How do I measure my pet for a harness?
Measure the animal's girth--approximately 1" behind the front legs and that will give you the harness measurement. A Pet's Collar and harness measurement generally do not coincide. E.G a dog that wears a size 10 collar could wear a size 14 Harness.

How do I measure my pet for a collar?
Measure your pet's neck and add 2" for the correct size. For example: If your pet's neck measures 8" you would buy a size 10 collar.

How can I measure my pet for the right size bed?
Measure your dogs full length when stretched out. Please keep in mind that your dog can always curl up in the corner of the bed, but a bed that is too small will not allow your dog to stretch out if he chooses to stretch!

What size carrier is best for my pet?
Please make sure to look at the dimensions of the carriers for the correct size for your dog. It is important that your dog is able to turn around in the carrier and have a little wiggle room. Measure your dog and compare the dimensions to the dimensions of the carrier. If you are looking for an airline approved dog carrier, please contact your individual airline or you may always contact us for additional assistance!

How do I measure my pet for clothes?
General Measurement Guide: Length: The length of your dogs back from her neck to the base of her tail. Chest: Measure around your dogs chest at the widest point for the best fit. Neck: The neck is measured at the thickest point of the neck, which is right above your dogs shoulder. Weight: Given as a general guide, but please check the dimensions as they are the best indicator of size. If your dog is between sizes or still growing, please go up to the next size. The majority of returned items are due to owners getting an item that is too small for their dog!
