Measuring your dog for fit


1. Stand your dog on a level surface with dog standing evenly on all four legs


2. Measure around the rib cage of your dog at the widest point (chest) in    centimetres to get the girth measurement. 


Some harnesses or coats also have a length measurement shown - if so, then to measure length:  measure the length from the base of the dog’s neck to the base of the dog’s tail in centimetres following the line of the spine.
