I had the page up to order Mali a new harness and my computer crashed. Now I can’t find the page again and with my terrible memory I can’t remember the name of the company.

It was leather but not Bold Lead, no way can I afford that one unless I win the lottery.

I some of you would be so kind as to add a few links with Light Weight Mobility Harnesses, I am sure I will find it again… ~Rolls Eyes~ …This is so frustrating!

Have you tried a Chip-in for a Bold Lead harness... it really is the best mobility harness on the market.

Beyond that one, activedogs sells several harness's for light mobility, the light mobility ones are better than the heavy mobility harness which really puts pressure in the wrong places and tends to cut into the dog.

Bridgeport sells two different types of mobility harness's that I remember. They are heavy and I'm not a fan of the straps but it is cheaper.

and Last that I know of Circle Y sells a mobility harness that is custom but none of the reviews I've ever seen on it make it much to recommend.

I've seen a lot of people have a lot of success fundraising for part or all of the cost of a bold lead design harness, Katrina will also take payments as well as help you brainstorm ideas on affording a harness.

Though the price is right for the bridgeport harness, I don't reccommend it. I have one on Maverick and I'm currently saving for a bold lead harness. It's too heavy and Maverick dislikes wearing it. I try not to use it anymore than I have to, opting instead for my walker some days until I can get a new harness.

I bit the bullet and in about 2 weeks Mali's bold lead basic assistance harness will be here. I could not aford the other one and will make due with this one. This one is my gift to myself for the next 3 years.
