All measurements should be taken with the measuring tape against the body. Remember, you want the best fit possible. Our gear is designed to lie against the countours of the body - your measurements should be taken the same way.
1. Barrel - around the ribcage at the deepest part of the dog's chest, behind the front shoulders.
2. Between the Front Legs - most dogs need a 2-3 inch width unless it is a special case.
