Please give some time to measure and size up carefully before purchasing and your dog will love you for it. Please email us if you have any questions about Size & Fit. All of our goods are measured in centimeters (cm).
The three basic measurements of a dog’s body are BACK, CHEST and NECK.
BACK measurement is the length of your dog’s back. Measure along the top of the spine from the high part of the back between the shoulders, where the neck joins the body, to the base of the tail where the tail joins the body.
CHEST measurement is taken all the way around the biggest part of your dog’s ribcage. Measure just behind the shoulders down and around just behind the front legs and back up to the starting point.
NECK measurement is taken at the place where your dog’s collar would naturally rest. You need to ensure you measure a complete circle around the animal’s neck. For collar sizing the general rule is to take the dog’s actual neck measurement and add approximately 5cm (or 2 inches) to get your collar size. A properly fitting collar should allow you to slip two fingers easily underneath, between the collar and the dog’s neck.
