How do I find the right size?

For dachshund owners or lovers of small dog breeds, finding suitable clothing and accessories for their little darlings has been very difficult. Dachshunds have a unique body shape with an elongated back, a slender neck and a strong chest. Standard sizes rarely work. Nothing fits properly - the clothing is too long, too wide or too poorly made. We also had to experience this for years, which led us to offer a solution to the problem ourselves.

Perfectly fitting clothing for dachshunds and small dogs. That is our mission with Leopold's finest for dogs. Our dog shop offers clothing and accessories specifically for the special body shape of dachshunds and small dogs. So that you can be sure that the respective product fits your little darling, we have indicated the measurements of the different sizes for each item of clothing.

Step-by-step guide to measuring

Your dog

In order to choose the right size for your dog accessory, it is crucial to measure your four-legged friend correctly. Here are the most important steps:

  1. Measure back length:
  • Place your dog in front of you so that he is relaxed
  • Measure from the beginning of the neck to the base of the tail. This is the back length.

  1. Measure waist circumference:
  • Wrap a tape measure around your dog's stomach, about 2 inches behind the front legs.
  • Make sure the tape measure is snug but not too tight. This is your waist circumference.

  1. Measure neck circumference:
  • Measure the circumference of the neck at the widest point, usually above the shoulders.

Also, use a flexible tape measure to measure your dachshund or small dog to ensure that the measurement is as accurate as possible.
