    Default Harness, any advice please

    Hi, Took Leo to the vet yesterday as he's scratching at his ears! After a full examination she said he has an infection in his ears and has prescribed ear drops. She said there were no other clinical signs of SM (But Im watching him like a hawk now) anyway she suggested walking him on a harness as Cavaliers have sensatives necks anyway.
    Can anyone suggest a good one. Ive noticed a few threads on puppia. Are they the best?
    Not sure which one to get....any advice welcome,

    Thanks

    I use the Up-Country harnesses for my SM girl and for my boy who has the skull malformation but no syrinxes yet. They both seem comfortable in them and they're easy to put on. Nothing goes over their heads.

    I bought smalls for Oz and Riley. Oz weighs 15 pounds 8 ounces (around 7 kg) and Riley weighs about 13 pounds (close to 6 kg). I just tighten Riley's more than Oz's - I think the extra small would be too little. I also just bought a medium for my big boy Oliver who weighs in at a whopping 25 pounds (big boy - not fat). He pulls on his lead a lot, and I thought he might not pull as much with a harness. I bought them at a pet store near me. The website (www.upcountryinc.com) has so many more cool patterns than what was available to me. Riley is black and tan and I got one for her that is mostly pink. Oz is a tri with a black blanket coat and looks stunning in his powder blue design. Oliver is a blenheim - so almost anything would look good on him. The pink and powder blue really stand out against the black fur. My fashion conscious dogs!!! Sorry, but I don't know if they will ship overseas. Good luck.

    Meljoy, I've been incredibly happy with the Puppia harness. In fact, Kingston owns four of them. I ordered the last one from K9 InStyle because they offer free shipping.

    Default Gentle Leader

    I use a gentle leader head harness for my Cav. She hated it at first, but it is very effective. No pressure on neck/back or underarms either.
