The Gift shop [supporting Rupert's Fund, the Cavalier Collection scheme - both for research into Cavalier health - and Irish Cavalier Rescue] has these wonderful car harnesses which we use

They are excellent as walking harnesses too so you don't need to take them on and off when going out in the car. The panel is neoprene so dries very quickly.


It is comfy to wear too!

It has clips on both straps so you don't have to pull it over their head [which many Cavaliers hate :(] Mine have learnt to hold their paw up to have it put on!]

You can also get the camo colours - this is the pink [of course!] - but there is also a blue camo

Something special for your Cavalier and supporting these wonderful causes too!

I just thought i'd add a little testimonial about these harnesses.
These really are THE best harnesses i have come across yet.
I had one for my previous dog and it lasted 7 years and I still have it and it looks new.
They are easy to clean, safe strong and they come in heaps of colours so they look good too.

They are really the only harnesses i recommend. I know the puppias are cute but i have had some issues with the sizing and the buckles so i dont use them anymore. I am bask to the ezydogs!

Plus these come with a seatbelt buckle :)

I love the ezdog harness, but I use another one for my dogs. It slips over the head very easily and has one buckle on the side. It doesn't choke at all. Love this brand of harness, too.

sorry pkt89 missed your question - Blenheim dog is 8.8kg and wears the small, the girls are around 7.3kg and wear the XS

The chart on the site gives you the measurements that the harnesses fit - but if you are stuck post again and I will try to help. If I don't see it, please PM me!



Shan, yes they can be shipped internationally :) - if you add it to your basket as normal and then enter your details, postage is charged at cost.


Tommy thinks it's time his wardribe was extended so he wants the blue camo next!!

We used to have Puppias in the past but none of mine have liked having things pulled over their heads - also like you StellaLucyDesi we had problems with sizing. I liked the look of the fleece lined harnesses but was concerned about what happens when it's raining, or they are in long grass, or in the water etc...it would get heavy once it was wet and they also look quite bulky.


Over the years we have tried many, many different harnesses but I am so pleased to have found these [and asked Tania to stock them!].

If you find the harness is not right, you can return it or change it, I will deal with the query quickly.

I got my harness today, (thank you Tania, very quick service) and it's the best I've ever had. Spangle wore it just going for her walk this afternoon and she seemed really comfy in it and because it has 2 buckles, I didn't need to put it over her head which she really hates.
I would happily recommend it (especially when bought from cavalier matters shop!!)

Thats great news to hear you ship internationally! These are really beautiful harnesses. I saw quite a few on the conitnent, think they are a big trend there but I think they are more human, as left pressure around the dogs neck. A site which is superb for deals for dog care such as grooming and pampering (http://www.groupon.ie/deals/dublin), I had leo done at a local salon for a fraction of the usual costs! He was like a new dog when he came out. lol.

Thanks Tania my harness and sweet pillow arrived yesterday they are both lovely the harness is very east to put on
Just wondering do you leave the car fitting in the car most of the time or on the harness? Just wondering what most people find works best for them:)

Glad they have arrived safely :) There are some more on order :)

It would be very helpful if people could post the approx size of their Cavalier and what size harness they bought, to help others who are interested.


We leave the seatbelt attachment in the car all the time - unless your dog is travelling in more than one car or you are using the seats from something else, it makes it easier just to pop them in and out!

Got my two harnesses. I ordered a small for Misty her girth was 55cm, and a medium for Murphy, his girth was 57cm. They both fit well, they will be even better once the chest plate molds to their shapes. The medium was the right choice for Murphy, he has a very deep rib cage , but he's so slim and long, but it's got space to come in and quite a bit to go out if he turns chubby in his old age. Misty is already a little chubby, so no need to worry about her :D

I got their pillow as well. Misty's not used her's yet, but Murphy has, after he killed it a little of course :)
