How to measure a dog?

Some tips to help you measure your dog and adjust the size correctly.

Norwegian-style harness

This type of recreational harness grants your dog full freedom of movement. The chest belt in our model is sewn in at such an angle that it disperses the pressure on the chest protecting the throat. Both straps are adjustable so you can fit them to your dog’s physique (also if its wearing a winter sweater). None of the straps touch the armpits and the buckle is placed away from the elbow. The shape of the handle enables you to hold the dog back quickly if it’s necessary.

Both the horizontal and the vertical belts are adjustable. To measure your dog’s girth correctly use a soft tape measure. Wrap it around the chest in its broadest place. Just to make sure, you can also measure the front belt (chest width).

You should add a couple extra centimetres to the girth just to make sure your dog has a freedom of movement. If your pupper is in between sizes, please contact us at hello@warsawdog.com

Guard harness

This universal harness model will ensure your dog comfort and safety. Its construction prevents breaking free which is especially important for dogs who tend to get frightened easily. The straps are distant from the armpits so they do not pinch or chafe sensitive skin. Guard-type harnesses are great for a quick trot around the block as well as for those long weekend hikes.

In order to choose a correct harness size you need to measure your dog with a soft tape measure:

Shoulder girth (lower neck). Create a loop using the tape measure. It should start and end at the base of the neck – at the point between withers and go through the prosternum (it’s the first hoop from the head on the picture).

Chest girth. To measure the chest lead the tape measure around your pup’s chest in its broadest point.

To be extra sure you can also measure the upper (back) strap and the lower (belly) strap.

You should add a couple extra centimetres to the girth just to make sure your dog has a freedom of movement. If your pupper is in between sizes, please contact us at hello@warsawdog.com

Easy-walk harness

A training harness that supports your dog in learning how not to pull during walks. If you usually fly through the air on the other side of the leash and most you can see of your dog is the tip of its tail, this product may be just the right one for you

Measurement points:

1. This time we measure the chest girth vertically, just behind the upper arms (in the armpits). We check the result with the range from the table to chose a size: S, M, L.

2. We measure the length of the front belt at the level of the armpits. From one armpit to the other we don’t leave out any space. The Easy walk harness type, unlike the Norwegian type, is not separated from the armpits.

DURAFLEX ® buckle collar

A classic that never grows old! Here is the standard collar type with a latch buckle. The buckle is profiled so it lines up perfectly with the dog’s neck. It’s available in several widths and sizes – we thought of all doggies’ body types.

Measure your dog in a broadest point on its neck where the collar will be.


Half choke collar

This collar type is dedicated to dogs whose necks are bigger than their heads or simply those who are escape masters and can free themselves from a standard buckle collar. The half choke collar prevents your dog from pulling its head out – with the tug of the leash the circumference of the collar is reduced to the previously set limit. The clenching element is the couple extra centimetres or the tape that extend the collar. When you tug the leash, the circumference of the collar gets smaller up to the set limit.

Measure your dog at the base of its head in its widest point. The collar should be loose enough to put it through the head but not so it could slide off. At the tug of a leash the collar’s circumference will be reduced to the set point. The half choke collars are used for dogs whose necks are wider than their heads which makes it easy for them to free themselves from traditional collars.

When not tugged, the collar should rest loosely on the neck.

Our intention for the half choke collar is not for it to be a behaviour correction device. It is supposed to ensure your dog safety.

Half choke martingale collar

This collar type is dedicated to dogs whose necks are bigger than their heads or simply those who are escape masters and can free themselves from a standard buckle collar. The half choke martingale collar ensures your dog’s safety by reducing its circumference the to the previously set limit with the tug of the leash. The clenching element here is an extra loop that the leash is attached to. The martingale [mɑːtɪŋgeɪl] type is much lighter than a regular half choke collar so we recommend it for those sensitive greyhounds’ necks.
