Excellent fit for my odd shaped dog great quality and easy to put on

Fits my Italian greyhound who is very large chested and more like a whippet/iggy

Practical and fit for purpose

Just what we need

Bought this for my dog to wear while camping. It does exactly what I need. The lichen green is quite visible even at night, and the back attachment points are extremely secure. Its easy and stress free for my dog when gearing up. It dries fast so he swims in it too!

He is right on the border between sizes. I sized up and it fits fine but I think it would have fit slightly better if I sized down. Makes no difference for functionality though.

Great for our boating and hiking days with the extra support, all day comfort and light weight durable materials. Couldn't ask for any better harness to recommend! See @ninaterrierprincess for more adventures!

Ruffwear Flagline Dog Harness

Great product, great quality.
Also great customer support.
Thus is the only harness that I have purchased that my Jack Russell/mini foxie hasn't been able to escape out of.

Exactly as described

Our 12 month old whippet was pull hard on his collar when I walked him but with the harness he is easier to walk. He’s not trying to get away from me now. It doesn’t rub under his leg/body intersection like others did. Easy to put on and take off too. 100% happy

Fantastic harness not to be without

My dog recently had a hind leg amputation and I don’t know how we would have managed without this harness.
Communication with Canine spirit was outstanding when I asked what size harness to purchase. I received a response to my query promptly which was greatly appreciated.
I purchased a medium size flag line harness for my stocky schnoodle who is 19kg.
I’m so impressed with the harness I’m now considering purchasing one for my 14 year old greyhound who needs assistance to get up.
I am also looking at purchasing a floatation harness for my tripod boy.
A wonderful company to do business with

Wriggle worm whippet!

Millar is my 5yo whippet X who can escape anything and everything!
The Flagline is our second Ruffwear harness (the first being the Webmaster) and they're the only pieces of walking gear I'd ever trust on her. The Flagline harness is so comfortable and protects the fine skin on her chest from twigs and bushes when she's off running around.
The harness provides both immense safety for Millar and confidence for me!

Excellent for Escapees

My dog Whippet Goode is excellent at escaping her lead. This harness doesn’t totally eliminate her ability to squeeze her slim lime body through anything but definitely makes it a much longer and preventable process. As long as you don’t have her in the chest lead and spraying cold water on her alls good. I only bought the second leaf because of her reluctance to go on walks has made her a whoppet instead of a whippet and she has gone from an extra small to a small. The only improvement I would suggest is to make the chest lead a metal connector as well as I think Goode was cross bred with a meet cat and she likes to stand on her rear legs and look at other dogs, so I use the front clasp to either pull her along or drop her to two feet. Highly recommend because of the handle I will stop in the middle of a refuge island and clasp her until we are ready to go.
