      It is best to buy clothes for your pet after trying it on - this way, you can make sure that the size is correct, and the dog is comfortable. If this is not possible (for example, you order clothes over the Internet), you should measure the basic parameters of the dog:

      • Back length. This is the most important parameter in determining the correct size. Stand the dog straight and measure the distance from the withers to the beginning of the tail - this is the desired value.

      • Neck circumference. Measured at the widest part of the animal's neck.

      • Bust and waist. The ribcage is measured at its widest part. The waist circumference is the narrowest part of your pet's belly. To make the dog feel comfortable in the clothes, add about 5-7 cm to the resulting values. If the pet has long hair, about 10 cm, depending on its length.

      • The length of the legs. Measured from chest and abdomen to wrist.
