At Doggy Cruiser, your safety and comfort are our priority. We want you and your best friend to enjoy the ride, so it’s really important to buy the correct size. Just like us, dogs come in all shapes and sizes so please don’t guess how tall Fido is – get your tape measure and follow the instructions below.
Measuring instructions :
You need to measure your dog in the same position as it sits in the Doggy Cruiser. This means measuring it while on its back legs, bottom on the floor (a ‘begging’ position).
Ask someone to hold the dog’s front paws up and off the ground, so its back is straight while you measure from the base of its tail to the collar.
Repeat this measurement to double-check.
Use this measurement to choose the correct size.
