Tip: If you do not have a cloth tape measure, try using a piece of string and then measure the string with a ruler.
The width should be proportional to your dog's size: 1 inch or wider for large dogs; 3/4 inch for medium dogs; 1/2 inch or less for small or toy dogs.
A harness, which fits around your dog's chest and rib cage is ideal for small dogs (under 20 lbs at adult weight), flat-nosed dogs (Pug, Boston Terrier, Pekingese), those with delicate windpipes (Yorkshire Terrier, Chihuahua, Pomeranian) and dogs with neck or spine problems.
For these dogs, leash tension puts pressure on the throat and trachea which can cause irritation, coughing, choking, or even a collapsed trachea. Because the harness straps are on the dog's chest, it relieves his neck from any harmful leash pressure.
A Comfort Wrap Harness has a step-in design that's simple to use and provides a comfortable fit for your dog. Simply lay the harness on the ground and have your dog step in. Pull the harness up, clip the buckle and you're ready! Multiple adjustment points ensure a perfect fit.
There are two types of no-pull harnesses. One type has a leash attachment ring at the center of your dog's chest which gives you more control of your dog's front half and gently guides him back towards you when he pulls.
The other type works by gently tightening around your dog's chest or leg area, restraining him when he pulls. It is ideal for committed pullers.
