    It's called the Together harness, from Karen Pryor
    http://www.clickertraining.com/node/3719

    It's adjustable in 5 areas, it is the FIRST harness that really fits Seamus well. He's a standard poodle with a deep chest and fairly long back.

    It's funny, just as she says her poodle does, Seamus puts his head into the harness. He really likes it!

    From the website:
    Here's what makes these harnesses truly comfortable:
    • The straps go around the neck and ribs, down the back, and down the middle of the chest in such a way that they don't rub and chafe under the armpits or interfere with the free motion of the shoulders, as many harnesses do.
    • The girth goes around the ribcage so it doesn't shift forward and pinch.
    • The harness unbuckles in two places so it goes on easily and you never have to cram the dog into it.
    • The fastenings, both metal and plastic, are strong, durable, and hypo-allergenic. They are specially made with rounded corners so nothing ever pokes the dog.
    • The woven webbing is soft to the touch, and soft on the dogs, but it's totally washable and lifetime durable—not just the dog's lifetime, but yours, too.

    That harness really looks good, I'd not have known about it if you hadn't posted here so I really appreciate your taking the time to post.

    I like that Seamus is giving such a good reference, he's the one who is wearing the harness so he's certainly well qualified to review it!

    I've probably had 4 or 5 harness for him through the years. I have a step in harness, a RuffWear Webmaster, that fits very well, but it's a step on so not as convenient as the one I got, the Together harness.
    I use the webmaster for both the dogs when I use my FitPaws stuff, my peanut, etc...

    Here's the webmaster harness..http://www.ruffwear.com/Web-Master-Harness_2?sc=2&category=1131
    It looks like a lot, but it's really very simple to put on..

    I can see that the together harness is about providing a comfortable alternative to a collar but the webmaster is about being able to lift and help the dog over obstacles. So the Together harness is perfect for a walk in the park and the Webmaster is ideal for trail walking. Different purposes and each well designed for their respective purpose (y)
