    You've got in on correctly, but it might be a little high in the chest and too tight. I make sure I can stick three fingers in the back or front. I see skin bunches in your pic.

    This is mine is his.

    @KimDe Thank you, I did buy one size up just in case she out grew this one. Do you think I should adjust the pink one to sit lower on the chest or do you think its entirely too small?

    @sisters3 - after fixing the harness fitting if Joey still doesnt like it dont panic! Izzy hides from me every time I grab hers! She hates it!

    I would adjust it so it is looser in front and under the belly (3 finger rule). The front of mine sits just in front and above his shoulder sockets. Just make sure it is away from the throat. That's the way that I do it and hopefully it is right. He has always stayed in it, but he isn't much of an escape artist.

    hi Sue, I agree with Christine, Kim and others, the harness does look a little tight or snug, especially under the belly. It looks like the strap is pushing up on his tummy, there shouldn't be an indent, just loosen the strap a little. The chest strap also looks a little snug and sitting too high, you can also loosen and adjust this strap, and it should be laying more across his chest rather than on his neck. How much does Joey weigh, and which size of harness did you buy? My guys weigh about 48 lbs and I bought them a Size 1 harness, and they fit very well. How long have had the harness, and how many times has she worn it? My guys didn't like it at first, but with continued wear they got used to it. I use the harnesses for mostly long walks, and use their collars for potty breaks, and when we go months car.

    It does look tight across her chest, and don't worry about them running… Wally goes ballistic and Willow just hides. NORMAL bulldog reactions…

    @Vikinggirl Ohhhhhhh, this is GREAT information, thank you!! Joey weighs just about 47#, the pink one she is wearing is size 0 and I just bought a size 1, so.......................guess she should being starting the size 1. I've been using it off and on for a month or so. I really need to get her away from collar for walks, potty breaks ok, but walks she really needs the harness. OMH thank you very very much, I will try the red size 1 on her and post pic for fit. This really helps put into perspective.

    THANK GOODNESS, when Joey started running away from me I was like "whaaaaaaaaaaaat ???" She loves going on walks and car rides so I was shocked when she ran away from me when I grabbed the harness. Onto the bigger size. Thanks!
