You could try sending the company an email and ask, or post on their Facebook page. The way it is now is more confusing, IMO, it used to be really easy to figure out what size to buy even if your dog wasn't fully mature yet. With the "new" sizing I would have bought Halo a medium and Keefer a large, even though they both fit perfectly in the smaller sizes which have plenty of capacity for our needs.

I am going to order backpacks today. It is 1st day of Spring and nice out . I am itching for it to be June 2nd. I think I 'll wave bye bye to my little ones and be throwing all of our roll out gear in the truck before the bus turns off my block lol . I'll have from 7:30 to 3:30 free every week day! I adore my kids , but I have been struggling to get back in shape and lose the last 25 pounds of baby weight ( because , you know , the baby is like almost 3 years old lol ) . 7 years home with babies , I am ready to have just the dogs during the day for a while lol
Alvin is finally ONE so I feel good about some hard exercise besides tug ( I was worried about his hips but they seem pretty good now ). The boy needs some serious workouts ..78 pounds with the zoomies in a 3 bedroom colonial is getting old I'll be taking my 90 pound boxer mix with us too..looks like he is a large and my GSD a medium.
Spring fever !!

String is fine - just wrap it around him, mark the spot, and then hold it against your metal tape measure.

Yeah i think so. Just behind the front legs.

I only have a metal tape measure lol I will have to get some string and do it that way. I am mostly looking for a cool backpack for day hikes
To measure girth do I just measure around the deepest part of his chest?

|Sri||I just measured Frodo today for a harness as well! He is a bit less than 31 inches in girth. Between 25 - 26" in height.|

|Cassidy's Mom||Girth measurement is the most important criteria to determine fit, so start there. My guess is that he could wear either a medium or a large, but it just takes a few seconds to wrap a tape measure around his chest.|

|Oisin's Aoire||Thanks! I am going to check out ruffwear I have to measure his girth..his chest is pretty narrow at the bottom of it right now..I think he may fill out quite a bit still. I suppose if I go with a size and he outgrows it I can just sell it. He is 12 months and 76 pounds at the vet 2 weeks ago.|

Depend on the lines. Otto is all DDR, he outgrew a harness and a 24" collar at 4 y/o
Venus is 14 months - mostly WGW, 1/4 american & a dash of DDR to give her a sense of humor. She's still in the same harness I bought her at 6 months and she's probably not going to outgrow it.
