Sizing guide for dog clothes and accessories.
Dog CLOTHES Sizing for perfect fit
Please choose our clothing according to your dog's measurements, not the clothing size. The items we carry are from various designers, so basic sizes should not be the sole basis for a purchase.
We highly suggest that you read all sizing information for each piece of clothing VERY carefully to ensure that you get the correct fit for your pooch, and avoid any costly return shipping fees. If you have any questions, please E-Mail us and we will be happy to help you pick out the perfect size.
In order to find out the right size of clothing that will fit your dog you need to take accurate measurements.
Please make sure your dog is standing, and use measuring tape as follows:
A - Measure pet's back length from the base
the neck to the base of the tail.
B - Measure neck circumference
C - Measure the broadest part of the chest
***If the measurements are between sizes, or your pet has a stout build, deep chest, or is overweight, going up one size is recommended.>
*** Specific size chart for each item displayed on its page
Choosing well - PET CARRIER
Before pet carrier measure your pets length, height and weight then search our detailed pages for the proper dog carrier cat carrier. If you are not sure about the size, choose the bigger one.

Choosing right - COLLAR and HARNESS
We recommend you measure your pet precisely to ensure an accurate fit. If your pet's measurements fall between two sizes, we suggest ordering the next larger size.
Collars: Measure behind your pet's neck and allow two fingers between your dog's neck and the measuring tape to ensure a comfortable fit.
Harnesses: Measure behind your pet's front legs and wrap completely around the chest - this will give you the "girth".

Fitting SHOES / BOOTIES
Measure the dog's paw from back to front, while the dog is standing so that she or he has their weight on the paw. If you are unsure of the size, always go for the larger size

CrateWear (only) Size:
Our crate bedding has been designed to fit the majority of crates made by Midwest, Precision, Four Paws and others. Our dog crate beds are available in the 6 most popular crate sizes.
Our Size Guide is as follows: (XS) 19", (S) 24", (M) 30", (L) 36", (XL) 42" & (XXL) 48". This measurement is the length of the crate which is the longest side. Unfortunately there are no standard sizes for dog crates, the width and height of crates vary in every collection from every manufacturer. Our unique pattern accommodates the small variances in size.
To determine the correct Cratewear size for your dog crate bed, simply measure the length from front to back and your crate size.

The correct PET BED size
Measure Body length: when your pet is lying down measure body length, then add 8 inches. The total is the width your pet will need for an oval bed, and the depth your pet will need for a rectangular bed. If the bed has a bolster or other raised exterior, you'll need to consider the outer dimensions not the external ones. If you stuck between two sizes, go for the larger one.
