What size is right for my dog?
Most manufacturers specify sizes in terms of total weight, which doesn’t mean much of anything if you have a dog that happens to have a very thin or thick neck for their size. Check to make sure the collar you’re buying has a girth measurement.
Even though this might sound like an indication that your dog is overweight, it’s just a measurement of your dog’s diameter. Take a tape measure and gently hold it around their neck and midsection.
You’ll be able to find the right size collar this way in no time.
When is the best time to start using a no pull harness?
It’s always best to teach your dog basic commands first. In fact, probably around 80 percent of dogs will get their pulling down to a comfortable level just by teaching them these.
If you’re still having some issues but your dog is receptive to learning a few things, then try teaching them a couple of extra commands first. The extra instruction might prove to be enough motivation to get them to stop.
Once you’ve done a little more training and find you’re still having some issues, the time might be right for a no-pull harness. Some manufacturers make training harnesses, which you can start you dog on before you graduate to something bigger.
How much padding do you need?
Depending on the type of harness you get, you might not have to have padding because some are fitted well enough that your dog shouldn’t get any chaffing.
Trainers sometimes say that padding is a way to make up for a bad design, but this isn’t true either! Look for something with a little layer of sponge on the back.
You probably want around an ⅛-¼” or so. Much more than this might encourage your dog to slip out of the harness and get free in the process.
