    Anyone recommend one?

    Normally when Shortys on her long line its attached to her collar but i think a harness might be better as she runs about like a maddy and catches her feet on it :blush:

    We've just bought our first ever harnesses. It's from pets at home 3 peaks range. It seems pretty good but I have nothing to compare it with.

    With Harvey on his long line I just use a padded Harness, I think It was 6 euros from the supermarket, but it's lasted and still going strong. I didn't like the idea of his LL on his collar as he has the tendancy to run full pelt to the end when we first go out.:D Not sure if this answers you question :eek:

    The Ezydog harness is the best one I've tried and I've tried quite a few!

    I have a bridle leather harness for tracking, from Karenswood (just google). They are very well made, and comfortable for dogs to wear, they have a few nice products on their website, although as they last so long, I haven't been on there recently!

    Ancol - Home

    Monty has two black ones and a red one, he never got on with a collar so has always had harnesses.

    I like that they are adjustable to cope with his winter and summer coat.

    i was a bit wary at first.... being a new dog owner and all that... had lots of visions in my mind about the harness breaking and radders tearing down the road :lol::lol: but it is a sturdy thing (tested by 3 kids pulling and twisting it, the best way i find :))

    he isnt so sure of it though... on his collar and lead he pulls badly but will walk.. with the harness on he stops every two or three steps!

    Fleece Lined Harness for dogs and cats

    These are the best harnesses!!! I love them. They are really comfy for them, dont rub their fur, are fleece-padded throughout the entire harness, very strong clips, they open on both sides so you can put it over their head rather than having to step into it, wash well and come in a really good range of sizes and colours. They even do some new ones with flouresecent/reflective webbing.

    Pretty much everyone I know in agility and flyball have them.

    They are perfect for use with a long-line :thumbup:

    Having the long line on a back-clipping harness is great as it keeps it up out the way and stops them getting tangled up in it. We have always used one of these for maggie and they last really well too.

    I did have a rogz one early on, but it only had a fastener on one side and so had to be stepped into which was sometimes slightly awkward and also it had a metal ring at the chest which can pull up into the bottom of the throat which I didn't like.

    These harnesses are really good, very comfortable for the dog, well made and so easy to put on. Adjustable too. I use them all the time with my two.

    Also had them for our dogs.

    Had zara's for 2yrs. Constant use. Well worth the money. Kept it as a back up :thumbup:
    And the one for ziggy lasted 5days. As I left it on her :rolleyes:and she ate through it :mad5::mad5:

    I have one of their perfect fit harnesses (also fleece lined)! Buster is an odd shape so being able to buy the pieces seperately to fit him was brilliant! Every other harness i tried either didnt fit properly or rubbed him raw under his legs :(

    Id def recommend the dog-games harnesses!!!! :):)

    I would say long line. I found the flexi leads encourages buster to pull, as there isnt a clear indication of when to walk nicely and when not to....so he had a walking lead when i expected him to walk to heel, and a long line for when he could wander.
