Who uses these and do you recommend them?
Hurtta make great quality stuff it really does last for ages and is, IMO worth the money.
I've had these...
both were great until Ringo matured and bulked out - the chest section isn't adjustable and so it couldn't be made any bigger to accommodate this! I don't think that Lucky would have this problem though as she's more of a standard shape and Rosie's fitted fine as she's not got a disproportionately broad chest.
I like the look of these ones more (because of the shape)
...and Dogless has posted pictures of some that look great, but I haven't tried one on my dogs - I'd like to though.
I have one of these for each of their dogs as their summer harnesses, as I feel the fleece ones are too warm through the summer, plus I wanted a harness to fit over their hurtta coats...
Here's Inca in hers
(*Bold patch on shoulder area is from her allergy scratching etc - the fur is growing back*)
And Jessie in heres
I think they're great and the handle is fantastic for extra, close control
I have the Y shaped ones for the boys, they seem very comfortable in them. I chose them as the padding is neoprene and they get wet a lot.
Thank you for the photos all look beautiful.
I like them all, will go look at different styles online now. May just order one
I am a bit confused on the sizing just measured Lucky's chest/girth and it's 48cm. The closest size to that is 45 or 50cm, do they adjust at all?
Sorry for the seemingly dumb question
I can't say I'm a fan, I don't like the writing on them.
So from looking at the sizing guide I think 55cm size would be about right as it states they can be adjusted between 10-20cm smaller.
I had the ezydog quick fit before but the buckle was right in her armpit, the buckle on these do look a lot smaller though.
I get so confused choosing harnesses, looking at the haqihana ones too.
Not sure which style you're getting, the y - shaped one adjusts girth only.
They are the ones in your bottom photo; just much larger and in the "Lifeguard" range.
I like both styles to be honest, I did prefer the one in the first photo that Missnaomi posted but I'm wondering if the buckle would rub her baldy armpits. I had the quick fit ezy dog (which was a similar style but had a much chunkier buckle) which rubbed her.
Thanks for the help everyone, I know I'm a pain
It shouldn't rub in theory. Mine haven't suffered from any rubbing. I can't help you on size I am afraid, as I didn't get mine measured, we went into a shop and tried some on.
I don't think it'll rub..I haven't heard anyone else say they rub either
The boys have baldy armpits and the buckles on theirs are nowhere near their armpits which is good - you can see where the buckle is sited on Rudi's.
Thanks for the advice
I've just bought so many harnesses in the past that rubbed her (rogz, ezy dog etc) I think I'm paranoid now
I do love Lupine (which don't rub) but fancy something a bit different now.
You tried Mekutis? -- they can be adjusted to sit clear of the armpits:
No, not yet. Will add them to my research list for today
They are good in terms of being able to adjust all of the straps so you can get a really good fit.
