How to measure your pet

To determine the proper size for your dog.


Using a tape measure, measure your dog's neck, chest and back.


Neck - Measure around your dog's neck with just enough room added as you feel is necessary for them to be comfortable.


Chest (or girth) - Measure your dog's chest at its widest point, all the way round which is typically right behind the front legs and then around its back. This is generally the most important measurement for clothing. If it is too small, it will not fit, if it is too big, your dog will not walk comfortably.


Back length (or body length) - Measure the length from the base of the neck to the base of the tail. This measurement will determine where the garment will stop along the back.
