Did you know?
Each of the items we sell at The Stylish Bisou is made specific to your dog’s measurements.
Upon receipt of your Etsy purchase, we will email you what measurements we need; please respond with measurements ASAP!
Feel free to use the guide below to measure your pup. PLEASE ALWAYS MEASURE CAREFULLY AND MAKE SURE YOUR PUP IS STANDING ON ALL FOUR LEGS FOR ALL MEASUREMENTS.
We always need the following measurements:
Neck Circumference— Not necessarily at the “squishiest” part of the neck, but where a collar would sit. Typical sizes for medium dogs are 16-20 inches.
Chest Girth— Please make sure you measure your dog while he/she is standing on all four legs and measure with a soft tape all the way around the chest, directly under the armpits. Typical chest size for a medium size dog is 20-27 inches.
Length— Again, it’s so important that this measurement is made while your dog is standing on all four legs. We need the measurement from the neck to the crest of their butt where their tail starts. Typical length ranges from 12-16 inches.
Do you need a harness hole? Sadly, not every harness is made the same; each brand has a D-ring that clips to the leash at a different length on your dog’s back. If you’d like a harness hole sewn into the shirt, please measure how far down your pup’s harness D-ring sits on their back. Typical harness lengths vary from 3 inches down the back to 5.5 inches.
We may also ask for the following:
Arm length— measured from the shoulder to wrist. This is important for boy’s jackets.
Back size— Measured from shoulder to shoulder, across the dog’s back. We will sometimes ask for this if we feel that the dog has a stocky build.
Weight— We ask for weight just as a reference to ensure that the measurements sound balanced.
Head Measurement— Head measurements are used for floral crown and head-bow requests. This measurement should be taken around the dog’s face, starting under the chin and resting on the forehead, directly in front of the ears.
We hope this helps, but if you have further questions or comments, feel free to contact us any time!
