BACK LENGTH
Length of back from the bottom of the neck between the shoulder blades along the spine to the base of tail.

NECK
Around the widest part allow enough room so it isn't too tight.

CHEST
Deepest part of chest allowing space for 3 fingers under the tape to allow the dog sufficient reach and movement. If your dog has a lot of hair please allow for this. Measure all the way around the body from behind the front legs at the widest part.

FRONT LEG
Height from spine at highest point of wither, down side of shoulder, straight down to the length you require it to finish. We advise you do not measure down to the foot.

BACK LEG
Height from spine straight down the leg to the length you require it to finish. We advise you do not measure down to the foot.

CHEST FRONT BETWEEN THE LEGS
Standing in front of the dog, width of chest from between inside of right leg to inside of left leg (Armpit to armpit). This will ensure there is enough movement for the dog.
