How to find the right size for my dog ?



Picking the right size can be a challenge. But no worries we are here to help.

We do our best to offer products that could fit most of the dogs whether it is small, medium or large dogs.

Please note that the sizes such as S, M, L  are only there for reference. Therefore it is advisable to check the size tables with all the metrics (back length, chest girth, neck girth) for every product that is of interest to be able to find the right size for your dog. Some products may be alright in XL but others only in L or M.

The first step to do is to measure your dog's neck girth, chest girth and back length (as shown on the below picture) and compare these measurements with the ones in the size table on the page of the product that interests you.

 


For the 2 legged clothes such as T-Shirts, Hoodies, Sweaters, the neck girth and chest girth must be checked in priority. It is really important to make sure that the clothes fit in these areas. Sometimes, depending on dogs some T Shirts or other clothes may be slightly short in the back but the dog could still wear them if they fit in the neck and the chest.

For the 4 legged clothes such as tracksuits or some raincoats, the chest girth and back length must be checked in priority. It is really important to make sure that the clothes fit in these areas.

To avoid having clothes slightly tight on your dog or if your dog is still growing, we advise to pick a slightly larger size to have a bit of space.

Please check the below size chart to get an approximate idea of the size that may be a good fit for your dog.
