    What a stunner!!! :doggieshmooze: :wub2:

    Just a "heads up": the Julius harness is great for most things (a real corker!) but ... and this is a health thing, they are pants if a dog has a need to "jump". I say this because, in all other regards, it is a fab harness. However, should your dog (or anyone's dog, for that matter) develop any issues re: jumping - as in, getting into a car - the Julius harness (AT THIS POINT IN TIME!) can prove to be a hindrance! :nonofinger:

    As some may know/remember, last year Ozzy developed certain issues, one of which was the leap from ground into car boot. Fair enough, he had developed certain physical restrictions. At one point during his re-hab, I bought Julius Harness and noticed it had set him back :th scifD36: :scratch:

    In a fully fit dog, it is a great thing and to be commended. :thumbsup:
    In a dog with mobility issues, the harness is not "leap-friendly" - e.g. it restricted the freedom of movement for Ozzy to be able to "jump" into the boot of the car. This is a design issue.

    In all other respects, it is a fab device :dbgrtmb:

    Just wanted to highlight that it does have "limitations" for those canines who may develop mobility issues. In which case, other harnesses are available :doggieshmooze::doggieshmooze:

      Thanks @M, will bear that it mind when she get older, she's only 17 months at the moment, she is not the best at getting in the car, Tigger as to go in first then she follows him.

      She does travel ok, the furthest we have been with her in the car was when we collected her from the adoption kennels near Sheffield.

      We did have a different type of harness for her but when I saw the Julius type on a facebook site, I just had to get it for her, according to there website they now do a different version.

      The main reason I got it was how easy they are to fit on your dog just one large clip, and all the straps are high visibility.

      The one Meg is wearing is a size 1 its for dogs 23 - 30 kg, it is a bit to big for her at the moment as she's currently about 20 kg a little under weight for her age.

        Munchkin (Chere Khan) has blessed us for nearly 8 years. She is called a Tigre (Tee-gra) here, Tabby to the rest of the world. In her litter there were three Tigres and two Siamese. Van (Hoover Van Dyson) has graced us for nearly four years, having arrived out of the orange orchards and never left. He is a Snowshoe (cross Siamese and Domestic) with the body of a Domestic and personality and traits of a Siamese. Munchkin spends all her time growling and attacking Van.

        Last night was an absolute 'first' ...

            His facial markings are the same as Dimitris. We were told he is a Turkish Van cross as he has longish hair. Your two look cozy in their basket.:)

                @luciusmaximus I named him Van because he came to us the week my sister died. For 30-odd years she had Siamese and holidayed in Turkey for 12 years (at one point was going to buy there) and loved the Van cats. Van has an appetite and a half so t'other half added the other two names! :cat-kittyandsmiley:

                  This is Tony our silver grey toy poodle in around 1965. Tough as old boots. Like many poodles he developed a hip problem, in that one of his legs would sometimes become dislocated if he was running around and turning frequently.
                  He'd carry on for half a minute until he noticed he was only running on three legs, then he'd come over to me to put it back in, then he'd carry on playing.
