Your measurements are very important for the successful building of your ForceK9 vest. Measurements should be recorded in inches and snug to the body, but not tight. Start with a calm dog in a standing position.
Gather your tools necessary to complete the task…pencil or pen, paper, measuring tape (cloth - not the metal type in your garage).
Measure A: The dogs back/spine from the base of the neck (usually about where the collar resides) to approximately the start of the hips.
Measure B: The largest part of the dogs chest/rib cage just behind the front legs.
Measure C: The chest/rib cage approximately 6 inches away from the point of your last measurement (B:).
Measure D: The collar area around the neck.
Measure E: Take your tape measure and place it in the middle (mid-line) of the left leg (as shown above) and measure across the front
of the dogs chest all the way to the middle (mid-line) of the right leg.
Measure F: From the base of the callar area down the chest, go between the front legs and stop just behind the legs (measurement B: location).
