Sizing & Measuring Guide

Many products vary in size between Brand Labels & manufacturers, who use their own size charts, which may lead to confusion as there is no universal sizing in the dog world. 

We highly recommend checking your dogs measurements with each style and brand, as sizes can vary from product to product.

This is vitally important to save buying wrong sized items for your fur babies. 

 

Neck Size

With a tape measure, gently encircle your dogs neck where the collar would sit.

Chest Size

Use the tape measure to gently encircle your dogs chest at it’s widest point, normally just behind the front legs.

Length

Measure the distance from your dogs neck where the collar sits to where the tail starts.


*************************************************

Collars

  • Using a seamstress tape or a piece of string, proceed to take a measurement of your dog’s neck 
  • Remember to allow 2 finger spaces, between the tape or string and the dog’s neck for movement to ensure a comfortable fit 
  • Measure the string with a ruler on a flat surface or note the measurement via the seamstress tape.

Harnesses

  • Using a seamstress tape or a piece of string, take a measurement of your dog’s girth (just behind the front legs) and their Neck. 
  • For neck and girth, please allow sufficient room to slip two fingers between the measure tap and the dog’s neck and girth. A snug fit is what you are aiming for and not a tight one or one that chokes.
  • Measure the string with a ruler on a flat surface or note the measurement via the seamstress tape.

Apparel

  •  Neck Size - With a tape measure, gently encircle your dogs neck where the collar would sit.
  • Chest Size - Use the tape measure to gently encircle your dogs chest at it’s widest point, just behind the elbows.
  • Length - Measure the distance from your dogs neck where the collar sits to where the tail starts.

 

Dog Goggles

As dogs come in various head shapes and sizes, it's important to measure your doggy across the face, from the outside of the eyes as this is where the padded lenses will sit on their face.

Next compare it to width of the Goggles before buying to ensure the best fit! 

 

Dog Hats

Socks & Shoes

Measure your dog's front paw to ensure a comfortable fit.

  1. Place the paw on a piece of paper and press down on the top, mimicking how the paw spreads when the dog's walking.
  2. Mark the left and the right side on the paper and measure the distance between the marks. Compare this to the feet width in the product description.

****************************************************************************************

Every dog is different in size and shape, so please make sure that you measure and double check the sizing of your fur-baby before making a size selection.

Please also note, Big & Little Dogs may be different to other brands that are on the market. Ensure that you double check the sizing of each harness.

We would recommend not assuming that you will be the same size as another brand.

Also note that each Harness Type does have a different sizing, so please ensure to check the size chart prior to purchasing, as your pup may be in a different size in each type of harness.

To find the best size check out the below sizing charts.
Please note that there are different sizing charts for the different products that we sell. 

If you're still not sure which would be the best fit, send us an email to sales@doggytopia.com.au with the following details and we will suggest the best fit for them:

1. Measure around the widest part of the base of the neck (the area where the collar would naturally sit)

2. Measure around the widest part of your dog's ribcage, just behind their front legs

3. Which products you would like sizing suggestions for

 

Here are a couple of tips for sizing:

  • For neck and chest, please allow sufficient room to slip two fingers between the measuring tape and the dog’s neck or chest. A snug fit is what you are aiming for - just make sure it is not too tight or chokes your pet.
  • Order the next size up if your dog falls between measurements.
