How To Measure Your Dog's Paws!
Proper footwear fit is essential to a fun day out (or in). Here's how to measure your pet's paws...
With your pet's paw on the ground, measure from the tip of the claws (those have to fit inside the shoe too) to the back of where the paw touches the ground, which is just behind the pad.
While your pet's paw is still on the ground, measure from side to side at the widest point of your pet's paw, which is usually near the base of the toes.
Handy Tip: Try having your pet step on a piece of paper, then trace around the paw. Then, while your pet is off eating your houseplants or terrorizing the neighborhood, you can measure the traced outline in peace.
How To Measure Your Dog!
I have worked with the finest furry tailors in the world, and am here to share my bounty of knowledge. Here's how to measure your pet...
Measure from the base of the tail (where it connects to the hindquarters) up to where the collar typically sits at the base of the neck, then follow up with a generous back scratch.
This is measured by giving your pet a
hug, during which you measure the entire circumference (all the way around) at the widest point of your pet's chest. This is typically right behind the front legs.
First, plenty of kisses. Then, measure the neck's circumference
(the distance around it) at the point where the collar sits.
Important Sizing Note: The given measurements are the dimensions of the actual product, not of the pet they fit. After measuring your pet, make sure all measurements fit within the following dimensions (with a little room to spare in the chest and neck).
Help your pup keep cool and look stylish with the Zephyr Cooling Dog Vest by RC Pets in Ice Blue!
Lightweight mesh material
Uses evaporative cooling technology
Light color deflects heat
Great for dog breeds that overheat easily
Why We Love It:
Keep your pooch comfortable on even the hottest days. The lightweight material uses evaporative cooling to keep your dog’s temperature down similarly to a wet cloth in front of a fan. Unlike some of the soggy competition, the Zephyr Cooling Vest stays lightweight even when wet allowing your dog to comfortably continue their summer activities. The material doesn't require refrigeration or cold water to work. As your dog moves and air circulates around the material, the fabric keeps your dog cool. This is particularly important for snub-nosed breeds in hot climates. Since the chest area is kept in the shade of your pup's body, the material stays damp longer. This is important since your pet's arteries are concentrated in that region. To refresh, simply pour more water over the material. As long as the material is damp, you know it's working to help keep your dog cooler. Temperature and humidity will affect the length of time the material stays damp.
Estimated cooling time:
If the dog is dry and in direct sunlight, it will stay damp for about 30mins – 1hr If the dog is damp and in direct sunlight it will stay damp from 1-1.5hrs. If the dog is dry and in the shade or indoors 1.5-2hrs. If the dog is damp and in the shade or indoors 2-2.5hrs.
Important Sizing Note: The following measurements are the dimensions of the actual product, not of the pet they fit. After measuring your pet, make sure all measurements fit within the following dimensions (with a little room to spare in the chest and neck).

This cooling vest was purchased based on the brand I bought last year. It is ideal for walks and play, but does not last as long as other vests we own before it needs to be rewet. The fabric shade is a soft blue and looks great on dogs with any fur color, but this item was selected as it is effective at keeping a dog cool and not weighing it down with the thickness of a heavier and stiffer vest in summertime.

We purchased the tropical cooling vests in this line and liked them so we picked up this one in a plain color. It works well for walks and play, but does not last as long as other vests before it needs to be rewet. The fabric is pretty and lightweight and it is long on my dogs so it keeps their bodies very cool.
