If you need a hand with measuring for the right collar size for your pet, this handy guide will help you.
You will need:
1. Soft seamstress tape measure (or some string and a rigid ruler)
2. A well behaved pet
3. Lots of treats
Measuring collar size
- take the tape measure and measure the circumference close to the base of your pets' neck around where their current collar usually sits.
- Pull the measure snug but not too tight
- Make sure there's room to fit two fingers between the tape measure and your pet's neck - this will ensure your measurement leaves room so your pet feels comfortable
- If you're using string, note the point you've measured around the neck and lay out against a rigid ruler.
- Give your pet lots of fuss.
Measuring Harness size
- follow the steps above to get an accurate collar measurement
- Using the tape measure, measure the circumference of your pet's chest at its broadest part - this is usually right behind their armpits.
- Like the collar measurements, ensure the measure fits snug but not too tight. This will give them room to feel comfortable when the harness is on.
- More fuss (and maybe a treat) required.
Measuring for Apparel
- Follow the instructions as above and note down the measurements
- Now it's time to measure the length of your pet - get them to stand upright in order for accurate measurement.
- Take a measurement from the base of their neck between their shoulder blades to the base of their tail. The base of the neck is where the top of your pet's coat/jumper will sit
- This measurement will be an accurate length to gauge the right size apparel to order.
- All done - Lots more fuss and treats for being good boys and girls.
