Sizing & Measuring


Measuring your pet is essential to getting clothing that fits well. Please be sure to pay close attention to each item’s specific sizing guide as sizing will vary with different designers. We recommend measuring your pet as follows for the best fit possible:


  1. Neck – Measure around your dog’s neck at the place where a collar would fit.

  2. Chest – Measure the size of your dog’s chest directly behind the front legs all the way around.

  3. Back – Measure the length of your dog’s back from the base of the neck to the base of the tail.

If your measurements fall between sizes then always select the larger size.


Don’t rely on weight as an accurate guide for sizing. Generally weight is included to assist you in determining the approximate size, but it should not be used to determine the exact size. Always measure your dog.

If you have any questions or are unsure about measuring your pet please feel free to contact us at 416-407-9007, or email us at barkavenue@barkavenuebycucciolini.ca and we will be happy to assist you. All of our items have a size chart that you can click on to enlarge below the price and quantity boxes.

When measuring, try to have your dog stand in a relaxed stance. Use a fabric or soft tape measure, and measure completely around the appropriate body part. Keep the measuring tape a bit loose.

Please remember that every pet is different and might need to wear a size up, especially if your pet has longer, thicker fur, is larger boned, or has a deeper, fuller chest. This might apply especially to sweaters, dresses, or t-shirts, if you prefer a looser fit.
If you have any sizing questions, please email us at: barkavenue@barkavenuebycucciolini.ca with your pet’s measurements (neck, length of back and girth). We will try our best to get a good fit based on your measurements.
