    Default Are the puppias good for dogs with sm?

    We've got a normal harness from petsmart that doesn't seem that comfortable to put on. I'm looking for a good walk in harness.

    Some dogs with sensitive heads don't like the ones that have to be pulled over the head. I have the jacket types and really like those but the sizes are odd -- the styles all vary. The step in (non Puppia) harnesses can be good too. It really all depends on the dog.

    Spencer doesn't tolerate me putting the Puppia over his head very well. We much prefer the step in harnesses and have several from Up Country, Preston, Trish Hampton and Bella Bean Couture.

    Thanks. Just what I was looking for.

    Those up country patterns are really nice. Now we have to get new collars too

    Upcountry is addictive - and I am not a reformed addict!

    I can't wait till Sparky's grown so I can get him a nice harness! I have an easy walk one I bought in the local vets for now as he's only small still.

    Am REALLY loving the upcountry ones - anyone know if they ship to Ireland?

    This is the kind of harness I have for Cassie at the moment - I got it from their stand at Crufts this year.

    I got the upcountry harnesses for my cavs and they are great. Much easier to put on Madison with SM than the one I had from petsmart. The step-in design is great from my perspective.

    I found the same thing with Charlie. He couldn't wear any Puppias, in fact the step in puppia caused him to have a pain episode - just from trying it on him!

    Whitney from here at CavTalk sent us one of Spencer's Up Country harnesses and matching lead for Charlie - it worked perfectly for him!
