The Measuring Stick

Here is a example how one could make one's own measuring stick. The stick is made from wood
( Block Wood).  The measurement markings is done by placing a ruler or tape measure by the wood of the measuring stick. By using stencils and a marker pen one can mark the cm/ inches on the wood.
 
 

The FCI Standard quotes:-
Important proportions:
Ideal proportion for height at withers to body length (measured
from the point of the shoulder to the point of the ischium) = 5 : 6.
For the ideal relationship of height at withers to depth of chest see the following sketch.



HERE IS HOW YOU MEASURE IT WITH THE MEASURING STICK.
