Hey guys my Pitbull Layla is finally at a good age to start weight training and I was wondering if you guys know of who provides a Great dog harness that's not going to injure her. Name Brands or Local brands are welcome. Please responded on any information regarding Dog safety in weight training Thanks guys! and GOPITBULL.com! :woof:

I personally would never use a harness for competitions besides BDD Harnesses Missy v makes the best competition harness out there. The top 6 2010 UKC WP APBTs all use her harnesses.

If your not compete, This is another good site to check out http://www.itsmysite.com/cgi-bin/itsmy/go.exe?page=2&domain=1&webdir=cdpits I know many people who do compete with these harnesses and do great.

I've used both, I've taken good placements with both harnesses. I personal like Brown Dog Design because her harnesses lower the dogs neck which causes the dogs to pull better. But either of these links you'll be happy with what you get.

I agree Missy V makes awesome harnesses. I purchase mine from her.

These are the only harnesses we use too, tried some of the other ones but Missys are the best
The ones we use are from Troy & Lisa Brown in Athens. If you got any of Andys old harnesses, they were probably from them.

We have 1 of Troys harnesses a very nice harness that pulls good and straight, but so does Missys and you can get one in a week from her, I think Troys are sewn a little better but I like the fit of missys better and a little cheaper

You can give Troy measurments(because every dog is different)and it will fit however you want it to fit. Everyone we've bought from them(5-6 personally and even more for friends) have fit like a glove and then even better once broken in by that paticular dog. Troys harnesses are very similar to the old Jimmy Allen harnesses that I always loved.

We've used many different "brands" of harnesses over the years and I havent had a single problem out of Troys, ever. We've had the dogs chew them up before and Troy fixed them like new again.

We've purchased other brand harnesses before, and returned them after the first pull. (This was before Troy was in the harness business, and after Jimmy stopped) I even had one split in half with only 2,500 lbs. on the cart and my dog(Jazzy) took off during an APA pull. Ive personally seen a dog (Lugnut)pull over 13,000 lbs wearing a PBC harness and we had one pull over 10,000 lbs in one.

Excuse me if this is a dumb question (sometimes I'm full of those :p),but how do you do the measurements to find out what sizes you need?

Weve had Troy's harnesses pulling 100lb drag weight tires and everything & have no problem with them... It might take some time but they are definately worth it!

Troys back to his regular job full time now and Lisa is always traveling taking pictures for work. There may be a bit of a wait(because they do stay busy) but youre right, Its well worth it.

There's a guide online somewhere with pics and easy to follow instructions. There are basic "number" sizes but to me those are just a baseline because ever dog is different.

I'm just ordered mine from Tablerock :) I can't wait till it gets here. I like how they customize them to fit each individual dog :)
