The top half of the harness is very flimsy as well. The vest is made poorly and does withstand much tension at all.
They are both adjustable which is great. The size holds and doesn't loosen over time. Fits perfect not bulky.
Simplicity, sturdiness, comfort and safety are most important to me. Hope it is holds up to getting wet alot! This harness is very durable.
Harness is easy to put on and take off. A bit harder at first to get on a squirming puppy, but once adjusted fits well and allows free gait. The buckles are large and easy to use. Chest buckles, which some of the more expensive ones do not have.
This is the 3rd harness we have bought. This one is thicker and stronger. Bought 2 more for holiday occasions.
The small is perfect for him. They are also very nicely padded. The material is strong yet the inside mesh is comfortable for even the smaller dogs.
Perhaps it is not good for dachshunds. Too stiff. They are made small. The large/xlarge size looks more like it would fit a medium sized dog better!
