I had high hopes for this harness but my dog has destroyed it twice and I don’t feel like sending it back for repairs. He’s a Norwegian Elkhound and aside from their incredible forward power they have incredibly deep chests, a boxier frame, and shorter armpit room, so even with numerous adjustments, it never fit his body properly. That said, I think the good reviews are both legitimate and much deserved. It just wasn’t the right harness for my dog in various ways, so consider this review more anecdotal than anything.
My 4 month old puppy is loving his new harness! He used to pull on walks to the point of choking himself, but now he stays at my side and seems really happy! I also love how easy it is to slip on and off.
Definitely works for decreasing pulling. My shepherd mix is a monster puller and this is the only thing that has ever worked for him. That being said, he's getting huge scabs under his armpits from it and they often bleed, so we have stopped using it for now. Looking for a solution so we can keep using it though! He has bad allergies so that might be partially to blame...
Definitely the last harness I will buy, fits great, the magnetic closure is awesome, and can be adjusted in all directions. Finally a harness that fits!
I love this harness. My huskie mix does not like to stay still very long and the harness is easy to put on quickly with the magnetic clasp. Great quality.
I have tried so many harnesses from other reputable brands, but none would fit my pup who is a long and skinny mixed breed. Luckily I found the Atlas harness and it was perfect! Not having a back panel like many of these other harnesses was great for my pup, and I was able to easily adjust the straps to ensure a perfect fit. Also love the magnetic buckle and the ease of taking the harness on and off my dog. The reflective panel is a great touch as well. 10/10 recommending this to all my pup parent friends!
The easy snap buckle and reflective threading is a dream. It might take a couple of adjustments, but I think that we found the right fit. The only downside is that I wish there was a top buckle option as well to mimic a collar + leash setup, since I would love to train my guy to walk well enough to not rely on a harness.
Purchased a harness and collar. Bella grew so fast that both were tight when they arrived. Returned both for next size and customer service was superb. Bella has now been on ten walks with the new harness and it has made a huge difference. No more pulling! Excellent product! Thanks so much.
ok, the pros: I'm more comfortable with a stainless steel D ring for any gear rather than nickle or other. I did the magnet test on the D ring and got a powerful attraction. The harness beats any other I've used in that it's been Houdini proof thus far i e the GSD tried to back out to escape and failed 4 or 5 times, another major plus. Threading seems profesionally done and the webbing, to me, kicks A$$ in appearance. Cons: perhaps the D ring should be thicker because it gives of that ordinary pet store junk just saying.
There are great harnesses. I've long used the PetSafe Easy Walk harness, but i like these better! They are extremely easy to put on the dogs, and the clip that secured the harness when in use is like a seatbelt, so simple to attached and detach, no more fumbling with buckles trying to insert them or release them. Also, the adjustment straps on the chest dont pull out when the dog pulls, this has been a great benefit since i dont have to tighten the straps for each walk. Highly recommend, worth the $$
