Finding the Perfect Fit: Tips for Choosing the Correct Harness Size for Your Furry Friend

Loki and Freya have been using Lokeya branded Harnesses, Leashes and Collars for the past 3 years. During most of that time, until October 2023, they had used the same Harness, Leash and Collar. I decided it was time for a refresh and Freya went with the Pink collar and Harness with a black two handle leash and Loki went all Lime Green!

We sell "Pull Less" Harnesses. Most other sites will list something similar called a "No Pull" Harness. They are my favorite type of Harness and whether you buy from us or elsewhere, I highly recommend them. They keep the dogs safe, they are breathable, and my huskies pull less than they do with sled dog harnesses, the thinner line harnesses or if they were just wearing their collar. In all fairness, after about 6 blocks on our walks, they do stop pulling. These harnesses have a solid connector. I chose to use a strong plastic and in the 3 years we've used ours, they haven't failed. There are some options that use a metal, but I thought the metal might get hot in the summer time and added extra weight I don't want dogs to carry.

When you are measuring your dog for a harness, start behind the front legs and measure the girth around the chest. It is important to note that different brands use different lengths in their S, M, L, XL, etc sizes so don't write down the size from one site and use for others. Also be cautious about determining the size of harness based on the weight or breed of your dog. Different ages, genders, lifestyles means your pup may go through a few different harnesses over the course of their life. When measuring the neck, you'll want to measure around the chest bone up and around the base of the neck. However, generally, if the size of the harness works for the girth of you furry friend, you should be good! We do a 30 day return policy, so if the harness doesn't fit, we'll exchange it.
