Harnesses

Postby Mary McKie on Sat 22 Dec, 2012 9:38 am

Can anyone recommend a really good, strong and comfortable dog harness, preferably with a front D ring. I have had the dog games one, which lasted 15 months (maybe this is all I can expect with a very strong dog who spends a lot of time in mud?).

Need to do some research, but need a replacement asap.

Thanks :)

The Hurtta harness are strong - I have the older style but the Pro Padded Y Harness might be a good option. I prefer them to the fleece once with all this mud around. No front ring - but I guess you could add one.

There are also these which might be more what you're looking for. I've had there fleece versions which are much the same as any other's - but I've not tried the water resistant ones - but I've been tempted!

That one looks really intersting Jan - especially as the problem is that Breeze spends a lot of her time in mud and water (she doesn't just look all spaniel! :roll: ), which caused her Dog Games harness to rot. A bit more research needed, but definitely seems the favourite so far :)

Yes it looks like it might be good - but at that price I'd like someone to test them out for me before I'd buy one!!!! :) :winking:

I bought all mine fleece harnesses but stopped using them cos they hold the water too much. I bought my Hurtta harnesses each for about £15 or less each - they were selling them off cheap last year. I go for the Hurtta now though cos it's the only harness that is simple enough for all members of my family to put on and off without getting tied up in knots!

If you test that one out or find a better option please let me know! :flowers:

I have ordered the Xtra Dog waterproof one (with a front D ring). A few people on facebook said they had these and that they were very good.

I will let you know what they're like :)
