Things you will need when measuring your hound:
There are 2 measurements you need in order to decide what Redhound size is best to order:
LENGTH — This is easier with two people! With your whippet standing, head up – bribe with a treat – place the tape measure on the neck, where the collar sits and measure all along the spine to where the tail begins.
CHEST — Measure all around the body, behind the front legs where the chest is deepest.
It’s not essential, but it’s useful to know the weight of your whippet. Refer back to our Size Chart to confirm sizing.
