I have a Canine Friendly Vest Harness for Lulah, that is great for belting her into the car when we go somewhere, but horrible for walking.
I've been looking into other options for a walking harness, and came across the Curli harness. I remember seeing this harness mentioned on the forum before.
For those of you who have one, what do you think about it? Does it cause mats? Is it comfortable? Is it worth buying?
Also, how is the sizing? Do they fit large or small, or pretty accurate? If I do order one, should I lean towards the smaller size or a larger size according to her measurements?
If anyone in Canada ordered one of these harness, which site did you order it from?
Thanks for your thoughts! She mostly is just in our fenced backyard right now because it's almost impossible to walk her in our other harness.
I have the Curli harness, and on a dog in full coat,especially if they get wet AT ALL on the walk, it WILL cause mats. There is just too much surface area not to.
As far as sizing is concerned, I have NO idea what size a puppy would wear. I tried them on Kodi in the store. The fit has to be pretty close, because there is almost no adjustability to the harness. But if it fits well, it is very comfortable for the dog. (except for the matting issue)
If you a re having trouble walking on a harness, though, the Curli is not going to help solve that. If you have trouble with her walking nicely on a leash, I'd go with a front-attach harness. My favorite is the "Sense-ation" or "Sense-ble" harness (two slightly different models, same company). The straps on this one cause less matting than any other harness I've tried, and the front attachment, used correctly, really teaches them not to pull. (If they start to pull, you just stop and stand still. The harness turns them back toward you, at which point, you praise and encourage them back to your side before going on. If you are consistent, they learn very quickly!)
I have tried MANY harnesses, and I keep coming back to these as my favorites.
