Size Chart: How to Measure a Dog for Clothing

 

SIZE CHARTS BASED ON MEASUREMENTS

We get items from many manufacturers and sizes vary. But these rules are pretty accurate, and our policy on size issues (free replacement) cant be beat!

Following are the suggested measurements and corresponding sizes. You would measure your dog from the based on their neck--or about wear their collar sits--to the base of their tail. These measurements do not take girth into consideration. That is the measurement around your dog's belly. If you have thicker dog or one that has a broader chest, or if you dog's back length straddles two sizes, I would recommend going with the larger size.

 

 

Size

Measurement

Extra Small (XS)

6-9 inches

Small (S)

8-12 inches

Medium (M)

14-18 inches

Large (L)

20-24 inches

Extra Large (XL)

22-26 inches

Extra-Extra Large (XXL or 2XL)

26+ inches

 

SIZE CHART BASED ON BREED

These are just suggested sizes based on breed. Only you know if your dog is bigger or smaller, skinnier or pudgier than the typical breed. Also, females in certain breeds, such as French Bulldogs, tend to be significantly smaller than the males. Please take that into consideration when choosing your sizes.

Another thing to consider: what if you have a mixed breed like a cockapoo or labradoodle? Or a good old mutt like my hound mixes? Then you've got to go on both these measurements and eyeballing how your breed matches up with the list below. And when it doubt, size up. Even I was surprised that my 30-pound dog Sadie--I call her my little black dog--isn't so little after all. She wears a size large.
