How to Measure Dogs for the Custom Pet Support Suit Harness
All Custom Pet Support Suits are tailored with your dog in mind and built according to your measurements. Here’s how to get the perfect fit:
First review the image below to view general measurement instructions. The photo will open at a larger size in a new window.
Next, confirm your measurements by doing the following:
Wrap a towel or pillow case around your dog. It helps to have assistance.
Place the fabric just behind the front legs.
Fold it to just in front of the rear leg.
Be sure to accommodate for male/female anatomy and space to urinate without soiling the harness.
Measure the folded towel to get the fabric length from front to back.
Write down the measurements and include in your order.
We hope this helps you feel confident about the size of your dog’s suit. Remember, measure carefully since there are no refunds for this custom dog harness. The manufacturer will work with customers if measurements are slightly off, but for your dog’s sake and your sanity it pays to get good measurements the first time around.
