A harness is much more comfortable and is more reliable than a normal collar. But at first glance a harness seems more complicated. For example, how do you ensure that the harness is not too big or too small? The following also applies here: to measure is to know.
Make sure it is comfortable
The most important thing is of course that the harness fits comfortably. You naturally want to prevent your dog from not getting enough air because the harness is too tight. At the same time, you also want the harness to not be too big and to get in the way if the dog wants to run and jump nicely. It must all be about comfort and sufficient freedom of movement. For that you have to measure the neck and chest circumference to find the perfect size harness.
This is how you determine the right size
To ensure that a harness fits properly, you need to measure the size of the chest (girth). To do this, take the widest part of the chest, just behind the dog’s shoulders. To be sure, put 2 fingers between the chest and the measuring tape. Then you know for sure that the harness is not too tight. With some harnesses you also have to measure the neck circumference. Because the harness in the neck is lower than a collar, you start measuring at the top of the chest bone and go up again along the shoulder blades.
Found the right size What’s next?
