Measuring your dog is important as sizes for dog clothing and accessories can be confusing; sizes of dog clothes and collars cater for the tiniest of dogs to the largest of dogs, so your ‘small’ Cocker 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 that gives your dog the most room.
All dog clothing and especially dog 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. Please refer to the size chart shown for your selected product as some sizes vary between styles.
Neck: Measure your dog’s neck as you would for a dog collar.
Length: Measure from the base of your dogs neck (where the collar would sit) to the base of his/her tail along your dogs back bone (sometimes called the Topline)
Chest: Measure right around your dogs body from behind his/her front legs around the deepest part of your dog’s chest.
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.
