Boo has never slipped out of his Buddy Belt. The key is to get the right size. They come in half and whole sizes. it's best if you can try one on in a pet shop. Boo is 15 pounds, and wears size 5. He has over a dozen Buddy Belts and leashes. They last forever, and we are addicted to them. His newest Buddy Belt is blue denim leather with a matching lead. Very cool.

If you do not want your dog to get away from you on leash, it is best to use a leash with a trigger clip vs. a bolt clip. The bolt clips weaken over time and your dog can escape. So if you donít want your dog to escape, please consider this also. If you want to continue to use a bolt clip, please inspect them regularly and replace them when they start acting up. Both of my dogs have gotten away from me due to bolt clips and I will never use one again.

I saw that blue Jean leather color, it would look fantastic with Sundanceís coat! I think that might be my next harness. I donít even need a harness right now but itís a good price for leather, so itís going on my list. Iíve come across some inexpensive rolled leather harnesses but the colors arenít as pretty. Most of the leather harnesses that are cute are over $100 and donít look very comfortable.

It also seems in general to allow greater shoulder movement than many others I have tried, yet still remain escape proof and protect the trachea. They are more expensive but great quality and cannot imagine them wearing out.

Thanks guys. I'm going to measure Willow as soon as she's done sleeping. She's really tiny and I have trouble finding things small enough. Going to stores is kind of out of the question for a while.
