Most people actually use the tracking harness for protecting (it has the chest pad). I think it's a little cheaper.

This is the one a lot of people use.. And like Lies said, it's cheaper.. I've had mine (size medium) for over 7 years now and it's been used on 3 different dogs..

I bet you'll get it within a week. When I ordered mine, I got it within 3 days(but I am closer to them). I got mine back yesterday that I loaned out, made me happy to finally have it back after a year!

We've been doing a lot of prey work with him tied to a pole, getting him to bark while in drive, he's really going to appreciate the harness...

Does your trainer have one you can borrow when you work with him?

He was going to bring one last week but forgot.... he said he'd bring it this week for sure... just been doing it with a flat collar. Hopefully by next week Yoschi will have his own

Lots of great suggestions on here...

I wanted to share a great leather place that I use:
Zukak9.com

They do all their own leather work and make it for you. Very fast, very good quality, and same (if not lower) price than everyone else. I have my agitation collar and leashes from them, and will be ordering a harness soon too. Their guarentee is also great too... just in case anything gets damaged.

I too would suggest a harness first. I barely use my collar now... I use a harness the most.

Another vote for the Bridgeport harness... love it. Have had it about 4 years now and used it on my two dogs plus friends and club dogs. Still looks fairly new.

I also bought the agitation collar for Zefra because I needed that extra bit of control on occasion. It is 2" wide, felt inside for a bit more padding and has a nice handle, also has the extra 'D ring' on it. I love it, although I don't use it often.. I tend to use the fursaver with a prong on another lead.
