Like all dogs, Bob loves going for walks! However, he’s such a big boy that we’ve found leashes to be a bit of an issue. For example, one day Jai was walking Bob, and the loveable lab got so excited about something he saw that he actually bent the collar’s clasp, which caused it to come off of him. That’s not supposed to happen! Luckily, nothing bad happened because Bob is a good boy and didn’t run off, but it could have been disastrous.
That’s why we took Ezy Dog up on their offer to send over one of their chest plate harnesses. There were two features that stood out to us about this: First of all, it wraps around the body, making it Houdini-proof for rambunctious pooches that want to pull a disappearing act. Second, it includes a car restraint attachment, which sounded like a great thing for days when Bob wants to ride in the car.
The thing that was tricky about this harness is the fact that Bob is so big. It did fit on him just perfectly when it was at its absolute max around his chest; because you can’t put it on while it is loose and then tighten it up, we found that you had to get it just right the first time putting it on, so it took a little more time to get set up initially. If you have a very big dog, just size the chest harness out to its maximum, and snap it on a little far forward on the dog and then it will slip into place.
Once Bob got used to it, he seemed to like it.He had a bit of a stiff posture as he got used to it, but he didn’t have a problem with it. Jai thinks this will make walksies more comfortable for everyone, and we’re also liking the handy seat belt attachment. The Ezy Dog Chest Plate Harness retails for $25 and is the perfect thing for enjoying summer days with your dog!
