The length of the Second Skin™ Harness (including the tug loop) is about the same as the length of a regular x-back harness. But unlike an x-back harness, our Second Skin™ Harness will relieve the pressure off the dog’s hips. Unlike other "short" harnesses the pull force here is evenly distributed and comes both from the top and the underside of the harness.
This soft harness is an ideal harness for short haired dogs and for dogs suffering from rubs from other harnesses.
The Second Skin Harness was not designed to withstand the abuse of "crazy" sled dog teams.
For proper harness fit measure the dog's neck circumference halfway between the usual collar position and shoulder blades. Not sure about size? Go by the weight of your dog.
