Hi all. I have been using a regular fabric collar when I take our 9 month old Hav outside for potty. Live in California and there are coyotes here, so he is never off leash outside. The fabric collar is fine and taken off when he is inside. We go on walks once or twice a day, and I have using the Curli Vest, chosen to prevent any risk of trachea injury that could occur with a regular collar. The vest is cute, easy to put on, and soft. The BIG problem with the vest is he became very matted in that area where his fur must rub on the vest. Groomer was able to fix the mats, but suggested I use something else. I have been seeing verious types of halters on the web. Wonder Walker Body Halter, Petco Easy Step-In Sport Dog harness, Buddy Belt to name a few. Some have the lead clipped on the shoulder and others have lead on front chest. Please let me know what works for you in terms of not pulling and also less likely to cause mats. Thanks!
