DaniFani Oh I like the burgandy and dark brown! I've only seen the lighter brown ones and I'm not crazy about the color (I know...least important part of it lol).

DobbyDad Thank you and great photos.

Liesje I got a "Large" when my puppy was about 5 months old and it still fits him as an adult (with room to grow). I think the large is the common size for a GSD. Before I ordered, we tried on Chris Wild's for size and I think she said she'd had hers like 10 years. First pics are burgundy, last ones are a brown one.

DobbyDad I like the look of the Bridgeport. Does anyone have any better photos and what size? Any thoughts on the one from leerburg?

DaniFani Maybe when he's older and bigger I won't like it, but I looove it now :-). Wolfstraum the amish made harness sounds great. If I had the connections I'd def check that out. I am always buying crap for the dog, it's a sickness. I'll probably have three harnesses by the end of this season lol!

wolfstraum I tried doing some with the snaps at the back of the girth - I get them custom made by an Amish harness maker for friends and people at training....harness leather not latigo, and brass hardware and real sheepskin padding - and I don't like them either....I like the traditional style - mine are the same style as Bridgeport sells but with real sheepskin at chestplate...

I have this one too, really like it and this is the one that almost everyone I've trained with uses.

I gotta say though, now that I have my IDC harness, it has replaced ALL other harnesses. I use it for agitation/bitework, nosework (trial harness), flyball, and dock diving (only when Nikon is wearing the GoPro camera, otherwise no harness). I'm selling/giving away all my other harnesses, but I'd still recommend the Bridgeport for anyone who wants a good working harness in that style.
