    I finally got the mix up on sizes figured out -- for some reason I was sent a medium that falls in between the current medium and large sizes, plus a 'real' medium, which I had assumed was a small. But the smalls are really tiny. It's a shame my weird medium isnn't the correct medium size as they are a better medium -- the larges are a lot larger and Jaspar is in between the medium and large.

    The small would be too small for a puppy by the time it is about 6 months.

    The large is pretty big. Jaspar can wear one but it is very loose; he's about 16.5 lbs. The medium is a little snug going over his head but fits fine and there's plenty of room in the girth.
    I agree, I think Zach needs a medium. Abbey had this large, and now that she's lost weight it's really big and baggy on her. She's now wearing a medium, and although it's kinda snug going over her head, it's roomy in her chest (typically the harderst area to fit with this breed). I'd suggest getting two, and then returning the one that doesn't fit, just to see for yourself which fit you're comfortable with. Karlin's right, the small is super small and the large is really big.

    Well, Zack's neck is 12" at the narrowest point and the medium is 11.5", so from what you guys are saying, it sounds like Puppia is not right for Zack.


    According to the size chart, the chest on the Large would be 1" too big, and i thought he would fit into it as he grew, if he grew, he's 9 months, will he grow anymore? I dont' know. Anyway, it sounds like the Medium will be too small in the neck so i guess i'll forget about it.

    If i knew of some place locally where i could buy Puppia, i'd get a medium and try it, but with having to order it and have it shipped and then ship it back if it doesn't fit, that doesn't sound so good, especially if i'd have to pay return shipping. they're already pretty expensive.

    I'll tell you what Judy...

    You can order Zack a medium and if it doesn't fit him I will buy it back from you at cost. I'll send you the money plus shipping up to Canada - we just have to come up to an agreement on the color.

    Judy, it's just a general measurement. Abbey and Gus do not fit the measurements listed, however, they both fit into a medium. It's a bit big on Gus, but the small is too small. It's a bit snug on Abbey, but the large is too large. You just have to go with the size that is more comfortable for Zach, regardless of what the measurements suggest.
    Good luck, and Sara's offer sounds like a perfect solution!

    sara, thanks, that's a good idea, except not sure you are interested in red. anyway, from what everyone is saying, it sounds like it's just not something that will fit Zack. I definitely don't want something too snug, even if i can get it over his head, not sure it would make sense to get the medium if the neck is 11.5" and his neck is 12". I never get things to fit overly snug, i like circulation to be free and for his skin to be able to breathe. I thought a Large size Puppia that was only an inch bigger than his narrowest chest measurement would be fine, giving him a little room to grow, and the neck sounded just right, but from what people here are saying, at Zack's weight, a large would be way too big, not just a little room to grow but hanging on him. So i think his body must just not be right for the Puppia. too bad, they are so nice looking. but with all the info i've gotten on this thread, it sounds like he just has a weird body shape that Puppia can't fit. If he grows another inch in the chest, then i'll get large, if he also puts on three more pounds. But if he also grows in the neck, then he will be too big for the large. so, again, i think he has the wrong body for it.

    if i could find a local retailer that has them, then i could try it on him. They have a phone number so i'll call and see.

    thanks for the support!! definitely get one for kosmo and post photos. What color do you like?

    I actually recently ordered a black one from Roxanne. It should be in the mail in the next few days, but I had to wait because I am a pain in the butt and ordered a color that she didn't sell. According to measurements he'd fit a small but he's still growing so I picked medium. Others on his list are green (thanks to Cathy Moon's Geordie!), dark blue, and camo.. hehe (: The red one seems alright though. Don't be scared off by the puppia - I am sure just like humans dogs have different "body types." Two women at 5'5 weighing in at 140lbs can look totally different, even wear different size clothes!! Is Zack still growing consistently or is he slowing down now? Kosmo is still gaining weight but it's slower than it used to be .. (: Take care Judy and let me know what you decide! (:

    I found a local store in my neighborhood that carries them--way more expensive than online (over $30) but i was able to try on the different sizes and you guys were right, the medium fits him perfectly. The large fit him too, it wasn't bad, it would work, and would be good if he's going to grow very much, but where he's at now, the medium is better.

    The store didn't have the red in medium. All they had was pink and bright green. I found another local store (about 20 miles away) that has the medium for only $19.99 before shipping, that's a good price, although i expect there will be sales tax too. Still it will come out better than over $30, and i might be able to pick it up in person and save the shipping cost, and i have a trip out that way on Wednesday for my job anyway. So that's what I'm going to do Sara, buy one around here some place, but thanks for offering to help zack get his puppia. just the offer is a gift in itself.

    I can't say that he's still growing. His weight hasn't gone up in a long time. It's staying stable. But he's only 9 months so i'm wondering if he will grow some more.

    Did kosmo's puppia arrive yet? photos?

    The colors i like for Zack are red, the soft yellow with the black outline and the soft green with the black outline. I tried the bright green on him and didn't like it.

    so, anyway, he should have one in the next week or so.

    Good choices! I have found that both the red and the yellow look great on Tri-color!

    Jake's beautiful red puppia arrived today. He wore it for his walk this afternoon. I swear he was strutting. I'll take a picture of him in it tomorrow and post.

    Thansk Jen!
