How to Measure Your Dog for a Harness

How to Choose the Right Size Harness for Your Dog?

Harnesses are the safest way to walk your dog. They give you ultimate control on walks. Collars cause undue damage to your dog's trachea.

These are the key measurements:

  1. Chest: Measure around the body of the dog with a flexible cloth tape measure. You should be starting at the bottom of the rib cage and going up and over the back and then back down to where you started.
  2. Neck: Wrap the tape around the thickest part of your dog’s neck and take that measurement. The part right on top of his shoulders, not where he would normally wear his collar which is narrower.
  3. Weight: While chest and neck measurements are the most accurate ways to fit a dog, many harness companies use weight to guide sizing. If you’re having trouble getting your furry friend on the scale, weigh yourself first, then pick up your pooch and weigh the two of you together. The difference will be the weight of your dog.

Walk safely with a good fitting harness.
