How to Measure Your Dog — The Ultimate Guide

November 16, 2020 1 Comment

When looking to buy your dog a new harness, collar, or winter-ready dog coat, you will always need to know your dog's measurements. While it might be tempting to select a product size based on your best guess, this can lead to unnecessary and time-consuming exchanges or returns down the road.

Dog apparel outfitters like DJANGO use a few key dog measurements in their size charts: chest girth, neck girth, back length, and height (also known as "withers"). Not sure what some or all of these mean?

We (Steph and Mike) know that measuring your dog for harnesses, clothes, pet carriers and shoes is confusing and may make you want to hide your measuring tape. In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we cover how to correctly measure your dog's neck girth, chest girth, back length, height, and paws.

New Puppy Checklist: Everything You Need Before Bringing Home a New Dog

November 04, 2020 2 Comments

When Django's breeder unexpectedly called us a week early to say she was coming to NYC the following day and could drop Django off at our apartment, Mike and I freaked out. We hadn't yet had time to prepare for Django's arrival and literally had zero new puppy essentials... no dog food, no dog crate or bed, no dog harness or leash. We ultimately had to postpone Django's arrival by a week.  We needed time to figure out what puppy items were needed and how we'd keep Django safe in our tiny one-bedroom Brooklyn apartment.

If you are getting ready to bring home your first puppy, you might not be aware of everything you need for the new dog's arrival. Here are the most essential pet items to get prior to bringing home your new four-legged family.

October 08, 2020 1 Comment

Not all dogs are allowed to fly in the cabin of airlines. Larger dog breeds that do not fit under a plane seat in an enclosed pet travel carrier are required to fly via cargo. Additionally, some countries including the United Kingdom prohibit in-cabin pet travel entirely and require that all dogs regardless of size enter their country via the hold of the plane.

If you are planning to fly your dog via airline cargo travel, there are several steps you can take to ensure your four-legged family member's trip is as safe and seamless as possible.

Here are tips on how to best prepare your dog for a safe cargo flight.

The Best Dog Breeds for Apartment Living and City Life

August 24, 2020 2 Comments

Before getting our dog Django back in 2015, Mike and I (Steph) did a lot of research into what dog breeds were best for city and apartment living. At the time, we were living in a tiny one bedroom apartment in Brooklyn. We wanted a dog that would happily trot down the busy sidewalks of New York City with us, ride NYC's noisy subway in a dog-friendly carrier bag without any hesitation, and not take up too much space in our very compact apartment.

There are several things to consider if you're looking to welcome a four-legged companion into your apartment or city home. Will the dog bark a lot and disturb your neighbors? How energetic is the breed, and will the dog do well without a huge house or large backyard to run around in? Does the breed do well around a lot people and/or dogs?

If you are looking for a dog well suited for apartment living and an urban environment, this article is for you. Here are the top dog breeds best suited for compact residences and the hustle and bustle of city life.
