When measuring your dog for new dog clothes or a dog coat, follow these guidelines:
* Measure your dog from the base of the collar to the spot where the tail joins the body.
* Make sure the dog is standing square, not sitting or slouching.
* Measure around the dog at the widest point, behind the front legs for the girth.
* Take the time to measure the dog; don't just guess at the size.
