How to measure the dog back length and drop for a magnetic dog coat.
You need to take two measurements. One from the shoulder blades down to the base of the tail which determines the back length, and the second measurement is the drop from the centre of your dog’s back down to the top of your dog’s leg.
Please do not measure from your dog’s collar of neck for the back measurement as this will be too long. Please see the diagram below for further information on where to take these measurements.
Here is a list of breeds as a guideline only. We strongly recommend you measure your dog but the table below will give you an idea of the size of coat that will fit.
