I'm looking for a harness that does not cause matting. I know, wishful thinking, right?
Up until recently, I've been using a rolled leather collar to walk Tori. But, have decided it is better for her if I use a harness instead [her coughing has increased and I'm sure her pulling to get at things (squirrels, lizards, blowing leaves, etc.) when on our walks isn't helping at all] I have several harnesses but, they all cause so much matting when I use them to walk her. The nylon step-in seemed to be the best... until yesterday's walk. When we returned home, it was actually stuck in the matt that it had created on her chest and I could not get it off, I eventually ended up cutting the hair to remove it
Since the rolled leather collar wasn't causing much matting, I'm thinking that may be the best type of harness to get. However, I'm not having much luck finding what I want. Rolled leather collars are everywhere, harnesses not so easy to find. I did find this one
but, only the collar portion is rolled and smooth, not the part that goes around the body/chest. And this one
but, I'll be darned if I can figure out what size it comes in (other than "chow" size) or how to order it
There's someone on eBay that has quite a few offered but, they're braided leather and I know those would cause bad matting.
Does anyone know where I can find what I'm looking for?
