This is a question we are often asked, so we have created this infographic to help you.
Things you will need when measuring your hound:
There are 4 main measurements that you will need in order to decide what size is best to order:
Remember - it doesn't matter if your dog is a centimetre or two different to the chart, it is just a guide - the fleece jumpers are stretchy and forgiving, and the coats need are better with a bit of room in. The weight is often a better indicator of size.
If ordering a fleece jumper for your hound don't be tempted to go for the large to get a longer length if the chest is a medium - the large will be too baggy and long in the shoulder and could rub your dogs front legs. They are designed to be a snug fit to keep the wind out and avoid soiling when boy dogs pee! AND they are designed to fall short of the top of the tail around 10cms (4").
The Smedium size only applies to our fleece jumpers. It is the same as the medium but has a smaller chest and shoulder measurement making it perfect for petite adult ladies such as Winnie.
