I cannot stress just how important it is that you take your time when measuring your dog for coats or pyjamas - I rely entirely on your measurements, so if there is anything I should know about your dog, please make sure you include this information.
taking the measurements:
Please use a dressmakers flexible tape measure and make sure that the measurements you give me are exact. I will then make the allowances needed for a good look and a comfortable fit.
Remember that all of my products are made to your specific requirements using your colour choices and your measurements, so I am unable to accept returns unless the fault lies with AK Creations.
what measurements to take:
For all styles of coat, including the housecoat, I need three measurements from you - the LENGTH, CHEST and WAIST. For the 4 leg pyjamas, I need all four measurements, the LENGTH, CHEST, WAIST and HEIGHT.
important information regarding sizing:
As most of my coats have a chest panel, the first measurement you should take should be that one - please make sure that you are measuring the deepest part of the chest and not right behind the front legs. Generally on a well proportioned greyhound or whippet, if you then measure the back length from the points I indicate on the diagram above, you will find that this will come out the same as, or within an inch of, the chest measurement.
If you have any queries regarding the measuring process, please contact me before ordering.
