Mesh fabric keeps your doggy comfy and cool.
American River small dog harnesses are made from tightly woven mesh polyester to help keep your pup cool on walks. The fabric is lightweight and flexible for added comfort. Zigzag stitching is used for durability. The harness is machine washable.

Harness closes with Velcro closures AND snaps.  
This pet harness closes with Velcro tabs and a strong plastic clip for added safety. Two D-rings connect to most standard leashes.

Step-in style for easy on and off.
A step-in dog 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 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.

For added safety in your car, pair this harness with a dog seat belt

        Dinky dog harness

        I will have to take in the neck some. I can get a whole fist in her harness, altho the chest fits fine. Not what I expected but I can sew and make it work.

        Her new harness is pink and it fits perfectly. She likes to wear it when we take her out for walks and other things. It's very easy to put on.
