Determine the correct size
Why measure before you order?
To avoid disappointment, it is definitely advisable to always measure your dog before placing an order. After all, each dog is different. It is also important because you want to not only to buy a beautiful collar, but the dog collar should also fit well. All collars are available in many sizes, so, before you order, you just need to measure. To order the wrong size brings disappointment and additional costs for extra shipping, packaging and the like.
Each manufacturer has its own sizing, so you can not assume that, for example, the size M of one brand is the same as a size M from another brand! The measurement can be best done with a flexible tape measure, if you can not do that, you take a piece of string that you use the same way as the tape measure. Then place the rope on a table and measure the string with a ruler.

How do I determine the size for a collar?
To measure your dog for the right size collar: please use a flexible tape-measure and measure the dog's neck at the widest point near the shoulders. It is important that the collar is tight yet comfortable, you should be able to add two fingers between the collar and your dog's neck. The collars are measured from the first hole to the last hole. This is the neck size for which the collar is suitable. An example: neck circumference 27-35 cm means that 27 cm is the smallest position and measire to the first hole and 35 cm is the largest position and is measured to the last hole.
Example: you measure a neck size of 30 cm. A collar with size 27-35 would fit perfectly.
How do I determine the size of a dog jacket?
Take a flexible tape measure and thus measure the back length of the dog, from the end of the neck (between the shoulder blades) to the beginning of the tail. Measure the chest size at the widest point of the chest, just behind the front legs. For the jacket to sit comfortably add an additional 2 cm (two fingers). If the size of your dog falls between two sizes, then it is best to order the larger size so the jacket will not be too tight.

What size dog bed, dog cushion or dog bed do I need ?
Every manufacturer and every brand that produces dog beds, dog pillows, dog cushions and / or dog baskets, uses its own sizing charts. So there is no single standard sizing chart. This means that you must pay close attention to what size you order. Size XS from one manufacturer can be a different size than the size XS from another manufacturer.
For the record: sizes such as XS, S, M, L and the like say nothing about the actual size of the product! It is only an indication in order to keep the different sizes from each other.
In the comprehensive text on our website is always a sizing chart, you can find it at the bottom of the text. The sizing charts give always Length x width x height (or thickness).
To determine the correct size, measure the dog from the snout to the tail so that you come to the correct size for the dog bed or size of the dog pillow.
An example: your dog is 80 cm long, order a bed with an inner diameter of minimum 80 cm length, or a dog pad 80cm long. This allows the dog will have plenty of room to stretch out.
In case of doubt, we recommend you take the larger size.
