The Best Aussie Dog Parks revealed!
There are many public parks within Australia where you and your dog can adventure and exercise to your hearts’ content.
Before you head out, take note of which park areas are off-lead and which are on-lead, before letting your pooch wander. Lots of bags do supply poop bags however just to be on the safe side, bring your own bags so you’re not left without any. The same goes for water - take a portable water bowl along to fill up when required.
Here are some fantastic Aussie dog parks options to consider.

Sizing Chart

Measure for a Collar

To measure for a collar or bandana, you need to measure your dog or cats neck. (Just like measuring for a shirt.) Place a tape measure around their neck allowing two fingers to slip under the tape for comfort.

How to get the correct harness size

You need to measure the chest behind the front legs to get the sizing. Place a tape measure behind the front legs around the chest.  Use that measurement to select the size from the shopping cart. For example:  If your dogs chest is 49cm then he needs the medium in the soft harness.



How do I measure for dog clothing?

To measure for dog clothing, measure the length of your dog's back, neck and chest (if applicable) and take note of the measurement. If your dog is in between sizes, we recommend choosing the smaller size, otherwise, it may be too baggy.  As each of our design collections has different measurements, be sure to read the specific sizing specifications of each product carefully.
