It is very important to have a correctly fitted harness for your dog. A
properly fitted harness will help ensure the best performance from
All measurements should be in inches.
Also note, that young dogs under the age of 1 year may require
more than one harness due to their growing bodies. Large breed
dogs may even need more because their bodies are not fully mature
until the age of 2 or 3 years.
All harness orders will need the following measurements:
Neck: This measurement will be taken at the broadest point on the
base of the neck. Place the beginning of the tape measure on the
center of the shoulder blades (A), bringing it down to the top of the
breast bone (B), and back up the other side of the neck to the
shoulder blades again (A). This is a very important measurement
for the harness because this is where the harness will lay on the
dog. Do not use your dog's collar measurements.
Length: Place the tape measure between the shoulder blades (A)
and run it down the dog's spine to the base of the tail (where the
tail begins)(C). Make sure that the dog is standing and straight
when taking the measurement. If your dog is laying down or sitting,
the measurement will be off.
Height: Place the tape measure even with the shoulder blades
(whithers) (A) and run it straight down to the dog's feet (touching the
ground) (D). Make sure your dog is standing when you take the
Girth: Place tape measure in the center of shoulder blades (A), run
it straight down the side, directly behind the front leg, under the
belly (E) and back up the other side to the center of the shoulder
blade (A). You are measuring the widest belly measurement on
your dog and where the girth strap will be placed.

|Measure your dog the best that you can. If you are unsure of the measurements,
don't be afraid to say so. If your measurements seem off, I will let you know.
And whether the harness is made based on your measurements or mine, I
guarantee the fit of your harness. If it doesn't fit, let me know. You can return the
harness for a refund of the purchase price (minus shipping) or I will redo the
harness at no additional charge.
