You want to measure the circumference of your dog's neck. Remember, you DO NOT want your dogs neck measurement to be exactly or bigger than the neck size above. This measurement is for the attached snood which you want to be loose fitting, unlike when you are shopping for a collar
- Great Dane has a 25" neck and wears a XL-Large coat and the 28" fits perfectly.
- St. Bernard has a 23" neck and wears a L-Large coat and the 28" also fits her perfectly.
You want to start at the base of their neck and measure down to the base of their tail. For the best fit, you want to account for an extra inch or two.
Do not measure the circumference of your dog's body/chest. For the chest measurement, you'll want to measure from their spine between their shoulder blades and measure down from there. You want to make sure it isn't too long or if you have a short dog, touch the floor.
