So what makes these different? From what I got from googling to see what they look like they look like a roman style harness. I've never seen them anywhere up here.

Part of what makes them so awesome is that they have a lot more adjustable points throughout the harness, so you can get it to the absolute perfect fit. With a wonky built dog, that's what I love most about it!

There's a few reasons I like them:

-They're adjustable in 5 places- both straps that go under the belly, infront of the shoulders, and also the strap that goes between the front legs.

-Because there is no strap running across the front of the chest, they don't put pressure on the throat/neck area.

-They're easy to put on/take off. Especially if you have a dog neck/back/leg issues who have trouble standing on less than 4 legs.

-You can snap the leash to the ring on the front of the chest for more control or if your dog is weak in the hind end (our old guy lost rear muscle do to LP, and would fall so much as guided him with the leash hooked to the ring on the back).

-They aren't bulky or stiff.

-I also snapped Premier's seatbelt leash thing to the ring on the belly when in the truck. That way, if I did have to slam the brakes on, Mick would be pulled down instead of over backwards.

It seems its a ridiculous cost to ship to Canada, anyway. More than the harness itself is.

Any clue how much it would be for someone to send it to you? Like, if someone purchased it here and mailed it to you instead of paying the shipping costs?

I think I'm going to have it shipped to CharlieDog to send it to me. It should be, like, $5.

Because that would be cheaper than paying to ship it here.

Can you clip the leash to the front ring? I really like front clip harnesses..

I like the WWW freedom harness but love that the surefit stays away from his shoulders all together.

Yup!

When people come in looking for Easy Walk harnesses, usually I suggest just buying a regular harness and clipping the leash to the front. For a lot of dogs, that is all they need to stop pulling.
