Sizing Information

Our sizing system is essentially a small spin on an existing measurement system that is widely used by most dog apparel companies. Our sizes include a toy size, an extra small, small, medium, large and extra large, except we’ve decided to name each size after a dog that is particularly important to us here at Muffinhead.

For that reason, our sizes are named the following:

Toy (aka “Oreo”):
Neck=
Chest=12″-14.5″
Length (back of neck to base of tail)=11″

XS-Petite (aka “Edina”):
Neck=14″-17″
Chest=”
Length (back of neck to base of tail)=12″

XS (aka “Gunter”):
Neck=14″-17″
Chest=21″-25″
Length (back of neck to base of tail)=12″

Small (aka “Chelsea”):
Neck=19″-22″
Chest=22″-26.5″
Length (back of neck to base of tail)=15″

Medium (aka “Brimo”):
Neck=20″-27″
Chest=28″-35″
Length (back of neck to base of tail)=20″

Large (aka “Baxter”):
Neck=20″-28″

Measuring your muffinhead

Chest

Measure the chest at its broadest point (usually 1″-2″ behind the front legs). The chest measurement must be a good fit, so it’s important to be precise. Fabric measuring tape is a good tool to use for this. If you don’t have fabric measuring tape, try a piece of yarn or string and measure it against a ruler to get the chest measurement.

Length

Measure your dog from the base of the back of the neck to base of the tail. Since dogs come in all shapes and sizes, fit will vary greatly for each dog. It’s normal for your bigger dog’s coat to be up to 7″ shorter than its actual length.

Neck

Measure the circumference of your dog’s neck at the base of the neck. As mentioned before, fabric measuring tape is a good tool to use for this. If you don’t have fabric measuring tape, try a piece of yarn or string and measure it against a ruler to get the chest measurement.
