Default Good harness?

I would like to start teaching Max how to walk on a harness, but am not sure what kind to get. I have read good things about mesh harnesses, and wanted to know if anybody has used this one?

If so any good?
If not what is a good one to start with?

Personally I don't care for the over the head harnesses like that. I prefer step in harnesses.
We have 4 different harnesses and I have had the best luck with the vest type step in harness.
I like Puppia harnesses. A lot of people use BuddyBelt harnesses which is on my to do list to try but until Jaxx needs a new one Puppia works for me

My personal favorites are Puppia and Buddy Belts harnesses.
Both brands make high quality, durable and adorable harnesses.


Here are a couple examples of Puppia ones...

Here are the Buddy Belts...

The puppia looks like the best one that I like. One other thing I am big on fishing in the spring and summer, does anybody know of a good life vest for a chi just incase he does get to close to the water.

Right now he is about three pounds but I think he might get to about 7 or 8 pounds. He is only three months old right now.

Hiya
We like the puppia harnesses for every day use especially on muddy rainy days, but I am also a huge fan of the susan lanci step in harnesses. They are a bit more expensive so its best used for just strolls out in town or the park in good weather and they are very comfy.
As for life jackets, I bought one a couple of years back from g.w little, they don't have the exact same one I bought but this is a very similar one (the color is different,, mine was red) We have used our one a few times and it does the job!

We boat on the ocean a lot in the summer and my chi comes kayaking, etc. with me. We use an Outward Hound life jacket (the one with a little flap underneath the chin) and I like it. Our girl is not the best swimmer and she definitely floats in it. I'm interested in their newer more sleek model, but haven't tried it.
