A COAT DESIGNED AND TAILORED TO FIT YOUR DACHSHUND PERFECTLY!

USEFUL WHEN MEASURING:

 

  • Measure your dachshund when it's standing on all four feet, do not measure when he or she is sitting or lying down.
  • The drawing on the left serves as a reference during measurement.
  • Use a flexible measuring tape (with centimeter indication!).
  • Do not pull the measuring tape too tight, your dachshund should be able to move comfortably in the coat.
  • Write down all sizes in the form below and double check these sizes carefully.
  • Wiggly or impatiant dachshund? Measuring with two people could be helpful; one holds a treat in front of the dachshund while the other takes the measurements.
  • Don't forget to reward your dachshund with a treat afterwards! :-)

CHARMING COUTURE'S TAILORED DACHSHUND COATS

 

The following steps explain how you can best measure your dachshund. Use the drawing above as a reference.

 

  1. First of all, the back length: this is measured from between the shoulder blades (two nodules can be felt) to a centimeter before the base of the tail, so that the dog can also sit easily in the jacket, wag the tail and walk freely.
  2. Then the chest size: measured directly behind the front legs.
  3. Measure the neck size where the collar would normally be.
  4. After that you measure the length of the fore chest: from where the collar would sit, measure the length from the fore chest to the armpit. The measuring tape for this size goes down vertically from the collar across the center of the fore chest until you imaginairy reach the armpit.
  5. Finally, it is useful to know whether the coat will be made for a male or female, so that the male cannot accidentally urinate in the coat when walking. For the males the blue line in the drawing is important, for this start measuring from the nodules of the shoulder blades, straight across the back to where the penis would sit.
