Please make all measurements in INCHES
Please take your measurements two or three times to be sure that you are coming up with the same results.
These are the measurements we need
1 - Measure from the base of the neck, between the shoulder blades down the spine to the base of the tail.
2 - Around the circumference of the lower neck.
3 - Around the circumference of the chest.
4 - Around the circumference of the abdomen.
1 Back Length
2 Neck Circumference
- Circumference of the base of the neck, at the widest point. Do not measure where the collar usually sits but further back towards the shoulders.
3 Chest Circumference
- Circumference of the chest at the deepest point. Make sure that you do not measure tight behind the front legs as this is not the deepest part. You need to measure about 50mm back and allow for your hound to breathe out before committing to a final result.
4 Waist Circumference
- Circumference of the waist or abdomen.
- Note: The waist measurement should be taken with a fairly slack tape measure to ensure that the fitted chest panel is not too tight at that end
At the end of the measuring process you should have four numbers in INCHES
1 Back, 2 Neck, 3 Chest and 4 Waist
