Hold your measuring tape taut, but not tight. DO NOT ADD TO MEASUREMENTS!!!
I have a specific mathematical formula to determine a custom pattern for your dog. Don't have a measuring tape? Use a ribbon or string and hold it up to a ruler. Take all measurements twice to assure accuracy. Have another person hold your dog firmly on a table or counter for easier (and safer) measuring.
~Collar: Measure around the neck at the base where collar naturally sits
Do not go up behind the ears.
~Chest: Measure around the chest at the deepest, usually 1-2" behind the front legs.
~Body Length: Measure from BASE of neck where a collar naturally sits (not up around the ears) to exactly where the tail begins. This is VERY important for 4 legged jammies and suits!
~Height: Hold measuring tape on the floor and measure straight up to the top of the back at the front shoulder. DO NOT bend the tape around to the spine.
~Rear Inseam: From ankle to groin where leg meets the body on the INSIDE of the leg.
For SNOODS: measure the top of the head from the eyebrow to the neck base along the topline of the head.
For bellybands, measure around your male dog's anatomy. Hold tape taut but not tight. Our diapers have some built in wiggle-room with generous velcro.
For female Diva Pantz diapers I need 3 measurements. Waist, length and tail-hole placement. See the photo for specific instructions.
