Not every dog will fit into our standard range of harnesses and this is often the case with crossbreeds or dogs that are bigger than the breed standard. We know some harness manufacturers offer alternative ranges with more adjustment than their standard product, but here at Xtra Dog we know that this may not necessarily prove to be the perfect alternative which is why we offer a custom-made harness in our walking range.
Is a custom fit harness right for my dog?
We can make custom-fit harnesses for any breed, shape and type of dog which is ideal for cross-breeds or dogs who don’t fit the mould! However, custom-fit harnesses are not suitable for dogs under 18 months of age because they haven’t finished growing. We can’t make harnesses based on estimates of how big a dog might be when fully grown.
How does this work? You measure your dog according to our sizing guide then enter your measurements when you order the product.
How long will my harness take to be made?
All of our custom-fit harnesses are made in the USA. We aim to get your custom-fit walking harness to you as soon as possible (sometimes even within 3-6 weeks), but during busy periods this may take up to sixteen weeks of the order being placed and paid for. If there are any queries regarding your measurements then this can cause further delays. If you have any queries about current timescales, please contact us.
Remember, this harness is made especially for your dog, so measure him or her carefully as we are not able to accept returns of custom fits. We advise measuring your dog three times. Get someone to help to make sure the dog is standing straight. Remember to measure ‘dog not fur’, especially when you are measuring long-haired breeds.
