Do you ever have a hard time trying to figure out what size your dog is when ordering a cool collar or a fashionable tee? Fear no more, for we are here to help you learn how to measure your dog for sizes!

Measuring your dog is super quick and easy. For collar size, measure your dog’s neck, keeping two fingers between the neck and measuring tape to ensure a comfortable fit. For apparel size, you will need to measure the body length of your dog. You only need to measure from the dog’s tail to the nape of the neck. Finally, for harnesses, you will need to measure your dog’s chest girth. You can measure the chest girth by placing the measuring tape behind the front legs and make a full circle around to the shoulders. Now that you know your pooch’s size, shop away!
