Howdy, we joined about a week ago and while looking around the website found the Ruffwear Harness. I ordered up a red one and it arrived yesterday afternoon. Sat Shelby down, got the harness all adjusted up just in time to go to our second obedience class.
The harness made a huge difference for Shelby. The leash attaches just behind the shoulders and makes working on “heal” and the “loose leash” walks so much easier. The regular collar we used had a tendency to cause her to fall, having the leash attach farther back worked really well. I felt like she was more sure footed.
Also used it to help her out of and back into the car. Great design, great product, the red looked rather stylish on our young Golden girl.
The only problem I had was getting that weird plastic Fed Ex envelope open, that thing was as bad as a child proof prescription bottle lid!
Thanks for the great review! We're so glad the Ruff Wear Harness works well for you and Shelby. Perhaps next time you should let her tear open the package!
Shelby looks great all dressed up for graduation in her red harness. Can't wait to see pics of her at the next Harley rally in her black harness and orange leash!
