How To Measure Your Dog
Find your dog's girth, which is the widest point of your dog's chest and rib cage area. Harness size measurements are based on girth, which can vary according to breed. Some dogs, like Boxers, are more deep-chested than others. It is important to accurately measure your dog's girth for the best size possible.
1) Stand over your dog and place one end of the tape measure on his spine, just above the widest part of his rib cage.
2) With your other hand, wrap the tape measure behind his front legs and around his body, going underneath the widest part of his rib cage. Place this end next to the beginning of the tape. Put your thumb on the number that meets up with the beginning of the tape measure. The higher number is the girth measurement.
3) Order the proper harness size based on your dog's girth measurement. If your dog's measurement falls between two different sizes, order the larger size if want to allow room to grow.
This is a high quality harness. It is well thought out, fits our Malinois well (55 lbs., we chose the small size) and the padded leather breast plate is a pure bonus over the single front strap designs out there for almost as much money. The adjustable velcro straps are also a great design idea. We may need to trim a little off the front straps to get the underbelly harness moved just a bit forward, but easily done and no big deal if we don't ever do it. I wouldn't suggest this design for a dog much under 50 or so pounds as the small just barely fits our dog. Finally, the 2" nylon belly belt is pinch and rub-free and the buckle is high quality so we no longer worry about a buckle coming unsnapped and "Maggie" running away or attacking someone. This fits so well, Maggie doesn't care if it's on, or if it's off. Recommended.
