How do I put on the harness?
The harness is VERY easy to put on. The most important part is to ensure that the side with the handle goes on the back.
We recommend unbuckling all three buckles so that the harness can be put on (and removed) without needing to go over the dog's head. When putting the harness on, secure the neck area first, then the chest.
If you're putting the harness on your dog for the first time, you'll want to adjust the straps so that the harness fits snugly on your dog. We recommend putting the harness on the dog first to see how much adjustment is needed, then removing the harness and adjusting it most of the way while it's not on the dog. Make adjustments in roughly equal amounts on each side of the harness. Fine-tuning the fit to get it perfect can be done while the harness is on your dog. You'll know the fit is right when the harness feels snug (doesn't move around) and you can fit two fingers in between the dog and the harness.
What can I do with the excess strap?
If you have the harness adjusted to a tighter setting, you will likely have a good amount of strap at the end. Not to worry! There are pockets on the chest side of the harness where each strap comes out of where the excess strap can be tucked. If you have the harness on a very tight setting and there is a lot of extra strap, you should be able to fold the excess strap over and still fit it in the pockets.
