The Step-in Strider dog harness is a comfortable small dog harness designed for more enjoyable walks.

Step-in style dog harness for easy on and off.
A step-in dog harness is made so your pup's front paws go in first. Once you put your pup's front paws through the leg openings, you then wrap the harness over your dog's back. To remove the harness, unbuckle the harness and lower it to the floor so your pup can step out. The Step-in Strider is very easy to get on and off your dog.  

A step-in harness is a great choice if you have a dog afraid of having something pulled over his or her head. 

"After trying a couple of other harnesses on this site and not having any luck fitting my puppy, and such amazing customer service, I purchased the Step In Strider in a size small and it fit perfectly! It also came with a leash, which was an extra bonus." - Janet

Choke-free design.
If your little doggy pulls on the leash, you'll be happy to know this harness is low cut and sits below your pup's throat. If your pup pulls on the leash or lunges at another dog, all of that pulling pressure is directed to your dog's chest, instead of the throat. 

The choke-free design also makes this a good harness for use with car seats and seat belt leashes.

Breathable fabric to keep your doggy comfy and cool.
Step-In Strider dog harnesses are have a vented liner and a honeycomb shell to help keep your pup cool on walks in warmer climates. The fabric is lightweight and flexible to allow your pup to move naturally.

Sizing notes:
The chest measurements below are the size of the actual harness. Your pup's chest measurement should fall between those measurements. 

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.

Chest: 10.5"-13.4" 
Weight: 3 - 6.5 lbs.

    Medium Dog Harness
    Chest: 13.8"- 15.5"

    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.

      Yes, it fits in perfectly. He’s just a little guy. He’s only 5 pounds and that’s it.

      The best harness

      I’ve bought, and then given away, four harnesses that my dog was able to slip out. This one is great! He can’t slip out, and it doesn’t choke him.
