Here are methods of measurement in details for dogs:
1. How to measure dog’s body length?
This is a measurement from the base of the dog’s tail to the top of the dog’s neck. To measure the length, put the fabric tape measure right at the base of the tail—where the tail joints the body—and then extend the tape measure to the base of the neck, or where the neck connects to the dog’s back, or the joint point where the neck can move. The tape should be cling to the skin even the dog’s back is curved. Read and record the numbers.
2. How to measure dog’s chest girth?
This is a way to measure the dog’s chest, the area from the top of the dog’s shoulder down around the ribs or the space behind the dog’s front legs, this is very important to find the right place. It’s better for dog standing when measuring, find the widest part between the dog’s shoulder and wrap the tape measure around the dog so the tape passes behind the dog’s forelegs. With the tape wrapped around the dog’s chest, read and record the numbers.
3. How to measure dog’s neck girth?
The neck girth is a measurement of the circumference of the dog’s neck, it’s also very important as some dogs’ neck is small but some are sturdy. Before to take the neck measurement, to find the right place is necessary, the point is when the joints connect the shoulder, where it’s the first place to move the head, wrap the tape around the dog’s neck. Read and record the numbers.
