New Harness Co,

One of our trainers has started a new harness company. I can't vouch for it personally as I haven't tried it, but it looks good.

Looks like a comfy harness for a short haired dog... It would mat mine like crazy, unfortunately.

For a wriggly squirmy long-haired pup, this is my go-to solution. It's called the Tre Ponte harness. It comes in color choices and is made of smooth leather. There is less matting, and it is a safer solution in case of a fall. When I was training Tux on the higher obstacles, he slipped once and I had the perfect harness to catch him. I am sure there are other harnesses like this one, but the smoothness of the Italian leather minimizes matting. It is a high quality harness and seems like it will last forever.

Putting it on is a breeze. I say "sit up" (he knows he gets a treat after). I slip the harness under his front paws as he is sitting up. I drop his treat on the floor and as he is getting his treat I clip it closed. It takes about 3 seconds! I attached photos to demonstrate. Now I don't even need to say "sit up". He sees the harness and assumes the position. LOL

I am also a fan of the tre ponte harness, which I first heard about on this forum. For awhile, you could only order in US from one internet provider, who was great...personal response to some questions I sent. I now have two, one leather like Tux and one mesh...we use the mesh when hair is short and leather when it gets long before groomer visit. Both versions I ordered are adjustable although they sell one version that is not adjustable, but sized.

I have started seeing a knock off version at local chain pet stores, so the european design appears to be picking up interest. I am a harness fanantic, having had a number of types before I settled on this design as what works best for me and Cassie's "design". Some were just too hard for me to slip on and I don't like front ones as she doesn't pull so not needed and they are awkward for me having always used ones that attach at shoulder. I also have tried to stay away from ones that seem too heavy for our little dogs, which the harness in the link above looks like...but i am always interested in new designs!
