Many people don’t know how to measure a Pug or any dog in fact when sizing for clothing, e.g. harnesses and coats.

Please see below for an accurate way to measure your Pug for good fitment of clothing.

Neck

  • The Neck is measured at the place where your dogs collar would naturally rest, from the top of the chest to just above the withers. Measured all the way around.

Girth

  • The Girth is measured all the way around the biggest part of your dogs ribcage, general just behind the withers and behind the front legs. Measured all the way around.

Length (Topline)

  • The Length or Topline is measured from the highest part of the back between the shoulders where the neck joins the body to the base of the tail.

Waist

  • The waist is measured around the dog just behind the last rib, up and around the body. Measured all the way around.
