Rated 4 out of 5 by jacelli 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Zoetracker2 sizing wrong
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.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by snowrs 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KellyJo Great for dogs who pull
We use these on our pugs. We really love them and Chewy has lowest prices around. Only negative is inconsistent sizing. We originally bought BB2, the synthetic leather. The sizes between original, real leather and the synthetic is pretty significant. It's worth the money to get the real leather. The synthetic didn't last. But a larger dog won't fit in the real stuff. I need a size 6 for my 2 pugs who are 18 and 20 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoxyMomma 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MiloBoy 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.

We have two yorkies and have used Buddy Belts for 9 years now...love them. They last a long time...as we have two yorkies I have one that likes to "bite" through the leather straps and therefore have to replace them...other than that they would last for quite a while. They don't "choke" your dog and every dog owner should consider these, especially small dog owners.
