How to Measure Your Dog Instructions
Use these instructions to measure your dog. On our website www.fairdinkumdogs.com.au, choose the style of coat, the length that is closest to your dog, fill in your dog's Girth and Neck measurement details and select the lining of your choice.
* If the back length you require is between sizes please mention this in comments section when placing order. 'eg. if you require a 43cm back please select 45cm but ask for a 43cm back in comments section when you place order. If 42cm back please select 40cm back but ask for a 42cm back in comments section when you place order. After placing your order i highly recommend you email a side on photo to firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not have the time to do this i also find it helpful when the breed and gender of the dog is mentioned in comments. Thank you for
* Greyhounds and Whippets need to be measured differently, please go to greyhound / whippet coat to find instructions. Any other breed please follow the below instructions:
When measuring your dog, your tape measure should be flush with the skin to give the correct measurements of your dog. When we make the coat belt, the girth measurement is used to allow for your dog's weight to alter, if necessary.
