How to measure your dog

It is important to take correct measurements of your dog to determine the right size of an item of clothing or an accessory.

  • We recommend following the advice given below on taking your dog’s measurements.
  • For greater convenience measurements should be taken using a tape measure.

The length of the back (1)

  • To correctly measure the length of the back, your dog must stand up straight on all four legs.
  • Place the tape measure along the spine from the base of the neck to the start of the tail.

Around the neck (2)

  • Measure the size of the neck where the collar is placed.
  • Be careful not to over-tighten the tape measure. Make sure to leave space for a finger between the neck and the tape measure.

Around the chest (3)

  • Measure the widest part of the thorax, just behind the two forelegs.
  • Be careful not to over-tighten the tape measure. Make sure to leave space for a finger between the chest and the tape measure.

You have taken your dog’s measurements, now you can check the chart below.
