Dog Harness

Just like us, no two dogs are ​the same. We have provided a guideline for which size dog harness will fit the breed of dog. The guide should help you select your harness, but we recommend measuring your dog before ordering, to be sure.

Measuring for your dog for a harness:

  • Ensure your dog is standing still

  • Measure using a fabric tape measure or string

  • Measure the chest immediately behind the forelegs and immediately in front. Both sizes should fit within the adjustable range.
