Measuring for a Y Front Sport Harness
By measuring in a Figure 8 as shown, your dog gets the correct size and best fit in a Y Front Harness.
Check the picture below to see how and where the "Figure 8 Body Measurement" should be taken.
Use a soft tape measure.
Place the tape across the back of your dog's neck, bring both ends around to the front of the chest and cross them over as you take them between the dog's front legs and then up each side of the rib cage so the 2 ends eventually meet at the top of the dog's back (as shown)
Pull it to be a tight, snug fit and read off the measurement.
Now check the chart below, to select the correct size.

Black Dog has developed the "Y Front" Harness System to allow a wide range of size adjustment while maintaining an exceptionally close fit to an individual dog's body shape. This is most important in a sport harness, where a dog is working hard and needs full body mobility and it is especially important to have a well fitting harness for young dogs learning a sport.
The Girth Straps will actively tighten if a dog tries to back out of the harness.
We have often been asked for a fully adjustable sport harness for growing dogs, the Y Front System has been developed just for this reason.
