are urged to use this guide for understanding how to take pet
measurements. As we carry a large variety of brand names and
products, our products have an individual size chart or other reference
guide in the product description when more than one option is
available. The illustration below will show you how to
accurately measure for a length, neck and chest measurement.
Please note that it is not recommended to determine size
based on your pet's breed, weight, brand, or previous purchases you may
have made at our pet boutique or anywhere else. Each and
every designer uses different cuts and sizing patterns.
refer to the individual size chart that is shown in each product's
description before making your size selection.
a general rule of thumb for selecting dog clothing sizes, the most
important measurements are chest girth and the length. The
chest girth is usually the widest and thickest part of the chest
measured from the back to underneath the arms. If the
clothing is too tight, your dog may get hot and
uncomfortable. The length for products like jackets and coats
is typically designed to be close to the base of your pet's
tail. While other products like t-shirts, tanks, and dresses
should be within 2 to 4 inches from the base of the tail.
Please refer to any additional information that is contained
in the product description to help you determine the best size for your
various types of measurements are provided in the product description,
please take into account the length measurement first. This
is especially important to certain breeds that have longer bodies like
your pet's measurements fall in between two sizes, we suggest ordering
the next larger size just to be safe.
dog shoes and booties, please refer to individual sizing guides in
product descriptions. Download and print out on paper and fit
your dog's paw on to the appropriate size.
When putting shoes on for your dog, please make sure that
the entire paw is pushed into the shoe (check by feeling bottom of
booties) and tongue of the shoe is not twisted before zipping it
up. This allows for maximum comfort. The shoe zipper has to
be fully zipped and the velcro should be securely fastened around
ankles for proper usage.
that if your dog has not worn shoes before, it may take some time to
get use to. We suggest wearing the shoes for about an hour
every day for a week to help your dog break into the new
booties. Your dog may walk funny or stand or sit
still. Encourage them to move around and feel more
comfortable with wearing shoes. Your
dog should always be supervised and should not be left unattended when
wearing shoes. Please do not put shoes on your dog when paws
and ankles are wet or injured or have any other medial
conditions. Do not leave shoes on your dog for long
periods of time (more than 5 hours) as the heat may cause discomfort
and irritation to your dog.
note that wear and use of canine apparel, including shoes or booties,
should always be supervised. Do
not leave your pet unattended. The
Canine Sizing Guide is a reference of recommendations meant to help you
measure your pet. Read
through it carefully to help your dog find the appropriate size. Canine shoes and booties are
designed for cleanliness and novelty purposes only.
They are not designed or intended to be used for any
medical purpose, rugged or slippery conditions, or any other extreme
outdoors use (including mountainous surfaces).
For pets with injured paws and/or ankles, please consult
your veterinarian prior to wearing or use of shoes or booties.
