How to Measure Your Dog

When buying a new gear for your beloved furry friend it is important to make sure you are getting the correct size. Ideally - the first time. To do that always measure your dog accurately and the right way. Here is a simple guide that explain how it's done.

Required Tools

Where & What

(A) Chest

Measure right behind the dog’s front legs, around the widest part of the torso.

(B) Lower Neck

Measure around the lower part of the dog’s neck for harnesses or coats.

(C) Upper Neck

Collars sit higher up the dog’s neck. Measure here for collars.

(D) Back Length

Measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail. 

Rule #1: SIZE UP

If between two sizes, SIZE UP!


A good rule of thumb (or rather, finger) to test for snugness is to leave enough room for two fingers between the gear and your dog.
