Default Help find a harness?

We need a new harness for Talon. Right now we have comfortflex, which we both love! The problem is Talon's hair keeps getting stuck in the velco causing it to not stick correctly. The clip over the velcro holds the harness in place, but the velcro straps twist sideways and out of place and it just looks ugly and uncomfortable. Artimis's doesn't have that issue because of his short hair. Obvious answer is just clean it out, which we are, but we have to clean it out every day or it twists and it's just getting annoying. So we are looking for another harness without velcro straps!

So new harness likes:
-Easy on, Easy off needed! No step in's please, he goes out leashed about 6 times a day)
-Comfortable for Talon, doesn't restrict movement! He wears it running a lot!
-Clip in the back
-Preferably dries easily (Talon swims a lot in summer)
-Price doesn't matter for the right harness
-No velcro, at least not near the buckles or as a fastening for the main harness.


We are having a hard time finding one we like that will work for everything. He will be running, swimming, and jogging in the harness, so we need one that's going to last a while.

We like the Julius K-9 harness's, but are afraid they look a bit uncomfortable for lots of movement, any experience with that?

I know, we are being super picky. So there may not be one that matches our wants perfectly

I'm not sure how this harness is designed, but if it's otherwise a good harness for your dog, what about just removing the velcro?

Unfortunately if the Velcro was removed it would just slide around and be weird/sloppy like it is with the hair in it. That's the trouble she's having now... it not being secure. I am lucky I don't have very furry dogs. XD

Default Sure-Fit Harness

The Sure-Fit Harness sounds like a good one for Talon. It buckles and unbuckles extremely easily if that is what you are looking for. And I can't say I mind the price much either!

To be completely honest, both I and my boyfriend hate the way the Premeire sure fit looks. It looks like most other harnesses you see, and it makes me think it's going to rub the armpits pretty bad. I wish I could find someplace to try it on first, but so far I've had no luck. :/


Any other suggestions?
