Happy Tuesday! Today for our Tuesday Tip we’ll be talking about how to properly measure your dog for a new coat for the winter months.
Make sure to use a soft tape measure or a rope to take measurements.
It is best that your dog is standing straight up to get the correct measurements.
The areas you will want to measure are as follows:
Back Length- start at the base of the neck in front of the shoulder blades and go to the base of the tail
Chest Circumference/Girth- measure at the thickest point of the chest
Chest Width- measure across the front of the chest
Neck Circumference/Girth- measure at the base of the neck
Many companies will have sizing charts on their websites as they want to make sure you choose the right fit for your dog. If you’re heading to a pet store though verify their measurements before you go!
