Measuring guide for our Fleece-, Winter- and Raincoats

For our rain-, fleece- and winter coats you only need to measure your dogs’ spine length. 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.

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. If your dog had a back length of 38cm, order coat 38cm. This means 38cm is NOT the total length of the coat, but the coat is suitable for a 38cm dog.

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.

Muzzle measuring guide

In case you don’t own a Greyhound or Whippet but still would like to know if the muzzle would fit your dog, please read the measuring guide below. Our Greyhound muzzles are popular with non-Greyhound breeds like Shepherds, Dobermanns, Weimaraners and Vizslas.
Nose length = blue line: measure from the tip of the nose to the middle between the ears. Head size = orange line: measure from under the ear to the other ear. Muzzle diameter = yellow line: measure around the muzzle, just before the eyes.
The Lurcher sized muzzle is almost identical to the Greyhound size muzzle, except the muzzle diameter is smaller (up to approximately 25cm/10″, yellow line).
