Before you buy any apparel for your fur baby pooches online, it is important to make sure you’re all prepared to give your pooches a complete body size measurement, in order to make sure it will fit when your order arrives. All you need is to take a measuring tape and a pen and paper, then record a few necessary details. This is also useful when you’re sewing your own fur babies clothing.
Follow the steps below to determine the proper size for your dog’s neck, girth, chest and the length for their back.
- Neck –measure how many inches around your dog’s neck (circumference) loosely as you feel is necessary.
- Girth – measure the inches around your dog’s girth loosely.
- Chest – measure the inches distance from the center of the chest around to back of line for girth loosely, generally important as the dog may not walk comfortably if it is too tight.
- Back – measure the inches from the top back approximately where the collar would fit. Then pull the tape measure to the base of the tail loosely.

You may also use the size chart below as a general guideline, if you don’t have any available measuring tape to use.
In any case you don’t have a measuring tape available with you, try to use any thread, ribbon or yarn and use any regular ruler to count the measurement by inches.
