How to Find the Right Dog Coat

Determine the proper dog coat size for your dog by measuring the base of your dog’s neck to the base of your dog’s tail.

  • Be sure your dog is standing squarely, with head up, while measuring.
  • With your dog standing up, looking straight ahead, measure from the point where the neck joins the body to the point where the tail joins the body. This is the back length and coat size.
  • Order in even sizes from 8″ to 28″ (11″ and 13″ being the only exceptions).
  • If your dog’s tail goes up (like a Jack Russell Terrier or Doberman), and is on the slim side, round down.
  • If your dog’s tail goes down, and is a bit heavier in the body, round up.
  • If your dog is very narrow-bodied or short-legged (up to size 18″), consider the Dachshund Coat.

Use the breed size chart below to help determine the right coat size for your dog.
