Puppy slips out of harness

Hi there, a neighbor of mine just got a very sweet & busy & energetic mini-schnauzer. Since I don't have my Henry anymore I am loving neighbors pups at the moment.

She got a harness but the puppy slips out - there is no haircut yet, it is slippery? Or is the pup too Houdini-active???

I wonder of she should use a collar and a harness??

Any suggestions would be helpful.
She previously had an elderly mini-schnauzer that she inherited from a relative. She's not used to this puppy stuff.

I think a harness that has buckles for size adjustability gives you the most custom fit. Molly’s harness adjusts around her chest as well as near the back of her neck/shoulder area. She can not slip out of it. It is called the Walk In Sync harness.

I have had issues with several harnesses where they can slip out. I hate harnesses that go over the head with all those plastic buckles. I use a Buddy Belt step in harness with a good solid metal buckle. Awesome quality. With the correct size and it in the correct hole, they have never slipped out.

Thank you so much - I'll let her know.
It's been a long time since I've thought about puppy stuff!

I thought my puppy’s harness seemed too tight so I fastened it looser than they did at the store where I bought it. Then she got curious on our walk and backed right out of it. If you can stick a finger or two between the harness and the pup then it’s good, much looser than that and they can back out of them.

My yorkie likes to flop over on his back and has slipped out of a harness from this position as well as by backing out. He has never slipped out of the Buddy Belt. He has managed to slip out of other harnesses even when they appeared snug.

I don't have a buddy belt, but I do have a step in harness that is configured like the buddy belt (but it has adjustment buckles on different sides) and I've never been afraid Perry could back out of it. I do think a lot has to do with how it's adjusted

We never had an escape problem with Puppia Sports mesh harness with velcro. It is so easy put on. The dog steps in the harness. You just have to pull the sides up which attach with velcro on the dogs back. Above the velcro closure is a plastic buckle closure. It's great for puppies because the mesh is so soft.
