I got to know about the Julius K9 dog harness from a friend. Honestly, at first, I was not motivated enough by my friend to even try;
Buddy is not a big fan of harnesses, But I only bought one so that he doesn't feel bad about it.
However, the very next day I took Buddy to a walk. Buddy is a 2 1/2 -year-old Bordercollie male. Buddy is very choosy and moody when it is about collars or harnesses.
He never settles for anything less than the best.
Now Buddy feels very comfortable with the harness made by Julius K9 during training, running and also jumping.
He is very expressive, and I could actually feel how lightweight and comfortable the fabric is.
The harness is quite durable. It is been 2 years since I got my first Julius k9 and it still looks like a new one. The value for money that Julius offers is, I believe, the best.
