Measuring your pet

Your pet's measurements are most important in choosing a size.  Weight or breed suggestions are only starting points.

Sizing for pets is not standardized so different manufacturers and companies have different sizing charts.

Know your pet's measurements to make shopping easier.  Dogs just like people come in all shapes and sizes even when they weigh the same weight. Once you know your pet's measurements you can have fun shopping!

Using a soft tape measure is the easiest way to find your pet's vital measurements: Neck, Length (base of the neck to tail), and Chest/Girth (the largest part of the chest ust behind the front legs).  Weight can be a good starting point when looking at size charts but is not as important as the Chest and Neck measurements.  Be sure to give lots of hugs, pets and praise when measuring your pet....they will appreciate the extra care you take in securing the correct size for them, not to mention helping you avoid returns and exchanges.

If your pet is between sizes you may need to size up to ensure a proper fit.

Collar Size Guide for Buckle collars:

Even though you can expect some degree of adjustability with your new dog collar, it is important to measure your dog carefully.

Collars: If you are satisfied with the fit of your dog's current collar, measure that collar from the center of the buckle (start of leather) to the closest and farthest hole, that is the sizing that the collar adjusts.  Each of our collars gives the sizing that the collar adjusts to...for instance a Small might adjust from 11-14" which means that from the base of the buckle to the closest hole is 11" and to the farthest hole is 14".   

If you don't have a current buckle collar that fits, then measure your pet's neck with a soft tape measure allowing 1-2 fingers under the tape measure for comfort, or add 1-2" to the snug neck measurement for comfort.  Typically allowing 1" for smaller dogs is enough and large dogs may need up to 2" added.

Fido Fleece Coats

Correctly fitting your dog requires two measurements:

  1. Length of your dog from its collar to base of its tail.
  2. Distance around the girth from just behind the front legs. Dog must be standing square as shown in order to get proper measurement. Use the chart to find the right size.

 

 

Fido Fleece Sizing

Please keep in mind that the girth measurement is the most important for a proper fit. If you get an odd number for a measurement, we suggest that you round up to the next even numbered size if your dog is big boned (or a little thick) and round down to the next even numbered size if your dog is slimmer. Most dogs can be fit using this sizing method.

General Apparel Sizing:

Unfortunately there is not a Standardized sizing in the Pet Industry for pet apparel.  Sizing from manufacturer to manufacturer varies greatly and what is a Large to one may be a Medium or 3XL to another.   Just as humans come in all sizes and shapes so do our pets.  

To assist you in choosing a size that will ensure the best fit for your pet, we try to give you not only the manufacturers sizing chart but also may give you the actual measurements of an item as well.  In pet clothing the chest measurement is usually the most important that drives a size choice.  Many companies only give the length of a garment but we try to give a neck opening measurement, chest measurement as well as the length to assist you in choosing the right size for your pet. 

 

Soft Harness Sizing:

Be sure to check the sizing of each harness and compare your pet's measurements to the actual measurements of the harness to ensure a proper fit. We carry harnesses from multiple companies and manufacturers and they are not all sized a like.

Soft dog harnesses neck openings slip over your pet's head much like a t-shirt neck opening slips over your head...so not only is your dog's neck measurment at the base of the neck just above the shoulders important but also the circumference of your dog's head so it will fit through the opening.  If your dog has a very broad head you may need to go up a size or if your dog is very long you may need to go up a size.  Please feel free to contact us with help on sizing if you are unsure.  Contact us at info@petswithstyleboutique.com for the quickest response to sizing questions.  Please have your pet's neck measurement, chest measurement, neck to tail length, breed and weight of dog as all can help us help you choose the best size for your pet.

Please measure your pet and compare to Actual Measurements of Harness to ensure a proper fit. Your pet's harness will sit at the base of the neck.  The Back length of the harness will let you know how far on your pet's back from the base of the neck it will be and the abdominal Length measurement will let you know how far back on your pet's abdomen it will be so that you can determine where the chest strap will be. You want it to fit an inch or two behind the front legs to allow for ease of movement.
