AKC STANDARD:

Neck-The neck is slightly arched. It's strong, thick, and with enough length to carry the head proudly.


Clarification:A strong, well muscled neck should have a slight rise or crest behind the skull and should increase in breadth as it blends smoothly into the shoulders. The position of the shoulder blade in relation to the backbone determines the appearance of neck length. The skin on the neck should be loose but fit smoothly.


Undesirable: Thin neck ; neck too long or too short; tight skin.
