Fitting a Front Lead Harness

How to fit your Front Lead Harness

 

  •                   Adjust the girth (belly) strap first – this keeps the chest strap high on the chest, a low chest strap will interfere with your dog’s front legs and be uncomfortable.
  •                     The girth strap should be firm, (room for one finger), while the chest strap should fall naturally in the correct position across the chest and does not need to be tight. A common mistake is to tighten the chest strap too much so that it pulls the girth straps into the dog's armpits.
  •                    Make sure that the chest strap is perpendicular to the belly/back strap and that the chest strap meets the belly/back strap in the middle of the dog's body. The belly/back strap should be straight up and down. The diagram above should help you to get the right fit. If you are getting more of a Y shape, it means you need to loosen the chest strap and tighten the belly strap and/or shoulder strap.

 

 

GETTING THE RIGHT FIT

Chest Strap - Measure from just behind the right front leg (where the belly strap will sit) across the chest all the way around the opposite point, just behind the left front leg

This is your chest measurement

(see black strap in image below)

 

Girth Strap – Measure all the way around the dog, again just behind the front legs

This is your girth measurement

(see coloured strap in image below)
