I had purchased this vest for my Shorkie in size medium and really liked how it fit him and does not strangle him while we are walking. The green is a bit bright but cute for a puppy. He is now 14 pounds and it was becoming a little tight so I got the large for him. I was afraid that it would be too big but you can adjust the velcro and it fits just fine. I'm guessing that these are made for small dogs because I now use the large and my dog is 14 pounds so I'm thinking that if you have a medium size dog, this will be way too small. The navy is a great color too.

This harness is great for my two 13 and 14 pound dogs. This product had a size change a while back, and while the smaller of the dogs wore the "M", and the "M" fit the larger dog, I've gone to size large now. I have a bunch and they wash easily by hand and are a secure comfortable and safe way to walk a dog. For wearing over a coat or raincoat, I got one XL, so the leash doesn't need to attach to the collar, which isn't good for the dog and they can slip out of that too.
Excellent quality, dogs don't easily slip out of

I love this harness and have, in fact, purchased it numerous times as my puppies have grown. Well-stitched, no rough spots on the dog, easy to get the dog into and it's one of the only designs they can't slip out of. It also protects the fragile throat of dogs susceptible to a collapsing trachea since it doesn't put any pulling pressure on the throat area. As far as the design, the velcro strap is adjustable; however, the clip strap is not, which I think is a "fatal" flaw in this design and why I only give it 4 stars. My terrier mix dogs continue to outgrow these harnesses quickly when they could last much longer if I could just adjust the clip strap as they grow (there's still room left I love this harness and have, in fact, purchased it numerous times as my puppies have grown.

My terrier mix dogs continue to outgrow these harnesses quickly when they could last much longer if I could just adjust the clip strap as they grow (there's still room left on the velcro strap to grow but it gets too tight at the snap clip area). In the course of the puppies growing by 7 pounds, I've had to purchase three different sizes which seems excessive! I plan to seam rip the stitching on the clip straps and use a sewing machine to reposition the strap closer to midline so I can get more life from the harness. The manufacturer should also consider using thinner d-rings. There's no way to get a size appropriate leash onto both d-rings on these harnesses for smaller dogs. I can only clip my leash onto one d-ring or the other, not both, and that lessens the stability of the design. All that being said, I still consider these harnesses one of the best designs for dogs that "back out" of other styles.… more
well made and soft

I read all the reviews and decided to purchase. I have a 15 pound shihpoo but his measurements were between size M and L so I decided to go with the L. Good move as it fits him nicely. Once his hair is cut, it may be a bit loose but can tighten the velcro and I rather the neck a bit looser than tighter. The harness looks well made and very soft. Found out neighbor has same one and loves it.

This is the third harness that I have bought of this type. Our puppy keeps outgrowing them but they are amazing. They fit very well in the large loops are great for hooking him into his car seat harness. Very well-made
Worst harnest sizing ever. Do not buy

I have a small dog, measured him according to the sizing, and ordered UP a size from where he is now. I got the harness and it's way too tiny. The measurement chart does not take into account the Velcro overlap of 4.5". So you are short 5" from the suggested sizing.

I have two 13 pound dogs. Size small harnesses are too big so I ordered two of these in XS. These are very well made however the sizing is way off. The XS is so tiny they would not fit my 9 pound cat. Excellent for a five pound dog perhaps. I would suggest careful measurement for the size needed and plan to go up not down.
comfy, attractive and secure

Finally, a harness my little Houdini can't wiggle out of! I have tried so many different harness styles and he managed to slip them all...until now. Thank you Puppia - and Chewy.com, of course.

I like them because they are strong and soft. I’m an 8pd Maltese and I wear the medium. Go figure! It’s a bit to big. The Small was way to tight. They need a size between small and medium.

Read the reviews, ordered a size larger for our dog, and when the harness came it was way to small. Our dog only weighs 10lbs, and this harness didn't even come close to fitting her.
