Another harness thread..
I know we have had lots of harness threads, but I still haven't found the right one and am about to return the latest one, the walkinsync which several people have recommended and is a very nice harness if it works for you. I contacted them to make sure I had the right size before I ordered, but it just isn't the right one for me although I think fit except for head seems ok.
My problem with it is Cassie isn't a puller so I don't need a front attached harness and she is fixated with chewing on the front hook which hangs in front and although they advertise that once they learn to walk without pulling you can use it as a rear attached...the problem is there is no rear hook and you have to use the ring that holds the straps together which means the leash attachment is cutting into her back directly. It really is well made, clicks together well, although the part you have to stick her head thru is tight. Also, I feel like the webs are thicker than a small dog needs and might rub. Quite expensive so it is being returned to amazon.
The gooby mesh comfort x is ok, and I use it, but the mesh seems like it covers a lot of fur, and I was hoping to find a lighter, thinner one for summer.
I have a stepin and roman harness (over the head, difficult to put on); step in looks like it restricts her legs too much. I think one is a curlie which has good reviews but just doesn't work the way I want. (I also have a solvit car harness, but too heavy for regular walking.)
That is five harnesses I have tried, with the gooby being ok, but a lot of mesh on a little body in summer.
Have I missed any?
