About this item
- DOG HARNESSES FOR SMALL DOGS – Gooby’s Comfort X Harness is made for small breed dogs. This means that our largest size will fit a dog up to 30 lbs. In order to fully utilize the functionality of the harness, as well as the fit, we recommend measuring the largest part of the dog’s chest and follow the chest sizing. For reference, estimated sizing by weight is Small: 5-9 lbs Medium: 9-15 lbs Large: 15-20 lbs X-Large: 20-30 lbs.
- PATENTED CHOKE FREE X FRAME - Comfort X Harness is made with a patented choke free design with chest strap creating a X. Our no choke dog harness sits below the usual neck area, reducing the stress pressed on the neck. By placing the D ring on the back, pull trajectory is lowered, reducing the chance of harness being pulled up to choke the dog (US D823,556 S/ US D850,021 S).
- LIGHT WEIGHT – Polyester mesh keeps the body temperature cool. It is also very light in weight and easy to take care of (just machine wash cold and air dry) ideal for an everyday use for your dog.
- NOTE: When choosing the correct size, we recommend measuring the largest part of the dog's chest and follow the chest sizing first and foremost. If between sizes, please size up
- A BRAND YOU CAN TRUST - Gooby Pet launched in 2002 because the pet industry was only focused on basic elements of the harness at that time. Our goal is to simplify pet owner responsibilities. We are determined to create dog accessories that are functional and easy-to-use to encourage a better quality of life between our pet owners and their companions.

Why X Frame?
Small and toy breeds are more prone to neck injuries. In more severe cases these neck injuries can lead to tracheal collapses, a chronic and progressive disease that involves obstruction of the airway.
The X shaped frame in our Comfort X Series reduces neck injuries by minimizing the force being put on the dog's neck and distributes them around its chest and shoulders.
Choke Free X Frame
Sized for Small Dogs
Comfort x harness is head in mesh harness with a choke free function. It has an adjustable around the chest area. Suede Outline prevents our pup from abrasion. Please measure your dog before purchasing, size large does not mean it fits large breed dogs.

Upon receipt the harness looked and felt very well made. No loose threads and no frayed/unsecured edges. We have a lot of Ruffwear products which, in regard to durability and thoughtfulness of design, have substantially outperformed everything else we’ve had or looked at in person, and as crazy dog people I’d say the majority of our income (after bills) goes toward things for our dogs. However, our puppy is growing very fast and I didn’t want to spend an obscene amount on a harness that would only last a few months (though shelters need donations like this so if you end up with products you don’t use, please consider donating!).
We hike and paddleboard with our dogs a few times each month and they get into some abrasive plants that have really damaged previous harnesses and collars. We also live downtown in a busy city and want harnesses we can trust to keep our dogs secure and safe. Our puppy has severe allergies to grass and some other vegetation and requires at least three baths a week to remove these allergens from her fur, otherwise she’ll chew her skin raw. She also is taking extra time to house train as she learned in the shelter that going to the bathroom where you sleep and eat is just how it is. Due to these factors, the harness needs to be washed at least three times per week because we wanted one she would wear continuously so that we could rush her outside straightaway if she showed any signs of needing to go. This is also why we wanted a comfortable, unobtrusive harness. We tried several different designs (step-in/clip-behind, Easy Walk, the slip-on t-shirt looking ones, and the ones that have a thick panel in front) and all were clunky or itchy, leading her to chew on them or itch constantly. This one is a miracle! She doesn’t chew it while it’s on (she has attempted tug-of-war with it while I’m trying to put it on) and she doesn’t seem bothered by it at all, unlike the others.
It is durable, breathable, and very soft. We did purchase the black color, which I was worried was a bad decision in the humid triple digit summer. However, after a 30 minute walk on a 97F evening, a laser temperature gun indicated only a 7 degree difference from the black strap and the white fur next to it. The chest strap has a wide range of adjustability, which we really appreciate! We’ve gone from the smallest to the largest length in five weeks. The non-adjustable neck portion was slightly too big the first week she wore it, but the X design kept it on her shoulders and she could not slip out. She’s growing like a weed and it fits perfectly now with room for her to bring her neck back when playing or looking up at the squirrels that taunt her. There are now a few stray threads from her grabbing it with her sharp little needle teeth while putting it on, but the fabric weave is such that they haven’t unraveled and trimming them off is an easy fix.
For background, I am a researcher in a microbiology lab working with pathogens that have the potential to infect canines and I sew as a hobby, so I am very hard on clothes when washing to sanitize after work and I have studied fabric care and quality relatively in-depth. I typically saturate the harness with Oxy Clean Max Force to aid in spore and allergen removal and this has often faded and weakened fabrics in the past. I throw the harness in the wash with our clothes 3-4 times per week and it still looks as good as new! Except for the D-ring, which has a gunmetal gray coating. I wish the D-ring had been left the silver that is underneath the coating so that it didn’t look worn, but if that’s the only issue we have that says quite a lot as this harness has been through the ringer! The only other downside is the big white Gooby text on the back—everyone thinks that is her name. We’ve actually started calling her Gooby as a joke because everyone who meets her says “hi Gooby”.
We are so sad that she is about to completely outgrow this harness and wish they made larger sizes (please consider this!). We don’t even like our seventy-dollar Ruffwear harness this much as it puts a lot of pressure on the neck when our big guy is lying down, and the panels are so thick they hold in a fair amount of heat. He also lost a lot of weight during chemotherapy and we had to buy a new one as it wasn’t adjustable enough. I’m looking to sew my own version, but I don’t have the machines that would allow the professional seam work this harness has. I’m just going to cross my fingers and hope Gooby decides to extend their size range to include 80 lb deep chested dogs! I would highly recommend this harness to everyone and because it is such a high quality at a low price point I will be including it in the care packages I give to friends with new dogs.
Tl;dr: This harness takes the abuse of a clumsy puppy like a champ and holds up to 3-4x weekly washing with extra hot water on the “sanitary” cycle, which has destroyed other items. It seems to be very comfortable (thin, breathable, broad straps so that pressure isn’t concentrated when restraining), doesn’t hinder movement in an active puppy, and the back strap has a large adjustability range for dogs gaining or losing weight. It is comparable to Ruffwear products which, in 22 years of owning dogs, has been our golden standard for performance and durability. Overall this harness has made training during puppyhood less stressful because she can keep the harness on at all times and it is very secure, so we don’t have to worry about her slipping out and running into traffic.
EDIT: I contacted Gooby via email concerning this issue and their customer service was amazing. They were extremely apologetic. After talking with my husband about my dog's personality they suggested we try one of their harnesses that are designed specifically for dogs that pull. They sent us their newest model to try. So many companies today have poor customer service. I was very impressed with how much this company cared about our satisfaction. Afyer inspecting the new harness, we have decided to give this brand a second chance.
Update: This picture is of my Lucy (yorkie) waring a size M. Lucy weights aroudn 7-8lbs. Neck is a tad big, but I have adjusted the body section so that the harness fits nice and snug around her tummy.
AS WITH ALL HARNESSES, if your dog has longer hair, it is a good idea to take the harness off regularly and brush out your dog's hair, otherwise constant use of the harness can cause longer hair to get matted.
