Rated 5 out of 5 by Magg Both Mom and Pet love it!
I bought this harness for my medium-sized, mixed-breed Boston terrier. She is a rescue dog, so I have no idea about her history of any kind, including her age (about 8 years old). I have no idea if she has ever been on leashes or harnesses or which types. In the 2 years I have had her, she has not done well with the conventional neck leash, the rare times that I have needed to use one. So, I decided to try a harness and this harness, in particular.
I chose the Planet Dog hemp harness because of the great reviews, its apparent comfort and durability, and that it is adjustable and machine washable as well. This harness did not disappoint in any of those features!
The outer cover is very flexible yet durable, and after six months of sporadic use, it still looks like new. The underside of the harness, in actual contact with the dog, is very soft fleece. It is non-irritating, not scratchy and not binding. The webbed seams are very strong and keep the harness securely seated on the dog. Within a specific size range, the harness is adjustable and I was able to fit it snugly and easily to my dog. I did measure her chest size before ordering, as recommended, and the harness fits splendidly with just a minor adjustment.
Of course, the most important features are that it is easy to put on (although it took this non-engineer a few minutes the first time, to determine front and top -- no picture or markers) and my terrier actually enjoys it and is far more easily and comfortably (for the both of us) controlled. I have even taken her bird hunting a few times on this harness, and we both enjoyed it!
My girl had no issues with using it or wearing it. In fact, she becomes so excited when she sees me take it down from the rack ... she knows that we are off to some fun adventure!

Rated 4 out of 5 by belleamour921 Comfortable!
I bought this harness because I cannot stand nylon harnesses. They are too stiff and they always seem to rub and chafe. This harness is so flexible and soft. I love it! The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the snap closure. I haven't tested it yet, but my dog is a BIG dog, and it seems he could pull the snap out with one of his hard tugs. Other than that, I have no complaints! The color was true to the picture and I just can't express enough how comfortable the material seems!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BruBear12 Very comfortable harness
I purchased this harness for my boxer as previous harnesses have come up very high on his chest, causing pressure on his lower esophagus when he pulls. Since this harness has a V-neck design and is soft, yet durable I wanted him to try it. It is super soft and flexible and does not compromise his lower esophagus which is good since he has esophageal dysfunction and an elongated soft palate which dictates he can only wear a harness. It is easy to put on him and adjust. He is approximately 63 pounds and tall so he is pretty lean for a boxer. The medium fits him perfectly and has room to make tighter or looser depending on if his weight fluctuates. Hopefully it will last a long time as it seems to be a great harness!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jan4Him Good harness . . . for some
I have two Papillons. Both weigh about the same though one is taller and longer and the other shorter and maybe a bit rounder. :) The harness is great for the shorter/rounder and, I would add, fluffier one. However, for my more slender one, no matter how I tried, the harness kept slipping sideways on her. Maybe it's because she has less hair or ??? I'm not sure. So, I would have given this 5 stars if I only had the one Papillon. But since it didn't work well for my girl, I had to drop the rating (because I would have given it a 2 for her).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hannah52 This is just what I wanted
I needed a strong harness to keep my cat from wiggling out. So I had to get a dog harness. And this one is nice. Has a fleece lining for comfort. I also received it very quickly. I would shop here again. Thank you.

I measured this according to Chewy instructions,
but I have to send it back because it's way too big.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BuddyPoo I wish this came in X-Small
I love the harness but it is WAY too big for my 7.5 lb pomapoo with a 16 inch chest. Please make one for a small dog.
