Are you sure your dog is wearing a jacket that fits him perfectly? Or are you a little worried every time you make a purchase, if you won't have to exchange the product for a different size?
Shopping for clothes for our four-legged friends can sometimes be a bit of a chore. We want them not only to be happy and warm, but also to feel comfortable and be able to move freely. This is where proper measurement plays a key role.
How to measure a dog correctly?
1. Neck Circumference - Measure where the collar is usually worn. The tape should fit comfortably, not too tightly.
2. Chest circumference - The most important measure. Place the measuring tape behind the front legs and wrap it around the widest part of the chest. Here too, the tape should not be too tight.
3. Body Length - Measure from the withers (the place between the shoulder blades where the neck begins) to the base of the tail.
Don't forget to include these measurements in the notes when placing your order. This will make it easier for us to choose a jacket that will fit your dog like a glove, and thus avoid unnecessary replacements.
Why is this important?
A correctly chosen size will not only guarantee your dog's comfort, but also prevent possible health problems caused by long-term wearing of inappropriate clothing. In addition, when the dog looks good and feels good, it is a joy not only for him, but also for you.
