How To Measure Your Pup Properly

When shopping for apparel and accessories for your pup, there are three important measurements that you will need to keep handy:

(1) Back (Top Line) Measurement
The first size you need to know is what is referred to as the Back Length, a/k/a Top Line Measurement.  This size is obtained simply by measuring along your dog's backbone- from the base of where their collar rests to where their tail rests.  Every designer is different, so you may also need to take your dog's girth (chest) measurement into account and not rely solely on the top line measurement.

(2) Neck Measurement
The second size you will need to be very familiar with is your dog's Neck Size.  To determine this size, measure around your dog's neck with a tape measure.  Obtain the exact size of their neck and then add just enough room that you think will be necessary for their comfort.

(3) Chest Measurement
The third size you will need to know is your dog's Chest Measurement, sometimes also called the Girth Size.  To accurately determine this size, measure your dog's chest at their widest point, which is typically just behind their front legs.  If your doggie has a larger girth (perhaps from enjoying too many treats!), you may want to choose one size larger in their top line measurement, so the garment will not be too snug around their belly.  Also, this size (chest) usually corresponds to what your dog's harness size will be.

Shopping at Upscale Pup is EASY!
Here at Upscale Pup, we have the privilege of working with many different designers so that we can offer you a wide selection of wonderful, unique products. However, each individual designer has their own unique set of sizes and measurements!  In order to avoid confusion, we have conveniently listed sizing information on each individual product page for your convenience. We have also listed sizing hints and guidelines, which are distinct for that particular product.

Our Sizing Information Is More Helpful To You!
Our personal online shopping experiences have taught us that many websites cause you to waste time by hunting for (and sometimes even guessing) the sizing information (or you just can't find it at all). Even worse, some dog boutiques have one size chart that is supposed to apply toward all of their products (each having different manufacturers), causing you to wonder how you will ever determine a correct size! Well, this silly "method" is way too much trouble, in our opinion.  We hope that we have devised a better, more convenient and user-friendly way for you to choose the right size.  For each product that requires you to choose a size or provide a measurement with your order, we have listed a size chart, a measurement diagram (if needed) and specific sizing hints (distinct for that particular product). We want your shopping experience to be fun and easy!  

Of course, if you still have questions or need any help with choosing a size (or just have individual product questions), please do not hesitate to Contact Us. If you prefer, you may call our toll free order/help line: 1-866-PET-TAIL (1-866-738-8245)
