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.

|Regular||70 (cm)||195 (cm)|

Y-Front Tracking Harness - Small
Easy to adjust across a broad size range - "Y Front" Tracking Harness.
This harness has been design to fit a wide range of very small to medium breed dogs.
Black Dog developed the "Y Front" Harness to allow 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 Y Front Tracking Harness gives you active feedback through the "floating lead connection" allowing you to more easily "feel" your dog's activity at the end of the lead and the Girth Straps will actively tighten if a dog tries to back out of the harness.
Since its initial release and based on customer feed-back we have changed the way the webbing is threaded to make them much easier to adjust, with the fly away ends around the girth you can simply fit and forget.
