    Hi
    just a quick question that i was wondering about, how tight should a harness be on your dog. With the harness on my dog, i get get 2 fingers underneath it comfortable between the strap and the dog, does it need to be tighter, (i have a puppia harness) or is this ok,
    many thanks

    I have collars much looser than harnesses. Collar at least 4 fingers (but there are nto used for attaching the lead, just for ID).

    The harness is 2 fingers worth the way I do it
