    Default Harnesses

    I have a tri cavalier called Henry and he will be 2 in june.
    I have been trying to get him a harness that is secure and comfortable when out on walks. The ones which i have tried have either been to easy for him to slip out of, or i feel they might be uncomfortable for him. What do you think is the best option?
    Can you recommend a good uk stockist?
    Thank you

    I use the Puppia Harness on Holly and find it great.
    There is a lot of talk about them on this website. Try and do a search.

    www.petlondon.co.uk have the two Puppia styles we all like on the board (you can find a whole Puppia thread in the shopping section!). I use the coloured mesh one but some also like the houndstooth one though it is a bit more expensive. I use a medium on a 17lb dog. Here's th link tot he soft (coloured ) harness:

    Lupines are noice too if you want something more traditional:

    Thanks for all the info, Keiron and I are trying to work out which one would fit Henry, we think he is inbetween sizes. Will have to try the harness in different sizes.
    I don't understand why they don't have the puppia harnesses in shops
    e.g. pets at home, its alot easier to check sizing when you can go in a shop and try it on your dog.

    I just read somewhere that Harrod's carries Puppia. I think it was on the Puppia Corporate site. Don't know that to be the case but thought I'd let you know.

    You'll get the sizing here - it's listed under the soft collar section.

    I'd like to get one for Zack. He is just under 12 pounds. Would a size small be likely to fit him?

    I have a medium for Daisy Boo and she would be the same weight as Zack. I can get the small on her but stretched out to the maximum. I would go with the medium.

    A small was at maximum settings on a 12 pound dog? That seems strange -- sure it isn't an extra small? I have a small on Leo, who is 15.5 lbs, and there's still plenty of room on it. It would fit Jaspar as well but a bit snug going over his head. Maybe they have resized them!

    Puppia is carried in some shops -- note that if you ring ahead you can go visit Pet London, which is just off Oxford Street, so pretty central! Because they are more a dog clothing range, many retailers probably don't think of looking at their full catalogue.

    I am going to try a soft harness I saw at Lisa/Tara's training facility in Dublin, too -- it is a step in harness and padded, looks really nice. Once I get one I'll let you guys know what they are like.

    I don't know Karlin - maybe it is extra small. I bought it before Christmas for Twinkle and though I can get Daisy Boo into it I think it's a bit too snug. Daisy Boo's is definitely a medium anyway and it's fine. The fact that they are adjustable definitely helps.
