American River Polka Dot Step-in Dog Harness

61 reviews

A little frill, a few polka dots, and a satin bow. Same great American River Step-In Dog Harness. 

This version of our popular American River step-in dog harness vest is dressed up with polka dot trim, a little ruffle, and two decorative heart-shaped buttons. Smiles will light up when people see your little gal strut her stuff in this harness! 

  • Step-in style dog harness means front paws go in first for easy on and off
  • Ultra-choke free design protects trachea by directing pressure from leash pulling to the chest instead of the neck
  • 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 
  • Sizes XS - XL for dogs 4 to 40 pounds (see size guide below)
  • Available in Pink, Purple, and Teal

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 the 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

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. 

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

      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.

      The American River Harness is also available in the following color options:

        Size didn’t fit

        Very pretty harness, but a medium didn’t fit my dog and a large is too big

        Princess harness

        Lily loves the vest. The purple looks great on her. She doesn’t fight with me to put it on. It goes on easily. We liked it so much, we ordered more colors.

        Great product

        This harness was so cute, but unfortunately it was way to small for my fur baby.
