Perfect Fit Modular Fleece-Lined Dog Harness: Part 1 - Girth Strap

Perfect Fit Modular Fleece-Lined Dog Harness: Part 1 - Girth Strap

 

$13.99 - $21.99

Voted #1 Harness by the Whole Dog Journal in 2017 and 2018!

Made in England, the Perfect Fit is a modular system which allows you to create a fleece-lined harness that is perfectly fitted to your dog. A Perfect Fit Harness is constructed from 3 individual pieces—top, front, and girth—which clip together to make a complete harness. Because you can pick a different size for each piece, you can fit ALL sizes and shapes of dogs, even "tripawd" dogs who have lost a front limb. If you have a puppy, you can order an extra piece in a different size to accommodate his growth. 

The Perfect Fit is designed to distribute the weight of the dog evenly over the harness to help reduce rubbing and friction. Besides the D-ring on the top piece, there is a D-ring on the front piece so that you can use a double-ended leash, and have two points of connection, to improve "steering" and distribute any pulling force more evenly. The harness is NOT designed for the front D-ring to be used on its own. 

Step 1: Select Your Girth Strap

There are three widths of webbing in the Perfect Fit system with appropriately sized buckles and clips. Within each size of webbing, there are different sizes of girth pieces. Look up your dog's girth measurement in the webbing width range that is appropriate for your dog based on his size and whether he is a strong puller. There may be more than one choice of girth strap for your dog, so also consult the Perfect Fit Harness Selection Guide for girth size recommendations for different breeds and types of dogs. If the breed chart recommends one size up from your dog's girth measurement, we recommend going with the larger girth strap to ensure there is enough fleece padding on the strap to protect your dog's skin.

The Next Step

Once you have selected your girth strap, you need to select a front piece and a top piece to complete your Perfect Fit Harness.

Using a flexible measuring tape, measure snugly about 2" behind your dog’s front legs all the way around him. You are measuring the circumference of his body, the girth, like measuring a person for a belt. Be sure that your dog is standing squarely.

There are three widths of webbing in the Perfect Fit system with appropriately sized buckles and clips. Within each size of webbing, there are different sizes of girth pieces. Look up your dog's girth measurement in the webbing width range that is appropriate for your dog based on his size and whether he is a strong puller. There may be more than one choice of girth strap for your dog, so also consult the Perfect Fit Harness Selection Guide for girth size recommendations for different breeds and types of dogs.

To make an exchange or accept a return, we require that the harness piece be in the same pristine condition as when it arrived with you.

We understand that when you try the harness on your dog and adjust it, the harness pieces may get a little hairy. But if the harness has been worn for more than just a proper fitting, or is in a different condition then when you received it, we will NOT be able to make a free exchange or give a full credit for a return.

  • Returned harness pieces that require more cleaning than using a lint brush to remove a little bit of hair are subject to a 30% restocking fee.
  • Returned harness pieces that are damaged or worn are subject to a 50% restocking fee.

Before you return a harness piece, we recommend watching the Measuring & Sizing video to ensure that you have adjusted the harness correctly.

If you live in the USA and are making an exchange, you will pay for the return shipping to our offices and Clean Run will pay the shipping cost to send the new size back to you.
