How to measure your dogHow-To-Measure

  1. First, make sure you’re using a soft tape measure.
  2. Second, make sure your dog is standing on all four paws.

We use your dog’s actual measurements to construct a coat that is comfortable and fits. Each product is cut and sewn by hand.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4!  We are here to help if you have any questions.

 

For Coats:

1. NECK: measure the circumference around the base of the neck.
