How To Measure Your Dog

Coat size is determined by measuring base of neck to base of tail.

Be sure your dog is standing squarely, with head up, while measuring. With your dog looking straight ahead, measure from the point where the neck joins the body to the point where the tail joins the body.  Order in even sizes from 8″ to 28″, 13″ only exception. If your dog’s tail goes up (like Jack Russell Terr, Schnauzer), round down, if tail goes down, round up. Use the breed size chart below to determine coat size.


Stanley is Happy ! His coat is not shifting as he romps and plays.
