Default Harness

Hey all, Ive been looking for a good harness for Gypsy.
The one she has rubs on her front legs and give her a rash. When she sees it she runs away. Its kind of funny and sad at the same time.
I giver her the sign for walk and she gets excited then when she see her harness she runs away.

Since she is in her harness a fair bit of time in the summer cuz were hiking, at friends houses that aren't fenced in or camping I am looking for something that is sturdy, comfortable and with little nylon since she is sensitive to nylon.

Any thoughts or suggestions

I think bte2 recommended a leather harness on another thread, can't remember which one.

I use a nylon with padding at the contact points made by Ruffwear, couldn't be happier but unfortunately it seems this won't work for you.

Yeah ... unfortunately for me ... sigh. I find I have to use a harness with my new Boxer/Pit mix!!! SHe's a serious freaking A-hole .at times, ... but I digress.

You could try Walmart ... I found a suitable harness there for Bella. She is a Pit/Boxer mix but she has the big chest thing going on! The one I got I was "cheap" and has a lot of adjustability and it fits her fine without rubbing!

Your issue however, would be I would think that she has already built bad associations with the use of harness?? So your gonna have to let her get use to it. She would need to wear it around the house without a leash to start. But eyes on her while she is in it! Bella chewed thru Struddell's harness in doors while I was not looking?? That crap ... had not happened "with my other dog's, so there is that.

Have you looked at these?

https://www.2houndsdesign.com/produc...l-dog-harness/

Perhaps email them for more information on exactly what its made from. They are very responsive to email and questions. If you give them measurements they will help you find the right fit. I've heard a lot of good things.

I have used PetSafe Easy Walk Dog Harness, No-Pull Dog Harnesses on all my boxers. They work very well but they are nylon. Tala needed moleskin placed on the chest and stomach area of hers because it made her itch. The moleskin worked very well. I bought a roll of it on Amazon and it lasted a couple of years. Howard had to have fleece sewn onto his chest and around the front leg area for the same reason. He was such a big boy the tape didn't work well for him - kept peeling off. Otherwise, I used a least rolled leather harness on Tala later when she was old and well-trained. it does not give the support though that a flat harness does BUT it's much better on their fur.
