This is custom couture...not in-stock pre-made garments. Your
coat, hood, leggings or collar will be made using the measurements you provide.
"I'm not really very good at measuring" isn't a disclaimer. If you're
having difficulty, please feel free to call me if you require any assistance :-)
ultimately responsible for measuring your dog properly.
The How To's
Measuring your dog can seem a bit daunting, but
it is actually very simple. The
pictures below will help you to see the
measurements I require for various Posh Pawz pieces.
Please do not add any
extra to your measurements.I require the dog's exact body
Run your measuring
tape along your dog's body smoothly but not tightly, take your time and be as
exacting as possible...and as always, if anything
is unclear, please ask me for help.
