2. Measure your dog

  1. Use a soft tape measure or wide rope to take the measurements, not a hard straight ruler.
  2. Your dog must be standing straight with head up. If your dog is laying down or sitting his/her back dimension will be longer than the actual back length.
  3. Measure from the base of the neck (just in front of the shoulder blades) to the base of tail.
  4. The coat length should be the same or longer by 1 to 2 inches as your dog’s back length.

Measuring back lengthBack Length

Measure from the base of the neck just in front of the shoulder blades to the base of the tail. Not from the collar, as many dogs wear their collars in different place.

Chest Girth

Chest Girth

Circumference of the chest at the deepest point.

Chest Width

Chest Width

Horizontal distance across the chest at the widest point.

Neck Girth

Neck Girth

Circumference of the base of the neck, at the widest point.

3. Choose your coat or sweater

  1. Choose the coat size based on your dog’s back length, chest girth and breed. (for example – If your dog has a back length of 25″ and is a Doberman, then order the All Breed L-27″ coat or All Breed Large Sweater. If your male Greyhound has a back length of 30″ then order the Long & Lean L-31″ coat or the L&L Large Sweater).
  2. View the Sizing and Breed Guide to help you determine the best size of coat, sweater and head muff for your dog.
  3. If you are deciding between two sizes, choose the smaller one, our coats fit on the large side.
  4. Don’t choose a size that is several inches longer than your dogs back length. This will not give them more coverage.

If you are still uncertain of which coat size to order please feel free to contact Doggy Boho for help or advice pleae email info@doggyboho.co.uk or telephone 01902 851866
