Once this process has been completed and is scanned by your local courier, you will be able to see your tracking updates.
If your order has not been updated for a long time and is overdue, you may contact us or the shipping courier for help.

Sizing & Fit
How can I find the right size for my dog?
You can either measure your dog and refer to our numeric size guide, or simply check out our breed reference guide for our recommended size. Both of these guides are available on all of our product pages.

If you have any questions about specific measurements or need help on sizing, please contact us at email@example.com

If you are in between sizes, go with the larger size. We also recommend prioritizing the chest measurement over the neck and back measurements.

That's why we offer a Free exchange on your first purchase, so that you can get the sizing right and eliminate sizing issues in the future.
