COLLAR, HARNESS & LEASH SIZING INFORMATION

“How do we know which size of collar will best fit our beast?”

Following a couple simple steps can make selecting a size easy:

  • MEASURE YOUR DOG'S NECK - The easiest way to measure is to use a sewing or tailor's tape. If you don't have that type of measuring tape, your dog's old collar, a shoestring, or even a dog leash can be used to wrap around the dog's neck and get a length...by measuring that length with a tape measure or a ruler, you will come up with a good neck measurement. Be sure to consider the dog's fur, and leave enough room for a couple fingers under the collar. 
  • ORDER A COLLAR BASED ON THE MEASUREMENT - Using our size drop-down menu, pick the collar size that is closest to your dog's neck measurement. If your dog's neck measurement falls on a crossover size (for example 18"...our Medium is 12"-18" and Large is 18"-26"), decide if you want to be able to adjust smaller or larger than the measurement and pick the size accordingly. Size Chart L

PRO TIP: If your dog's neck measurement falls on a crossover size (like 18-inches, which is the top end of the Medium collar and the bottom end of the Large collar), you'll need to make a judgement call. Which way would you like the ability to adjust? Is your dog growing? If you think 18" may be a bit tight, go for the Large.

"How do we know which size of harness to get for our beast?"

Following a couple simple steps can take away some of the guesswork:

  • MEASURE YOUR DOG'S CHEST BEHIND THE LEGS - The easiest way to measure is to use a sewing or tailor's tape. If you don't have that type of measuring tape, a shoestring, or even a dog leash can be used to wrap around the dog's chest and get a length...by measuring that length with a tape measure or a ruler, you will come up with a good chest measurement. Be sure to consider the dog's fur, and leave enough room for a couple fingers under the harness.
  • ORDER A HARNESS BASED ON THE MEASUREMENT - Using our size drop-down menu, pick the harness size that is closest to your dog's chest measurement. If you think you have a "medium" dog, STILL USE THE MEASUREMENT...because even we don't know what a medium dog is. There is a LOT of variability between dogs, even within a breed. It is an imperfect science, but we'll do our best to get you what you need.

PRO TIP: If your dog's chest measurement falls near the end of the adjustment range of a size (like 29.5-inches, which is the top end of the Large harness), you'll need to make a judgement call. Which way would you like the ability to adjust? Is your dog growing? If you think the Large may just barely fit, go for the XL harness.

PRO TIP #2: Our harness sizes are not aligned with our collar sizes... a dog that wears a Medium collar does not necessarily wear a Medium Harness. BE SURE TO MEASURE!!!

"How do we know which size of leash to get for our beast?"

We offer four sizes of leashes, although not all sizes are offered in all prints. Some things to consider when selecting which is best for you are, of course, the size of the dog, their tendency to pull or not, and the environment in which it will be used, i.e. in the city, on trails, etc.. Each leash is strong enough (and probably much stronger) for its intended use.

This is our longest and widest leash...the perfect fit for medium to large dog breeds.
