TIPS AND GUIDELINES FOR MEASURING YOUR PET
Measuring your pet is easy and fun! Here are the measurements you will most commonly need to determine sizing.
Length: Measure the dog from the base (lowest part) of their neck to the base of their tail. The base of the tail is where the tail begins from the dog's back.
Girth/Chest: Measure the dog at the widest part of their chest around the ribcage.
Neck: Measure around the dog's neck where a collar would naturally rest.
Remember to account for breathing room for your dog! You will also achieve more accurate measurements if your dog is standing when you measure him or her.
We sometimes get requests from customers to indicate the correct size for their pet based on breed. We can offer some information, but ultimately this decision has to rest with the customer. Pets of the same breed will differ and have different sizes based on weight, height, length and so forth. Just as two humans of German descent may vary in size, so will German Shepherds!
Here is a video illustrating where to correctly measure your dog.
