Walk Your Dog With Love is the easiest harness in the world to adjust and put on. When you get your new harness you’ll receive a link to this video; watch it again, then. If you’re old-school, there are written directions with diagrams below it.
Please note the "Scooch & Set" for proper fit. This is very important.
Once you find where you like the slidy side, "Set" it as described in the video. Now your harness is custom-tailored for your dog.
We want it "right" not "tight". Right means snug, 2-4 fingers can fit under the harness at the shoulder (where the reflective material is). See this on the video.
Because the harness pulls from one side, it 'bows' and 'gaps', and it doesn't look even. This is normal, and how it is meant to look.
The 'gap', when the harness 'bows' out, is part of the design. Don't tighten the harness because of it. The material, and your dog, are flexible; it isn't supposed to fit like skin-tight spandex.
You also might need to adjust it a few times to get it "just right".
PUTTING ON THE HARNESS IS SIMPLE
The label goes on the outside
The ring goes in the front
The strap goes behind the front legs
Click the buckle
ADJUSTING THE HARNESS IS SIMPLE TOO
It should be snug, yet not so tight it bites your dog. 2-4 fingers tightness is about right
9 out of 10 dogs prefer you take the harness off them to adjust it
During the next several walks, adjust the harness to what works best for both of you; looser around the body, tighter on the chest, maybe vice-versa. Let common sense guide you
CHEST SIZE ADJUSTMENT BOTH STRAPS MUST BE ADJUSTED EQUALLY AND REMAIN EQUAL LENGTHS
this is the part that sits centered on your dog's chest.
push both straps thru adjuster - at the same time
pull straps flat again
BELLY SIZE ADJUSTMENT
adjusts like a knapsack strap
push webbing up thru adjuster
pull webbing flat again
SIDE WIDTH ADJUSTMENT
The label side is sewn, the other side is 'slidey'
'scooch' BOTH sides up, to just above the shoulders
you might need to readjust the belly strap now
Now set the slidey side - as noted in the video - so it is perfect for your dog
