Dog Harness

When it comes to buying a harness, one size does not fit all. You cannot fit a Chihuahua into a harness for a Great Dane, for example. That is a funny image, we will admit. Finding the right size for a harness is a try-and-buy affair. Bring your puppy in for a fitting to get it right, the first time. The second part about buying a harness is convenience. If you take ten minutes trying to get the darn thing on, it might not be the right thing for you or the dog.


How do you size a dog harness?

To size a dog harness, measure the circumference of your dog's chest just behind their front legs, and their neck girth at the base of their neck. Use these measurements to choose the appropriate harness size according to the manufacturer's guidelines. Ensure it's snug but not too tight, allowing for comfort and mobility while preventing chafing or slipping.

Can a dog wear a collar and a harness?

Yes, a dog can wear both a collar and a harness simultaneously. The collar is typically used for identification and leash attachment, while the harness offers better control during walks, especially for dogs that pull.
