Properly fitting attire is a must for everyone! Measuring around your pet’s neck (for collars) and girth (for harnesses) then adding 5% for comfort is the general rule of thumb. There are many different shapes and sizes of pets and some will be more challenging to fit. We’re always happy to help with any sizing questions you may have! Chat with us or call us at 800-228-9653 M-F, 9am-5pm Eastern.
Products such as harnesses, leashes, martingale collars and other training gear are intended for walking and training only and should not be left on an unattended or unleashed pet. For your pet’s safety we recommend that steps be taken to avoid future chewing incidents. We recommend Fooey®, a highly effective, non-toxic and odorless chew deterrent. Available through pet retail locations, catalogs and online retailers.
LupinePet products are not recommended for tie-out.
Yes! Machine or hand wash with warm (not hot) water and mild soap. No bleach, brighteners or whiteners. Air dry only – do not put them in the dryer. For extreme situations, pre-soaking in an enzymatic cleaner like Nature’s Miracle or Simple Solution may be helpful. When machine washing, put items in a mesh bag or include items in with jeans or other sturdy clothes.
Shampoos and other topical treatments that contain bleaching agents, clarifiers, medicines or other chemicals can cause colors to transfer to your pet’s fur. When washing your pets gear, bathing your pet or applying any of the above, we recommend that their gear be removed until the items and/or your pet’s fur are completely dry.
Unbuckle the clasp on the girth strap. The strap with the D-ring should be on top with the D-ring pointing towards the tail. Place the two adjustable shoulder straps over the dog’s head. Pick up the dogs left front paw and place over the sternum strap, so that the strap passes between the front legs. Adjust and buckle the girth strap, this strap should be supported by the rib cage all the way around. Adjusting the shoulders smaller will shorten the front-to-back length of the harness. Adjust the sternum strap to a comfortably snug fit.
When unbuckled, two openings are created for the paws, with one in each side, the adjustable sternum strap will fall between. Bring the ends up and around the dog’s back and fasten the buckle between the shoulders. Adjust the front and back straps for a secure fit then adjust the sternum strap to a comfortably snug fit.
A Martingale Collar is a dual-action, limited slip collar for walking and training. It is designed for dogs that can easily back out of regular collars (like greyhounds). The LupinePet Martingale Collar is made with an additional sewn-in D-ring so the collar can be used either as a limited-slip collar or as a regular flat collar.

Please Note: Martingale collars are for walking and training only and should never be left on an unattended or unleashed dog.
