.

Depending on your Pitbull’s personality, you may not need a particularly tough collar, but if your Pitty likes to pull and/or is aggressive toward other dogs, you may want a stronger collar such as a leather or leather alternative. A martingale collar with it’s limited slip and ability to tighten when pulled may also be a good choice for pullers to give you more control.

Best Collars for Pitbulls

Oftentimes, a wide leather or nylon dog collar works well for American Staffordshire Terriers and Bully’s due to their flexibility, durability, and comfort.

Pitbull Leather Collars

You can also customize your Mimi Green’s leather collar with various colors and designs, as well as laser engraved personalized buckles, tags and nameplates. Leather material will help make sure the dog is both comfortable and stylish, safe and identified should they get away from you.

Martingale Collar for Pitbulls

If you’re looking for more heavy duty dog collars for a Pitbull, martingale collars are also ideal if pulling is a problem, but unlike choke collars, they don’t cause discomfort and are more ideal for Pitbulls. These collars are also the best option for Pitbulls with sensitive skin.
