Sizing Information

               How to get the perfect size

       How measure your dog

We find it easier to use a piece of string, run it along the areas that need measuring and then measure your string with a tape measure.

Measure standing only.

A: Measure the body length – from the base of the neck just above the shoulder blades to the base of the tail (where the tail joins the body) Include all top contours of the dogs back - not along the side of the body.

B: Measure around the neck where the collar should  be – Do not measure with a collar on. 

C: Measure around the chest at its widest point usually right behind the front legs. Allow enough room to fit two fingers between the tape or string on medium to large dogs and one finger for small dogs for extra comfort.

Please note:
Measurement A is referred to as the ‘back length’ measurement and will determine the most appropriate size for your dog. You will use this size to order any items

Always round up to the next size if measurement is over maximum range in the smaller size or if your dog has a thick coat or a wider chest.

Measure carefully and double check your measurements.

Compare these measurements with those shown under SIZE GUIDE for the product style you have chosen.

If you are in Auckland or visiting you can bring your dog in with you when shopping in-store and we can help you choose something that fits them comfortably .

Note: Measure from shoulder blades - Do not measure up the neck or from the collar this will give larger measurement and the coat will be too big.


These charts are meant as a guide and items can vary Slightly by style.Please compare detail sizes with yours and allow 2-3cm difference due to our garments being hand cut and sewn, thanks!



Measure around the neck of your dog with soft tape or string at the point where the collar normally sits. Collars are not supposed to be tight around the neck, so measure with two fingers inside the tape or string for medium to large dogs and only one finger for small dogs. If you have a puppy, take into account they are still growing.

 Greyhounds and long necked breeds wear their collars higher, so take measurement where the collar sits naturally ,normally higher up the neck.

Measurement is taken where the buckle joins the leather…. First size to the first hole, second size to the last hole. The best size to choose is the neck size between the two measurements.

If your has an existing collar that fits comfortably - you can measure it from the buckle to the hole most often used -as a guide.

Puchi collar sizing




The sizes quoted are the sizes of the actual products NOT the dog they fit. Please measure your dogs neck and chest and make sure the measurements fit the given harness measurements. Give a little room to spare in the neck and chest.

Please ensure  you measure your dog accurately and order the correct size to minimise the risk of return.



Locally owned

Puchi is proudly NZ owned and our label is designed and made in New Zealand supporting local talent.

Our unique, high quality Puchi label is not only aesthetically gorgeous, highly functional but also affordable.

We aim to make fashion fun for owners and the furry friends in their lives. We don’t stock anything that we wouldn’t or haven’t used with our own pets.

Enviromentally friendly

At  Puchi we source a large quantity of our goods here in New Zealand.

We have firm beliefs in looking after the environment and by sourcing many eco-friendly products that are made in New Zealand we can cut our carbon pawprint down a considerable amount.

Handmade in New Zealand

Our beautiful coats are handmade in New Zealand using only minimum fabric remainders sourced from luxury designer fabrics so these are an exclusive item made in limited quantities and as a result they tend to sell out fast.

A pre-order ensures that you will receive the design desired and will give your dog a unique style that is not easy to imitate.
