Love the way these are made; had bought perhaps 4 or 5 of them; different sizes for 3 dogs/pups. Our youngest pup can still where the Large as she has a small neck. The other 2 pups have larger necks and the neck is too tight for them to wear. I wish this company could make these vests with some type of adjustable neck area as they are very well made otherwise; the fabric is light and airy too. They are awesome if your dog doesn't have a large neck (even with the XL - neck fits but chest too large)
When I've bought harnesses in the past, medium has always been the right fit for a Scottish Terrier and King Charles Spaniel. But when I got them, they were too small. Chewy graciously sent the large size for both my dogs without further charge, and the fit was perfect. I had just made a cross country move and unless the fit is too snug, it is possible for them to spook and in a panic, to yank their way out of a regular harness, so they were in heavy duty harnesses for a few months, which I no longer needed once they got their bearings and knew we were home in our new place. They are much happier with the lightweight but secure fit of these harnesses.
Well, I got a size too small, so I gave it to a friend who has a kitten, which works perfectly for her. My cat is three and didn't like the over-the-head aspect, but that could have been because it was too small. My Cat is 12LBS and should have tried the Medium for those curious about the size-to-weight ratio; if they are on the cusp, go a size up. The material is decent.
This harness is extremely well made and washable. The fit is perfect and I bought it before and will bought it again in other colors. Satisfied always with Puppia products.
I measured this against the two Puppia harnesses I own, and it is quite a bit smaller now in the neck. If your dog has a wide head, you need to order a size larger than you expect. My older harnesses would have received 5 stars.
I ordered size medium for my cavalier king charles that are 16-18lbs. These were replacing their old harnesses that I used to buy from PetValue. These are shorter in the length going down the back. I hope they don’t cut into the back of their front legs. So far they don’t seem to be bothered.
I followed the measurements & size medium fits my little one perfectly, he does need to drop 1-2 pounds though so hopefully it won't be too big for him then. the blue looks adorable with his fur color. I've bought several of these harness and they last for a good couple years (my dogs get walked multiple times a day so they get a lot of use), I like that they dry quickly and are light weight. don't seem to bother them when wearing them
I should have read the reviews. It wouldn’t go over her head. If it did fit, the quality is poor.
This harness is adjustable, very easy to put on and our puppy seems to not be upset or bothered by it!
This is the best harness out there. So easy to put in and holds up well! Going to get one in every color!
