It’s the size of their heart that can’t be measured.
Fitting your team (or your pet) is easier than sizing shoes for yourself.
Dog Bootie Sizing Info
Booties by Dogbooties.com are built with a slight taper to the toe. This reduces the floppiness of excess fabric at the toe and a better fit on the paw is achieved.
To measure, have the dog stand on a tape measure and measure a front foot at the widest part, as you would measure the width of your own foot.
- XXXSmall = 1 1/2 in. across the widest part, 3 1/2 in. tall.
- XXSmall = 1 3/4 in. across the widest part, 4 1/4 in. tall.
- XSmall = 2 1/4 in. across the widest part, 5 in. tall.
- Small = 2 1/2 in. across the widest part, 5 1/2 in. tall.
- Medium = 2 3/4 in. across the widest part, 5 1/2 in. tall.
- Large = 3 in. across the widest part, 5 1/2 in. tall.
- XLarge = 3 1/2 in. across the widest part, 7 in. tall.
Remember, these measurements are only a guide. Measure the paw and select the size that most closely matches your measurement. Our booties are wider at the top, which allows them to be put on easily.
If you have ordered from us before, it’s easy to determine what size bootie you currently have. Look at the color of the VELCRO® Brand hook. If it’s black, that means it’s xxx-small, white means xx-small, yellow means X-small, pink means small, neon green means medium, orange means large and blue means X-Large.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about sizing. We can assist you in selecting the correct size booties and, believe it or not, it really is easier than it seems.
** A Common Question** WHAT IS THE CLOSURE WRAP? This is the VELCRO® Brand fastener flap that secures the bootie around the dog’s leg. This is easily seen at the top of the bootie. It’s the strap of VELCRO® that wraps around the bootie to keep it in place. HOOK WRAP means the hook, or rough and bristly side of the VELCRO® is used to make the wrap. LOOP WRAP means the soft and fuzzy side is used. VELCRO® Brand VELSTRETCH® fastener WRAP is a special product. It resembles the loop side of normal VELCRO® as it is soft and fuzzy but, even better, it has a built-in stretch.
In our opinion, VELCRO® Brand VELSTRETCH® fastener makes the best closure for booties. It has stretch built in and the tension can be adjusted for the best fit. It is a quality closure that stays put. Some bootie makers use a cheaper, inferior, off-brand closure that resembles fuzzy elastic. There’s no comparison between the two. We’ve seen it – we’d never use it.
Dog Jacket Sizing Info
A = Measure from the shoulders to the beginning of the tail. This is the length of the dog jacket. I.E. If the dog is 12″ long, 12 is the size of the jacket to order.
B = Measure the girth at the widest part of the dog’s chest behind the front legs. Use a tape measure and go all the way around the dog. Please include this number in the comment section of your order for proper fit.
SIZING TIP: If you’re unsure about what size to order, measure the girth of your dog and include that measurement in the comments section of your order, along with the breed of your dog. If it’s a mixed breed let us know what type of dog it most closely resembles, i.e. husky, hound, terrier, lab, etc. Most times we can take it from there.
