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 and feel amazing in this stunning Cobalt Sport Ombre American River Choke-Free Dog Harness!
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!)

I have a black and white Shih Tzu and this fits him perfectly (although I had to order a larger size than he measured for) and its easy to put on and looks so cute against his fur!

Safety comes first washed the harness Velcro stayed strong. I think this harness is great and the quality is amazing. Soft harness but strong hold.
Velcroe stopped working

I bought this harness and within 9 months the Velcro stopped working so I would have to say this is not a good product for the price.
No joke, it doesn't choke.

I like this harness a lot. It is cut lower in the front and our dog does not choke himself when pulling. I bought this item previously and had to return it because I didn't order large enough. These run smaller than others we have bought. Don't be like me. Measure first.

This is a really pretty harness. The ombré colors flow really well together. The fit is true as to what is stated. The shipping was quick and the sales associate I talked to on the phone was knowledgeable and professional.

Bought this for my sister's puppy since it did not have to fit over her head and would be easy to put on.
Best fitting harness ever

I love the harnesses that I have bought from BaxterBoo. I had previously ordered 2 for my 2 Yorkies and they love wearing them and I love how comfortable they are wearing them. After my groomer gave them their "summer cuts" my male Yorkie's harness became too big for him. I ordered a size smaller in a different color because they were out of the color I originally had but I really love the new color and he is way more comfortable now! Kudos to BaxterBoo!! They always come thru for me!!

I've been buying this style of harness for a few years now. It's easy to put on and take off my dog, and I am confident that it is comfortable for him. Highly recommend!
very cute harness

I purchased this color in a size medium and it fits my 13 lb chihuahua min pin mix with some room to spare. The velcro closure is substantial and strong and garment is well made. The buckle and ring is sturdy and sits above the harness therefore moves and flops around if I dont have a leash attached, when the dog runs around the house. He sounds like a little clacker toy. Lol. Overall a nice little harness. I do suggest carefully checking size charts for each individual harness as they all differ in measurements, i ordered the black in a large and this one in a medium based on measurements. The customer service was very helpful to me in telling me this information when i called.

This is wonderful ! Finally, a harness that works with no more choking and constant coughing. My little one still pulls occasionally on his leash, but at least now we both breathe easier !
