American River Step-in Dog Harness - Ombre Collection

28 reviews

The American River Ombre Step-in Dog Harness is a colorful harness for fun walks with your furry friend. Easy to put on and take off. Lightweight, breathable fabric makes it comfy for your dog.  

  • Step-in dog harness means front paws go in first for easy on and off
  • Trachea-safe, choke-free design
  • Sizes XXS - 2XL for dogs 2 to 50 pounds (see size guide below)
  • Made from soft, comfortable mesh fabric
  • Closes with Velcro tabs and a plastic clip for double safety
  • Choke-free design directs pressure to your doggy’s chest, not the throat 
  • Patented design allows for 3-inches of adjustment

Mesh fabric keeps your doggy comfy and cool.
American River pet harnesses are made from tightly woven mesh polyester to help keep your pup cool on walks. The fabric is super light and flexible for added comfort. Zigzag stitching adds to this harness's durability. It’s machine washable.

Closures that won’t let go.
This small dog harness closes with Velcro tabs and a heavy-duty plastic clip for added security. The large double D-rings connect to most standard leashes.   

Step-in style for easy on and off.
A step-in pet harness means you put the harness on by slipping your pup’s paws through leg openings on the harness. This is an excellent choice if your doggy is head-shy and fearful of something being pulled over his or her head. FYI, the leg openings on this harness are large enough for the fluffiest of paws.

Choke-free design.
If your little doggy pulls on the leash, this harness safely directs the pressure to your doggy’s chest, not the throat. It's just one more reason so many people choose this harness. The choke-free design also makes this a good harness for use with car seat belts.

Sized just for small dogs.
We have hard to find xxs small harnesses for 2 to 3-pound dogs and puppies. This harness is a great choice for Yorkies, Chihuahuas, Yorkie-poos, Maltese, Shih Tzus, and other small breed dogs.

Available in 10 color options.
Choose from Raspberry Sundae, Aruba Blue, Northern Lights and, Midnight Sky.

For added safety in your car, pair with an adjustable seat belt leash

SIZE GUIDE:

Sizing notes:
Your pup's chest measurement should fall in between the chest measurement of the harness. Most returns are because the harness is too small, so if your dog is on the larger end of a size, it's best to go up to the next size. 

If your dog is right in between sizes, you can order two harnesses and return the one that doesn’t fit for a refund. No problem at all.

        Choosing the right size harness for your little dog. 

        Measure. Measure. Measure. 

        Your dog’s chest measurement is more important than weight when it comes to choosing the correct size harness. Think of it like pants for a human. You can’t pick out the right size pants if you only know someone’s weight.   

        Measure all the way around your dog’s chest, right behind the front legs. Your dog’s chest measurement should fall BETWEEN the chest measurements of the harness. 

        Sizing isn’t standard in the pet world. Size small in one brand isn’t always the same as a small in another brand.

        If your dog is right in between sizes, you can order two harnesses and return the one that doesn’t fit for a refund. No problem at all.

          Well I don't particularly care for the stiffness of the harness. I bought two sizes, one for now and one for later. Only one fit. Also the clasp on the of my two leashes are too small to hook to the harness so ..... My review is my personal experience.
