Last winter I bought Puppia harnesses for both Max and Mindy. Max's lasted less than a month before the clasp broke (while he was wearing it I believe). No harm done, I just switched harnesses for him. Although I was now leery of the Puppia, Mindy still wore hers if I walked them both with the coupler because it worked better with Max's. Today I was at a park with the dogs. We were meeting and greeting a couple of other dogs and three young girls. Suddenly, I realized that I was holding a leash with Max and an empty Puppia harness. Mindy had just slipped out and was standing on the other side of me. It was no big deal because we were in a safe place and Mindy is not a squirmer or a runner I just popped her back in- I still can't figure out how she got out though. Needless to say I have replaced her harness with a step in one identical to Max's and the Puppia one is in the trash. Hubby always hated it and wouldn't come for a walk if she had it on (it's pink) so no big loss.
