How To Measure your Dog for Clothes


If you want to make perfect fitting clothes for your dog, you will first have to do some measuring. Depending on the type of clothes you want to make, some measurements can be included or omitted. More advanced pieces of clothing, like these hand-knitted dog sweaters, will need a couple more measurements. Some dogs will be very cooperative during the measuring, while some others will not. Take your time and be sure that you measured everything correctly. Also, if you are measuring a male dog pay attention to the bottom length of the clothing piece! It's probably the best idea to stop somewhere in the middle, between front and hind legs, because you don't want the clothes to be peed on.
