Default Julius K9 sizing

Does anyone here have one? I'm unable to measure graham atm but zooplus are doing a great deal and I've been wanting one for ages.
A lot of people have said a size 2 for a lab.
Considering he is only 6 months, athletic build, what would you go for that he wont grow out of too quickly.

I bought one for Cola a couple of months ago, it would depend on his size/weight.

Cola has a size 0 as she was only around 17kg when I got it, she is now just over 20 and has plenty of growing room still but she is petite and will always be petite I think. She is very lean which is great.Hers will proabably do her when she is fully grown as it is up to 25kg. I think sizing is pretty much spot on, I really liked the ruffwear one but found it to be far too small.

We only use ours for tracking and recently out walking at night as she has been in season so wanted a bit of extra security.

I have a size 1 for Lucan which has plenty of adjustment left. He is a fairly small, adult working bred Lab weighing between 27-28kg. I think their sizing is pretty accurate.

Okay thanks everyone, I decided not to buy one on a whim and to actually measure him but after a hectic weekend I still have not got round to doing it!
Thanks for replies

Hi, I came across this thread when deciding upon which size to get our little Molly. (Age 1) Just thought I'd post my findings in case others are also interested.
I measured her and she came up on the size chart at the upper end of a size 0 or low end of a size 1.

In the end I decided to go for the size 1 in the Julius-k9 IDC Harness as then it gives her extra room for adjustment if she does grow/fill out more. The IDC version is the updated version:-

Main differences between K9-Powerharness (1997) and IDC®-powerharness (2010):

- Reflective chest strap of the IDC®-Powerharness is lower on the chestbone, so it does not put pressure on the neck of the dog

- The strap under the chest of an IDC®-Powerharness is rectangular and sporty, the buckle is now at a higher point of the body, so it doesn't effect the mobility of the front legs

- The saddle part of the IDC®-Powerharness covers a smaller surface on the side of the dog

- The label of the IDC®-Powerharness is fixed diagonally, it gives a better visibility from any angles

- There is a new, safer solution to close the handle of every IDC®-Powerharnesses from 0 size

- There are torch holders on the most practical parts of IDC®-Powerharnesses from 0 size


The harness fits her well and there's loads of adjustment in it so I would say a Size 1 is probably Ideal for most (not puppy) unless your lab is particularly large in which a size 2 would be better.

It's a fantastic harness, amazing quality and so easy to put on and take off. You can get loads of little accessories for it too including and extra strap to go underneath, saddlebags, custom patches etc..
And they come in lots of colours to pick from.

Here's Molly wearing hers on her 1st birthday
