Great feedback! Lincoln is only 5 months old and still growing, so I guess his hair isn't *that* long. I also don't plan to keep him in a long coat, but rather a longer puppy cut. (Don't really want to cut his hair until his coat change though).
I tried both styles, and felt that the neck on the original was too tight despite the rest of it fitting well. I could see he wasn't comfortable with the over the head style. I do have a Comfort Flex that I just got, which is more of a strap/over-the-head style, but the strap in the front over the chest/legs is just a tad too loose. So needed another harness for the interim.
He had been doing pretty good at loose leash walking, or at least, when I'd stop if he pulled, he'd self-correct. But we got a bit off practice with it the last couple of weeks, so I need to go back to basics with him on that. I also need to start working on "heel" or walking next to me.
So I guess for now, given he's still growing and working on leash walking, the vest step-in harness may be the best of the 2 until he grows more into his Comfort Flex harness.
