How To Measure Your Dog
Don't guess!. To get a proper fit you must measure your dog's girth and then choose the corresponding vest size. To get an accurate measurement be sure the dog is standing not sitting. To take the girth measurement use a fabric measuring tape. Do not use a metal measuring tape as it will not provide an accurate measurement. Measure your dog around the rib cage behind the front legs at the deepest part of the chest while your dog is standing. If you don't have a fabric or soft tape measure, then use a piece of string or cord and wrap completely around your dog's girth and mark where the ends meet. Take that string and place it on top of a ruler, metal tape, or yardstick to get your dog's chest measurement. If your dog falls in between sizes order the size higher
