    Kurgo Trufit Dog Harness


    To start, there are a few different measurements you should get:

    • Chest: Measure around the body of the dog with a flexible cloth tape measure. You should be starting at the bottom of the rib cage and going up and over the back and then back down to where you started.
    • Neck: Wrap the tape around the thickest part of your dog’s neck and take that measurement. The part right on top of his shoulders, not where he would normally wear his collar which is narrower.
    • Weight: While chest and neck measurements are the most accurate ways to fit a dog, many harness companies use weight to guide sizing. If you’re having trouble getting your furry friend on the scale, weigh yourself first, then pick up your pooch and weigh the two of you together. The difference will be the weight of your dog.

    Find your size in the chart below. In most cases, the sizing ranges will overlap. For example, the neck size of a medium harness might be 16-25" while the large is 18"-30". If your dog falls within the range for both sizes on both the neck and chest, we suggest you go to the larger size.



    How to set-up an over-head harness (One Time)

    To put on a harness properly, you should make sure it starts fairly loose so it’s easy to slip on your dog. You can tighten it once it’s on. You should also note that a proper snug fit means you can fit two (and only two) fingers between your dog and the harness at any point. Slide the harness over the head of your dog. Do not tighten anything at this point.

    Swing the chest piece up so that it’s touching your dog’s chest and belly. On the chest piece, you’ll find two buckles, swing these up (one on either side of your dog, behind the front legs) and fasten them to the back of the harness. Adjust the sides of your harness to fit snugly.

    Adjust the belly (if applicable) of your harness to fit snugly. Only some harnesses, such as the Kurgo Tru-Fit Smart Harness, include the adjustment point on the stomach

    Adjust the neck of your harness to fit snugly.
