|I have a terrible time with getting a harness for my dogs. You;d think it wouldbe easy, but I've got a few problems. Foxxy is wide around the chest and very narroe around the neck. I tried every puppia and puppia like harness, and it seems she's literally in between sizes, where the smaller harness fits across the back and neck, but not around the chest, but the next size up is too longdown the back though it fits the chest. Step in harnesses are hard to fit too.they never adjust right. My issue wit ht e step ins is that the dogs can get their teeth under it very easily, and the adjustable buckles are always slipping out. I had adjustables on both for a little bit, and foxxy chewed through hers, while taggerts chewed into his underarms.
the vest style seems to bite into their throats, the no-pull training harnesses are all too big, and even the dog issue roman harnesses wind up being too big or too small.
the only thing that I have found for foxxy is a roman harness for a cat. this is the y front one. It fits her nicely without digging anywhere on her.
Taggert I haven't found a good harness for that I can afford. I try the buddy belts on him, but they're very spendy. His problem is that his hair rubs off and he itches where his harness chafes, and I haven;t found a single one yet that does not cause him discomfort.
