How to take the perfect measurement to ensure that our MALUCCHI collars and harnesses can be worn perfectly by your best friend?
To choose the right product for your dog, you will need a soft tailor's tape measure following the instructions in the image. The measurement should be taken carefully and with your dog standing on all four legs. After identifying the center of the neck, measure the circumference leaving room for two fingers to pass between the neck and the tape measure.
SIZE GUIDE – COLLARS
Start by measuring the circumference of your dog's neck, which is the widest part of the dog's neck. Place the tailor's tape measure around your dog's neck, just below the ears.
Add approximately 2.5 cm to the neck circumference measurement to determine the length of the collar. This way, the collar will be wide enough to be comfortable for the dog, but not so loose as to allow the dog to escape from the collar.
SIZE GUIDE – HARNESS
To take measurements for a dog harness, you will need a tailor's tape measure or a measuring tape.
First, measure the circumference of the dog's chest. This measurement represents the circumference of the dog's body immediately behind the front legs and behind the shoulders. Place the tailor's tape measure around the dog's body immediately behind the front legs, where the harness will be worn.
Next, measure the length of the dog's chest. This measurement represents the distance from the neck to the base of the front legs. Place the tailor's tape measure at the base of the dog's shoulders and measure from the center of one shoulder to the center of the other.
The measurements you obtain will help you determine the appropriate size harness for your dog.
