How To Size
To measure your dog properly, use the guidelines below or our Perfect Sizer Tool!
We encourage you to use our measurement guide to be sure that you select the right size for your dog.
- Top Line – Measure from the middle of the shoulder blades along the back bone to the dock of the tail.
- Girth — Measure the distance around the girth from just behind the front legs.
Compare your dog’s measurements with those recommended by our Perfect Sizer below to determine the most appropriate size for your dog. If your dog’s measurements fit into more than one category, use the Top Line measurement alone to select the best size. If the K9 Top Coat you receive does not fit your dog, send it back to us within thirty days and we will gladly exchange it for you.
Adjustable Top Strap
To make adjustments, use our exclusive topline strap to shorten the length of your garment to perfectly fit your dog. The Top Strap Adjustment is a standard feature of all bodysuits: Lycra, Arctic Fleece, Waterproof & Basecoat.
Adjustable Neck Strap
Use our Velcro strap to adjust the neck of your garment to be comfortable, yet firm, for best fit. As long as you can get 2 fingers inside the neck, your dog will have the freedom to breathe and move without limitation. The adjustable neck strap is a feature of all our quality garments.
Modifications of the K9 Top Coat are easy. Our special design and superior materials and construction allow a wide variety of modification options. You simply need a pair of very sharp scissors, and your specific tailoring needs.
First, you can cut the garment without causing the material to roll or run. If you desire to finish the cut ends, you can, or you can leave them as is. The choice is yours.
Shortening the sleeve
You can make a short sleeve version easily by just trimming the sleeves to the desired length. We intentionally did not make a “short sleeve” version because there is such a wide definition of what ‘short sleeve’ is on a dog. So, make the sleeves any length you need.
