Struggling to find the right size for your dog’s clothes? Here’s a how to-guide for you!
When you shop dog clothes with us, it is important to measure the dog correctly to avoid having to change or return the item. Read the full text carefully!
At most clothes you will find a measuring table that indicates the dimensions of the garment (note not the dog). The table is located in the picture gallery of the product. Most garments are longer than the back length to cover well over the thighs. The length of the back and breast scope are the main targets for setting the size. The red number in the table (usually goal A) indicates the length of your dog’s back. This is measured from the widths/shoulders and up to the tail fixing. So, from where the throat goes to the back and up to where the tail starts.
Furthermore, you measure the breast magnitude on the deepest and compare with the numbers in the table. Again, remember that the goal in the table is the goal of the garment. The blue dimensions of the table are there to give you information about the goal of the garment so that you can see if it will fit. Breeds with large heads/wide necks should compare if the head comes through the neck opening.
Most often, your dog can use the same size for all garments. Some garments are slightly small/large in size, so you can find information about the product description. You don’t need a number larger in the winter/rainy season than in a sweater.
It is also not appropriate to choose one size larger just “to be sure that the dog is well covered”. The clothes are designed to cover the most important areas, and a large size will not make the garment warm enough due to a poor fit, and the rug will also slide under movements.
If you chose a size too small, it will slide up on the butt and curl up on the lenden. This is especially what you see during movement. Also notice how the garments sit on the dogs in the pictures in the store.
If your dog wears the tail upwards, look for the description as it is specified by each product. Such garments usually have a slit for the tail. Some models are specially made for such dogs. You will find your own collection “For those with JOYOUS” under the menu item collections to quickly find all the products suitable for the type of dog but note that the models have different shapes.
There is 5 cm difference in length and chest range between “main sizes” (e.g. between S2 and S3). On the garments where there are “half sizes” (e.g. S2/S3), these are in the middle of the main sizes. Thus, the S2/S3 2.5 cm is greater than S2 and 2.5 cm less than S3.
