MEASURING YOUR DOG





It is very important to have a correctly fitted harness for your dog. A properly fitted harness will help ensure the best performance from your dog.

It is important to note that young dogs under a year old may need more than one harness due to their growing bodies. Large breed dogs may need more as they are not fully mature until they are 2 or 3 years old.

All harnesses will need the following the measurements:

All measurements should be in inches.

Neck: This measurement will be taken at the broadest point at the base of the neck. Place the beginning of the tape measure at the center of the shoulder blades (A), bringing it down to the top of the breast bone (B), and back up to the center of the shoulder blades (A). This measurement is the most important one as this is where the harness will sit on the dog. Do not use your dog's collar measurement.

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 your dog is standing and straight when taking this measurement. If your dog is laying down or sitting, the measurement will be off.

Height: With your dog standing, place the tape measure at the shoulder blades (A) and run it straight down to the floor (D).

Girth: Place the tape measure at the center of the shoulder blades (A) run it down the side of the dog behind the front legs (E), and back up the other side to point A. You are measuring the widest point on your dog's chest.

All measurements should be in inches.

Also include your dog(s) breed, age, and weight.
