Because we have designed dog gear to perfectly fit your pooch. Proper measurements must be taken in order to find the best fit.
Please watch the short video on how and where to measure you dog in order to get the gear that will fit like it was designed specifically for your dog.
There is also more detailed instructions for measuring legs and paws below.
1. The back length should be measured from the withers (not the collar) to the base of the tail, while the dog is standing in normal position.
2. The neckline measurement should be taken at the base of the neck, this being the widest point of the neck. The neckline of an overall can be larger than the circumference of the dog's neck, as it can be adjusted to fit a smaller neck.
3. The chest measurement should be taken at the widest point of the chest, from behind the front legs. To ensure sufficient freedom of movement, the chest of an overall should be 5-20 cm/2-8" wider than the dog's chest.
4. The front leg length should be measured from the bottom of the rib cage along the inner side of the leg to the wrist bone. The legs of an overall are of an appropriate length when they reach down to the dog's forearms.
Boots: For the best results fitting boots place a piece of paper on the floor have your dog stand on it then trace around the paw with a pen or pencil. Once you have the outline of your dogs paw measure the widest point and compare to the size chart.
NOTE: Measure both front and back paws as they will be different sizes in most cases.
