Dachshund Measuring Guide
Measurements are needed for all coat orders. After measuring your Dachshund, use your dog's measurements to select the best coat size from our standard Dachshund sizes. Our Dachshund coats are tailored to the unique body of a Dachshund, and are not intended to fit another breed.
MEASURE YOUR DACHSHUND
You will need your Dachshund's weight, length, and chest circumference measurements in order to select the correct size and place an order.
- NECK (N): Measure the circumference midway between the ears and base of neck.
- LENGTH (L): Measure along the back from between the shoulder blades to the base of the tail.
- CHEST (C): Measure around the widest/deepest part of the chest — usually right behind the front legs.

THESE SIZES FOR STANDARD DACHSHUNDS ONLY. Our breed-specific coats are not customized to your dog's measurements, so if your Dachshund has unusual proportions, order a custom dog coat to fit your dog.
Be sure your dog's chest girth falls within the parameters of the size you choose. If your Dachshund is a puppy and still growing, read How do I choose a dog coat for my puppy?
