When looking for a new harness is it important to remember to measure your pooch to ensure the perfect fit. This means they are comfortable but also safe and cannot wriggle out. Whilst we can advise you on the approximate size harness based on breed of dog, all dogs come in different shapes and sizes so the only way to be certain you are selecting the correct one is to measure your dog and check our handy sizing chart. And it is much quicker and easier to measure your dog before purchasing than have to return a harness and wait for a different size if it doesn’t fit.
Thankfully, Bew Dogs harnesses are not only stylish but also ultra-adjustable… both the body and neck can be adjusted to the perfect size, ensuring maximum support for your precious pooch. Our harnesses are also slightly padded for the highest levels of comfort for your best friend, and they are receiving rave reviews… just check them out for yourself! Our harnesses come in sizes XXS to Large, and can cater for most size and breed of dogs, including toy breeds and puppies.
We’ve been able to help customers with more difficult to fit breeds due to their natural body shape, such as dachshunds, French Bulldogs, Pugs and Toy breeds. So, whether you’re looking for a harness for a cockapoo, Chihuahua or a Chow Chow… just use our guide below to find the perfect sized harness from Bew Dogs.
Measuring your dog for a new harness is a really simple task. Just follow these easy steps and it should only take a couple of minutes:
- First, find a flexible measuring tape: a soft measuring tape is best, or alternatively you can use a piece of string that can be measured later against a hard tape or ruler.
- Measure around your dog’s neck: Find the base of your dog’s neck, where the collar would normally sit. Gently wrap the measuring tape around the neck, just behind the ears, and record the measurement. Make sure the tape is snug but not too tight, the same as you would like the harness to fit.
- Measure the dog’s body: The body measurement should be taken from the widest part of the dog’s chest, typically right behind the front legs. Again, wrap the tape or string around the chest, right behind the front legs, and record the measurement.
- Compare your measurements: take a look at our sizing chart and select the harness that best fits your dog based on the measurements you have obtained.
- Select the perfect size: If your dog would fit into two sized harnesses comfortably (there is some overlap) consider ordering the larger size to ensure comfort and fit, especially if they are still growing.
Remember, sizes between different dog harnesses do vary, so a dog that is a small in an existing harness will not always necessarily be a small in a Bew Dogs harness, so its always best to double check. It is also important to regularly check and adjust your new harness as your dog grows, or if they gain or lose some weight, to ensure a proper fit and for their safety.
