Measure twice, order once!

Quick Tip:
Use string for easy measuring. Make sure the string is comfortably around or along the area being measured, not too tight, then pinch where string ends meet and use a ruler or tape measure to get your measurement!

A. Neck:
The circumference of your dog’s neck at its widest point.

B. Length:
When your dog is standing, measure the distance between the collar and the base of the tail. If your dog has a thick coat, deep chest or is overweight, we recommend going up one size for proper fit.

C. Girth:
When your dog is standing, measure the circumference of your dog’s chest, behind his front legs, at its widest part.

Products That Need Measuring

Boots – measure paw width
1). Have your dog stand on a firm surface. 2). Place a piece of blank paper under a front paw. 3. Lift the dog's other front paw so that his weight is placed firmly on the paw being measured. 4. Mark the paper at the paw's widest point on the left and right sides. 5. Use a ruler to measure.
