How do I measure my dog??
**NOT ALL DOG COLLARS ARE SIZED EQUALLY!**
For instance, One designer may have a collar they call a 14 which is listed:
If you do not have a flexible tape, a ruler or a yard stick will do. You can use your dog's existing collar to find out their neck size. Please measure your dogs existing collar from the buckle to the hole that your dog uses. This is their actual neck size.
Sizing Dog Clothes
**NOT ALL DOG CLOTHING IS CREATED EQUALLY!**
Please buy our clothing according to your dog's measurements, not the clothing size.
In order to find the right size of clothing for your dog, please complete the following measurements with a measuring tape;
1. "Chest" Size of your dogs chest, all the way round, directly behind the front legs and around the back. It is our opinion that this is normally the most important measurement for clothing. If it is too small, it will not fit, if it is too big, your little one will get caught in it and not walk comfortably.
2. "Back" Length from the base of the neck to the base of the tail. This is the most common measurement for clothing, however the back length will not matter if the chest measurement is not appropriate, use this more as a guide to how low your shirt or dress will be on your baby's back.
3. "Neck" a comfortable distance around your dog’s neck. This size should always be measured when sizing for a collar.
If a clothing chart exists on the same page as your item, please refer to that chart.
If measurements fall between two sizes, please select the larger size.
Still not sure about which size is the best for your dog? Here are some tips that we've included for you.
I have a small dog. Shouldn't I be buying clothing in small?
Most of our clothing is specifically made for small dogs, so some of our larges are the size of the "small" dog clothing you would usually see at a retail store. Generally a small in many of our collections could be worn by a tiny dog weighing only 2.5 pounds!
Can I call you and have you help me pick out the right size?
YES! we encourage you to give us a call and let us walk you through finding the perfect size!
Can I figure out my dog's size by its weight?
There are so many different kinds of dog breeds that it is hard to determine what size your dog would be with only their weight. Weight charts are provided for some of our clothing lines, but these are to be used loosely only as a general guide.
Gifts for other dogs
Buying gifts for other people’s pets can be a tricky subject. GlamourDog highly recommends that you give us a call and let us help you pick out the right size for your gift. If at all possible, please try to find out what breed the dog is, and whether the dog is small, normal, or large for that particular breed.
