KONG® Comfort Dog Harness & Traffic Loop
Bought this because I wanted a sturdy harness for a particularly skittish 45-lb rescue, and this is the one they recommended in-store. They helped me fit it to him and we adjusted it so that the strap around his belly was on the tight side. I also purchased a collar for him and only put the harness on him for walks so that he's not uncomfortable around the house with a tight harness on. I hope to be able to loosen it a bit as he becomes less anxious.
He has tried to back out of it and not been able to, although I think he could if he straightened his legs (he tends to plant them to give him leverage to push backwards). So I also keep an emergency slip collar on him and clip it to the leash just in case.
The harness seems comfortable for him, and I have great control on walks. The padded loop on the top is really handy. I also bought the matching leash and really like the padded grip and traffic loop.

Love love love it!
Bought this item for my baby english bully. He's 4 months, so I just got him recently. I read stuff about how its better for them to have a harness instead of a collar. So I decided to buy one. This caught my eye because of the comfort part. Which I completely agree with. My puppy doesn't mind me putting it on. He actually sits and lets me put it on & adjust it on him. I got the medium size because I know he's going to grow, so its a little big at the moment, but its not big enough to the point where he'd slip out. Theres no tearing or ripping like I've seen on other comments about this. Maybe because he doesn't chew on it I'm guessing. Overall, its a great harness & I love the vibrant colors! Plus the handle is great too for just in case stuff!

I have a Siberian Husky and he's a big boy. So finding a harness that actually fits can be a challenge. I was surprised when I put it on him to adjust it correctly I had to tighten it (usually it's the other way around).
Love the harness and the color (green).

I wish the material were softer!
Before I get into the negative, I would like to say that I actually really like this harness. It gives me much more control of my Great Dane, and she is unable to slip out of it like she does a normal collar. However, the material is a bit abrasive. The straps that go around her belly and legs have started to rub the hair off, and she is constantly scratching. We have never had this problem with nylon collars, but the harness is just a bit too much for her.
If the material were a little softer, I would definitely buy this again!
