How To Measure Your Dog


Many pet products come in size variations for specific ages and breed of dog, so knowing how to measure your dog will come in really handy. Collars, coats, novelty outfits; all come in a number of size options allowing for a good fit. Measuring your dog is simple when you know which measurement to take.


How to Measure Your Dog:

Most items are sized either by collar size or by Topline measurement…


Dog Collars: When measuring your dog’s neck, pull the tape snug, but not tight and take the measurement. Allow for about two fingers to fit between the neck and collar.


Dog Clothing: To find your size needed for these items you need to measure your dog’s Topline: measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail.


Dog Harnesses: Dog harnesses tend to fit around your dog’s girth. To find his size measure around your dog’s chest, just behind his front legs.
