LoveMyDog Coat Sizing

LoveMyDog ready-to-wear coats come in a large range of sizes so that you can get an excellent fit. You just need two measurements – length and torso.

They also offer additional sizing options for greyhounds and whippets too.

Hold the tape measure loosely, so that you can get two fingers underneath. If your dog measurement is an odd number round it down one size.

  1. Length: Measure from your dog’s neck to the base of their tail.
  2. Torso: Find the ribcage and wrap the tape measure around the widest part. Your final selection should correspond with your dog’s torso size.

Note: Dogs love a coat when it’s cold and wet, but please always dress your dog appropriately and do not let your pet overheat.
