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 Midnight Sky 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!)

My dog's best buddy owns this harness so my boy just had to get his own and match. We have several of the Doggie Design choke-free harness styles in many colors and are always pleased with the fit, construction, material, colors, and range of inches for closure to accolade a furry fellow, one freshly clipped, or when worn over a sweater.

I bought this harness for Nelson. He is a Shih Tzu/Cocker weighing 18 lbs. I got the large. Fits good and he likes the fact it does not go over his head. He just has to step into it.

Excellent service and fast shipping!!! I bought this harness for my friends dogs and his dog loves it. The dog was so happy that I had to buy another one for my other friends dogs and both of the dogs were satisfied. Fits perfectly. The measurements are perfect but if it runs big no worries because it will be the right measurements when you put the harness over the coats for the winter.

Two years ago, I purchased Doggie Delight choke free harnesses (looked the same, but different colours) for my Yorkie brothers....they were awesome! They fit perfectly, and have lasted really well, but they were getting a little tight, so I decided that it would be a good idea to get new ones, in a larger size. Love the colors, and the same great design to allow for a "choke free" walk.

I ordered a small harness for my 8lb Shorkie and it fits him perfectly! He has enough room for a bit of wiggle space around his chest and neck area. If you are interested in buying this harness, I highly recommend it!

I don't usually purchase a harness but decided to with a new very active Yorkie puppy. Bentley weighs about 5.5 lbs but is long and leggy for his weight. I ordered the XS and it fits perfect with some grow room. The velcro is easy and handy.

Bentley has been an attraction himself in his Doggles. We ride motorcycles and all the ladies want to have his picture made with him. We have had a lot of fun with it.
