How to Know What Size Dog Sweater to Get?
When picking a size for your dog you need to pay attention to the sizing chart. Many dog sweaters are made for small dogs only. So when they offer the sweaters in sizes ranging from x-small to x-large it doesn’t necessarily mean the x-large will fit a large breed dog. In many cases x-large is just an x-large small dog like a mini poodle. So, make sure you look at the actual measurements provided on the sizing chart for that garment. Also if you are between sizes always try the larger size first.
How to Measure a Dog for a Sweater
When measuring your dog for a sweater there are four main areas you need to measure.
- The width of the neck
- When measuring the width of the neck include room in the measurement for two adult sized fingers. Make sure to measure the widest part of the neck.
- The width of the head
- In addition to measuring the width of your dog’s neck also measure the widest part of the head to make sure the sweater will fit over it.
- The width of the chest
- When measuring the width of the chest do not pull the tape measurer too tight. Make sure to measure the widest part of the neck.
- The length of the body
- Measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail.
Tip: You might need someone to keep your dog still to make sure you get the correct measurements.
Tip: If you don’t have a flexible measuring tape you can use a string or even their leash to determine the length. Then measure that using a ruler to determine the correct measurement.
