How To Measure Your Dog's Paws!
Proper footwear fit is essential to a fun day out (or in). Here's how to measure your pet's paws...
With your pet's paw on the ground, measure from the tip of the claws (those have to fit inside the shoe too) to the back of where the paw touches the ground, which is just behind the pad.
While your pet's paw is still on the ground, measure from side to side at the widest point of your pet's paw, which is usually near the base of the toes.
Handy Tip: Try having your pet step on a piece of paper, then trace around the paw. Then, while your pet is off eating your houseplants or terrorizing the neighborhood, you can measure the traced outline in peace.
How To Measure Your Dog!
I have worked with the finest furry tailors in the world, and am here to share my bounty of knowledge. Here's how to measure your pet...
Measure from the base of the tail (where it connects to the hindquarters) up to where the collar typically sits at the base of the neck, then follow up with a generous back scratch.
This is measured by giving your pet a
hug, during which you measure the entire circumference (all the way around) at the widest point of your pet's chest. This is typically right behind the front legs.
First, plenty of kisses. Then, measure the neck's circumference
(the distance around it) at the point where the collar sits.
Important Sizing Note: The given measurements are the dimensions of the actual product, not of the pet they fit. After measuring your pet, make sure all measurements fit within the following dimensions (with a little room to spare in the chest and neck).

I love these harnesses. This is one of 5 I've just bought. I have two other girls and a new puppy coming so I wanted all three to have matching harnesses. I wish this came in xxsmall but that's OK. My girl will grow into it and have one to match her big sisters until she can fit her medium. I got the xsmall. So cute and well made! Purple seems to be a real hard color to find. This is about a med. purple more lavender. Gorgeous! Love them! I will be back later for more colors!
So cute and Purple!

It's so hard to find purple in any of the vest harnesses and this one is a very cute one. I ordered five for the two girls I have and three for a new puppy I'm getting on the 29th of this month. I ordered her in between and full grown size to have it so all my three girls will have this super cute and so easy to put on harness. You will love it! Just ordered the matching leashes! I wish these were sold with the leashes as a combo. A little pricey buying for three and having to buy them separate.

My foster dog, a pug/chihuahua/?? mix is barrel chested, but has a smaller neck. This works, as I can make the neck a tad tighter, and let the chest be a tad looser to fit her body build. I like the double D-rings, which make it more secure, and aren't sitting high making her look like she has devil horns. I have to admit, the first time she shook, when I unhooked the leash, I swore I had a bunch of castanets in the house. The metal clicks on the plastic of the fasteners, but it was funny. She even stopped and looked at herself to see what the noise was. Easy to step in and step out, and fasten. I got it in purple, she is all black, and looks adorable. .
Another perfect harness

I bought this for my dog, a very spoiled maltese, in the purple since she has so much pink and it is just fabulous on her. These are so easy to get in and out of. It's perfect for any dog. I bought a matching one for my daughter's new rescued dog in the pink and both girls look lovely.
Looks so precious

I found this site when I was searching for dog sweaters. It was easy to shop. The measurement guide was very helpful. An agent helped me to determine the size, which I appreciated. I will be back.
