Hello there, here at Muddy Paws, we sell around 5,000 different dog coats every year. The biggest problem our customers face is how to measure their dog correctly for different kinds of dog coat. Rather frustratingly, different dog manufacturers require measurements to be taken in different ways.
Some require collar to tail, some require withers to tail, some require shoulder blades to tail, and some require chest measurement. The following video will tell you exactly how to do it.

Much to your envy, your dog spends more time sleeping than you. It is therefore vital that you choose the right bed for them so that they can be comfy and sleep well – otherwise they'll be stealing your side of the bed or favourite spot on the sofa!
