I wrote a review extolling the virtues of the brush guard when added to this harness. But, not everyone might want the guard. I think everyone would appreciate the excellent construction and durability of this harness. I sent a message to Ruffwear asking if they would consider adding a front leash attachment as my dogs have used that on the Front Range Harness since they were 8 weeks old in puppy kindergarten. But, not having one sure didn't warrant reducing the stars for the Web Master. I used one of these for an elderly dog in the past so we can help him up, and my Aussie Katie is in her new purple one now recovering from ACL surgery. The handle is well placed and easy to grip. It takes a little time to adjust it so it's a great fit, but the straps stay in place as adjusted when you lift your dog. And, the purple is gorgeous.
