How to Measure Your Dog

We recommend viewing our

"How to Measure Your Dog" video here.

 

 

There are six measurements we need to take to make a great custom made coat for your dog.

Please use a soft tape-measurer.

 

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOG'S LENGTH

With your dog standing, measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail.

 

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOG'S NECK

Measure the circumference of the neck, not too tight, not too loose.

 

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOG'S GIRTH

Measure around your dog's rib cage 2" behind where the front leg ends,

 

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOG'S CHEST

Measure the chest width from shoulder bone to shoulder bone, under the neck.

 

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOG'S HEIGHT

Finally, we want to determine the proper coat length,  ideally ending the

coat at the top of the front and back legs. Measure from the spinal cord at the

center of the back to the top of each leg, front and back.
