My Favorite Dog Harness – The Puppia!


Oh dog harnesses! I have known quite a few. Today I am reviewing my absolute favorite dog harness The Puppia.

Through the years I have tried many dog harnesses and have also watched my acrobatic pup escape from quite a few harnesses. Many of these harnesses have been advertised as escape proof, but more than once been I have been left standing with just the leash and harness in hand! Less than ideal or safe!

The Puppia dog harness is my workhorse dog harness that delivers as promised.

Fits The Hard To Fit Pup

The fit of any harness is definitely a key to the success of any harness. Each dog is different and of course it is difficult to standardize dog harnesses to fit all. My dog happens to be in between the standard sizes of a dog harness and is a small-medium size.

The straps are easily adjusted to fit dogs between sizes or for dogs with hair instead of fur. My pup also has curly thick hair which grows quickly between grooming visits; the adjustable straps are very convenient for the size difference between a freshly groomed pup and ‘fuzzy’  season.


Easy To Put On

The Puppia harness is very easy to 'install' with only one clip to manage. The harness does go over the dog’s head which can be a concern if your dog does not care for that type of harness. 

The front legs are inserted through the leg openings or the dog can step into the leg opening. The one piece design I believe lends to the strength of the harness as the majority of the harness is material and not clips or nylon.Sometimes less is more!

Lightweight and Strong

The Puppia Dog Harness is lightweight with the mesh construction and deceptively strong. My pup is a “puller” especially when encountering squirrels during a walk. The pup has yet to escape from the harness.

Breathable And Water Resistant

The harness material is breathable and water resistant; both useful features for warmer and inclimate weather.  I’ve used this harness in driving rain and snowstorms and it is durable!


Washable

The harness is machine washable, however the manufacturer does recommend hand washing and air drying. I have had no problems machine washing the harness on the gentle cycle (and even dried the harness on air dry in the dryer).

Variety of Colors

Who doesn’t like to add a little fashion to the daily walk? The Puppia harness comes in a variety of solid colors and fun prints. Don't forget the color coordinated Puppia leashes!


Recommendation


I highly recommend the Puppia dog harness!

  1. We took our lab on a mountain hike just last weekend down the side of a waterfall. The pathway was slippery and very narrow. Although Merlin did great (he leaps like a deer), I would have felt better if he had a sturdy harness that he would not slip out of if he slipped off the path. This might be just what I am looking for now!

    1. I have found this harness to be slip proof (at least for my furball!)

  2. This looks like the perfect harness for any size dog and dogs whose sizes change between groomings. I don't have a dog, but my brother/SIL does. I will tell them about this harness for Abbi, a Boston Terrier who is hard to 'fit'. Excellent review of a needed item for dog owners.

  3. I love this style of harness. It is the kind I use with my poodle mix, Finn. A harness that works is one of the most critical pet supplies you can own. Beautiful dogs!

  4. Great harness. I like these much better than a collar and leash. Somehow this just makes more sense to me. Thanks for a great review.

  5. Thanks for such a wonderful, informative review. If I ever get another dog, I will definitely look into getting one of these harnesses. They sound like just the ticket!
