Puppia Harness

For those who use a Puppia harness: is this an over the head type or step in and do they offer both. I can't imagine Colbie sitting still in order to safely put on something over her head.

Thanks.

Ron (and Colbie and Scarlett)

Maccabee quickly outgrew his Puppia harness, as the neck/head opening is not adjustable. Getting the harness over his head is no problem, though. When I pick up his harness or leash, he runs toward me and shoves his head at me. He knows harness = going bye-bye.

I found a wonderful harness at Unleashed (PetCo's boutique store). It is Petco brand, which worried me, but it is now my favorite harness. I described it more fully in the thread "The Ride Home."

i think they only have an over the head type. i wish audrey shoved her head in front of me but she doesn't... still it's still not too hard to get it over her head.

i bought the small and remember she was too small for it even when it was tightened all the way when she was a puppy. She's around 9 lbs. now and the small still fits her but i have to make it as big as possible.

i'm not a huge fan of the harness though since it creates matts.

The Puppia Sports Harness does not go over the head, it has a Velcro closure and adjustable slip buckle that close on the dogs back.
11 lb Piper wears size M




We also like Pinkaholic NY harnesses-they have two Velcro neck and underbelly closures and come in really cute colors/designs. They run small.
9-10 lbs Riley wears M
11 lbs Piper wears L



Here are Piper and Riley in their matching Pinkaholic harness

They're step-in. Ludo's outgrown his xs and I need to order another although I'm finding he actually does fine on a collar/leash. How big is Colby? I could mail you my xs - he won't be using it anymore. (Although I think Ludo is very small for his age.)

I have used the same kind of harness for Zoey and started with a x small at about 12 weeks. She now wears a medium. The brand is called I Puppyone. Its held up for about 2 years now. Maddie has a more expensive one that doesn't have a name on it. But was suppose to help her from pulling to much. I have no idea if it works any different than the other because she still pulls But maybe it helps from straining her front legs.( She has a bum elbow) I don't keep the harnesses on them for more than a few hours. Neither have gotten mats from them. I don't think I would like Velcro because of hair getting caught in it? Both go over the head and the sisters don't mind.
