Mesh fabric dog harness keeps your doggy comfy and cool.
American River 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. Zig-zag stitching adds to this harness's durability. It’s machine washable.

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

American River Step-in Dog Harness - Grey

Step-in style for easy on and off.
A step-in 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 harness design.
If your little pup pulls on the leash, this harness safely directs the pressure to your dog's chest, not the throat. The no-choke design is just one more reason so many people choose this harness for their furry friend. 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 seven camo colors.
Brown, Grey, Pink, Orange, Green, Purple or Blue   

For added safety in your car, pair the American River step-in harness with an adjustable seat belt leash


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. 

Not sure which size to buy? You can always order two and return one for a full refund.

          Yes, the xxs fit the little one perfectly. My other dog is 12 and his harness was one that you pulled over his head. Now that he has a neck issue the step in harness was great!

          2.25 # Yorkie puppy-

          Easy to put on-fits well-clasp and d rings are a little bulky on the back of such a tiny harness. I’m not sure how to address that because a smaller d ring wouldn’t fit a leash snap-and you need two for security
