My dog is between sizes. He is right at 32 inches. Do I get the M or L/XL for him?

Asked by: Sleepyten
Based on your dogs measurements, we would recommend the L/XL size in the Approach Dog Pack.

My dog is 31 inches.  It says that I should go with medium.  However, he is not shaped like a regular dog.  After his ribcage he stays the same size.  So I wonder about the back strap.  Is it also going to be 31 inches?

Asked by: Lovemytraildog
Based on the information you provided, the Approach Dog Pack in a medium should be a good fit. The belly band on the pack has a very wide adjustment range.

How do I place it on the dog? I do not see a clasp in front. The head and front legs go through the loop? Can any one show a picture?

Asked by: Womankind
​We do not have that information available. We encourage you to contact the vendor Ruffwear.
