I purchased this harness for my lab and German Shorthair. Chic & Noodle step right in like they are putting pants on to wear. The private airports require your dog to be on a leash/harness when on the tarmac. This doesn't tug at the neck when they are trying to drag you across the runway to chase the large birds. The leash is easy to unhook and rehook with the D-link located on top. Great Item!
We have a min Schnauzer, and we needed a harness that would not slip off him like his previous one. This one stays on great, the problem is with how it falls when we do not have the leash attached. The end where you attach the leash, around the ring, is kinda loose, so the top of the harness falls to his side while he runs and plays. It does the job, but I think I am going to have to put some stiches against the ring to hold the harness in place.
The top and bottom horizontal parts both have loops so the part that goes around the dogs chest must loop through both. It makes it a bit more difficult to put on a wiggling puppy. It also tends to slip around the dogs body more than other ones we've had that are attached. (Usually the top part is attached leaving the bottom loop open for adjustments) This is a particular problem when the puppy wants to roll around instead of walk as the top part slides to the underside of the dog and it is more problematic to control the dog.
Easy on....Easy off!!! Bought one for our 10 month old hound that weighs 67 lbs and was not trained that well to heel on leash. With this harness it became so much easier. There is a handle right over the shoulders that gives you great control when you need it. To top it all off it has reflective strips so any bit of light lights up the dog. As stated earlier the harness slips on easily. You don't need a degree in engineering to figure out how it works. We have tried other harnesses in the past and we are sold on Guardian Gear. Worth every penny.
