If your dog shakes then expect the straps to fall off
on October 18, 2014
First thing, this fits my catahoula leopard dog perfectly but he does not like having it on his back so he tries numerous times to shake it off. It will not fit small dogs properly so I would say dogs of 45+ lbs could wear this.
Second, it's very easy to put on your dog and he should not mind it at first especially if you use a harness to walk him/her.
Third, the straps are easily adjustable and come with sleeves to hide any flapping straps.
Fourth, there are no buckles and that's a huge problem because when my dog shakes, the main waist strap tends to fall off. The reason it falls is due to the fact that his shaking loosens the straps enough for some to come off.
Fifth, the bottom chest plate is useless and uncomfortable for the dog so try to avoid this POV.
Sixth, the top plate is the best place for the go pro but it's also lacking proper height so some of the video shots may have too much of the dog's head. A quick adjustment of the camera should fix this.
Seventh, stability is actually not that bad but if there is a lot of hyper movements then prepare for some blurriness but not too bad. My dog keeps shaking (will eventually stop once he gets used to it) but the shots were not that bad but the sound is.
This is $60+ accessory and they skimp out on proper buckling? My dog may not like having the fetch on him but it does not hinder any of his movements and it's not too tight. He rarely wears a leash or a collar so he prefers to be free that way. While he does not try to scratch it off, I am concerned that if he ever does then he might easily remove all straps so buckles would be nice.
