Dog harness buying guide

Before purchasing a dog harness, consider the following to ensure it’s the best one for your pet:

  • Fit. Measure your dog’s chest and neck girth. Plenty of treats and praise will make this process more enjoyable.
  • Durability. Will you be using it every day? Going on long hikes? You’ll want something that will last.
  • Adjustable. Dogs can change size over the years. Adjustable straps ensure they always have breathing room and also allow you to use the harness on multiple pets.
  • Style. Fun colors and designs make wearing a harness a fashion statement.
  • Reflective features. If you’re walking in the dark, reflective strips add visibility.
