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).
The PetSafe Gentle Leader Easy Walk Harness in Red and Black is designed to gently discourage dogs from pulling while walking on a leash.
Quick-snap buckle on both the shoulder and belly straps for easy on and off.
Soft, but strong nylon and four adjustment points provide maximum comfort and a reliable fit.
Belly strap is an attractive complementary color - making it easy to identify which straps go where.
Why We Love It: Traditional harnesses can actually encourage dogs to pull harder on a leash because of the "opposition reflex." The Easy Walk Dog Harness' unique front-chest leash attachment stops pulling by tightening slightly across your dog's chest and shoulder blades. The gentle pressure steers your dog to the side and redirects his attention back towards you. The Easy Walk Harness never causes coughing, gagging, or choking because the chest strap rests low across the breastbone, not on the delicate tracheal area. Great for any dog, big or small!
Girth/Chest should be measured snugly around dog's rib cage, just behind the front legs. Chest width measures across the front of the chest to the intersection of the girth measurement. See the video below for detailed measuring instructions.

Charlie is back again styling his red walking harness. Such a great item that prevents dogs of all ages (youngest to the oldest) from pulling their owners when out for a walk. This item makes walks more enjoyable for both man/woman and his/her best friend !

The quality of these harnesses is good. However, this harness didn't fit my dog properly no matter how I adjusted it. The front strap would always sag down in front of his legs. It would also chafe his armpits. My mom used these harnesses for her dogs and they worked fine for some extra control but she also had the sagging problem (although it wasn't as much of a problem because her dogs are taller). After reading about how these types of harnesses (straight strap across the shoulders) can alter a dog's movement, I won't use again on any other future dogs.
Helpful with pulling

This harness was recommended by our dog trainer and since then I have purchased one for each of my 4 dogs because I love how well it works for all types of dog personalities. It is adjustable all over for a great fit and the loop in the front has a safety feature for a little tightening that keeps a dog from getting too far ahead of you and pulling. I have found my large 69 lb. dog can no longer knock me over when he tries to chase a truck going past us or other distraction he wants. I can walk him without fear of being pulled on the ground and we both enjoy the walk as this harness is kind to the dog as well. It is also great with my two dogs that escape from other harnesses and collars by wiggling, but can't with this one. Again now I am not afraid to walk them since I know they won't get loose and we all have a good and safe time. It is also gentle to my Senior dog. And none of the choking sounds other things can cause when dogs pull or get excited when walking. I highly recommend it!

This was first recommended to us by a dog trainer and since then I have bought one for each dog = 4! All still look and work GREAT after years of daily use and machine washing. It is wonderful because it has the attachment in the front for the leash so a strong dog either large, medium or small dogs ... 1. The dog can't pull you off your feet when the UPS truck goes by. 2. The dog can't pull and cause the choking sound 3. Doesn't damage the dog's spine like other harness with the back leash attachment 4. A dog can't wiggle out of it and escape. 5. It is very adjustable for a growing dog or for a nice custom fit. 6. Excellent quality materials that last and last. I purchased one for my powerful 68lb. Aussie who gets very excited on walks, one for my elderly Border Collie because it is gentle on his body, one for each of my 2 Hoodini escape artist smaller dogs. I keep it attached to our leashes and only use it for dog walking. Occasionally check it hasn't loosened over time usage.

My big guy pulls a lot on the leash. I bought the size Large for my 85lbs Mastiff/Pitbull mix and it fits him perfectly. It really helps reduce the pulling.
