How to measure: to find the perfect fit of a Buddy Belt...
Wrap a measuring tape all the way around the chest (girth) of your dog. The chest (girth) is the area right below their two front legs (see photo below). An ideal fit will allow enough room for a finger or two to slip underneath harness when you give a light tug up on the sliding o-ring. Measure in inches. If in-between, go up one size. Fit should be snug but yet not too loose to allow dog to wiggle free of the Buddy Belt harness. It is best that size should not be too large once it is worn and softened so that pet does not wiggle or escape out of their harness.
How to use your Buddy Belt:
1. To fit, place BB on ground topside down and position front legs through holes.
The buckle always goes to your pet's left paw.
2. Wrap BB around body and fasten it between your pet's shoulder blades. An
ideal fit will allow enough room for a finger or two to slip underneath when you
give a light tug up on the sliding o-ring.
3. When buckled, the BB should comfortably fasten at one of the three middle
holes. There are five holes in total. If your dog is still growing the tightest hole is
acceptable, as long as the BB still fits snugly. If your dog is wearing the BB over
top of a sweater, the end hole is acceptable.
4. Lastly, attach leash to sliding o-ring. Pet tags can also be attached here
BUDDY BELTS have a unique patented design that makes it easy to use. It has only one buckle and slips on in seconds. The most important aspect of the design is the reduction of pressure on the throat or trachea. Pressure on this area over time has been shown to cause problems. In some cases, this pressure can significantly affect your dog's health and, potentially, its lifespan.
BUDDY BELT is a premium product. Before discovering the BUDDY BELT, several users said they spent a lot more money buying collars and harnesses that simply did not work, or that were difficult to use. BUDDY BELT'S value lies in its design, fabrication and function and the fact that it provides better health and well being for both the dog and the owner. Save a neck!
BUDDY BELTS harnesses are made of leather. Before intial wear, it is highly recommended that you treat your BUDDY BELT harness with a quality water and stain repellent product. If your BUDDY BELT harness gets wet, allow it to dry flat at room temperature. Never put leather in the dryer. For suede BUDDY BELTS, buff with a soft towel to restore the surface. Try to avoid products with silicone and/or wax as these ingredients tend to break down the natural oils in leather. Apply product initially and every two to three months with regular wear. Please note that the BUDDY BELT harnesses are not intended for swimming or other full water play. To clean your BUDDY BELT, gently blot liquid stains with a damp cloth. In the event of salt stains from winter wear, wipe Buddy Belt harnesses with a clean, damp cloth after each wear and dry naturally. Re-treat as necessary.
The BUDDY BELT can be worn over top of a sweater or coat, provided that you have enough room for adjustibility. Another option is to purchase a second BUDDY BELT, one size larger, just for winter. There are some coats/sweaters that include a hole at the top in order to accommodate BUDDY BELT so it can be worn underneath.
