Hi

I think wiley may have harness rub ? hes losing his fur under his pits right where the harness sits and has what looks like excema near there , wondering if hes having a reaction to the nylon , well hoping its that and not someting more probmatic , his last owner did say he didnt wear a harness for this reason , and he also didnt wear a collar , only on walks , can you recommend a good harness that wont rub or sit in those area's

Have you tried others and had probs and gone onto fleece ones , or have you always had fleece ??

im just doin abit of reseach now , and the baldness most likly will be through the harness , as i have noticed he has been getting thinner there slowly , but the excema thats appeared , im wondering if that is something to do with the medication the vets given him for his tummy upset , just seems odd hes on pills and now hes got like a rash

Lol yeah it's the harness Mandy Alfie's the same , the fleece ones are really smart IMO but please don't buy a leather gladiator style harness , nothing worse that a Staffy Chaved up in one of those:lol!:

i wouldnt of gone for a brown leather one , i would of got a purple plain one to match his collar which wouldnt of looked as hard , my daughter's jack russel suffers terribly with a nylon harness , and she got him a leather one and it cured it , but he suits a leather one been a small dog and looks really cute and doesnt look chavvy , im taking him for a walk in a minute but will just use his collar , if need be i wont use a harness at all if its goin to bother him , the sore marks arent really in contact with the harness tho i dont think ?? but he's got two like round patches on both legs in the same place and there weeping abit , i just feel more in control with a harness on him should something happen out of my control , but he walks fine without one

I did have a leather one ages ago for Enzo but it was too harsh and he was too small for it. His collar is nice and soft so I'd go for a fleece one.

I use fleece ones and will not use anything else now. If you look up dog games they do a nice fleece harness. Depending on his size he will need a size four or five but if you order the wrong size they will exchange. The company are very nice to deal with

whats the control like with them jo ? like my harness the lead clip is kinda just at the bottom of the neck which gives me great control when in say a vets when you really need to keep hold of them , and should a dog attack him , or a cat jump out i have very good control , i can litrallyl lift him off his feet with it if needed LOL , that one looks like the clip is further along the back , do you still have the same control ?? cause i only need a harness for those kinda situations

Have a look at my pics in the above thread. I don't have any issues with control and I have always used harnesses like this.
 
Before the dogs games harnesses I used an ezy dog harness but the chest piece sat too high under his neck as he seemed to be in between sizes
 
I have a couple of the dog games ones

It's dog-games ones I use too. If you're worried about control try the perfect-fit one. Indie tends to walk nicer on me of those harnesses and it's a better fit as a 3 is to wee for her in the other harnesses and a 4 is too big. All of my others wear a size 4 normal harness .

I did used to use nylon h style harnesses but they rubbed, then ezydog but didn't like how it sat.

Just got to wait two weeks for it to be made claire :( apparently they have a back log of orders , tbh i bet i could just getaway with a collar all the time with him as were handling him very well , but i just feel more confident should a problem arise with a harness , a cat litrally jumped over a wall this morning right into wileys path , and darted across the road , he thought it was dinner time , but i managed to control him just on the collar , but my main worry would be if a dog attacked him , and struggling etc he slipped the collar and ran off

I have never walked any of my dogs on a collar, I alwasy feel they are more secure on a harbess, plus I like to leave the collars a little loose which is no good if I come across a situation liek you did with the cat

Thats exactly how i feel , and yes wileys collar is quite loose , i hate it tight , feel like im strangling him , with it been so thick tho it doesnt tend to bend like alot of collars so holds him well , but would never like to trust it full time

Well talk about tempting fate after saying on here about slipping collars , hes just sliped his collar , when a dog barked at him , he got scared and jumped, and off came the collar , luckily he led down by me sop i could get it on , but from now on i think i will stick his oldharness on till the new one comes
