How to size/measure your pet?
There are 3 measurements that need to be taken when sizing for dog clothes:
*The Chest Measurement* – using a tape measure or string, measure the chest at its broadest point (this is usually directly behind the front legs).
*The Neck Size* – measure the circumference of your pet’s neck as you would for a collar. Ensure that this is not too tight (you should be able to get two fingers behind the measuring tape) before noting the measurement.
*The Body Length* – Measure from the base of your pet’s head (where the collar normally sits) along the backbone to the base of the tail (the point where the tail begins).
*Leg Length* – Measure from the point where the collar usually sits, straight down to the paws. (Although this measurement is not as important as the others, it will give an indication of how far down garments, such as hoodies, will fall on the legs).
Please note that it is not advisable to buy dog clothing based on breed or weight, I therefore recommend that you measure your pet correctly to ensure an accurate fit. Also please see sizing charts for the different brands of clothing & accessories or contact me to discuss your requirements.
Can something be custom-made or personalised?
At the moment the following items can be personalised.
Do you engrave your Pet ID Tags?
All my Dog and Cat ID Tags are durable and long lasting, available in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes. As with all Pet ID tags if swimming with them on they will wear down quicker. I engrave all my tags using a diamond drag as this I feel gives the nicest finish.
You can see my full range of Pet ID Tags here Engraved Pet ID Tags.
Note: Your text will be engraved in UPPERCASE. The more information you require the smaller the text will have to be to fit all the information on the back of the tags.
Dogs must at all times wear a collar that bears the name and the address of the owner inscribed on it or on a plate, badge or disc. Failure to have identification on a dog can result in an on-the-spot fine issued by a dog warden. Failure to pay this fine within a specific period can result in prosecution by your local authority.
