My breeder ordered the harness for me and gave it to me when I picked up Molly. She was 3.4 lbs. then and only 6.5 lbs. now at two years old. We are still using the same harness so I would guess she is an XS size. There is no size tag on it. I think if you use the three measurements they suggest, as well as Zoe's weight, you should be fine. Molly's approximate measurements are 9" for neck, 14" for girth and 4.5 for chest. Hope this helps.

I couldn't use the type of harness where the leash attaches to the front, on the chest. Willow would try and grab the leash or anything that dangles. I couldn't used dog tags on the collar either because they dangled down and she could grab them in her mouth. Such a naughty girl!

Molly was a terrible leash biter when she was a puppy. I could also never leave a collar on her because the tag was always in her mouth. She wore out many ID tags doing this. I finally ended up getting the info embroidered on the collar to solve the problem. Thank God she has outgrown both of these behaviors as she matured.

Yes! I got a collar with a laser engraved clasp just because she would chew up her dangling ID tags!

Ricky never wears a collar unless we are in public walking or training with collar and leash. He doesn't wear any ID tags because we never let him out of our sight. He does have a microchip embedded under the skin.

It is comfortable for him yet does not allow him to slip out of it.

Popi, I am looking for a harness for Tucker that is easier to use than the one I have. I went to the Stibbar site but they don't have any pictures of their harnesses. Weird. Would you post a photo of Ricky's?

Stibbar doesn't make harnesses... Only collars and leashes.

Aha. Well, that certainly explains why I couldn't find them. I wonder what they mean by "harness leashes" then... I wouldn't have though they'd be any different than just a "leash."

What Karen said about Stibbar! They are the Rolls Royce of collars/leashes. We do have a harness that can be used as a car restraint that we purchased at Petco, but YMMV.
