Puppia Harness?

I've been wanting to try this harness for awhile. I even ordered one from the local doggie store (you know support local businesses and all that), BUT they didn't get their act together and it never got ordered. So now I am looking to order one on-line. Is this a new style? http://www.puppiaworld.com/shop/step1.php?number=617

I remember Julia saying she didn't like the position of the D rings on the back, but that was a different design-I think. What do you guys think about this one? I love that it comes in guy colors! Also it looks like the ring is up closer to the neck so it might work better under a coat. But then again is it as safe if you are attaching it to a safety restraint in the car?
Also, I could use some help with sizing if y'all don't mind? I measured Rufus and his neck is 13 inchs, but the widest part of his chest is only 16 inches and then he weighs about 13.4 pounds! That makes him either a medium or a large??

Christy, my girls have Puppia harnesses. They are the "orginal" style I suppose. I really like them for use in the car but I don't use them for walks. They tend to mat the hair on their chests. When I bought them, I was told they run small and they do. 16lb. Sedona wears a large and 10lb McKenna wears a medium. I like they way they don't fit tightly under the front legs (arms).

Christy,

I have Puppia halters and have used them since Sophie and Gabriel were puppies and I just love them!! What's nice about some dog clothes now is that they have a slit in the back that allows the D ring to pull through.

Sophie is 12 lbs and Gabreil is 14 lbs..they both wear size meduim
(BTW Puppia makes lots of different patterns and colors) You just need to check around for the best price..

Oliver has the camo one and loves it!!!
The sizes run a little off so I had to exchange it but they were good about it.If you are in the city I know a few stores in SF that always have them in stock.

Sally,((Oliver)) Comet and Pennie too!
The best things in life are not things!

Kubrick wears the orange one (it goes really well with his colors ) and he wears a medium (he's now close to 12lbs). I love it and so does he but he hates putting it on as it goes over the head (he doesn't mind it at all once it's on, though). We use it every day on walks.

You guys are great! I was wondering about the sizing. I find it different on some sites I've looked at. I'm thinking a med most likely. That would match up size-wise better with his measurements. I don't think you would pick out a harness pound-wise since a Hav is longer than say a pug, so they could have more weight distributed through the back end of the dog.

Sally what size does Oliver wear and how big is he?

Havee wears the original harness in red. He wears a size medium and he's about 11 lbs. It is so soft and seems comfortable. They look so darn cute in them too! Here's a picture of him in it lounging on the deck down the shore.

Oh, those are very cool. We've got some cheese ball thing from Wal-mart, that is like an oragami project, trying to get it on.
