Taking measurements:

  • When taking measurements, the dog should be standing upright on a horizontal surface (on a floor or table). Head and neck should be in upright position, the spine straight. Front paws parallel each the other and perpendicular to the floor.
  • Measurement №15 “Width of hind paws seated” is measured when the dog is sitting.
  • It is advised to take into account the thickness of the dog's fur. Do not tighten the measuring rope too much if measuring a fluffy pet.
  • Please indicate any other specifics the dog may have i.e. color, the tail's curve/form (upright or slanted).

Shoe sizing for dogs

How to correctly choose your dog's shoe size:

  1. Place the dog's paw on a sheet of paper and outline the contour around the paw.
  2. Measure the distance between the back part of the heel and the tip of the longest paw claw.
  3. Using the given table find the closest definition.
  4. If the measured distance is in between two size definitions in the table we advise to go one size up.
