Harness That Doesn't Make Knots

Are there any harnesses that do not result in mats after a walk around the block? Please give me suggestions as the knots are becoming a problem. Thanks!

good for you for using a harness. I'm not aware of any that don't. Comes with the territory of being safe. lol

I purchased these cotton cloth harnesses that attached with velcro and my guys have never matted from them.
check out SmallDogClothing.com

Oh, Laurie, those harnesses are just too cute! Thanks for the site. Is there one in particular that you've used & liked? The hair doesn't get in the velcro? Need a new harness (outgrown last one) and one of these may just be it.

Yes, I have one and it's great. Unfortunately i can't use it any more because Django has put on a few pounds. It's a rolled leather harness I bought on line. www.petego.com. I buy Djangos rolled collars from them as well and have never had a single matt in 9 years.

I haven't met a harness that doesn't mat at the very least in the armpit area, but I'm keeping an eye on this thread

Any rolled harness from that website wouldn't cause any matts or is there a specific one? It didn't cause any matts at all on Django? That's perfect!! We have one harness but Aria gets a lot of matts from it so I'm super happy for Lauri's and your responses on this thread. Thank you!

I'm watching, too. But, aren't Django and Laurie's dogs all cut shorter? I think that makes it less likely to mat than a dog in full coat... If you've used them (either the fabric or the rolled leather, ) how do you measure them for the right size?

Good point, Sheri. Kallie's in full blowing coat! So I have to be extra careful or it's Mat City!

djangos hair length varies from 1/2" to 2 1/2" depending on the season. I have never had a problem with matts with these rolled collars and harneses
