Keep in mind that the ComfortFlex and Julius K9 harnesses have a straight across front which may limit foreleg extension. Our chiro recommends only using harnesses with a Y front to avoid shoulder issues.

My fav Y front harnesses are, in no particular order:

- Hurtta: Neoprene lining is soft but doesn't tangle fur or rub, and seems to dry quickly. The sizing can be a bit weird though - go by the girth measurement first!

- Alpine Outfitters Urban Trail Harness: super cushy with fleece lining. Custom fit or adjustable options available. Lots of colors. This was Maggie's and I'll probably get one for Kes or Aeri in the future. It is fleece, though, so takes longer to dry if it gets wet.

- WWW Freedom Harness: It's a no pull but it is SUPER easy to take on and off since it has buckles on both sides of the dog - no threading the chest strap through the girth strap after putting it on the dog if you want to avoid having to put feet into the harness. This is the harness Aeri wore on our walk with the girls in November.

I've been eyeing the Walkeez and SureFit harnesses as well, but don't have any direct experience with either, though my friends with each swear by them!

I swear by sure-fits. It's probably the only harness I'll own for a while!

Boo has one of these:

http://wiggleswagswhiskers.com/No-Pull-Harness/

It may not be quite what you're looking for, but it is very easy to put on (slide over the head and buckle on both sides).

Boo doesn't typically wear it as a "no pull" harness (in which a special leash attaches to D rings on both the front and back) - rather, I just attach the leash to the D-ring on her back like a normal harness.

I'm a big fan of the WWW Freedom harness as well.


Right now Merlin rocks an easy walk. I don't love it.. but I get them for around nothing at the store where I work and I needed something sturdier than a collar.

Now I want one of these. I need to stop looking at these threads.

Thanks guys! So far, I think I'm really liking the WWW freedom and the Hurtta harness for ease of use/every day walks.

I'm also liking the Julius K9 as a secondary harness for the mobility bonuses/handle (for longer trips if needed), though...
