When should I order a custom weight pull harness?

    Rhys will be a year old the end of this month and I'm curious if I should wait or go ahead and measure him for a custom harness. His practice harness is too big and I don't like pulling much more than some drag weight behind it; I don't want to mess up his form with an poor fit. Don't get me wrong, it's all right for drag work, but definitely not a drag sled or any serious weight.

    I've seen him around several of his male relatives. He's nearly their size now and I think he's nearly done growing. Sure, his musculature will change with work, but I think he's about as big as he's going to get.

    Thoughts?

    I'd say you're safe but the possibility does exist he could outgrow it

    I'd get it. A good harness isn't that expensive, and you want him to develop good pulling form.
