Exclamation cosplay for my dog

Hi! I'm planning to dress up my pug as Pakkun from Naruto! I was just wondering if you measure the dog the same way you measure a human or if you do something different. Thanks!

Yay for pugs! I work at a pet supply store and I know pugs can be a pain the butt to fit with stuff because they can be built so stocky. Half the time they can't even fit in a collar without it slipping off because their necks are the same width as their heads, haha. I kind of wonder if you'd be able to find a little kid's shirt in that color and cut off the sleeves to save you a bunch of work. I think you'd measure it the same as a human- belly, chest width, neck, length of garment. I'd recommend getting a really stretchy fabric with elastic to to the head band, and a really light fabric for the actual shirt thing because I know they can have problems with overheating, especially with their skull structures.

People tees don't work on dogs too well, especially stocky ones. Our arms go to the sides, dog legs go out the front.
I know one of the pattern companies (Kwik Sew maybe?) has a dog hoodie pattern. I remember looking at it an being disappointed that it was only sized for small & medium dogs, my old Lab was way too big.
