How to measure your dog

Hello! To order your canine sweater, please make sure your measure your dog ahead of time. These sizes are based on Vizsla sizes but do not assume a certain size as there will not be full refunds on mis-measurements.

Your dog must be standing in the position in the photo, you might find it easier to have another person help and use a soft measuring tape, or a string. Do not measure while your dog is sitting or leaning down or you will have incorrect sizing. Do not let someone else measure your dog, if you have a question about measurement please take a photo and contact me. If your dog is very young, I suggest waiting until it is fully grown before ordering. Do not add extra inches to the measurement or let your dog move or change his position or you will not have accurate measurements. 

Your dog may fit slightly under the measurements (ie neck) but not larger otherwise the sweater will not stretch enough. The chest and length are most important to fit perfectly, your dog must fit under the rest of the 2 measurements. First, go by CHEST measurements, the length is not as important as chest!

  • Back length- from the base of neck, to base of tail
  • Chest Girth-measured at widest part
  • Abdominal girth- most narrow part
  • Neck Circumference- base of neck
Small Medium  Large X-Large
Back Length 19 inches 20 22 23
Chest Girth 24.4-28.3inches 25.9-29.5 27.5-30.7 30-32.5
Abdominal girth 17.7-20.4inches 19.6-22 20.4-23 21-24.5
Neck Circumference 17.3-19 inches 18.5-19.6 19.6-21 20-22.5


Sizing- you must measure your dog. Do not go by your dog's weight or what you think they may be comparable to as my ability to accept returns is very limited and if the sweater is worn (has dog hair or looks worn) it cannot be returned for a resell. Also if stock is sold, I cannot exchange even an unworn sweater for another size if they are sold out.

If your dog is outside these measurements, you can always order a custom sweater directly from the manufacturer in Russia but order times can be long, and communication may be slower.
