By “kind of” I mean that I am built roughly like a barrel. Wide, deep beagle chest with a short stout pug body. I look like Rodney Dangerfield in dog form. A few months back, the Mama had to replace our car harnesses. If you’re one of our fabulous friends that has been visiting for a while, you might recall that it was quite the pain in the tail to find something that would even fit my tragically awkward little sausage body.
I have needed a new walking harness for about a bajillion months.
Still damaged by the challenge of buying our car harnesses, the Mama has been putting it off and putting it off. She just didn’t want to go through the fitting process again. Apparently, trying to fit me for a new harness is like trying to wrestle nylons onto an octopus. As if the Mama could even know how hard THAT is. She is so melodramatic.
Even with the challenges getting me fitted, the Mama was adamant that we needed them. The Mama is a strong believer in harnesses, especially for pups like Felix who may pull on the leash
more than a bit. Collars can pose a health and safety risk when not used correctly. Check out our post on harnesses & why they are better.
We were thrilled when we were given the opportunity to review two of the great harnesses from Ezy Dog.
The nice folks at Ezy Dog seemed pretty confident that their Chest Plate Harness would fit my odd little body with no problem. They promised this harness was super adjustable and designed to fit any body type properly.
The Chest Plat Harness delivered all that and more.
When the package arrived, I looked at the Mama with all the excitement of cat in the bathtub. I eyed her up like we were in an old Western movie about to have a showdown. I was not standing still while she fussed and bothered with that thing.
To my surprise (and the Mama’s extreme delight), the harness went on me with no problems whatsoever! All it took was a minute to adjust the straps and we were done. Just like that, it fit and I had a new harness. Well, hot diggity dog!
The Chest Plate is pretty darn nifty too.
My harness is like, space age and smart and junk. The Chest Plate made of EVA, a formable material, which is really cool. The more I wear my harness, the more the chest plate material will mold to my chest creating the perfect fit and helping to keep the harness from sliding around when I run like a manic on my leash. Cool beans!
The Mama also noticed that I haven’t been working on my sled-dog impression as much since I got this harness.
I am usually pretty good on my leash, but sometimes, it may slip my mind that a gentleman always walks with a lady, not two blocks ahead of her. The Ezy Dog Chest Plate Harness makes it difficult for me to get my pull on, which only makes the Mama love it more.
Felix got to try a new harness too!
99.9% of the time poor Felix gets lft out of all the blogging fun, so he was pretty much *delighted* when EzyDog asked him to try a harness out as well.
The Quick Fit Harness was so easy to use.
Seriously, even the Daddy can put it on. The harness must be like magic if the Daddy can use it! This simple harness just slips over your dogs head, gets a strap clipped around the belly and off you go! All the benefits of a harness, just as easy as a collar!
The front of the harness is covered with sturdy, long lasting neoprene, making it extra comfy for your pup. This unique design lets the chest strap sit where it belongs – across the chest – and even if your pup pulls, it will not be putting pressure on the delicate areas of the throat. With Felix, this is really important. Even though he is a recovering puller, he still loses his cool and goes on a pulling spree every now and again. We did notice that he initially pulled more than usual when we tried this harness, but he appears not to have had any other issues after that.
Aside from being an awesome choice for any dog and far superior to a regular collar, this harness has some pretty good safety features. The Chest Plate harness comes with a removable seat belt restraint, making it a safe choice to keep you from roaming around in the car.
the Felix and I are black dogs and walking at night an be a real concern. The Ezy Dog harnesses make the Mama feel so much better! Each harness has reflective stitching that catches the light, improving visibility and making us safe when we walk at night.
Quality is Essential
When we received the harnesses, the Mama looked them all over. Checking that the stitches were ll tight, the hardware was thick & sturdy and that the harnesses were top notch quality. She was more than satisfied with the attention to detail and the quality craftmanship.
After two weeks of heavy wear and tear, the harnesses still look as good as new! Now that is exciting news!
The Ezy Dog Chest Plate Harness & the Quick Fit Harness get the Kolchak Puggple, paw print of approval.
