This harness extends only partway down the back to accommodate the steeper pull angle associated with biking and scootering.
What happens if a completed and received harness does not fit right? For Custom Fit Harnesses, if it is a mistake that we made, i.e. we cut it short or long vs. the measurements provided to us, then of course we will make you a new one free of charge and expedite it to you. If it is a measurement error or your part, then for one time only for each specific dog, we will make a new one for you at half price plus shipping.
Regarding Lead Time for CUSTOM FIT Harnesses: Production times will vary in and out of season due to demand. Delivery times vary becasue orders come in unevenly, 60 harnesses one week and 150 the next. There are a limited number of custom harness sewers available; however, we do have several and we have the best! For our CUSTOM FIT Harnesses, depending on the time of the year, the lead time is 4 - 6 weeks during off-season and 6 - 10 weeks during season. In most cases you will receive your harness in the middle of that range, but it may take as long as the outside of that range. CAN'T WAIT for a Custom Fit Harness? Although they are worth the wait, if you do not want to or cannot wait, please consider our Ready-To-Go Urban Trail (Half-Back/Shorty) Harness. It is constructed using the exact same signature design as our Custom Urban Trail Harness, and comes in 4 standard sizes, with each being adjustable at the Neck and Girth, and are in-stock and ready for fast shipment!
