DOG CLOTHING: Please measure your dog! We can't stress this enough. Most errors in purchasing dog clothes are caused by owners guessing at measurements. Measuring is easy, and will save you time and money in the long run.
DO NOT RELY ON THE WORD SIZE ALONE: (i.e. extra small, small, medium, etc). There is NO standard in the pet industry for sizing! A size medium for one manufacturer is a size extra small for another.
CHOOSE CLOTHES ACCORDING TO YOUR DOG'S MEASUREMENTS. Please do not guess based on the breed of your dog!
READ SPECIFIC SIZING INFORMATION FOR EACH ITEM OF CLOTHING. This information is located on the product page under the "Product Details" tab. If the chest (girth) or the neck product measurements are smaller than your dog's measurements for those areas, the clothing will not fit! If you have questions, or are unsure which size to choose, please contact us and we will be happy to help you!
TAKE ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS. Please make sure your dog is standing, get a flexible measuring tape or a piece of string, and follow these easy instructions:
IMPORTANT: If the measurements are between sizes, or your pet has a stout build, deep chest, or is overweight, going up one size is recommended.
PET CARRIERS: Measure your dog's length and height, and weigh them. Once you've found the dog carrier you like, review the detailed sizing information on that product's page under the "Description" tab. If you are unsure of the size, we suggest ordering the next larger size.
COLLARS AND HARNESSES: We recommend that you measure your dog precisely to ensure an accurate fit. If your dog's measurements fall between two sizes, we suggest ordering the next larger size.
Collars: Measure behind your dog's neck and allow two fingers between the neck and the measuring tape to ensure a comfortable fit.
Harnesses: Measure behind your dog's front legs and wrap completely around the chest - this will give you the "girth".
SHOES AND BOOTIES: Measure your dog's paw from back to front (including their claws), while the dog is standing, and their weight is on the paw. If you are unsure of the size, we suggest ordering the next larger size.
BEDS: Measure your dog's body length when they are lying down, and add another 8 inches. This total measurement is the width your dog will need for an oval bed, and the depth they will need for a rectangular bed. If the bed has a bolster or other raised exterior, you will need to consider the outer dimensions also. If you are unsure of the size, we suggest ordering the next larger size.
