    I like the step-in harnesses by Up Country (www.upcountryinc.com). They don't come anywhere near the neck area, are pretty easy to put on, and all of my dogs seem comfortable in them. I have one with SM, one with CM and one who had cervical decompression surgery - so all of mine except for one need to wear harnesses.

    Everytime try new harness its a bust and a waste so I keep going back to one that I don't think is working. I need one that will also work with a puller. Does this one?

    Thank you for posting this link!

    My brother's English Cocker puppy will be ready to come home mid-may and my mother and I have been looking for "manly" collars! The fishing and hunting ones are perfect! Thanks!

    I like the front clip "easy walk" harness, it also helps with keeping Jack from pulling and at my side. Only problem is if your dog jumps up a lot it can slip off so if that is the case the "puppyia" harness is a good comfy, and cute choice.

    I use the "easy walk" harness too, but instead putting the rings on the front like it's supposed to, I rotate it to the top so the leash won't touch the neck area.

    Gemma maybe I am putting it on wrong but Jack's Easy Walk harness goes no where near his neck ! It pulls on his chest when he pulls me but not his neck. He also pulls less because of the front hook.
