What brought this big smile to Luke’s face? He loves his new Ruffwear Front Range Dog Harness!

We first learned about this harness from our friends at K9s Over Coffee (you can read her unsponsored review of two Ruffwear harnesses by clicking here). I am always on the lookout for a better harness, especially since Luke chewed through the last one we were using for walks (which I never loved anyway). We do have a backpack for him which I still like, but lately when I put things in the mesh pockets on it, Luke shakes and everything flies out! There are add-on saddlebags but that seems like overkill when we’re only going for a short walk for training.
Therefore, we needed a harness for walks and training walks. I like the features of the Ruffwear Front Range Harness*:
- Easy to put on and off; it just goes over their head and clips on their back.
- Adjustable in four places. This fits Luke very well, and doesn’t slip around as much as others we’ve had.
- Not that we walk in the dark much, but reflective trim can be very important for those that do.
- Padded chest and belly panel for comfort.
- Both chest and back attachment points. The truth is, I’ve never been thrilled with the chest option. It’s supposed to help with dogs that pull. I had a different harness like that for our late golden Sheba, who loved to pull, and it didn’t slow her down a bit. Instead there was just constant jerking on the lead as she pushed forward, and it drove me crazy! However, I did try the chest point with Luke and it seemed to slow him down a bit, and didn’t jerk quite as bad. I’m going to continue to try it some more. But with attachment points in two places, you have options.
Of course, you know me, it doesn’t hurt that it comes in pretty colors and Luke looks so handsome in it! 🙂
