How to Measure Your Dog For Clothing

To determine the best fit for your dog, use the following tips to guide you:

When measuring, try to have your dog stand in a relaxed stance. Use a fabric or soft tape measure, and measure completely around the appropriate body part. Keep the measuring tape a bit loose.

Please remember that every dog is different and might need to wear a size up, especially if your dog has longer, thicker fur, is larger-boned, or has a deeper, fuller chest. This might apply especially to sweaters, dresses, or t-shrts if you prefer a looser fit. Our coats are cut more generously to enable layering, so you might not need to go a size up, even if you prefer a looser fit.

When choosing the perfect fit for Lovepawz pet clothing and apparel, measure your dog's back, neck, and chest:

 Back: Measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail.
 Neck: Measure all the way around the neck at top of the shoulders.
 Chest: Measure girth all the way around the broadest part of the chest or ribcage.
