How to Measure Your Dachshund

Measurements are needed for all coat orders. You will need your Dachshund's weight, neck, length, and chest circumference measurements in order to select the correct size and place an order. Remember that our coats are breed specific, so Dachshund coat sizes are unique to the breed and not intended for another breed.

After measuring your Dachshund, enter your dog's measurements in the Get Your Dog Fitted area. Use your dog's measurements to select the best coat size for your dog. These are standard Dachshund sizes, and are not customized. If your Dachshund has unusual proportions, order a custom dog coat to fit your dog.
