    Therapy Dog Sizing Information

    The most important thing you can do to make sure you order the right vest is to measure your dog using these instructions.

    Use a soft fabric measuring tape. Measure all the way around the rib cage, full circle. Just like a saddle fits a horse. Your dog must be standing.

    • Tiny:13-16 inches (Yorkshire Terrier, Silky Terrier, Papillon, Maltese, Toy Poodle, Miniature Chihuahua)
