How To Measure Your Dog's Paws!
Proper footwear fit is essential to a fun day out (or in). Here's how to measure your pet's paws...
With your pet's paw on the ground, measure from the tip of the claws (those have to fit inside the shoe too) to the back of where the paw touches the ground, which is just behind the pad.
While your pet's paw is still on the ground, measure from side to side at the widest point of your pet's paw, which is usually near the base of the toes.
Handy Tip: Try having your pet step on a piece of paper, then trace around the paw. Then, while your pet is off eating your houseplants or terrorizing the neighborhood, you can measure the traced outline in peace.
How To Measure Your Dog!
I have worked with the finest furry tailors in the world, and am here to share my bounty of knowledge. Here's how to measure your pet...
Measure from the base of the tail (where it connects to the hindquarters) up to where the collar typically sits at the base of the neck, then follow up with a generous back scratch.
This is measured by giving your pet a
hug, during which you measure the entire circumference (all the way around) at the widest point of your pet's chest. This is typically right behind the front legs.
First, plenty of kisses. Then, measure the neck's circumference
(the distance around it) at the point where the collar sits.
Important Sizing Note: The given measurements are the dimensions of the actual product, not of the pet they fit. After measuring your pet, make sure all measurements fit within the following dimensions (with a little room to spare in the chest and neck).
Your pup will look sweeter than cotton candy in this gorgeous American River Choke-Free Dog Harness in Sugar Plum Ombre!
What sets the patented American River Choke-Free Dog harness apart from others?
Trachea safe - The Choke-Free patented design pulls only from the chest, never the neck. Many smaller breeds are susceptible to having a collapsed trachea, especially when using a collar. Even regular harnesses can be dangerous for toy and teacup breeds. Don't put your pup's airway at risk with anything but a choke-free harness!
Patented Conforming Shape Fit Seam Technology - This unique feature allows the harness to conform to curves even on hard-to-fit dog chests.
Patented Closure Slide Adjustability - Most harnesses have little or no size adjustment at the clasp. This unique design allows the clasp to slide along the nylon webbing for a full 3 inches of adjustment.
Double D-ring - Most harnesses have only a single D-ring. Furthermore, some companies use D-rings that aren't welded shut. The remaining slit in the metal of sub-par D-rings may open under pressure and the nylon could slip out, leaving your dog at risk for escape. Since the American River Choke Free Harness features two welded D-rings in its design, you're getting double the protection.
Reflective strips - All 31 colors of American River Choke Free Dog Harnesses feature reflective strips that can be viewed from the front and the sides to provide visibility during nighttime or early-morning walks.
Zig zag trim binding stitch - Using a zig-zag stitch over the harness trim ensures there will be no missed stitches. This means the trim and the mesh fabric are fully bonded to each other.
Safety – The choke-free design makes this harness an ideal choice for use as a car seat belt harness since it pulls from the chest, not the neck.
Double safety closure- Wide touch fastener and high strength plastic buckle clip ensure your dog won't be able to get out of the harness. When paired with a leash through the double D-rings, the harness has three levels of closure strength!
Easy to apply - The step-in design makes putting on this harness a breeze. Once your pup has stepped into the harness leg holes, wrap the touch fastener around your pup, click, and go!
Easy-care fabric- Soft mesh polyester is machine washable. Line dry.
Sized to fit most dogs - this harness has sizes from XXS through XXXL (to fit dogs from 3-100 pounds!)

We recently rescued a 6 pound long haired chihuahua mix. It was difficult to find a collar that wasn’t too bulky for her. These harnesses are the perfect answer. They are extremely easy to put on and fit over a fleece coat. They are also very pretty. We get so many compliments. They look great on my black dog and make her stand out in the crowd!

These are the best harnesses I have found for my little puppies. They feel very secure and seem comfortable. I love the added safety feature of the Velcro and clasp closures with double D-rings. Materials and craftsmanship are awesome. Just be sure to follow the directions when putting it on your pup (be sure to angle the Velcro ends) and I'm confident they will become your favorites as well!

Couldn't resist adding this harness to Piper's ever-growing collection from BaxterBoo. Item arrived sooner than expected, colors are bright and beautiful, and Piper looks beyond adorable in this harness (if I do say so myself). Totally pleased, as I have been with each and every purchase from BaxterBoo.
