    Default What type or brand of Harness do you use?

    Hi, everyone, I am wondering what type or brand of Harness you use for your bully. I bought one that was made of a soft cloth material that went across their chest when they were puppies, and they outgrew them, my second type I bought, I had for all of 15 minutes, I can't remember the brand it was, but I bought them at Woofstock in June, and I had the lady at the booth fit them on them, we walked around for about 15 minutes, and in that time Blossoms fell off once, and Dozers, fell off 3 times, it fell off around his legs, and he got out of it. I took them back to the tent where I bought them from and told her what happened, and she said " oh but you haven't given them a chance, and you've only had them for a few minutes". I told her yes, and that in those few minutes, they have fallen off as he walks 3 times. She said take them home and if they don't work bring them back tomorrow, I explained to her that I was only there for that day, and wasn't coming back the next day, so she did give me back my money. I have another type I bought at Petsmart when they out grew the first harness. I bought them a little bigger so they would fit when they grew, the guy at Petsmart told me , they were the largest size and that they would fit them into adult stage. My two guys are 16 months, old and I don't like using their collars for when we go on long walks, especially for Blossom as she pulls so much when she walks. I tried them on today, and they are too tight, so tomorrow I'm going to return them to Petsmart. Now I'm back to square one, not knowing which harness to buy for them, none of them seem to fit them properly. What brand is good for a bully body, and which type of dog harness do most of you use for your bullies? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank guys.

    I love the Kong harnesses. You can find them at Petsmart. For my two EBs I have the kong harness that does NOT have the chest plate, it's just a two strap harness with a "handle" on top, if you go on the Petsmart website I think it's called "kong harness with traffic loop". Fr my Frenchie I have th kong harness wi the chest plate only because it fits better for her body type but I did not like that one for my EBs, the neck just seemed too tight! I do love these harnesses, Gio's has now lasted me over a year and a half with no problems, they have so many adjustable straps that it fits perfectly!

    Thank you for your reply, I'll check them out tomorrow, and since I bought the other ones from Petsmart, I can exchange them instead of returning.

    If you want to invest the $$ in a good collar and leash I'd go with Kong. It's definitely best to wait until they are fully grown though since they can be expensive. I think we spent almost $100 on Cleo's set in WA and Mac will get his when he turns 2. The leash is awesome because it has a bone shaped rubber holder that you can slide up and down for wherever you want to grip the leash for extra hold.

    i have the Dozer from Carolina pet pantry, very durable and stylish. especially cuz when im trying to put the harness on TAnk he thinks its playtime, he has it more in his mouth than on his body...lol. i've had it for about 6 months now, can be adjusted pretty easy. the stylish part is you can get matching collars and leashes.

    Walley-Bubba has a red Kong harness for large dogs.
    He used to choke on the collar when he was little.
    We worried about damaging his windpipe/oesophagus.
    No worries with the Kong once he was finally big enough to fit.
    The handle is great for grabbing him when he is out of control and has turned into a greased pig.
    The handle also works great with the seat belt in the car so he won't go flying in a crash.

    We are using padded PetSmart harnesses for now with Harlea, but will be switching to a Kong harness when she gets older/bigger.

    I use the kong harness with the traffic loop and I like it a lot. The only thing is it's a little long from neck to shoulder but my girl is still growing. I also have the leash with extra traffic loop- comes in handy when she gets to pulling.
