Kima's new pulling and balance harness (item #707586Y) arrived yesterday. Today, we had the chance to actually use it for the first time and received MANY compliments.
More importantly to me than the outward appearance of any gear is the construction. Her new harness is easy to get on and off and is everything I'd hoped it would be. As always, the quality is what I've come to expect from Active Dogs……excellent!!
Safety and visibility is a huge concern to me. The reflective stitching provides a great deal of peace of mind.
I use an ultralight wheelchair whenever I'm out and about. Most of the time, I typically propel myself, but there are times when I need Kima's help pulling or to stand (from sitting or from the floor). This harness with its easy to grasp sturdy handle totally fits my needs.
The sizing description on the website is spot-on accurate. Kima is a (mostly) Karelian Bear Dog. KBDs are a Finnish breed which are only slightly larger than an Aussie. I had to adjust the straps to the smallest setting, but the fit is perfect. Her successor will most likely be a larger breed and I will be able to use the harness with him or her. (I'll just have to get a new customised name patch!)
I'm attaching 2 photos, front and side view. If you would like to use this as a recommendation or review, I give Active Dogs full permission to use both my words and her pictures.
Thanks for making high quality, yet affordable, gear for working dogs. So many people, myself included, in the disabled community live on limited incomes. It's nice to know that Active Dogs exists!
Yes, I would recommend this product.

My dog prefers this harness
I've been using this harness exclusively for several months. It is exactly the right height for me to hook fingers under the firmly attached loop as my dog pulls me. More importantly, my dog seems to prefer this to the padded vest when she is pulling, especially in summer months. All points of contact, even the underside of the upper part over the dog's back, are covered in sherpa to reduce or eliminate stress points. This is a perfect harness for anyone needing a pull, whether the handler needs help walking or is in a wheelchair.
Yes, I would recommend this product.

Pulling & Balance Harness
Another great product! The design, quality, placement of patches requested, and workmanship are superb. I really like this harness because it is truly comfortable and unobtrusive for my service dog - which is super important to me. It is a "close-fit harness" so it is well worth taking the time to do the initial adjustments of the straps. After your dog wears it for a while, check for any possible areas on your dog that indicate any straps need to be tightened or more loose i.e. over-rubbed skin, etc... Keep in mind this harness is designed to fit so that it is more fitted, not loose. It was worth the time to make repeated adjustments - my service dog now LOVES this harness - and it meets my needs as well. We also have, use and love the Padded Harness Vest

Works wonderfully. I'm a paraplegic in a wheelchair. My dog is training to pull and move my chair. It seems comfortable for her and it's easy to use for me. This is the first harness we've found that doesn't rub her or slide around. I highly recommend it.

Pulling and Balance Harness
Great product and very well constructed with a lot of thought put forth as to the comfort of the dog. My servce dog, Maggie, a 2 1/2 year old Rottie loves it. I've tried a number of different harnesses, however have always had concerns for her comfort. With this one, if I don't keep it out of her reach, she keeps bringing it to me.
