Which harness do you use on your Havanese?

Our groomer said that the harness we currently use on our 2 Havanese dogs is the main problem for their chest and under legs mats, which are extremely hard to comb out and groom, without shaving it off.

I'm just curious to see what harness do you use on your Havanese that doesn't cause mats.

I use a SENSE-ible No Pull Harness for Leo. I only put it on for walks and comb thoroughly as soon as I take it off after the walk. I use a Vest Harness in the car and again do a quick comb through when I take it off before we get out of the car. This takes less than a minute and detangles any hair that's trying to knot up.

I use this one for Whimsy....We don't walk a lot so I don't worry about matting because it isn't on her for that long. She doesn't wear anything when we play in my fenced in backyard. I'm happy with it.

I like this harness. It's mesh, very lightweight, and it has a double D-ring in the back. Zoey's been able to back out of some harnesses, but she doesn't with this one.

Right now I being using the "Buddy Belts" ( http://www.funnyfur.com/buddy-belt-d...d-rattler.aspx ) but thinking about getting another style but still haven't decided which one...eyeing the Petco one. My biggest concern is the matting under the harness.

As a little puppy Cannoli had the no-sensible but she didn't seem to care for it or maybe it was b/c she was a pup.

I like them too but I'm thinking maybe the mesh will "feel" nicer to them. I guess I have to go to Petco and have them try'em out and see if they seem more comfortable in them. The BB are good less matting.

That's the harness I just bought for Maccabee -- on clearance for $4!
