HOW TO TAKE YOUR DOG’S MEASUREMENTS

 

Before selecting the size, please bear in mind the following instructions when taking your dog’s measurements.

 

  • Remember, there are other factors to consider when selecting a size: the dog may be overweight, too thin, have an elongated body, robust build, etc.
  • Please don't hesitate to ask us, we will be only too pleased to help.

 

MEASUREMENTS

 

A - Back length : from the cross to the point where the tail starts.

B - Neck diameter: measure the circumference of your dog’s neck, allowing about one or two fingers of extra space.

C - Chest length: measure the girth at the widest part of the chest, as shown in the illustration:

TIPS

 

Below are a few tips on how to take your dog’s measurements to ensure you purchase the right size.

 

  • Measure the circumference of your dog’s neck, allowing about one or two fingers of extra space. The resulting centimetres will give you the size.
  •  

  • For CLOTHES (shirts, coats, raincoats, etc.) measure the dog’s back (as shown in the drawing), from the cross to the point where the tail starts). Remember to bear in mind the dog’s girth (the widest part of the chest). If the value is, for example, 33 cm and the dog is thin, the M size will be just perfect, but if the dog is slightly overweight, and its girth and waist measurements are larger, perhaps the L size will be more appropriate, so that it can wear the garment comfortably. The same goes for certain breeds of dog whose chest measurements are larger, e.g., English bulldogs or bull terriers.

When referring to sizes XS, S, M and L, these correspond to the following measurements (the breed recommendations are given as a guide, and we recommend you take the exact measurements to ascertain the correct size):

 

    • SIZE XS: For dogs with back lengths up to 20 cm (mini Chihuahuas, Toy Yorkshire terriers, puppies).
    •  

    • SIZE S:  For dogs with back lengths between 24 and 29 cm (Chihuahuas, Yorkshire terriers, mini Maltese, Toy poodle, mini Pinscher, puppies).
    •  

    • SIZE M:  For dogs with back lengths between 29 and 33 cm (Maltese, medium-size Yorkshire terrier, Pekinese, Pomeranian, Bichon Frise).
    •  

    • SIZE L:  For dogs with back lengths between 33 and 38 cm (medium poodle, Westi, mini Schnauzer, Shi Tzu, Lhasa Apso, Scottish Terrier, Fox Terrier, French Bulldog, Carlino, Dachshund Teckel).
