When sizing your dog for items from Lap of Luxury Dog Spa, we have a few suggestions to make your decision more accurate so you get the correct item the first time.
Take a tape measure and wrap loosely around their neck, leaving enough room to easily slip 3 fingers underneath. That will give them plenty of room for comfort and that measurement you can use to determine what size collar you will need to order. If just using an old collar to determine, start the measurement from the buckle and end at the hole in the collar most commonly used. (Do not measure the overall length of the collar).
If ordering a harness, the figures shown on the product are chest sizes. Simply wrap a tape measure around your dog's chest, right behind the front legs, leaving enough room to slip 3-4 fingers underneath. This makes it secure enough while still leaving it comfortable.
Measuring for coats, sweater and clothing requires a measurement that starts from the base of your dog's neck, down the back to where the tail starts. We try to provide sizing in inches that conform to this measurement.
