I think that this design is great for dogs but not cats, especially if you have a cat that might get a bit nervous every now and again. I really liked this harness until one day I was walking with my kitty, Arlo, and he got spooked by a car as we hadn’t been out in a while due to a lot of storms in California. I bent down to pick him up and rather than letting me hold him, he was spooked even more at this point and did a crazy jump into the air, completely twisting his way out of the harness. He bolted away from me immediately and I was unable to find and catch him for just under an hour. To say I was hysterical would almost be an understatement as Arlo is my baby. Eventually, we were reunited with treats and toys but we both spent the evening exhausted by the stress of the day. To be completely fair, I had just loosened the harness slightly that day to accommodate for his growth as he has been wearing the harness for about 3 months when this happened a little over a month ago. However, now I’m too nervous to use the harness again given that he’s proven he can escape the harness if he really wants to and we live in too busy of a neighborhood next to train tracks. I couldn’t handle another great escape, so I will have to get a new harness. I will say the harness is gentle on their throats but does restrict movement of the shoulders slightly so their gait does change slightly. Also, Arlo did not always like having me put it on him but it seemed to be comfortable once it was on and outside exploring (likely because he just loves outside time).
I measured my dog and she’s a small but this harness is too big for her. Too much material when it’s sized to fit a small dog.
I’m a cat. It fits well, but I thought it a tad on the large side. My human adjusted it so it fit well, but I don’t like him handling my front paws to get them through the straps. For me, a vest works much better.
Love this walk in harness now that she out grew the Velcro one is bright and sturdy
Small and difficult to maneuver. Not that sturdy.
This harness was great for Olive over the summer when it got so hot. It fits great.
Love this harness! She’s tiny so I got the teal size XS for my kitty. It’s adjustable so it fits her pretty well, she hasn’t been able to escape it yet. I got the matching harness, too cute. The only thing is it restricts her movement a bit around the shoulders. She doesn’t like jumping or walking around in it much but it’s a work in progress
Excellent craftmanship; very sturdy. a little weighty; best used for a dog & not a bigger cat. My baby's a big girl and although this did fit her it was a little stiff & she didn't' care for it.
