I won't give exact measurements, this is a custom pack for your dog.

To make the harness that will hold the pack:
  • Cut three nylon straps with the following lengths:
    1. Measure the circumference below your dog's neck, add 6".
    2. Measure the circumference of your dog's waist, add 6".
    3. Measure the length between the dog's waist and shoulders, add 12".
  • Using the lighter, melt the ends of the straps so that they don't fray.
  • Sew the pieces together to create a harness (see photo). Use a buckle for the chest strap and Velcro or another buckle for the waist strap.
  • The straps don't need to be tight, weight in each side of the pack will hold it on the dog.
  • If in doubt, make the straps longer, they can always be shortened later.
