Dog Coat measurement

Dog coat size is the length measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail. This measurement will determine where the garment will stop along the back. However, the back length will not matter if the chest measurement is not correct.

Your dog’s chest is measured from directly behind the front legs and behind the back. This is generally the most important measurement for clothing. If it is too small, the item will not fit, if it is too big, your dog will not walk comfortably. This area is generally the widest part of a dog’s body.

If a measurement falls between two sizes, we recommend going for the larger size.
