  • Dog harness recommendations?

    My 9 yr old terrier mix tweaked her neck last year and has been wearing a harness instead of a collar since then. However, she HATES wearing a harness. I started off with a Ruffwear Front Range harness, and she really loathed having the harness pulled on and off over her head. I then went cheap, and got a simple step-in figure 8 type harness (the kind she wore as a puppy), and while she tolerates it, she still does not like it. I'm not thrilled with how it slides around and doesn't stay in place either.

    When it comes time to go on a walk, she tries to slink off down the driveway, hoping that maybe just this once she won't have to wear it. She acts like I'm going to beat her with it when she does come over reluctantly to have it put on. Treats don't make a difference, she dislikes wearing a harness whether she gets a cookie for it or not.

    Any other styles that I should try? Both harnesses fit her well, they don't rub or pinch. She moves freely in them both once she's accepted that she has to wear one.

    When it's later at night and all the squirrels have gone to bed, she's allowed to walk off leash, but in her harness. She greatly likes that, so it makes me wonder whether she just doesn't like how the leash attaches to the harness? I live in a suburban neighborhood with leash laws, so walking off-leash during the day won't fly. And I can't trust her not to rocket after a squirrel in full terrier-deaf mode either. Lol.

    Ideas?

    Not sure how different this one is from others you've tried, but I wanted this for my tiny dog but they're difficult to find:

      Mine is in a wide martingale. Lots of support, width less likely to damage trachea and releases instantly.
      On my kids harnesses interfered and rubbed shoulders and ribcage

        Thanks, there is a store not far from me that carries them. I’ll check them out.

          I don’t think she should wear any type of collar at this point. She most likely pinched a nerve in her neck, and it’s taken months to slowly stop bothering her. Her right front leg would seem to go numb randomly, and the weight from the collar and leash even with no tension would cause the lameness to appear occasionally.

          Plus it won’t do her neck any good if she bolts after a squirrel and hits the end of the leash hard, which is my biggest worry.

          I’ve been worried about rubs, but even after a 5 or 6 mile hike she doesn’t show any irritation anywhere. She just doesn’t seem to like it, period!

            I have this Easywalk harness:
            https://www.petsafe.net/easywalk

            It's utilitarian, but infinitely adjustable. Easy to wash and has held up well.

              My dog's breeder recommends this one as least restrictive of shoulders - https://ruffwear.com/…/dog-har…/products/front-range-harness

                Clean Run has a good selection - the Julius K9s are very popular with the agility folks.

                And I see a lot of Brilliant K9s, too: https://brilliantk9.com/

                    Thanks, will look into these. They pull over the head, but with a lot more room than the Frontrange harness has.

                      Oh, I'm sorry - you said exactly that initially and it didn't register because I don't use one and just looked for what my breeder recommended. Good luck - hope you won't need it for long.
