How the K9 Cool Coat Fits: The Cool Coat goes over the dog's head and buckles in front of the chest. It has a removable, adjustable belly band that is secured around your dog's girth with Velcro attachments.
How to Measure Your Dog: K9 Cool Coats are ordered by back length measurement. Be sure that your dog is standing squarely, with head up, and is looking straight ahead. Following the contour of the dog's back closely, measure from the base of his neck (the point where the neck joins the body) to the base of his tail (the point where the tail joins the body). Round up or down to the next even number of inches, taking tail carriage into consideration—for dogs with very high tail carriage, choose the next smaller size. If you are uncertain, call or email us for assistance.
Most dogs fit in the coat with a standard belly band. If, however, you have a dog with a very deep or a very narrow chest, then we also suggest measuring his girth so that we can give you a custom belly band for the coat. To do this, measure around the dog’s rib cage directly behind his front legs and over the withers. If the dog's girth measurement is larger than what's indicated in the chart below for his correct Cool Coat size, then please enter his girth size when you order this item. We will send you a belly band based on that information.
If you are still uncertain of what size you should purchase, please call or email us for assistance.
