How Do I Measure My Dog For The Mighty Paw Harnesses?
You'll always want to measure around your dog's neck and chest. Simply use the dotted lines in the measurement graphics we include with all of our harness product listings as reference points. That's where you'll want to measure. It's easiest to use a soft measuring tape on your pup, but you can also get accurate measurements using a piece of string or ribbon and a ruler. Place the string around your dog's neck and the chest area right behind the front legs, respectively. Use your fingers to mark the length on the string, then place that amount of string along a ruler to get its length in inches.
Are The Harnesses Padded To Avoid Chafing?
Yes, all our harnesses are padded.
Can I Add Tags To The Harnesses?
Yes, all our harnesses come with D-rings for tags. Tip: Use our dog tag carabiner clips to easily attach your pup's tags and switch them out between their different collars and harnesses.
Do The Harnesses Fit Toy Size Dogs?
Unfortunately, our harnesses don’t fit toy size dogs. Our smallest size harness is the X-Small Sport Dog Harness with the following sizing: Neck 12”, Chest 17”-20”.
Can The Harnesses Be Washed? How?
Yes, our harnesses can be washed either by hand or in the washing machine on the cold and gentle cycle. We recommend air-drying them as opposed to using a dryer.
Do The Harnesses Have To Be Pulled Over A Dog’s Head?
No, they don’t! Our Sport Harnesses have quick release buckles to help you easily put them on and around your dog’s neck instead of pulling them over the head.
Are The Leash Attachments Metal?
Yes, all the hardware is made of metal.
Do The Dog Sport Harnesses Work With The Seat Belts, Or Do You Have To Get The Vehicle Safety Harness?
The Dog Sport Harnesses work with the seat belts. However, our Vehicle Safety Harness is specially designed for your dog’s safety on car rides: We’ve performed in-house force testing, applied reinforced cross-stitching throughout, and used a wider padded chest piece.
How Do I Use The Mighty Paw Martingale Collars?
We carry several different types of Martingale Collars. While they’re made of different materials, the concept is the same for all. They consist of 2 different size loops which help teach polite leash walking and reduce your dog’s pulling on leash. Here’s how it works: Put the Martingale collar up high around your dog’s neck and make sure that the smaller loop sits behind your dog’s ears. Next, clip their leash to the D-ring on the smaller loop. That higher position of the collar on your dog’s neck gives you a lot more control over their head as you’d have with a lower position around your dog’s neck. When your dog pulls, you want to let them know that this behavior is not OK. To do that, give a quick tug on the leash. This tightens the smaller loop the leash is attached to and gives your dog the cue to stop pulling. Remember to release the tension on the leash after you give the tug.
Can The Martingale Collars Be Worn At All Times?
The martingale collar is a training collar and should only be worn during training sessions and walks or when supervised.
