Tactical Dog Gear
How tight should a dog harness be?

Both with a collar or for a harness, it should not be too tight and you should have at least two fingers clearance. Both should be handled appropriately. Good training is very important here.

The bust size is measured at the widest point of the chest, directly behind the front legs. To make the dog harness sit comfortably, keep an extra 2 cm (2 fingers). You can read the chest size of your dog when purchasing a relevant dog harness in the size table.

How do I know what size my dog needs?

Measuring is knowing. To make sure that you order the right size for your dog, it is important to measure the animal properly. We are happy to give you tips on how to best measure your pet. Use a tape measure to make sure you have the exact measurements. It is best to measure your pet from a standing position on a stable surface.


A collar is an essential accessory for dogs. For a collar, measure the circumference of the animal's neck. Keep in mind that the collar must be comfortable.

How to determine the right size:

Use a tape measure to measure the neck size of the animal. Measure the circumference of the neck or widest part, close to the shoulders.

A collar should be comfortable at all times. When measuring the neck circumference, place 2 fingers between the neck and the measuring tape to make sure that the collar you purchase will not be too small.


It is important that a harness is a safe and pleasant piece of clothing for your pet. The animal must still have sufficient freedom of movement when wearing the garment. When purchasing a harness, you should measure the neck and chest size of your pet.

For the safety of the animal, a harness or harness hangs at a lower position in the neck than a collar. Therefore, place the tape measure at the top of the sternum and run it up along the shoulder blades to measure a good fit.



Chest size
How to determine the right size:

To measure the circumference of the chest, it is important that you measure the widest part, just behind the shoulders.

For an optimal fit, leave enough slack on the tape measure. When measuring the chest circumference, therefore, place 2 fingers between the chest and the tape measure to make sure that the harness or harness you purchase is not too small.



Back length
How to determine the right size:

Back length is the distance from the neck to the base of the tail. To measure this section, place the beginning of the tape measure at the nape of the neck, then run it down to the part where the tail attaches to the body.

Can my harness go in the washing machine?

Always Prepared harnesses are machine washable, but try to hand wash them first. If you wash in the machine, use only the 'gentle' program WITHOUT spin. DO NOT use cleaners or other solvents such as bleach or degreaser. Use ONLY mild soap.

We recommend that you wash the product by hand with mild soap, rinse well and let it air-dry. Putting it in a washer/dryer can shorten its lifespan.

How does the tactical armor solve the pulling problem?

The front clip changes the point of leverage. The leash is attached to the front of the dog, if they pull it has the effect that the leash gives a tug on their chest to the side, turning the dog towards you and preventing them from moving forward. So when they pull, they flip. And when they turn around, they don't move forward and that's where they want to go and why they pull.
