How to measure your dog?

To determine the proper size for your dog, measure your dog’s neck, chest, and back with a soft tape measure following the instructions below.

Beware: when measuring your dog, it must be standing in a normal position (not laying down or sitting).

  • A. Neck circumference is measured at the base of the neck where the collar sits. Pull the tape snug but not tight.
  • B. Back length is measured from the base of your pet’s neck where the collar sits, to the base of the tail.
  • C. Chest girth is measured at the widest part of the pet’s chest just behind the front legs. Measure around the entire chest. Voilà!
