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.
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.
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.

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.
So today, Father's Day, my sisters and I gave him this harness to put on her, and a Flexi retractable leash (Flexi Explore Soft Grip Retractable Cord Dog Leash, small, 26-feet long). We were worried the harness wouldn't fit or--more importantly--that it would be difficult to get on her, or be so uncomfortable she wouldn't like it. But amazingly, it was a HUGE HIT! Dad was able to put it on her in about two seconds (seriously, all you do is put it over your pet's head, then bring the straps up behind the front legs and snap them around the back). At first it looked like it might be a bit large (we got the medium dog size) and she might be able to slip out of it, but then we realized: Hey--it's adjustable!
So right now Dad is outside with Sheba, relaxing with a cup of coffee while she digs in the dirt and rolls around in the shrubs, and he doesn't have to worry about losing her or running after her. Btw, we also got a 20-foot extension he can add to the leash to give her more room to roam, but it won't arrive till tomorrow... Anyway, the harness/leash combo not only works incredibly well, it really fills a need. We couldn't be happier!
I did get the XX-Large size, which is perfect for her large upper body. Her neck measure 17.5", so I thought the X-Large may be too small for her. (see pictures I uploaded with the yellow harness)
I would recommend this product for sure!
