TAKING YOUR DOG'S MEASUREMENTS CORRECTLY
Taking thorough measurements of your dog is essential for choosing the correct harness size. Place 4 fingers behind the front legs to find where to measure the chest (girth) for harness sizes 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4, and 2 fingers to take measurements for sizes Baby1 and Baby2.
PUTTING THE HARNESS ON YOUR DOG
Before putting on the harness, it is very important to adjust the chest strap and the lower strap under the chest correctly. If the straps are too loose, the dog might be able to back out of the harness. When the lower strap under the chest is too tight, it is 'merely' uncomfortable for the dog.
When the chest strap is too tight, the buckle rubs against the dog's skin in the armpit area, which can cause chafing. If the lower strap under the chest is adjusted correctly, there should be enough room for you to fit your fingers between the dog's back and the harness.
SECURING THE HANDLE
The handle part on the IDC® Powerharness has 4 different fastening options. It is possible to secure only the INOX® ring or only the handle, or both, or neither. Handles on IDC® harnesses (sizes Mini and Mini-Mini) and K9® harnesses can be secured/covered up with velcro, thus minimizing the risk of the dog getting caught on something by the handle part. This is especially important for dogs running free.
WHAT TO DO IF THE DOG BACKS OUT OF THE HARNESS?
In case your dog attempts to slip out of the harness by backing out of it, or tries to pull its head out of the collar, avoid pulling the leash.
Choosing the wrong harness size, as well as incorrect harness adjustment and collar use may result in the dog slipping out of the harness or the collar. If the harness is too small, the chest strap puts pressure on the dog's neck instead of distributing it over the chest area. Choosing the wrong harness size may result in injury.
The right harness size should leave the dog with enough room in the shoulder area and it should be able to move its legs freely. If the harness is too big, the dog might step over the chest strap with its front legs. JULIUS-K9® holds no responsibility for any injuries resulting from choosing the wrong harness size or incorrect harness adjustment.
