David Winners Part of what I like about the harness is it's length. It really gets the line out behind the dog like you were saying Nancy.

NancyJ True, when I would use it is going from one place to another instead of the collar but he usually wears his collar its a nice to have not a must have...I like the position because of the control and because he is not as likely to get it caught up in his back legs as he was with a more forward located ring.

David Winners I don't use the front ring on a harness often, as the rear ring offers more directional stimulation with less force. I would think you could sew in a tab with a ring on it if you wanted. They may even do it for you if you asked.

NancyJ Interesting. They did not tell me that but steered me into putting on load rated nylon COBRA buckles instead of the HD Metal since we were doing water work . All it says on the page about HD is the heavy duty has the metal belly clips instead of the nylon -- nothing about an extra D ring

Sagan There are two on the heavy duty harness.

NancyJ I agree with you. An additional one up front would be sweet.

TTristan788 Just got mine it fits great and the straps are real HD! my only complaint would me it needs another D-ring! two would be great.

David Winners Sorry I missed the question about the best plate. I teach the dog to step in. It took about 2 days of clicker sessions with Fama. You can feed a leg through. I don't like undoing the Velcro all the time.

I like training the step in because it gives the dog something to focus on instead of just being excited.

NancyJ FWIW, I did find another the MK VII Sport K9 Harness (there is also a tactical harness) but it was more expensive, only in coyote, and had fastek buckles)....The tactical harness of same brand was more but did have metal cobra buckles and belly mesh. They both look pretty decent though....but I think I did ok.
MK VII Sport K9 Harness - Medium

MK VII Tactical K9 Harness - Medium - K-9

The Signature model, however is tried and true with many good reviews (and a better price) on Amazon. I stuck with ordering it custom so I could get the load bearing buckles.

NancyJ After a lot of shopping around looking the competitors, I ordered the harness with the Cobra PLASTIC buckle which has a load rating of 500lbs so better than Fastek but not as expensive as the metal buckle

Also got the breastplate. I gather that means I will have to feed a leg through but I may look at making some kind of modification so I can put the yoke over the head then clip. Though folding up the front leg is no big deal, I guess. He is getting used to it as am I.

I verified that we would NOT need any extension straps (he is 31" around the chest now and may add a little more as he bulks up but at 2.5, I doubt much more "bulking" is going to happen.) So for now he is on the small side of Medium in a patrol harness (I have a small H-style patrol harness which is really too snug for him)
