Sizing

OutFox® Field Guard styles are based on head shape:
The correct type of style allows for enough air space between the dog’s head and Field Guard for the best air circulation and cooling.

Regular head shapes – for the average head shape (ie hounds or shepherds)
Short/Wide
 – wide or furry heads (Pit bulls or Labradoodles with long hair), or long ears (Bassett)
for Flat-Snouts (Pug, English Bulldog) see the FIELD GUARD SIZE CHART – Flat-Snout dogs ONLY, below.

1. CHOOSE YOUR DOG’S HEAD SHAPE TO DETERMINE FIELD GUARD TYPE:

2. MEASURE HEAD LENGTH
(NON Flat-Snout dogs)

REGULAR

Length: Measure at the top of the head, from base of skull to the end of snout.

3. MEASURE HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE
(Flat-Snout dogs ONLY)

SHORT/WIDE

Circumference: Measure loosely around the largest part of the head, going gently over the ears. If the ears stand up, don’t measure up and over ears.

4. CHOOSE A SIZE – (If your dog measures on the borderline between sizes, choose the smaller size.)
