For those of you that use these do you have the fleece lined harness or the perfect fit harness?

I have both but tend to use the normal fleece lined harnesses more often, Are you thinking of one for Reuben? x

Yes. I am finding him a bit pulley on the lead of late. It starts when he hears a noise or a bang and he pulls when stressed. I think the chest plate may be catching his throat so am looking for something else.

I do like the one I got from pets at home which he has chewed up but I am looking for alternatives. Is the fleece one suitable for flyball? Hopefully we will be going back in a couple of weeks so he can use it for walking and flyball and I will use his Ezy dog one in the car

maybe the perfect fit one would suit him then with the D-Ring at the front too and would give you two points of contact for the lead which would help with control.

Yes lots of people use the fleece ones for flyball, I mainly use the Ruffwear ones as I like the handle but sometimes use the fleece ones for Indie and Kai and theyre fine x

Hi Jo this is what happened to bubbles. He was pulling so much that it was catching his throat. My vet told me to have a fleece harness to help him and it does. He still pulls witch is a pain. I use the fleece lined harness. I think the other one is to chunky for him.

Thanks, he does not pull all the time, only if he gets stressed if he hears something which upsets him.
I have always used the Ezy Dogs harnesses and have never had this issue before, I was wondering recently if he was starting with a cough but he only coughs when on a walk and after he has been a bit pulley.

Tonught was great as he had a really relaxing walk so we were OK with the Ezy dog but you can never judge when he will be reactive to a noise.

I have ordered one of the Fleece harnesses today and I hope they are good quality as they are a bit pricey. I normally pay between £15 and £18 for a harness amd I think this one came in around £26 with postage.

Yes of course. It is black on black so not sure how it will show against his fur.

Our 3 have had theirs for about 14 months now Jo. You're right they are not cheap but I reckon they are great value.

Never had a problem with any of ours. Webbing is good quality and buckles are all good too.

Also not had any problems with rubbing on the skin and we have 3 different shaped dogs wearing them.

When I got bubbles two they cost £17. Now they are £22. I bit of a shock there as I was going to get another one for him. I like the combo and I like the brown on brown one for him.

It has arrived today, very quick service.

One question though please. The adjusters for the girth, do they have to be behind one the elasticated pieces? I have bought the size 4 and it fits but the buckle is very close to the clips and it not held in place by the elastic strips.

I dont want to rip the tags off and take him for a walk for the fleece to move around on the harness

Thanks

With Baileys ( size 5 ) and Maizie's ( size 4 )the elastic / fleece band goes completely from one buckle all the way underneath to the other side, with one of the elastic strips sitting on the outside of the buckle each side.

Amys ( size 4 ) doesn't quite make it to the other side she's bigger than Maizie - hers sits underneath but doesn't make it all the way round and although its a comfortable fit she has no more than about 1cm adjustment left each side. Clips and buckles very close on each side too.

Jo this might help re fit ...If you go back to the shop and look at the harness again as if you were going to buy it there are some pics where you can see other dogs wearing them - many of these don't go all the way round.

I've been using the fleece harnesses for about 4 years or so now and they are still going strong!
