Step-in style dog harness for easy on and off.
A step-in dog harness goes on feet first. You put your pup's front legs through the leg openings and 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. Super easy. 

A step-in harness is a great choice for dogs fearful of having something pulled over their 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 lower cut harness safely directs the pressure to your dog's chest, not 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.

SIZE GUIDE: (If your dog harness doesn't fit, we'll exchange it for free!)

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

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

      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.

        This harness fit perfectly. My pup is 2.5 lbs. He didn't mind it on at all.

        Not only is the FIT perfect the craftsmanship is excellent

        We purchased the step-in-harness' X2 (PINK) for our 5 lb shih tzu's. We are manufacturers that use very similar materials for our racing restraints, the attention and craftsmanship is excellent, I would have never though of, reflexive strips..... brilliant. Our wee girls love to be harnessed up. We are not purchasers of Dinky Dog's other products.

        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. Now, my little Daisy is a little over 8 pounds and is outgrowing the size small, so I will be ordering another one in size medium. I can't say enough about the great customer service that I received and also the excellent quality of the harnesses.
