Continue reading below for our four tips on finding the right dog clothes that will perfectly fit your classy canine.
1. Consider the amount of fur they naturally have.
Is your dog short-haired like a Chihuahua, or long-haired like an Alaskan Malamute? Clothes will fit differently depending on the length and thickness of your puppy's fur! Always consider the breed of your dog before purchasing any dog clothing for them — after all, you can’t expect a size “medium” to fit both a Border Collie and a Labrador Retriever!
2. Make sure the clothing you choose comfortable.
You don’t want the dog clothes you choose for your pup to end up being too uncomfortably loose or tight. If the clothes you choose are too tight, your little fur baby won’t be able to move as freely as they’re used to. If the clothes you choose are too loose, they’ll be slipping and tripping all over the place.
3. Take proper measurements.
The only way to really know the proper size of clothing for your pup is to get your measuring tape out and to take their measurements! Most dog clothing manufacturers and makers provide customers with a sizing chart, as sizes do vary. Sizing charts are best to follow if you have no general idea on what size your fashionista good boy or good girl is.
Make sure you measure these main areas of your pup:
- Their neck
- The widest area of their chest
- The distance from their neck to their waist
4. Ask the manufacturer/person who made the clothes for help!
