There is currently no standard sizing for pet clothes. If you buy one size in one store, it does not mean that you will need the same size in another. Therefore, please ensure that you measure your pet correctly using the rough guide below. If you need any assistance regarding sizes, simply email TopDog@bowwowboutique.ie or call us and we will be very happy to help you.
With the introduction of an SM size in September 2011, any products made before that date may be sized differently. Please refer to the size measurements in the drop down menu for each product you wish to purchase.
Collar Size Measurement
For collar measurement, measure right around the neck. The collar should be snug enough to fit two fingers between it and your dog’s neck. Your furry friend’s comfort is very important.
Harness Size Measurement
For harness measurement, the most important measure is the chest measurement. You should measure right around the widest part of your dog’s chest to find the most comfy fit.
Measure around the neck of your pet as you would a collar allowing some room for a comfortable fit.
Measure from the base of your pet’s neck to the base of the tail.
Measure at the widest point of your pet’s chest ensuring you go all the way around(typically behind the front legs).
We stock many different brands in both collars and dog clothes/accessories, and no one brand has the same fit as another brand. Although there will be no major different in sizes, please take your lil friend’s measurements and refer to the drop down menu for each item you are interested in, where you will find more exact sizing for that particular product.
