Have someone help you so that pet can be assisted into a standing position for taking measurements. Measurements are most accurate when pet is in a normal stance bearing partial weight. Pet must be assisted into a standing position for accurate measurements. If using a soft measuring tape be sure to hold it taut when taking height, length and width measurements. For #6 and #7 place two objects (like yardsticks, rulers, broom handle etc) on either side of the body at hips (shoulders) so that the object is touching pet and floor and is straight up and down, have someone measure the distance between objects in a straight line. Do not increase this measurement as its important to be accurate for a great fit.
Use straight lines, except for #4, 5, 8 and 9- these should be taken snugly like how you would measure your own waist. #4 is basically the "bust"; #8 is the "waist". We will call you if any measurements need to be retaken.
Taking your pets measurements is easy, simply follow the following steps.
1, 2, 3, 6, 7 & 10 are measured in a straight line; 4, 5, 8 & 9 are measured around a body part in a complete circle.
