Not escape proof and buckle won’t open
Bought 2 for our Min Pins. It took our escape artist about 2 weeks to figure out is she stood up on her back legs and twirled she was off and running in no time. On the older guy, the buckle has been inoperable 3 times. It’s incredibly frustrating to know immediately when you don’t hear the click when you put the harness on, that you’ll be fighting to get it off. Very disappointing on both counts due to price and high recommendation!
My experience this harness is mixed. I purchased two when I got my puppy a shipoo and gave one to my son for his Parsons terrier puppy and we were both very happy I then purchased a new one for my son when his dog grew out of the first he still has it and has had no problems with it. I was not so lucky with Belle and after a couple of months she discovered that if she turned quickly whilst pulling on the lead she could escape so unfortunately I had to discard it and put a collar on her.
This harness is meant for dogs that don't pull and to be used only for a short period of time. Dogs has no bones where the front part is. They use their muscles to pull in it which might cause serious health problems in the future.
After 2 months now the buckle won’t open and currently trying to remove from puppy Rubbish
Power Harness - Fantastic Buy
Saw this item on Fake Britain which got bad reviews when purchased through some non official outlets. However, I was impressed by the test results showing an original being tested and the results were outstanding. I have a German Shepherd puppy (4 months) and am wheelchair bound so, I need something that is strong yet gentle when in use. Saw it being sold through Zooplus and bought one - size 1. Fitting - easy and he is now working with it and starts training soon which will be a great help.
I bought this harness for my border terrier less than 3 months ago, it has worked perfectly and I was pleased with it. Yesterday the click catch would not release at all. I had to unvelcro all the straps so I could drag the harness off him. I have tried since to release it but it just won't budge. In less than 3 months this product is unusable. What a rip off!
It’s awful my dog German shepherd of 5 months managed to slip out of her harness even though it was fairly tight xx
Unsafe even for small dogs
I bought this for my miniature labradoodle because of the reviews and think I must be missing something. The restraining strap around my dog’s chest is held in place by Velcro!!! After daily use for a few months, the Velcro now just separates every time my dog pulls and the harness is effectively useless. Surely Velcro was never designed to restrain dogs that pull? This harness is just unsafe even for my small dog. Why would anybody use it for larger and stronger breeds?
Initially i thought was very good ( esp as it seems to be the go to product for huskies) however after a year of use today was the second time the buckle came undone on one of my dogs I am now looking for alternative for both my huskies :0(
Bought 2 of these harnesses for my 2 Mini Schnauzer's and fitted them according to the JK9 website fitting video, (just enough space to slide a hand under the harness). Looked amazing but constantly slipped over to one side on both dogs, when on line. By third time of wearing, one dog had mastered the art of total ESCAPE....leaving us with zero confidence in the security of these harnesses. The handles on the back are also of limited use. Have now sold them & bought Ruffwear...brilliant!
Fantastic fit harness...
This is a great harness and does NOT move . I can only think reviewers who comment the harness comes off have bought too big a size. I also purchased the lead and I feel totally in control of my dog when walking a 2 mile route by busy roads. I have 100% confidence in the product.and would recommend to all dog owners.
Not escape proof
This is a good harness for dogs that pull but it's not escape proof when the dog backs up - my dog lifted front legs bobbed her head down and was out!
As a hillwalker who needs a harness to be worn all day, in all weathers by my greyhound, it is fantastic. I add seatbelt protectors to the breast and chest belts for all day walks to prevent rubbing as he has very thin skin. It doesn't slip, fits him comfortably and is very sturdy. I have tried many different harnesses for him and none have come close to being as good as the K9. I am getting another one for my very deep chested and narrow lurcher next, because I know I will finally get a harness that fits him too.
Julius K9 Harness
This is our second harness for our Staffie Rudi. Size 0 is the second one. Should be his last one as I think he's done most of his growing. Both harness's are top quality. Well made and sturdy. Love the grip on top for holding. Fit the harness correctly and there's no way he's slipping out of it. The reflective strip across the front and the removable ones at the sides are really good at winter time in the dark. By the way you can get different strips for the side if you look around. Suprised they don't sell them here. Anway I would recommend this harness to anyone looking for one they won't be disappointed.
Best i've found
Bought the Julius k9 power harness for my big lab/retriever before,and back to buy another.(I covered the previous one with cement whilst gardening, no problem with harness) the only problem I did have with it was slight rubbing under the leg (arm-pit) due to my dog being a heavy puller. Little bit of Vaseline now and again will sort it. If you get the correct size, your dog will not escape from it. Its solid and apart from the armpit issue, it seems comfortable. It also looks a lot better than the pics on the site make it look. Best harness I've ever found, if it wasn't, I wouldn't buy a second one. I highly recommend if you have a big dog that likes to pull.
No good at all
at first place i was really happy with the harnes, but i use it now for 3 months and every time i walk my dog i am worried if the harness will stay on or my dog will slip off again. Looking for new harness that will stay on
julius k9 dog harness
i recently bought this harness for my staffie and its the best harness ive had for her and ive had a few different types, excellent fit and very sturdy gives me so much more control over her when out walking,also helps with the pulling etc,plus the reflective strips are great for seeing her at night and for the traffic seeing her too,i highly recommend this to all dog owners who are planning on buying a harness for their dog,plus zooplus prices are great for such a top quality item 5 stars all round from me and my dog ruby
Excellent harness...Love the handle..Excellent Quality & very robust. ...10/10... My only dilemma is which colour Im going to buy next ☺
I find as an anti pulling harnesses it just makes my dalmatian worse but the handle on top is great to control him with
I have a Husky, a Border Collie and a small Jack Russell/Dachshund and all 3 of them have these harnesses, obviously in different sizes, they are the best we have ever used and we have had dogs all our life. Friends have bought these harnesses after seeing ours.
