How to measure for the belly strap:

  • First, get out the very best treats you have, perhaps cheese, ham, or peanut butter! This is a great opportunity to have a helper bait your dog with a fistful of soft treats to keep your dog focused on trying to lick the food. No helper? Smear something tasty on a paper plate and tape it to the wall at the dog’s eye level.
  • Use a cloth/tailor’s measuring tape or a string for measuring around your dog’s body. Use a flat ruler for the width.
    • Pro Tip: if your dog is nervous with a measuring tape, try using a leash around their body, then measure the leash separately.
  • Have the dog stand square and balanced when taking all
  • For accurate measurements, be sure your dog is standing and square (no sitting or lying down). Keep the measuring tape snug.
  • The withers are where the dog’s shoulder blades stick up.
  • Locate the “sweet spot,” this is where the dog’s back begins, just behind the withers.

Measure the belly:

    • Feel under your dog’s ribs and locate the place where his/her ribs come together underneath, just before the soft part of his belly. Or count 4 ribs from the back of your dog’s rib cage, and palpate to notice the notch where the deep part of the his chest recedes up toward the belly area.
    • Bring the measuring tape under this point of the dog’s ribs, and pull the tape snugly back up to the “sweet spot.”
    • The measuring tape should be at a diagonal, a few inches behind where the girth was measured.
    • Pro Tip: put the measuring tape under your dog and “see-saw” it back and forth while pulling forward toward the withers—this settles the tape nicely under the belly.
    • Be careful not to measure vertically around the dog’s waist, or place the measuring tape so far back it reaches the dog’s flanks—both will yield inaccurate measurements.
    • Boxy or long bodied dogs may not have a clearly defined tuck, just try your best.
