So good I bought a second one!

We now have two of the harnesses and I purchased the ruffwear brush guard to go with both of them. I can now walk my two furbabies down the street without the risk of losing them because they pulled back out of their normal harness.

Great product

Makes it easier to pick up our whippet by the harness handle and gives him a bit more protection zooming through the bush.

Ruffwear Brush Guard - Attach to Harnesses & Packs for Chest Protection, Lifting Support

excellent product

quality build, functional utility, highly recommended


Harness was advertised as being good for amputee dogs. My dog has his left front leg amputated. The design of this harness means its only easy to equip if the right leg has been amputated. Harness only has clips on one side so the one front leg that he has is supposed to be lifted of the ground and slid through the harness. Large dog and it's not an easy task.
