    Putting it on Diggy was super easy, I didn’t have to lift his legs to get the harness on, it simply slipped over his head and the clip went behind his front legs and clipped up at the side. When relaxed the harness is nice and loose around his girth and for Diggy I would imagine it feels like he isn’t even wearing one which is really nice for him, he does tend to be a bit reluctant when putting on harnesses normally but he does not do this with this harness. When out walking if Diggy begins to pull you can use the harness for a small correction and bring him back to your side by giving a light tug and the harness tightens at the top and then relaxes again. This action brings him straight back to my side! The design of this harness allows you to feel very relaxed knowing your dog is safe and secure too, back in Diggy’s puppy days he was quite the Houdini and would wiggle his way out of harnesses, this would have been the perfect harness back then to stop that from happening!

    I would highly recommend this harness for anybody that has a Houdini dog or a dog with arthritis or simply a dog that appreciates their comforts!

    The harness comes in a variety of colours (everything from baby pink to er…wine) but we chose red, because that’s his favourite. He’s so fancy. We also got him a padded breast section, because being a lurcher he’s very thin-skinned (I mean literally; don’t worry, you can call him all the names you like) and we have bought harnesses before which have rubbed and chafed.
    In order to test the harness, we thought we’d take it out on a walk. With the dog inside it, obviously. With the harness adjusted correctly, it was easy to get on and there was no rubbing at all.
    It was nice and secure; I am confident that we could leave him tethered for a while if need be with no escaping, and it made the walk a lot easier and safer than a collar walk.
    And as it happens, I can now confirm that the harness survived the washing machine on a short cycle, and is now dry and mud-free. Hurrah.
    I’m delighted with the harness and lead. They are both really useful, well made products, which I have no doubt will see a lot of use.

    The martingale harness is just gorgeous and is super comfortable on that chunky little body. It’s lightweight, well made and is so easy to put on! What I especially love about it is that you don’t need to lift any legs to get it on and fasten it up. This would be perfect for old or arthritic dogs but it’s also super for Elsie here because she’s rather reluctant to get up for walkies in the morning…. haha!

    Both the breast and girth sections of the harness are completely adjustable so you’ll have no problems getting it to fit perfectly. The rings at the top of this product are also sturdy but small, perfect for slipping through the lead hole when your dog is wearing a coat or jumper.

    I really love the simplicity of this product. It’s no fuss and super lightweight so it’s perfect for small breeds such as pugs who are prone to getting overheated quickly. As I’ve mentioned before, Elsie does pull when walking (especially when she can smell food!) but I have complete trust in this harness and there’s no way she can wriggle out of it whatsoever.

    Again, another of my own products that I use for my dogs, especially when I want more security. The beauty is that you don’t have to lift any legs up, just pop over the head then clip the belly strap up and you’re away. ~ Sarah
