Default Harnesses?

Rosey has a sore neck, so I'm looking at ways of alleviating any tension from her neck.

I'm looking at harnesses. What I'm looking for, though, is something that is not a step-in, but goes on easy. Maybe something that you stick her head through, and then it buckles around her chest? I don't know if I'm explaining that well at all, though LOL

Good companies to look at? Preferably something that's not ridiculously expensive.

Maybe it'd just be easier to make my own...

My hurtta harness is super quick and easy. CD pits and Brown Dog Designs make super plush harnesses designed to go easy on the body of a puller.

I love the Ezydog harness I just bought for Jackson. It's SO easy (similar to Hurtta, but I couldn't get the Hurtta harnesses to fit him right). Not the ezydog with the chest plate... but the other one. Also, the ComfortFlex Sport Harness is another super easy one.

Thanks guys! I'm looking into them I *really* like this part from one of the Hurtta (that's as far as I've gotten thus far...) harnesses, though.

Quote:
they are especially recommended for dogs with back and neck problems. When the dog pulls on the leash, the close-fitting harness distributes pressure evenly across the chest, preventing damages to the dog***8217;s vertebrae. Thanks to the wide padding and ergonomic design, the harness is comfortable and does not cause wear on the dog***8217;s fur or skin. Easy and quick to put on, both dog and owner will get accustomed to the harness in no time.

I am a total Premier SureFit snob, thanks to Megan. I love them, and have multiple colors. Will be ordering multiple more colors when puppy gets here. <3

I mostly walk my dogs in their Walkeez harnesses:

or
http://oregonpetsupply.com/x_harnesses.php

but Pi also has a Julius K9 harness
http://www.cleanrun.com/index.cfm?fu...roduct_ID=2992

Which is super easy for on & off. I just find the Walkeez harnesses to be super comfortable for them to walk in.

I still want to get one of these! I like having all different types of harnesses, for different occasions, and I think this one would be our perfect "get dirty" harness. Plus I have such a hard time fitting him, so I think it would be great in that department.

I'm also one who likes to have different colors... Lol... I just got Jackson his Ezydog harness in brown and I surprisingly really like the color against his coat, plus it matches his tan leather harness well. But now I want a red one to go with his red Kong collar. hahaha
