New Harness=new adventures!

I'd buy this harness again for sure. I was debating between this and another so decided what the heck, nothing wrong with having 2 harnesses. The fit is not exactly what I would like hence 4 star vs 5 review. My dog is a chubby dachshund/chihuahua aka cheweenie, about 21 pounds and wears a small. I thought an xs would be better but I returned it after seeing it more likely is made to fit a yorkie. My dog's proportions I'd equate to a fat pug/or a smaller female french bulldog type body. On the loosest the side straps are a little tighter than I'd like (they are snug but not pinching), the strap around the chest is a little looser than I'd like causing the harness to shift while on our walks. I purchased some zip ties so I can further tighten and loosen where I'd like so I hope this will solve the issue. I love how the harness goes over the neck 1st then you pull the straps from under the belly up the side of the dog and buckle at the top. Very easy..! A medium I feel would be wayyy to's just here and there I'd like to have a few more centimeters or inches more or less of material to make a perfect tailored fit (hence that's where the zip ties come into place). I plan to update when I do this to let it be known how it goes. But, yes, this harness is sturdy, lightweight, easy to clean, and made to last. I paired it with the light they sell for night walks or for dog park nights. Which, I'd say that light can hold a charge! I'd recommend people to buy the harness for sure as well as the light. I'm also looking to buy the front range to see if the fit is better on my dog's body or not...Will have to see when I decide....

Harness review

Not good. Would not recommend. Sizing is not what web site says. Contacted Ruffwear and did get a reply several days later, second time the same. Finally got it adjusted to be able to use but harness is ill fitting. Last one I bought was too large as the size ranges are too far apart. Likely a good harness for a larger dog that is a rugged outdoor dog but not for a house dog. Would never buy from this vendor again. Third time was not a charm.

I love this harness! And so does Gilda!

I love this harness for my Labrador Gilda! Easy on/off, excellent quality, and super adjustable. I have always liked walking my dog using a harness instead of attaching the leash to the collar. My dog doesn’t pull, but I hate when the collar doesn’t turn well around the neck using a leash, but most importantly a harness has to be more comfortable for the dog.

Overall good, however the harness seems to gradually loosten and has to be re-tightened almost every day. It also seems to soak up water easily becoming totally saturated in even misty conditions then taking a moderate amount of time to dry. The pup does very much enjoy wearing the harness though and I am generally pleased with the toughness and color of the product thus far

A better way to walk together.

Very easy to apply. Never liked pulling our strong Weimaraner around by his choker collar. Much better control with Hi & Light harness and much more humane.
