Measuring Your Dog

Dog Clothes & Collars

measuring your dog is important as sizes for dog clothes can be confusing; remember that sizes cater for the tiniest of dogs, so your "small" spaniel may in fact be an x large in clothing when compared to x small for a teacup chihuahua! we recommend you measure your dog using the guidelines shown and choose the size giving the most room. Please choose your dog’s clothing according to measurements, NOT the clothing size.

remember that any clothing and especially collars should fit comfortably and snug without any restriction or tightness. Dogs come in all shapes and sizes and the information shown is for guidance only, we are happy to exchange items for alternative sizes where available.

Please refer to the size chart shown for your selected product as some sizes vary between styles. If you require any assistance please contact us. We suggest that you read all sizing information for each product carefully to ensure that you get the right fit for your doggie.

Please make sure your dog is standing and measure as follows:

Neck: Measure the neck as you would for a dog collar.

Length: Measure from the base of the neck (where the collar would sit) to the base of the tail along the dogs back bone (sometimes called the Topline).

Chest: Measure right around the body from behind the front legs around the deepest part of your dog’s chest.

The correct Doggie bed size

When your dog is lying down measure body length, then add 8 inches. The total is the width your pet will need for an oval dog bed, and the depth your pet will need for a rectangular bed. If the bed has a bolster or other raised exterior, you'll need to consider the outer dimensions not the external ones. If you stuck between two sizes, go for the larger one.

TIP: If you have no tape measure suitable, use a lead or a piece of string and measure this against a tape/ruler. If your dog is stouter, has a thick coat, broader chest or is at the maximum measurement for the size listed against the product you may want to go up the next size for a better fit.
