This fits my mini Aussie perfectly! This is super reflective so perfect at night. I love that it has 2 separate places to latch a leash and it has double security with Velcro straps and the buckle clips right over it!
We call it our dog's "alternative lifestyle" harness based on the styling of it. Fit is ok, but one of our dog's front legs always slips out. We can probably remedy it by making some adjustments to the straps. He's always kind of an odd shape, so it might be partly his issue. He's a big-boned 15 pound Chihuahua mix, and fits the small one of these. It's a good harness for the price. The Puppia ones are a higher price point but worth it, more flexible/comfortable fit.
For some reason my dog hates to have her harness put on (she just turned 1) but this is the best fitting one I've found and once she has it on she's good to go. I tried a few and really like how this one adjusts and has 2 places to connect the leash. It seems to be of good quality. When she sees a squirrel, bird, another dog, etc. she can get a lot of strength in her pull and I feel secure with her in this one.
I had tried two kinds of gentle leaders for my dogs in the past, the hardness kind, and the head color. Neither seemed to discourage pulling. So I switched to a prong collar, and used those for al long time. I would try to stop walking when they got ahead of me, I tried lots of positive reinforcement when they walked next to me. They did get better. I would frequently loosen them, but collars would get stuck in one's hair and drift lower down their neck. But I really really wanted to get away from the prongs. I was always cautious to make sure they weren't getting injured, but it was a TON of work. Then, I tried this, and magic. I use short bungee leaches attached to a belt. This was perfect once you get it adjusted properly.
One Golden Doodle is 61 pounds, (from a standard poodle) is very slender. The large seemed perfect for him, though perhaps he could use a smaller one becasue the neck is at it's smallest size. He is tall, so he can fill out the front. he has a 14.5 inch neck though.
I have a rescue who is 51, and the large is way too big for her. Her neck is 15" but her girth is 29.5. She is definitely on the slender side. So I will have to try a medium on her. She still pulled and the front pad would just gape and twist on her.
So if you have a more slender dog, I would recommend to pay more attention to the neck size, than the chest size. (assuming the smaller ones will still fit on the deeper chest...)
My only wish is that all the boots and barkley's harnesses had front clips as well, so this wouldn't be our only no-pull option.
