Measure Your Dog

Here are a few suggestions for taking accurate measurements:

*If you can, find someone to help you; This person can help support the dog in a standing position while you measure. PLEASE TAKE MEASUREMENTS VERY CAREFULLY! THIS IS A CUSTOM BUILT PRODUCT REQUIRING YOUR TIME AND YOUR MONEY. FOR TINY BREEDS, YOU’LL ONLY GET A LITTLE BIT OF ADJUSTMENT, SO MEASUREMENTS NEED TO BE WITHIN 1/2″ AND AS ACCURATE AS POSSIBLE. HIRING A PROFESSIONAL DOES NOT IMPLY ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS. ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK.

*Although taking the measurements while standing is preferred, if you can’t find someone to help you, then you can take the measurements with your dog laying down.

*A metal tape measure like the one in the pictures works great for height, length, and width measurements.

*Use a soft tape for the girth measurements.

*For measurements D and E, a more accurate measurement can be taken if you place two flat items on either side of your dog’s hips and shoulders, and measure the distance straight across.

*AGAIN- DOUBLE CHECK YOUR MEASUREMENTS
