Puppia Soft Harness

The Puppia Soft Harness is our best selling harness. It is made out of 100% Polyester Air Mesh, which is light-weight, breathable and very soft to the touch. Available in 12 different colors and 6 sizes, this harness is sure to fit most dogs very comfortably. This harness features soft edges (piping), some in contrasting colors, a genuine Puppia rubber label on the chest portion, an adjustable chest belt with a easy snap on/off buckle and a D-ring on the back to hook any standard leash onto the harness. Although this harness was developed with smaller breeds in mind, over the past few years, Puppia has added larger sizes to accommodate larger dogs.

Collar vs. Harness

There is nothing wrong with using a collar and a leash on a dog, as people have used them for a long time. A collar is a good functional tool when training your dog to walk on a leash. The use of a collar can sometimes cause strains in your dog's neck and trachea and for small breed dogs, this can be very dangerous. Smaller breed dogs have small necks and small necks have fragile throats and tracheas. Using a collar can sometimes lead to a collapsed trachea and cause respiratory problems. A harness is designed so that when a dog is walking on a leash and it pulls forward, the pressure is distributed throughout the dogs' chest preventing the dog from choking and hurting its throat.

Sizing

The Puppia Soft Harness comes in a variety of sizes from Extra-Small (i.e. 2-3 lbs dogs) to Extra-Extra Large (i.e. 60-70 lbs dogs). It is very important to measure your dog properly and the image below will help you measure your dog properly. Just like us humans, individual dogs vary in size and physique, so choosing a size based on a list of breeds should only be used as a suggestion. Always use actual measurements from your dog taken with a tailor's tape measure or even a piece of string and then lay it against a yardstick. As a rule of thumb, if your dog is in between sizes, please go up a size. For the Soft Harness, one of the most important measurement you will need is the dog's neck measurement. Since this harness has to fit over the dog's head, please make sure the harness' neck opening if large enough to fit your dog's head through. The dog's neck should be measured at the place where a collar would naturally rest (base of neck). It is very important to take the measurement at the base of the neck, otherwise you will wind up with a harness that is too tight or won't even fit over the head.

IMPORTANT: Unlike human clothes, pet apparel designers have different sizing characteristics, so please do not purchase a Puppia harness based on the size of another manufacturer/designer. Also, just because your dog is small to you, does NOT mean it automatically fits a size small harness. You have to take various measurements into consideration before you purchase this harness. All dogs are built differently and some dogs have very deep or broad chest, whereas some dogs have a large head compared to their body. So please make sure you measure correctly and make sure your dog's head can clear the neck opening of the harness, as this portion is NOT adjustable. If you are looking for a harness that is adjustable around the neck, as well as chest, we suggest trying a Puppia Superior Harness or Puppia RiteFit Harness. Both are available through Amazon.com.


Fitting

Below are some pictures of the Soft Harness being worn by various different sized dogs. When sized properly, the harness should rest below the neck (right around the shoulders), which allow the harness to distribute the pressure evenly across the chest and prevent any choking.


Product Description

This is a very well made, comfortable harness.
Jester
The neck part is NOT adjustable and it has to get over your dog's head and sit on his/her neck.
doobie do
The size small fits perfectly with room to grow if needed.

This is a very well made, comfortable harness. Both my small dogs wear this Puppia model (in different sizes) and they have worked out very well, even as car safety harnesses.

However: BEWARE OF THE SIZE CHARTS -- what the chart calls "neck size" is the actual size of the opening.

This is the same opening through which the head must pass. Basically, you need to measure the dog's head diameter and look THAT up in the chart's "neck size" column to choose the right harness size.

Color Name: RedSize Name: Small Verified Purchase
This harness seems sturdy and serves its function well, but a design limitation that you should consider before buying it is that the neck portion is fixed in size and cannot be adjusted or snapped on. According to the specs on the manufacturer's Korean Puppia web site, a medium corresponds to a 13" neck; and I found that the medium harness indeed fits snugly and well for our dog who weighs 20 lbs and has a 12-13 inch neck. The problem comes when you try to put the harness on. Unless your dog has a smaller head than neck, good luck trying to thread your dog's head through the "eye of the needle".

I had seen and admired the Puppia harness at dog beach and dog park. It was not available through my usual pet supply sources, so I was pleased to find it on Amazon (of course!) I followed the sizing guidelines for my pekingese and ordered a large. It was a little loose at first fitting, and then quickly stretched to unuseable. I like the product, so reordered in medium. Unhappily, while the body was a much better fit, the non-adjustable head opening just didn't work on a broad-headed, wriggling teenaged peke. With just a little more research on Amazon I found the "Puppy One" harness which has an adjustable head opening -- same basic design, same comfortable fabric, just a slightly "tweaked" design to make life easier!

Color Name: RedSize Name: Small Verified Purchase
I purchased this Puppia harness for my Boston Terrier who likes to pull while walking on the leash. The harness does not stop the pulling, but at least it put an end to the embarrassing choking noises. My dog does not mind wearing the harness, as it is very soft and comfortable. To top it off, I think it is quite stylish. I am completely happy with my purchase. I would recommend this harness to others who have a small dog.

I have tried several different harnesses on my two Bichons. Either they wear out quickly or don't stand up to being washed, or both. The Puppia harness is durable, does not choke, easy to put on and take off and my dogs are perfectly happy to keep it on for a few hours if needed. They do not try to chew it like they have some others.
I highly recommend this harness.

Do yourself and your dog a favor and start using these great harnesses.
Our little Yorkie had a ruptured disc that the Vet discovered it was caused by the use of a neck collar and he recommended we use these soft harnesses for him.
We have 3 little dogs and they all use these now. Once you get the hang of it they go on easily, they are
very comfortable and the dogs have plenty of freedom for movement.
Think of how your neck and spine would suffer if YOU were pulled around by your neck everyday, these
harnesses put pressure around the chest and not the neck when pulled.

I have one before. They last forever. The price is a lot better here at Amazon. Most important it is comfortable for your dog. A helpful hint. The sizing chart go by the neck of the dog. For instance my dogs collar is only 12 in so I got the medium. She also weights 12 lbs if that helps anyone else trying to figure whether to go with small or med.

Tip: If you can find these somewhere to try on your dog, would be best. And let the dog walk on leash with it on. The neck band slips over the dog's head so they have to get used to that.

The harness is quite soft and flexible. It isn't a tissue thin item, however. It is made to be sturdy and distribute pull pressure over dog's front areas.

I have two major problems with this harness:
First is that the neck band is so much wider than the rest of the harness. This distributes the pull in that area, but as a result it takes up a bit too much neck space - riding like a too-high turtle neck. On my Papillon, anyway.

Because it is so soft and flexible, my Papillon has gotten her leg thru the neck band on occasion, especially if I leave it on all day. if I'd gotten a smaller size, then the neck band would've been too tight.

Second: The snap lock works well, but ends up down behind her front leg, especially when the harness slips sideways as she moves around on leash. The plastic parts of the lock are rounded and smooth, but it is quite large and I don't think it can be comfortable having it near her bony, little elbow when she walks. She accepts having it on, but doesn't seem comfortable in it.

I am still using it, but will be looking for something that works better for me. I do think this would be a particularly good harness style for teacup and stubby-legged little dogs whose necks aren't too short.
