Choosing the right size is important. When the blanket is sized correctly and fits well, it provides maximum protection for key muscle groups and stays on even at full speed. Pomppa is very suitable for both slim dogs and heavily built dogs. The most important thing when choosing a size is that the blanket does not interfere with the dog's natural movements and that the dog feels comfortable in the blanket.
Pomppa blankets are sized according to the length of the dog's back. The size should never be less than the length of the back. However, depending on the dog's dimensions and coat, the correct size may be larger than the back.
Choosing the right size also depends on the intended use of the quilt. When choosing a blanket for active outdoor use, it is important to choose the size that fits well around the waist. For slower activities and waiting in a car, the blanket can be a little bigger.
If the back measurement is between two sizes, you should consider the intended use of the cover and your dog's body shape. For stronger dogs, it may be better to go up a size and for petite dogs, choose the size below.
The picture shows where to measure the dog to choose the right size Pomppa blanket. When you measure, the dog must stand up, the hind legs should be as straight as possible. The measurements must be taken tightly on the dog. If the dog has thick fur, this should be considered by leaving some space in the measurements.
BACK- Measure the length of the back from the neck to the root of the tail. NECK - The starting point in the neck is where the neck and back meet.
CHEST- The chest measurement is measured where the chest is largest.
WAIST- The waist measurement is measured behind the chest where the waist is smallest.
