Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for my pug! After almost a full year of daily use, I can honestly say that this is the best dog harness I've ever owned. My pug has grown in the last year and it's super easy to make adjustments, but there doesn't seem to be any slippage in the adjusters (ie, they stay where you put them). The fabric is showing a tiny bit of wear, but definitely less than I would have thought I'd be seeing after a year of use. Pros: -Easy to put on/take off -The placement of the parachute buckles ensures that there's no way to accidentally pinch any skin/fur while snapping them shut -fabric seems to protect from chafing and is holding up very well Cons: -Nothing that I can think of!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and easy on, easy off Our pup usually wears a front-clip harness, but we needed something else while he healed from a chafing. Not only was the Ruffwear sturdier than most of the other harnesses we looked at, but it also allowed lots of limb movement. The front loop is definitely not for attaching a leash (unless your dog doesn't pull at all); it looks like it would rip out fairly easily. The back loop is much much sturdier. When walking tiny shelter dogs, I've had to deal with a variety of harnesses, and I appreciate how easy the Ruffwear is to put on and off; no slipping buckles through loops, or threading webbing around tummies. Slip on and clip, no muss, no fuss. I plan to use the Ruffwear as a car harness once I get a seatbelt attachment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice harness for non-extreme pullers I got this for my alaskan husky when we go on hikes, and also to keep him in the car when the windows are down. The harness is nice, and easier to put on than other ruffwear ones we've tried. the two buckles on the back make it a 'snap' to put on. He's very fussy and doesn't like getting dressed yet, but this cuts down on the hastle. as with other ruffwear harnesses, and harnesses in general we've tried, the front has nylon tensioners/keepers that do slide along the nylon when he pulls. would give 5 stars if the tensioners were metal and didn't slip. the front attachment is just a loop, nice to attach a bell or something if you don't want to attach your leash there. for a dog that still pulls, attaching the leash to the front causes the tensioners to loosen up over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this harness. This is the first dog harness that I have purchased and we love it already. Used to be, our 65lb lab/boxer mix would pull constantly on the leash while walking and hiking. Now with the harness on, she hardly pulls at all. She walks alongside us at parks. I chose to buy the blaze orange color so that she would not be mistaken by a hunter as wild game. Safety first!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable fit harness Our other harness was chafing our lab mix puppy under the arms, so a friend recommended the Ruffwear Harness as it connects further back taking the pressure off the arm pits. It allows for clipping on back or in front. The medium fits our 40# pup just great (he has a broad chest and thin body) with room to grow since he's only 6 months old. It came in orange which matches his collar and leash. We have washed it once (on gentle cycle) and it came out looking brand new. Great recommendation and we love this harness!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, Long-Lasting Harness It has help up really well and is our day-to-day harness. Our dog rolls in the grass a lot which causes the adjustment straps to loosen around the stomach. Even though she did escape from this harness once as a puppy, we love it for hikes and morning trips outdoors. Easy to clip on and off. I highly recommend for high energy dogs that car be trusted not to try and back out of the harness!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Harness Ever So easy to use.. just slip over the head and click around the chest. No more confusing straps that are a pain to get on. Seems super durable and Oliver looks great in it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort and style on the trail! Very happy with the quality and fit of this harness. Putting the harness on is as easy as placing it over the head and pushing the bottom section between the front legs, then snap in the straps. The padding allows for a more secure fitment. The harness will stay in place and not slip to the sides. This is the first of this brand that I have purchased, but I will definitely be buying additional ones for the other members of my trail herd!

Questions & Answers

I have a 3 legged, medium size dog. It is her right front leg that is missing. Do you think this harness would work for a tripod?

Asked by: ChrissyMc
A better alternative for the tripod dog is the Ruffwear Webmaster harness - and REI carries it online. Much harder for the pup to back out of it, since it has a third strap for the belly. Pricier, but worth it IMO. Ruffwear designed it specifically for tripods.
