Pet carrier sizes are estimates only as we cannot guarantee the correct size of the carrier without the ability to “try it on”. The first consideration is the weight of your pet. Second, is the length of your pet from the base of the head to the base of the tail; this is from the base of where the collar rests to where the tail is attached. If the weight and length measurement are not in the same size category, or your dog is at the highest measurements, we recommend that you go with the larger size. Also, if your dog has a significant amount of hair and is close to the weight or length limit, we strongly recommend selecting the larger size. It is better to go a size larger rather than smaller, as the pet carrier can be modified by the use of a blanket or padding if it is too large.
