How to Measure Your Dog Harness Size with PAWSQUAD

Before you begin, ensure you have a measuring tape and that your dog is standing upright and relaxed. Take the following steps to accurately measure your dog's harness size:

Neck and Collar Measurement:
  • Place the measuring tape around your dog's collar bone where the collar would normally sit.
  • Make sure the tape is snug but not too tight
  • Ensure you can comfortably fit two fingers between the measuring tape and your dog's neck.
  • Take note of the measurement in inches or centimeters.
Chest Measurement:
  • Find the widest or largest part of your dog's chest, usually just behind the front legs.
  • Wrap the measuring tape around this part of the chest.
  • Keep the tape snug but not too tight.
  • Take note of the measurement in inches or centimeters.
Determine the Appropriate Size:
  • Compare the measurements you obtained for the neck and chest with the size chart provided by PAWSQUAD.
  • Typically, you should choose a harness size that matches or is slightly larger than your dog's measurements. Avoid going smaller than the measurements to ensure a comfortable fit for your furry friend.
Take Your Dog's Breed and Body Shape into Account:
  • Some harnesses are designed specifically for certain dog breeds or body shapes. Consider your dog's breed or body type when selecting a harness to ensure the best fit and comfort.
  • Think about their age if they are a puppy and look for harness that is adjustable for when they grow.
Test the Fit:
  • Once you have the harness, put it on your dog and check for proper fit.
  • The harness should not be too loose, as it may slip off or cause discomfort. Neither should it be too tight, as this can restrict your dog's movement and cause chafing.
  • Make sure you can fit two fingers between the harness and your dog's body for a good balance between snugness and comfort.

By following these steps, you'll be able to find the right harness size for your dog, ensuring they stay comfortable, safe, and secure during walks or any other activities.

Remember that different harness features and type may have slightly different sizing guidelines, so always check the specific style of size chart for the harness you're interested in.
