I have mixed feelings about these harnesses. I have actually purchased (these were not supplied to me free of charge for review) 5 of these in total since I have 7 pups that are a size who can wear these (one is too small to wear them and one needs a coat not a harness in December) both in the red and green and though I absolutely love the look of them, there are some things that concern me. For starters I have furry dogs, Pomeranians mostly and these are very hard to get them on and velcroed with their massive coats, something I should have considered. But it's once I get them on that I have noticed an issue and that's in the stiffness of the neck portion. My dogs just look uncomfortable with that much fabric and very stiff velcro up under their chins. The other issue is the noise of the velcro when adjusting them or taking them off, my 2 female poms hate the noise and want to buck out of the harness so if you have a squeamish dog please consider that! Also, make sure you press that belly velcro to make it secure, I put the dogs in their harnesses and usually turn around to find that 1 or 2 have their harness flopping open by the time I am done.
Size wise, these do run small. All of my dogs that wear these are in the 6 to 10 lb range, with chest measurements from 13 to 16.5 inches and the pups with the 16.5 inch chests JUST fit in this size large harness, if my dogs were any bigger they would not be able to wear them. The neck portion fits all my pups and they have necks that range from 11 to 13 inches BUT the smaller you need to make this at the neckline the more problems you'll have because the velcro is so thick and stiff and then when you clip over that with the short strap it can make it bunch uncomfortably.
I'm not sure I would ever buy this style again but these are very cute and well made and the matching leashes are very nice and make this a good value.
