I know I said I’d post about our pet shop spoils today, but…Kasper’s harness arrived! Despite only being shipped yesterday!
I was so excited 🙂
It took a while to get the sizing right, which is why in one of the pics with Kasper wearing it, the harness is pulled to the side a little. But we got there in the end!
I love this harness; it has a standard clip to attach the lead to on the back, and one on the front as well. The colours are simply amazing, the harness looks great and feels sturdy, and I love the look of the D clip on the back. Ruffwear have also added several reflective strips, making walks in the dark that much safer.
The harness also comes with a hidden velcro pocket that you can attach your dogs’ tags to. I’m not sure how I feel about this – I kinda like my dogs’ tags to be very visible, that way should the lead snap and the dog gets lost, people can find our information easily. For now I’ve just attached Kasper’s main tag to the front clip, seeing as we won’t be using it, and his posh ‘special occasion’ tag is in the hidden pocket.
Kasper was fantastic having the harness put on and taken off, but then again he is the complete opposite of Zoey and doesn’t mind wearing anything or having things put over his head. He didn’t mind wearing the harness at all, so I can only imagine it’s comfortable, and as soon as I was done getting the sizing right he settled down to chew an antler wearing it 🙂
We took Kasper on a walk in the harness, and it didn’t rub him at all. He walked normally and, even when he pulled at the start of the walk, he didn’t make any choking noises as the harness doesn’t sit too near his throat. Kasper splashed through plenty of muddy puddles but the harness wiped clean afterwards (to be honest it didn’t even need that) and is already pretty much dry. It seems like a great harness 🙂
And here’s Zoey in her harness so she isn’t left out 😉
