Sizing Your Dog
Did you know there are 100s of different dog breeds? Plus all the new hybrids! Each having their own unique shape and body dimensions. This is why it is so important to know the current measurements of your own dog before you shop. Exchanges can be avoided by your proper measurement of your pet. Each designer has their own unique sizing and items can fit differently than the next designer. Consult each item's description or specific size chart (located on each product page) with your pet's measurements.

Here's How to Measure Your Dog:
There are 4 important measurements that dog designer's use in their size charts: (a soft measuring tape is easiest to use)

Measure from the base of the neck (where the collar typically sits) to the base of the tail (where it connects to the hindquarters). Sometimes designers base their sizing on the dog's back length, and this will be how you select your size (i.e. many sweaters are sized solely by back length as the knit stretches over girth).

Measure the circumference (all the way around) at the widest part of your pet's chest/ribcage. Depending on the breed, it is typically right behind their front legs.

Measure the neck's circumference (the length around their neck) at the point where their collar comfortably sits.

This is the least important when sizing products, but still helpful to know. For example the build and sizing of a 10 lb pug is much different than a 10 lb dachshund.

Use all of these measurements together to find your dog's size. If a dog is in between two sizes, it is best to go up a size for comfort.

Note: Avoid exchanges causing extra shipping charges and the heartbreak of having to wait for a new size. You know your dog's size better than anyone. Now that you have your current measurements you're ready to have fun & shop for your most sincere admirer! But first, give plenty of hugs, kisses, and belly rubs.
