Our New Harnesses!

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  Mags and I couldn't decide who would get to do today's post, so we drew straws.  She ate her piece of straw, so I win.  Anyway, today we're going to tell you all about our new CTC Dog Gear Oxford Shoulder Harnesses!  (Remember, words that are that color and underlined are hyperlinks!)

Mags and me in action!

Maggie is wearing blue and I'm wearing purple.


Our mom got them for us after a friend's recommendation. They are strong, secure (note to the OP Pack: there is NO backing out of these babies!), and comfortable!


They allow great freedom of movement and don't have any pinch points or areas where they rub. Look at how happy Maggie is, even when she's pulling:

Cool action shot!

For the record, I just don't pull. I'd rather walk beside Mom or Dad, or slightly out front. I pretended to pull for the photo shoot.

Speaking of the shoot, Mom and Dad drove out to Keats for the shoot; Dad walked us around while Mom took pix with the Canon. Mom liked the photos better than the ones she took the other day, so we thought we'd use these for our big review!


Mom wasn't sure about sizing for us, but there is a very helpful chart right on the CTC Dog Gear site - and Natalie walked Mom through the whole process! What great customer service!!! She made it totally easy for us!

They fit us perfectly!!!

There are strips of reflective tape on the front and back of the harnesses - what a great safety feature!

Did I mention they are super-strong?

We love the colors Mom chose - the royal blue looks so good on Maggie, and I just love having a purple one! Mom thought these would be easy to keep clean - and since they can be worn swimming, they can certainly be washed!  Perfect!

As we mentioned, Mom and Dad like them so much, they've already ordered two more as "back ups". What colors do you think we got? Hint: they're very FUN colors!

These CTC Dog Gear Shoulder Harnesses make our adventures so much fun! Dad said, after he walked us in them for the first time, that he could tell we were comfortable and like them! We love them - and as a result, we've been going on even longer walks! Talk about a win-win situation!

Mom took this closing shot of us out on our walk this morning:

We got to do some "extra" exploring!

We're so happy when we find a product we really like; it was our pleasure to tell you about the CTC Dog Gear harnesses.  You'll be seeing us in them a LOT!



  1. Thanks for the great review. Lots of good information and super pics. Mom is going to tell Duncan's Mom about them. She is thinking about getting one for Ciara because she doesn't pul. But Lightning still pulls so he has to wear his gentle leader. That might not work so well with a harness. But maybe one day . . . .

  2. I finks you girls look pawsome in your new pretty harnesses and is laffing at Mags eating her straw! Nice one Mags….was it tasty?

  3. Those harnesses do look GREAT! Momma is going to look over them because Jessie needs a new harness.

  4. you girls look great. we still think your mom needs roller skates or something to walk you though. :) mom said she may have to look into one of these for our cousin woofie

  5. Wow! Those are really nice! A wonderful Christmas pressie I think!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  6. those do look comfortable - we had to search high and low to find a non nylon webbing harness though - they chaffe the dweeb really badly. We eventually found one made by Cesare Milan and it is soft woven cotton thread - the only ones we have seen like that.

  7. Very cool! We love the colors
    Lily & Edward

  8. Your new harnesses are just beautiful! Did you get matching collars and leashes too? We noticed an extra hook at your shoulder area. We need to hit the link to find out why it's there. BTW, Maggie. I'm a super-duper puller so not all harnesses will work for me. We gotta check these out!

    Love ya lots♥
    Molly and Mitch

  9. Great Review Cammie! I love the colors and they look like they fit your perfectly. Hunter pulls when we first start our walk, but he is so small that I'll have to check sizes.

  10. Those harnesses look really cool. And the most important part for Cocoa would be the no backing out of them!!

  11. Those harnesses look nice! if our mom didn't need the lift harness "just in case" for Wriggley, she'd be all over them. thanks for sharing!
    Are your back ups going to be camo colored? (not to be confused with Cammie colored...sorry...couldn't resist... :D )

  12. They look totally pawsome!! We are also glad you found comfy harnesses!!!
