MEASURING YOUR DOG

Measure your dog when then are standing upright. Do not try and measure them when they are sitting or lying down as you may get an incorrect measurement. We recommend that you use a soft tape when measuring your dog.

For Made to Measure coats please provide exact measurements as tolerances are allowed when making the coat to allow for a comfortable fit.

 

 

Length (A)

Measure from the base of the dog's neck to the top of the tail (or longer should you prefer). Make sure that your dog is standing squarely, with head up. Do not take the measurement from the collar as on some breeds this may sit higher up your dog's neck.

Girth (B)

Measure around your dog's middle, halfway between the front and back legs, as this is where the strap will fasten.

If your dog has a particularly deep chest please feel free to use the Additional Information box to provide chest and waist measurements (see below for details).

Neck Size (C)

Measure the circumference of the neck at its widest part.   

Additional Measurements

Please use the Additional Information text box to provide any further information that you may feel to be useful. For example if your dog is particularly deep chested you may wish to provide the chest and waist measurement too, or if you have a broad dog you may wish to provide the breast measurement. 

 

Standard Sizes

Please note that the breed guide is a suggestion only and we would always recommend measuring your dog to ensure that the coat you purchase is a good fit. There is a small degree of adjustment in the girth of coats as they fasten with velcro or an adjustable webbing strap. Therefore if your dog's measurements are only a few centimetres out from the girth stated above a standard size coat should be suitable.

We also make Made to Measure coats and the price of the coats are based on the length of the coat.
