    Default Harnesses

    Need to buy new ones for the boys. But every time we try one on, the top strap is too close to the neck. So when the lead gets attached and we pull (even a little bit), it rides up and pulls
    against the neck. This is exactly what we're trying to avoid.

    This has happened with every single harness we've tried. Defeats the purpose of using a harness as opposed to a collar.

    Can someone recommend one that does not ride up on the neck when you pull on the lead? Also, the D-rings need to be on the back, not front.

    I can't believe I'm the only one having this problem...

    I just bought our guys the K9 Julius Harnesses last summer. I love these harnesses, they are lightweight, easy to put on and take off, and really help with pulling when they walk. They are the same harnesses that they use in the military and to train police dogs. You can buy them on line at K9 Julius USA, or from Amazon. Many other members have ordered these harnesses as well and are really happy with them.

    Does it pull against their necks if you pull on the lead?? That's my main concern.

    Can I ask why you need the hook/connection to be on the back? I use the Easy Walk with Bella, which hooks in the front. It works wonders for her and it doesn't pull on her neck at all.

    @nycbullymama I use Lupine STEP IN harnesses, have them on all my dogs. If they get chewed, or have any problems they will replace them free. They do not get up to their necks, when they pull. I have been using them for quite awhile, and they have chewed one or two(when younger) and Lupine replaced them immediately. They are strong-and don't stretch like a lot of them do. You can look on their website.

    I'm using easy walk now.
    Issue is Wellie, he's constantly getting tangled in the lead and all I do on each walk (every 20-30 seconds) is lift his paw to pull out the lead. He doesn't pull enough so I don't need to use it.
    Blue gets annoyed when the lead gets stuck under a leg so he always lifts it on his own and I pull it out.. Wellie hasn't mastered that and don't think he ever will..lol..

    We use the Dozer harnesses from Carolina Pet Pantry. They have worked great for us so far.

    Will check out the Dozer one too.

    At this point, I think I may order all 3 and just see what works best.

    The K9 Julius doesn't pull on the neck at all, the hook for the leash is on the back. I think ddnene (Tracey ) and Phil both have the K9 harnesses as well.

    Castor now has this great Hurtta Y-harness. It's padded and soft (the padding is made of neoprene) and it seems more comfortable than his previous one which was a Lupine step-in (good harness, but Castor had some bald patches which we think were caused by that harness). Not sure if products from Hurtta are available in the US, though?-castor_tongue-jpg
