How to measure dog breed and size

ALPHAICON offers unique sizes for each product. In order to purchase a product with the correct size, please measure your dog's weight and body parts, and then select the size that suits your dog from the size chart listed on each product page. Please refer to the diagram below for how to measure each part. When taking measurements, it is more accurate to take the average of several measurements for each location.

How to measure each part necessary for size selection

Point 1
The required size (front length, sleeve length, etc.) varies depending on the product. Please measure the area listed in the size chart on the product page.

Point 2
It is easier to find by first determining your weight, neck circumference, and waist circumference, and then comparing the sizes before and after the size you are looking for.

Point 3
The size of each part and the characteristics of the material (stretchability, etc.) may vary depending on the product. The recommended size (fit/loose) will also change accordingly. For details, please check the information on each product page.

Point 4
The coverall-shaped product has a large ``U-shaped'' structure in which the tail protrudes, taking into account the drop in length during wear and individual differences in torso length. It depends on the size you are wearing, but it can be worn even if the length is 5 to 15 cm shorter. In that case, the actual product length will be shorter than your dog's measurements.

Precautions when using for water play <br>When using for water play, we recommend that the clothes be snug as there is a risk of an unexpected accident if the legs of the clothing come off in the water.
Please be sure to check the safety within the reach of the owner and keep an eye on your dog. Also, please be sure to wear a floating vest over your clothing and use a long leash for safety.
