Buddy Belts Classic Caramel Harness
The leather and quality are good, but the buckle is too big for the dog--like they use the same size hardware on every size harness and the sizing is wrong. I measured and weighed my dog and then went one size down because another review said they ran big and it is still too big. The ring for the leash is too close to the buckle and too big for a very small dog's leash. Might be a good product for dogs over 20 pounds but not too good for smaller dogs.

Not like the others
I bought two Buddy Belts last year from another retailer. Those were natural leather and soft and pliable. This one does not appear to be genuine. Perhaps a knock-off. IT'S okay, but if I had known it was not genuine leather, I would not have purchased this item. The description in the add by the seller, said it was leather. I doubt it will hold up like my leather ones. I am disappointed in the quality.

Way too big for chest measurement
My dog has an 18" chest, so I ordered a size 6. This was totally too large, but we tried it on the dog. Within a day, it was loose enough in the shortest hole that he could reach it, which he did...and chewed right through it. Zipppp! $60 gone. Me not happy.
The harness is made nicely, but the sizing is quite evidently off.

My favorite harness!
I've tried lots of harnesses for my doxies, and this one is top-notch and well worth the money. It is beautifully crafted with great details. Very easy to put on and secures your dog safely. All the pressure points are in the right places. Love this harness!

Buddy Belt Rocks
Molly is an 11 lb long haired Chihuahua and we love her Buddy Belt harness. We ordered a size 4, for 8-12 lb dogs, and it fits great. She wears it on the second buckle hole, but we will tighten it one more after the leather softens and the harness molds to her body. So far, she has not slipped out of this harness like all the other styles we have tried. Also, the soft leather harness liners are worth the small extra fee to protect the sensitive skin under her front legs from the new firm leather. With her new Buddy Belt, Molly has no more pressure on her windpipe and does not cough or honk on our walks anymore. We are very happy to have found this harness. Here's a big thanks to Buddy for causing this great product to be developed.

Best Harness ever!
The Buddy Belt is well made and will last for years. It looks great on our Yorkie and he seems to be very comfortable wearing it. We had to replace our original (4 year old) Buddy Belt only because our dog outgrew it. Highly recommend the product and Chewy.com customer service cannot be beat, either! I will never shop anywhere else for food, wee wee pads, or whatever else our dog needs.
