2.0 out of 5 stars High hopes dashed - awkward fit, unfortunate buckle placement make it unwearable, August 25, 2012

This review is from: PetSafe Easy Walk Dog Harness, Large, Black/Silver (Misc.)
I use Gentle Leaders when I need good control of my dogs, but my foster dog hates it on her face. She's fine on a regular collar until she sees a squirrel or a bunny. While we work on this issue, I need a way to control her so she doesn't choke herself. The GL works great, but she stops periodically on the walk to try to scratch it off her face. I feel bad that she's uncomfortable and worry that she's going to scratch herself, so I've been looking for alternatives. Now I remember why I gave up on these harnesses with my other dogs. They don't fit every dog, and even when they do fit, they chafe under the arms unless your dog has a really thick coat. My pittie mix immediately tried to rub this off her and I could see why - the buckles were pressing right into her armpits no matter how I adjusted the straps.

It's going back without even a walk. It looks less comfortable and more harmful than the GL. I may try the Freedom Harness with the velvet straps next, or she'll just have to get used to the GL.

This harness might work if your dog is perfectly proportioned for it, but it didn't work for my pretty normally proportioned dog.
