Harness Meaurement Guide

  • Neck (all harnesses) - Measure from just ahead of the withers at the base of the neck to the top of the breastbone, then double this measurement. Work the tape under the fur, pull it snug, but not stretched. Measure the dog, not the fur! Measure only one side of the dog then double the measurement. Wrapping the tape measure all the way around the neck may distort the measurement.

    Neck fit is critical. When properly fitted, where the webbing crosses at the "Y" below the neck , the webbing should cross right on the breastbone. At the same time you are holding the webbing in place on the breastbone, check to see that the webbing in the "Y" at the top of the neck, crosses where the neck joins the withers (shoulder blades). If in doubt about fit call us.

  • Tail (x-back, recreation, split chest, h-back) - Start tape at top of breastbone. Pass between front legs, then up around rib cage to base of tail. Lift tail to feel join.

    Check fit of tail�length by pulling �on webbing to see if �the webbing will come to the base of the tail. Webbing should not come to the base of the tail unless there is tension against it. The more coat the dog has the more tension is required.

  • Rib (siwash cart, freight, yukon) - Start tape at top of breastbone, pass between front legs, then straight back to last rib.

  • Rear (freight, yukon) - Start tape at top of breastbone, pass between front legs, then to back of thigh (position of the spreader bar).
