I love the puppia- def the easiest to put on and comfortable. But we only use it for a back-up because the neck is absurdly big.

Just got the Comfortflex in the mail today, and so far I LOVE it! Fits Pentti really well, seems comfortable, and we took a nice, long walk tonight and it didn't rub him at all! So far so good! I might even order one for Bubbles

I don't want to start a new harness thread so just going to add to this one.

I'd like to get Cricket a harness, but have very strict needs for a harness which makes it hard to find what I'm looking for. I prefer Y shaped in the front mainly because I don't want to put the pressure on her shoulders, but at the same time I want a front clip harness which I don't think I've ever seen on a Y shaped harness? I'm not super educated in all the harness types though... I'm not a fan of back clip harnesses for the "encouraging pulling" factor. Plus... I'd prefer fleece lined on the front part of the harness if possible because any amount of rubbing tends to make Cricket lose hair in places and irritate her skin. I would be ok with a non Y shaped harness provided it sits correctly and not on her shoulders... ya I'm not asking for much am I? lol.

We do have an Easy Walk because it's front clip, but I hate it because of the way it sits on her chest. It's not comfortable for her to wear at all and it feels odd to try and walk her in it.

You can clip a leash to the O-ring on any Y-front harness.

The Planet Dog harness might be an option:

These look neat, but I'm not sure if they are available in the US:



They are walking harnesses from xtra dog.

Since this went a little OT already.. Is there a way to use a harness with a backpack on without causing mega bulk and rubbing?

We used our SureFit for the first time extended period on our hike the other day, and I *love* it.

Depends on the harness and the pack. I have a green backpack from Petco that worked amazingly well with Logan's "agitation"-style harness.

Hurrta makes a really nice Y-shaped harness... I had one for Jackson, but returned it, only because it fit him weird. He's such an in between sizer, so it was way too small for his neck, but next size up was way too big! lol. Otherwise, I LOVED it, and really wish it fit him properly, I'd get another. It doesn't have the front clip harness tho.

I used to dogsit two Goldens who had the Wiggles Wag and Whiskers no pull harness and it has a clip on front and back. Really nice. Came with a velvet lined strip for under the armpit area.
