How to measure for collars and coats

How to measure for a collar:

The best way to measure your dog is using a soft tape measure. If you do not have one you can use a piece or string (or shoe lace) around the dog's neck and head and then measure the length of the string with a ruler.

Measurement A:  Around the widest part of the head. This is essential for house collars and martingale collars as these will slip over the dogs head and do not open

Measurement B: Behind the ears around the thinnest part of the neck.

Measurement C: Around the base of the neck at the widest point where the collar will sit. Use this measurement when choosing a braided tag collar

Collars are adjustable so when ordering choose the size that fits best with all these measurements. If you require smaller or larger collars then you can request these when ordering via the Create your Own Collar listings by selecting 'other neck size' and specifying your requirements

How to measure for a coat:


Using a soft tape measure note down the measurement between the shoulder blades (Point A) and just below the base of the tail, between the 'bum swirls' (Point B) in inches and this will be the coat size. The coats have no extra length added so where the tape measure ends at the back is where the back of the coat will end. 
Please ensure your measurements are correct before ordering and always measure your dog and not an existing garrment. This is how to measure for all coats regardless of neck style. Please do not measure the dogs upper neck length as well as this will result in your coat being too long 


If the measurement is inbetween sizes or you require a longer fit then choose the next size up

To measure for a harness hole start from Point A, which will be the start of the neck of the coat, and down to where the D ring of the harness is. The harness holes measure approx. 2 inches and your measurement will then be approximately the centre of the hole

How to measure for jammies:

Chest Measurement: Measure the circumference around the deepest part of the chest in inches loosely around the chest

Back Measurement:  The same as when measuring for a coat. Using a soft tape measure note down the measurement between the shoulder blades to the base of the tail in inches

Neck Measurement: Measure the circumference around the widest part of the neck in inches

Refer to the size guide table in the jammies listings to confirm the size required. Please Do Not Measure an existing garment, you must measure your dog
