Tips for fitting the Help Em Up Harness:
- Total weight
First and foremost, knowing your dogs total weight will help you determine what size harness you need. Go by the weight of your dog.
- Range within a size.
Harness’ are fully adjustable. You can adjust to meet the unique characteristics of your dog’s dimensions. Each harness has a broad range within its size definition. Meaning – you can adjust the chest to a deep chest or a shallow one, a narrow waist to a plump waist, these harnesses have range! If your dog is on the cusp of two different sizes, we recommend sizing down. Ask for help if you are unsure.
- Consider their age or their condition.
Once a dog reaches a certain age (it’s different for all) they tend to stop adding on weight. So it’s best not to apply the “they’ll grow into it” method. If your dog is losing weight, project ahead. If your dog is recovering from any number of issues, surgery, injury etc… they might be up a few pounds. Once again the harness has added length to straps to accommodate changes.
