Fitting Your Dog

How to Measure Your Dog for the Perfect Coat

Our dog coats are not custom fit but we still need your dog's measurements to ensure you get the best fitting coat for your dog. Just jot down a few simple measurements and send them to us. We'll follow up with you within 24 hours to confirm all the details.

Learn how to correctly measure your dog:

Use a soft tape measure or wide rope to take the measurements. Do not use a hard straight ruler or carpenters tape measure.

When measuring the back length, your dog must be standing straight with his/her head up. If your dog is lying down or sitting, his/her back length will be longer than the actual length.

Measure from the base of the neck (just in front of the shoulder blades) to the base of tail. Do not measure from where the collar sits.

The coat length should be the same or longer by 1 to 2 inches as your dogs’ back length.

Don't Know the Measurements? Use the Dog Coat Sizing Chart

Maybe you're thinking of buying a dog coat as a present, or for a dog that has yet to arrive. If you don't know the size of the dog check out the Breed Guideline Chart below. This chart is also a guideline for how our sizes and pricing works.

Please note, these are average dog sizes and we cannot guarantee the fit to the dog using this chart. However, if the fit isn't right you can always return the unused for a credit towards another coat.
