How to Ensure the Perfect Fit For Dog Coats & Harnesses
Posted by Brooke Spater on 4th December 2018
Your Kurgo package arrives on a brisk November afternoon and you're very excited and eager to try out your dog's new coat on your daily walk together. The only problem? The coat is so snug that it would be a better fit for your neighbor's cat. Nothing is worse than when your enthusiasm immediately fades and is quickly replaced with the dread of having to deal with a return. Our goal is to ensure you don't find yourself in that position. Even though you'd describe your beagle as a medium-sized dog, all of the early morning running she has been doing with you may translate into a size small being the best fit for her frame. We strongly recommend taking the time to carefully measure your dog before you place your order. In less than two minutes, our co-founder Gordie explains how to properly measure for coats, harnesses, and collars in the video below. Or, if you want to talk to a human being, just call us!

Trying to decide which is better for your dog—a collar or a harness? The short answer is: You may need both. It really depends on the size and temperament of your dog and what it takes to maintain safe control of him.
A dog barking in the backseat of the car can be a real nuisance—and even a hazard—for human drivers. But for dogs, barking is a way of communicating. In order to put the kibosh on all that annoying barking, we first need to understand why our furry companion is barking to begin with.
