They say that Julius-K9 IDC Power Harnesses are only for working dogs - let me contradict: 

Small dog breeds also deserve the best quality and the trendiest colors, furthermore, they can also be working dogs. Despite they are not conventional physical working dogs, they have a large impact on our lives. They can be a cure for depression and anxiety so IDC Power Harnesses are available for these all-heart little therapy dogs. And using a harness is also good for their neck, since their necks are weaker than big dogs'.

Julius-K9 Harness Sizing - It's never been easier! 

"That's nice that you educate us on sizes..." But where's the answer for the most important question?


Well here's my guide on Julius-K9 Harness Sizing so you can choose the perfect harness for your dog! 

For small canines, who are considerably Baby 1 or Baby 2 sizes, you should put your index- and middle fingers behind their front legs and measure there! It's this easy! 

For dogs who need approximately Mini-Mini or Mini harnesses you should measure 3 fingers behind their front legs.

For bigger dogs, keep a 4-finger from the front legs and you'll be good. 

Although weight is indicated at sizes, the most important thing is the dog's dimensions. 

Please always measure your dog!
