My English Springer Spaniel hates most dog harnesses but since she doesn't have to "step into" this harness, it's been a BIG plus for her. For me, I'm extremely pleased by the quality construction and material. I also like the fact that this harness can be used as both a service dog harness and a regular walking harness-simply add/remove
the "Service Dog" label. My dog has always walked better in her service dog harness so the fact that this harness can serve as both is a blessing. The only small negative is that if your dog is behind you, and you pull on the harness, it can come off over the head if the harness is not properly adjusted. Since adjusting the harness to a proper fit is easy, I don't consider it any kind of real problem. I think this is a GREAT harness and highly recommend it.
