  • 2. A yardstick is best for taking measurements A, B, C, E, F, G, H.
  • 3. A cloth tape is best for cart measurement D.
  • 4. If you are measuring with a cloth tape be sure to hold the tape straight and taught.
  • 5. If you have a paralyzed dog, you can lay it down on its side with its back straight against a wall and legs extended straight down from the hips and shoulders, and take all measurements this way - except D, F, and G which must be taken in a standing position.
  • 6. If your pet is strong enough to stand, have your pet stand in a square position (with legs straight down from the shoulders and hips).
  • 7.
