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)
Flat-Snouts (Pug, English Bulldog) see the FLAT-SNOUT DOG SIZING chart below.

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

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

 

 

Head length measurement is taken from the base of the skull (where it meets the neck), straight (do not follow contour of face), to the end of the snout. 

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