Measuring guide for Blizzard coats

Measure your dog from the base of the neck to the beginning of the tail. Make sure your dog is standing up. On top of your dogs spine/shoulders you will be feel a hollow with your fingers. Once found, use a flexible tape to measure from the top of the spine to the beginning of the tail as shown in the picture below. The that’s the size you need to order a coat. If your dog is size 53cm, order coat 53cm. This means 53cm is NOT the total length of the coat, but the coat is suitable for a 53cm dog. If your dog is in between sizes, choose the nearest size.
Example: if your dog measures 62cm, choose 61cm. If your dog is 65cm, choose 66cm.
Please note that coats in sizes 48cm, 53cm and 58cm (19, 21 and 23 inches) are most suitable for Whippets. Whippets have a arched back, so these coats are specially made for Whippets. Coats in the sizes 61cm, 66cm, 71cm and 76 cm (24, 26, 28 and 30 inches) are most suitable for Lurchers and Greyhounds. These coats are made with a flatter back for a perfect fit.
Coats in the sizes 33 and 38 cm (13 and 15 inches) are made for puppies or Italian Greyhounds.

How to measure a leather buckle collar?

The size of our collars are measured from the buckle to the first and last hole. If you have a used leather collar that fits, you can measure that collar and get the same size. Or measure the circumference of your dogs neck and then add 2 or 3 centimeters, as you don’t want the collar to be too tight.
Example: if your dog has a circumference of 36 cm, order a collar that is at least 38cm.

How to measure a martingale collar

To measure your dog for a martingale collar you have to use a soft tape measure (or a piece of string). Measure the neck size (B). Because the collar needs to slip over the head, you also have to measure the widest point of it’s head (A). Choose the size that fits within this range to make sure that your collar fits.
