Here’s how to measure your dog with our easy sizing:
  1. Have your dog stand straight with head up. A dog lying down or sitting will give incorrect measurements.
  2. Use a flexible tape measure to take the measurements, not a hard straight yard stick or ruler. A seamstress or tailor type tape measure is best. If you do not own a soft measuring tape, use a piece of rope, ribbon or string to mark the measurement on your dog and then align the rope with a yard stick to determine the length or girth.
  3. Measure the back length from the base of the neck (the withers) to the base of the tail. The withers is the highest part of the shoulder. Do not measure from the collar, as it is worn differently for every dog and will give you an inaccurate measurement.
  4. Measure the chest girth by measuring the circumference of the chest at the thickest point (usually right behind the front legs).
  5. Measure the neck girth by measuring the circumference at the base of the neck.
