Everything you need to know about measuring your dog
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOGS NECK
All dogs are different and may vary in size and shape. Here is a general guideline to fit your dog appropriately for a collar.
A collar usually sits at the base of the neck just above the shoulder. Use a measuring tape take it snug around your dogs neck allowing sufficient room to slip two fingers between what will be the collar and the dogs neck.
If when a collar is on your dogs neck you cannot fit two fingers it is too tight or if there is extra room it is too loose.
HOW TO MEASURE THE LENGTH OF YOUR DOG
A coat size is determined by measuring the nape of the neck to the base of the tail or what you would call their top line.
Be sure your dog is standing squarely, with the head up and he is looking straight ahead. Take the measuring tape from the point where the neck joins the body to the point where the tail joins the body.
HOW TO MEASURE THE CHEST OR GIRTH OF YOUR DOG
For a coat it is also necessary to measure your dogs girth.
While they are standing for your length measurement find the widest part of your dog's chest. This is generally located behind the elbows. Take your measuring tape around their body so it is snug but not too tight.
