    Default Pug Harness - Which one to buy

    Hi there,

    I've recently thought of moving my pug (James) off his collar and onto a harness as I was recently educated that collars are bad for them.

    I was wondering if anyone could help point me in the direction of a good harness and also what you think is best in a good harness.


    Many thanks,

    Piers

    I really like the julius K9 harnesses for all terrain running amok. The puppia ones are nice and soft and come in an incredible variety. I also like H-style harnesses like the ones made by Rogs (there are better brands, they just escape me at the moment).

    Then, there are spectacular leather harnesses made by a company called 'hunter' that are simply gorgeous.

    My favourites are puppia and Rogz (pretty much what Nina said!) I didn't get on with the Julius K9 but they are top quality harnesses (at least I think they are supposed to be) :)

    Premier 5 Way Adjustable. I absolutely love them. Hard to come by in the UK but worth looking for. Not particularly beautiful but durable, practical and strong enough to use as a car harness.

    I love the Lupine Products. They are the only harness my criminals can't get out of. And they come in all sorts of designs.... :) We have a closet full. And if they are every chewed or anything they replace them FOR FREE! I have replaced several and it is so easy!

    The main problem with harnesses are getting the right one to fit your specific dog shape! Why not take him along to a large pet store and try some on for fit? The other thing to be slightly wary of is if your puggy has a tendency to shoot backwards if something alarms him since some harnesses can slip right off over their heads if the dog struggles and puts his front legs forwards as he pulls back. I don't know that any harness is 100% escape proof but some fit better and give you a chance to slacken the lead and quickly grab your dog. The main problem I have with mine at the moment is that she is in between sizes - they're either so tight I can hardly get it on or the next size up adjusted to its smallest size is still slightly too big and she'd easily get out of it if something scared her :(

    Second on the Puppia. I have one in red, and get lots of compliments. It slips right on and off.

    I nearly forgot - check out the ruff wear dog harnesses. They are functional, sturdy, padded in all the right places and I find them quite pretty.

    Chai's Choice harnesses are another great option, limited colours and sizes, though - they are slightly too big for my bitty pups, but the XS should fit most pugs just right, and front clip for training not to pull!
