Agitation Collar recommendation

I'm leaning towards the leerburg
Leerburg | Leather Dog Harnesses
But the snaps make me nervous.... I'd prefer the trigger snaps

In my researching threads I saw several recommendations for the Bridgeport

I'm not afraid of spending $120 on a harness, but is the leerburg one worth it?
I'm open for suggestions
Thanks
Joe

I would go with Bridgeport, very good quality and the price is great. You won't wear it out, thats for sure...so no reason to go uber priced.

Yoschi would fit into a medium now but will need a large soon enough... is it not that big of a deal to buy one a bit too large and have him grow into it?

I agree with Jane on the Bridgeport. That's what I have. I got Nikon a large and he's on the smaller side for male GSDs (he's 4 years old and 70-75lbs). He started wearing it when he was about 5 months. I may have punched another hole in the leather straps, but since it's an agitation harness it doesn't matter if it fits loose.

Ray Allen one looks intriguing for the same price as the Bridgeport .... is the quick release all that necessary or even necessary at all?

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

it's a pain to buckle it in each time. Quick snap is easier for putting on and taking off.

I prefer the buckle(just seems safer), and have the one Lies linked. Karlo has the large, and wore it at 4 months, still fits now. I have it loaned out right now, have been trying to get it back for a couple weeks!

Thanks for the replies.... my Yoschi is really developing a strong prey drive .... my trainer also said he has one of the best "show dog" barks in a pup his age that he has trained.... he said most show dogs won't bark when in prey mode.... so far so good
A harness is definitely the next needed item on our quest...
