All our quotations are based on the measurements of animals and the volume of the sky kennel, not the weight.

When measuring very young puppies bought from a breeder, please remember that they will grow considerably between the time they leave their mother and the time they will fly.

Measuring a dog accurately can be difficult. Many people find that using two people makes it much easier, certainly with a larger dog. Getting your dog to stand in front of a wall and then marking the head-to-tail (A), head-to-ground (D) and the shoulder-to-ground (B) measurements on the wall can also make the job easier.

It is not necessary to measure cats unless they are unusually large.


  1. Measurement A: The length of your pet (in cm) , from the tip of its nose to the back of its body.
  2. Measurement B: The height of your pet’s leg from floor to shoulder (in cm).
  3. Measurement C: The width of your pet (in cm) across the shoulders or the widest part of the dog if not the shoulders.
  4. Measurement D: The height of your dog (in cm) from the ground to the top of its head, including the ears if they are erect.
