Bark Fifth Ave: A Fashion Boutique for your Distinguished Doggie
There are dogs and then there are jet-setting dogs. Bark Fifth Avenue is one of the purveyors of all things high-end pooch. We have a fabulous line of fashionable accessories dedicated to jet-setting dogs, decorated with silk bows, lace, frills, and rhinestones. Lines include ultra-comfortable car seats, fashionable dog totes, sleeping beds, and drink bowls. Don't forget doggie passport covers for those long international flights abroad!
Bark Fifth Avenue is a must shopping experience for the dog with an elite and sophisticated taste in fashion. We sell exclusive designer dog clothing and high-end accessories. We started with a strong passion for fashion and of course, passion for dogs! Walking runways and dressing up animals is something owner Atlanta fashion model Ashley Carestia has been doing since childhood. “I love fashion and I love Chihuahuas, so why not have the best of both worlds?" Thus, Bark Fifth Avenue was created. We provide both an online location and retail boutique in Buckhead where upscale pet owners can treat their four-legged family members to only the best in fashion, travel, and accessories. Whether it’s that extra special outfit for a dressy occasion or an everyday polo, Bark Fifth Avenue has it.

How to measure

1.) The Broadest part of the chest (shown as Chest on the illustration above) For chest measurement, measure the chest at its widest point, which is typically right behind the front legs. If the dog has a large girth, going up a size in the top line measurement is always a smart choice, since some additional fabric will be used up.

2.) The Length of the backbone (shown as Back Length on the illustration above) Measuring should be done along the dog's backbone from the base of the head to the base of the tail. This is from the base of where the collar rests to where the tail is attached. The measurements you see on all our apparel indicate this top line measurement. However, it's important that the dog's girth be taken into account as well as the top line measurement.

3.) The Circumstances of the neck (shown as Neck on the illustration above) The neck size determine whether the dog will be comfortable wearing clothing. If the neck is too tight, the dog would be hard to breath. There are different sizing ranges for different types of garments, due to how binding or flexible the material used is. The most important is the chest size, so if the chest size is ok the other will not matter.
