There is a definite nip in the air, and while we pile on the woolly jumpers, wellies and waterproofs perhaps it’s time to offer your dog another layer? Although our furry friends are well insulated, as the weather conditions change it can necessary to offer them some additional protection for their coat! Especially curly and long-haired coats it can be especially hard to clean all the mud off without it getting matted, and coats can also protect your doggy from that damp wet smell they often get after long, wet and muddy walks.

To get the best measurement, we recommend measuring your dog from the back of the neck to the base of the tail, along the spine.dog_coat
Here’s how:
1.   Make sure your dog is standing squarely upright on all four legs and Is looking straight ahead for a more precise measurement
2.  Take a tape measure and run it from the base of your dog’s neck to the base of their tail. This is the measurement you will most commonly need
3.  Make a note of that measurement in both inches and centimetres
4.  Refer to this measurement when you’re looking at the sizing of different brands and styles on
