I have been reading all these postings and think I know how to measure. Linda, did you add a little or measure a little extra for around and down his body? I like the way it fits him not too tight. Does he seem to mind it being hooked under his tail?
Do you have any (or anyone) have any with the legs? Which do you like better?
Thanks! I agree, he looks so smart in his sweaters and prefers to be warm rather than cold. I can always tell if he is cold, as he curls up and his nose is like ice. Freddie hardly ever wears sweaters, because he runs on the warm side and his nose is always warmer than Scuds and Bella's.
I stood him up with his head slightly up and in a show dog stance, legs slightly back. I held the tape measure right up to wear the head joins the neck. Then I held his tail back a little, and measured right to wear it joins. If you measure a few times, you are likely to get different measurements because of the way they stand or hold their head. Go with the longest measurement. For the chest and neck I didn't add, but I did not squeeze the tape. I just went around gently and gave her that measurement. Scud has a big head so I made sure I did not measure tightly. Keep in mind over time these sweaters do stretch in the neck and chest.
He doesn't even notice he is wearing a sweater. let alone the tail ring. You have to request that if you want that.
I do not like the legs at all. Anything with legs, mat my guys hair. I also think they look better without them.
If you order, please post pictures! I can't wait to get my 3 BRUNO sweaters. I got one in brown with pink stripes, black with light blue stripes and teal with light gray/silver stripes!!
When measuring just use your common sense. Think about wear the sweater will fall on the dog and make that be your measurement. I hope that makes sense. One more thing. Scudder has a large chest so I do measure his chest tighter, because I don't want the waist area to be too big.
Have fun shopping!
