Ask individual dog owners and their definitions will probably vary just as much as the experts, but generally speaking, dogs who weigh 35 to 55 pounds are considered medium-size, and dogs over 60 pounds are considered large by most people.
Is 60 pounds considered a large dog?
Dogs weighing around 30 pounds (14 kg) or less are generally considered small dogs and any breed over 55 pounds (25 kg) is usually considered a large dog.

How do you know what size clothes your dog wears?
As a general rule of thumb for selecting dog clothing sizes, the most important measurements are chest girth and the length. The chest girth is usually the widest and thickest part of the chest measured from the back to underneath the arms. If the clothing is too tight, your dog may get hot and uncomfortable.
