How to Measure Your Dog for Clothing and Accessories
Start at the base of the neck and stretch straight across your dog’s back to the base of the tail. Keep in mind that not all items will cover the entire length of the back.
For chest girth, wrap the tape measure completely around just behind your dog’s front legs. If the measurement falls between sizes, the larger is probably the better choice.
Measure around the neck above the shoulders, placing two fingers inside the measuring tape for a comfortable fit. Clothing should not be too tight here, so err on the side of generosity.
