CUSTOM SIZE

Your dog doesn't fit in the regular sizes of our harness sizing chart? Give us the 3 measures desbribed below, the weight of your dog and we will see if a custom sized harness is needed.

IMPORTANT

Feel free to contact us if you don't know what would be the right harness size for your dog.

PRISE DE MESURES

FOREWORD

To take the measurement, use a flexible tape measure as shown in the picture.
So that your measurements are as accurate as possible, your dog must stand with his back straight.
For dogs with a lot of hair, flatten the measuring tape on the dog's body so that its fur does not influence the measurements.

STEP 1
POINT A

The three necessary steps for making a harness are all from POINT A. It is therefore very important to locate the harness.
POINT A is at the junction of the dog's neck and shoulder blades.
At this point, there is a hole where the finger sinks easily - it is exactly at this hole that POINT A is located.

STEP 2
AB MEASUREMENT - NECK

The AB MEASUREMENT is the measurement of the neck. It starts from POINT A (previously identified) to POINT B.
POINT B is on the sternum bone (pointed bone under the dog's throat).

The AB MEASUREMENT is not all around the neck but a half-oval from POINT A to POINT B.
There must be some tension in the tape measure when you take the measurement. It is also necessary to exert a slight pressure if the dog has a lot of hair (not to overvalue the measure).

STEP 3
AC MEASUREMENT - TORSO

The AC MEASUREMENT is the measurement of the torso. It starts from POINT A (previously identified) to POINT C.
POINT C is at the lowest point of the dog's torso, below it and just behind the front legs.

When taking the measurement, the dog must have the back as straight as possible so as not to distort the measurements. The tape measure should be taut and slightly raised above the back (should not follow the curvature of the back).

STEP 4
AD MEASUREMENT - BODY

The MEASURE AD is the measurement of the body. It starts from POINT A (previously identified) to POINT D.
POINT D is exactly where the dog's tail starts / detaches from his body.

When taking the measurement, the dog must have the back as straight as possible so as not to distort the measurements. The tape measure should be taut and slightly raised above the back (should not follow the curvature of the back).

AJUSTEMENT DU HARNAIS

FOREWORD

1. If there is no tension on the harness rope, it is normal that it goes back more or less in the back of the dog according to its morphology.
Therefore, to ensure that the selected size is good, it is essential to pull on the harness cord to validate the adjustments.
2. If necessary, pull out the hair and the skin of the neck of the harness.

GOOD SIZE

When pulling the harness rope horizontally, the harness strap must end at POINT D (where the dog's tail begins).

As a result, the harness releases the thigh area (1), flanks (2) and is supported by the rib cage (3).
In addition, the neck should be tight enough to hide the sternum bone (POINT B) and clear the shoulders (4).

TOO BIG

In the case of a harness that is too big, the harness strap ends farther than POINT D (where the dog's tail starts).
As a result, the harness passes over the upper thighs (1), enters the flanks (2) and is not well supported by the rib cage (3).

In the case of a neck that is too large, the sternum bone (POINT B) comes from the bottom of the neck.
As a result, when the dog pulls, the strap that passes around his neck departs and creates pressure on his shoulders that can hurt him.

TOO SMALL

In addition, the harness will tend to go up in the armpits of the front legs and cause risk of friction.
In the case of a neck that is too small, the neck can create pressure on the trachea when the dog is pulling. This can lead to breathing difficulties or coughing.

In the case of a harness that is too small, the harness strap ends before POINT D (where the dog's tail begins).
Therefore, although the harness releases the thighs (1) and the flanks (2), it passes too high at the chest (3) which exerts pressure at the level thereof.
