Are they easy to fit?
Yes. To fit the harness, all you have to do is:
- Undo the buckle on the side of the harness
- Place the neck part over your dog's head (see Pic 1) so the black logo is on the dog's chest (see the Pic showing front view) and the silver d ring lead attachment is on top and at the centre of your dog's shoulders.
- Put one leg through the strap (see Pic 2) and then clip the buckle on the side to secure (Pic 3)
If the harness is too loose or too tight, please adjust the strap until it is tight but comfortable for your dog. As you walk your dog, the harness can move side to side slightly but should not be too loose that it rotates and moves to the side of the body.
