Measuring for a Lilcracka Coat
Make sure your pet is standing Squarely with head up while measuring.
Determine the length of your pet’s body by measuring between the base of neck (where the neck joins the body/Withers) and the Base of the Tail along the spine.
This measurement is the length of coat required to fit your pet.
Great coatBy: Julia on 14 June 2016I got this coat for my Great Dane to wear inside during the night. It is very well made, and he gets excited when I put it on him, so its apparently also very comfortable. His back measured 82/83cm so I decided to go for the 85cm coat to be safe, the coat (back part only) measures 87cm laying flat so Lilcracka do add extra fabric. If your dog is also between measurements and not a wide build I'd recommend going to the smaller size, even adjusted as small as it will go its still too big around his neck, front of his chest and very long around his bum and sides. These coats definitely suit all breeds because of just how much you can adjust them, It does have a decent amount of stretch too. Saying that it's too big it still actually fits pretty well, it slips back a bit but not nothing too bad, it doesn't get caught, nor does he get urine or excrement on it which was my fear with it being a bit big. I will note I awoke this morning to find he had chewed the front chest part pretty bad, so if your dog also likes to chew on fabric, I'd recommend going with the tougher winter coat. Though I do also think if it fit him properly he wouldn't have been able to chew it like he did, I'll do my best to make it work for now, but I'll definitely be back to order the 80cm coat. These coats are awesome. Hopefully my review is helpful.
