        Perfect for head-shy dogs!

        by Piper

        Well worth the money. One of the best purchases I have ever made for my sweet, curious, and head-shy adopted dog.

        Great Product!!!

        by Deb

        I picked up my Balance Harness at the Fenzi Camp and Boo and I love it. I use it to walk him and also when we work on our Parkour exercises. It is sturdy and easy to put on him. He associates it with fun training.
        <br>Thanks for this great product.

        After 3 years...

        by Rob

        Pro tip: Order the correct size. The first one I bought was a ‘Large’, mistakenly thinking Daisy would grow into it. Our little lab topped out at 68 lbs. and 21 in. with a bit of a barrel chest. A second one in ‘M/L’ reduced her eagerness to pull while leashed, without impeding her range of motion.
        <br>As to the harnesses themselves, both examples are very well made and their adjustability made finding a good fit very easy. Assuming the correct size range. I got the buckle-neck version as a 'just-in-case' safeguard, since our pup was a rescue who'd never spent much time on a leash. While the additional buckle doesn't make a difference when we're putting it on, she is fond of flopping after our walks and appreciates the ability to remove her harness without the inconvenience of her needing to raise her head.
        <br>It’s been a great harness since the day we got one that fits. Doing it again, I’d make exactly the same choice, just in the correct size to begin with.

        My dog now walks toward her harness

        by Anna

        My dog has fear with many things but one thing she no longer worries about is putting on her harness. She’s naturally always loved walks but would run away/try to hid from previous ones. The buckle neck did the trick!! Now nothing goes over her head and without any training on my part she now runs towards me to get the harness on for walks. She now has two and we will likely get more for color options since they don’t seem to wear out.

        Worth the investment

        by Joy F

        I have a 140 pound Great Pyrenees. A trainer suggested we try this harness and I’m glad I did! I love the versatility of having two points on the harness to connect the leash to. I will say it is a little confusing at first. My mom still can’t figure out the buckles:) I also ordered online from Canada so it was a little pricey but the investment is worth it.

        No more harness battles!

        by ML

        I bought these for my two small dogs - one is quasi reactive to other dogs and the other does not like harnesses. They have made a world of difference for both dogs - no more battles to put the harness on - And they love them!

        9/20/2019 1:36 pm

        2yrs later and still like new. wear it almost every day.

        by Jas

        I have been through many harness. The Balance Harness and the Brilliant K-9 are the ones we both agree are the best for us. I had gotten our harness without the buckle-neck, this is a must have in my opinion. So I will eventually get a new harness with that included. it has been in the ocean many times and is holding up well. we have had it over two years now.

        Absolutely the best.

        by Matt

        My dog will not abide a slip-over harness. I used a slip-over for several years and she was fine putting it on, but would panic and pull when trying to take it off. I was thrilled when I found this neck buckle harness. She's calm as can be and it makes both of our lives much less stressful.

        Doesn't look it, but a great harness

        by Roger

        When I got this, I wasn't impressed. It didn't look that much different from the Wal-Mart harness I'd bought that my dog tried to chew off.
        <br>For whatever reason, my dog doesn't mind this harness at all. She'll wait while I put it on her. It works great for taking her for walks. I don't have to worry about her choking on a chain and she's more responsive to tugs on the leash which I attach to the back D-ring.

        Great Harness

        by Jami

        Amazing. We have a rescue dog with a wide variety of breeds. Consequently she has a large check area compared to the size of her head with is much smaller. We tried other harnesses but because of the difference in the head and chest size she was able to pull herself out of the harness. This harness has allowed us to fit it perfectly to her special needs.

        Great Harness, but Gets the #2 Spot for Me

        by Susan

        I ordered this harness hoping to have an improvement over my current “go to” harness. Unfortunately it did win the #1 spot, but it’s a close 2nd. Pros: The neck buckle makes this super easy to put on your dog. It also seems pretty sturdy. I also like that there are several adjustments you can make to customize the fit. Cons: I have to say that I feel like my dog pulls more with this harness than my other one. I only use the front clip because she pulls terribly if I use the back clip (same with my other harness). I like the idea of allowing more freedom in movement but it just was not executed well. There is no means to keep the girth strap from sliding forward. You almost need some elastic or something to achieve that. It starts out 2” behind the legs and eventually ends right behind the legs fairly quickly.

        Pretty perfect

        by Kristel

        I love the fit and versatility of this harness! Well made, too. Exactly what I wanted!

        Love this product and would definitely buy again if needed

        by Kathleen

        Love this product. My dogi kept escaping multiple different harnesses and even a full seat belt harness in the car, but never this one. What I love best about it is that there are multiple clips for easy adjustment as the dog grows. The clips are thoughtfully placed in areas of comfort for the dog so that they don’t dig into or rub sensitive areas. The harness moves to adjust with the position of the dog. The harness has held up well over the almost two years I have had it with no visible wear except a fading of the blue colored strip. It is easy to put on and take off. The only enhancement I would make for the future is a color coded strip for the left or right side buckle strap or both that go around the girth. As there are two clips, this would help with efficiency in connecting the right buckle to strap and help ensure it is being put on properly with no twisting. Recommend this product highly and continue to buy again. Mine is paired with an EZ stretch capable lead by Top Paw

        Perfect fit!

        by Brandi H

        This harness is wonderful! I’ve tried several on one of my dogs and I finally found a winner. It was easy to fit and doesn’t rub behind his legs like another front hook harness I tried. I like the option of using the front or back hook (or both with the multi function leash). Definitely worth the money!

        by Kristel

        This harness is COOL. I love how adjustable it is, and that the buckle neck means I can adjust it properly and not have to compensate for my brachycephalic dog’s big head. The nylon is soft and strong. It’s made really well with all edges turned out so they don’t rub the dog. I love all the leash-connection options, and that in spite of all the features, this harness isn’t at all bulky, even on my small dog. You thought of everything!

        Best harness ever 🐾

        by Wylie D.

        Hi Wylie here! I love my new Balance harness-when Mom first put it on me I looked back to see if I had anything on. Mom says she likes it too cause it’s easy to get off and on and she knows I’ll be safe. My brother Buzz has one too.

        The best and safest harness out there!

        by Jenna

        1. The positioning of the straps is perfect because it won't put pressure or restrict movement for your dog. With a large breed dog we wanted the safest option to protect our berners chest, arms, and shoulders.
        <br>2. I love how easy it is to put on with the buckle neck and double buckle girth straps - your dog will thank you too!
        <br>3. The harness can be altered on all sides for the perfect fit and grows with your dog too so you don't have to replace too often. Our 110lb berner has been in the large size since he was about 8 months and has plenty of room to grow.
        <br>4. The D rings on the front and back of the harness is perfect to keep the dog balanced for walks, or to have the option on where to put the leash. I personally use a double leash with one end on the back of the harness and the other on both the front and collar so he won't slip out - more control and he doesn't pull as much.

        K9 Balance Harnass - works great!

        by Lynn Leotta

        After ordering the incorrect size, I finally received the perfect fit today and this new size works terrific. My Vet recommended your harness due to an injury my dog sustained and after using it today I comfortable and confident taking him for his walks. Easy to fit and easy to control. Thinking of ordering another for my puppy soon.

        The BEST harness!!

        by Thi

        I've gone through no less than 5 harnesses from different companies so far in my puppy's life and this is absolutely my favorite strap harness. I use this one along with a padded harness for different occasions. My favorite thing is just how ADJUSTABLE it is. You can adjust ALL the straps!! No more annoying short top strap or too long chest strap, just a perfect fit. I also love how lightweight, and comfortable this harness is. My pup doesn't seem to mind having it on. If you're looking for a strap harness, this is it.

        Worry-free training for “a puller”

        by Jessica

        This harness gives me the leverage to keep my boxer with me when seeing a squirrel and provides free range of motion which was the main reason for purchase. I adopted him as an adult. He was not leash-trained and was dog aggressive/unsocialized. So I wanted something that hooked to his chest, but a previous style harness rubbed all the hair off of his shoulders from his strong pulling. So I switched to this and continued training without worrying about his shoulders. Now he’s a gentleman on walks, no longer pulls at all (unless there is a squirrel!). After two years the harness is in great shape, although the black webbing has faded to a reddish colour now where the sun hits it. I bought medium/large which for my deep-chested 70lb boxer *just fits* around the chest at maximum size. All other straps are at the tighter setting so I might consult before getting another one to get a more adjustable chest strap - maybe a custom size?

        Terrific Harness

        by Mary

        This is the second Balance Harness I've gotten. The first was for my Smoothie and now I got one for my Sheltie. I love the harness because it is easy to put on and it doesn't chafe under the arms.

        This Harness Has You Covered!

        Love this harness! Front and back attachment rings are perfect! No over the head.
        <br>Light weight. Great for a leash or a longline. Thank You!

        The Best Harness!

        by Meg

        I had a lot of trouble getting a harness to fit my weimaraner. This harness has lots of adjustment option to work with the large chest - and with no rubbing under the front legs! It has also been incredibly durable. I'm just about to order another one, just to get another colour option.
