How to Measure Your Dog
B = Height from ground to elbow joint.
C = Width across shoulders.
D = Height of animal in a natural standing position from the top of the head or the ear tip, whichever is higher.
For dogs or cats traveling international or short nosed dogs determine the kennel size by:
Length = A + B
Width = C + 1in (3cm) x 2
Height = D + 3in (7cm)
For all other dogs and cats, use:
Length = A + ½ B
Width = C x 2
Height = D
For kennels containing 2 dogs or cats, use the size of the largest animal to determine kennel size.
The length and height are determined the same as for a single animal and multiply C + 1in (3cm) x 3 or C x 3 respectively to determine the width.
