I love the first picture. And i LOVE the harness, but Medjai hates all harnesses, on him or not.

Great pictures. I was going to buy Charlie one of those harnesses. I decided I would wait till Zaire got a little bigger and just buy both at once.

Nice pictures.

Are those harnesses also for sale in Europe?? What kind of brand is it?

What a handsome boy! πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

Go to the website above select your country and it will list all the ruff wear dealers in your area. Even if you're not close to one of them I'm sure you could call them and have one shipped your way. Just be sure to measure twice and buy once.:)

Yea the first one is my fav. as well. That's why it's at the top=}

Decker hated the first harness/backpack I ever put on him….
the comfort level of the backpack was poor. I mean the first day I took him on a walk with it he bucked like a wild stallion. Needless to say that walk didn't last long..... spending $30-$40 on it I wasn't about to toss it in the trash. So what I did was gradually got him accustom to it by

1st having it next to a treat during treat time so he would begin to come towards the backpack when he saw it instead of avoiding it.

2nd A couple days later after he seemed content with it. I held him and put the back pack on while petting him, giving him a treat to make it a positive experience. Now that it was on he just kinda stood there. So treats in hand I went on the other side of the room called him.... knowing a treat was waiting for him he came farily quickly considering.
..... I repeated this for a week or so around the house before taking him outside in it.

After 2 weeks of using it you know what he does when he sees me pulling out the backpack...... He jumps off the couch, runs straight to me and sits because he knows we are about to go for a run.

I just wish I knew about Ruff Wear backpacks before I purchased the one I have. Oh well at least I have their fantastic Harness.

That's great man….
Just so you know.... if you care to have the brand new redesigned 2008 model be sure it's just that....the dealer might have the old models.

I heard the old model was good too so it's really a matter of if you wanna save some money.
A good safety feature of the new one however is a big plus..... Reflective trimming. Compare below.

Your Welcome?? Don't really feel comfortable saying it when all I did was send you on a wild goose chase. :() So sorry you weren't able to find one locally. They were pleasant to deal with on the phone so if it doesn't fit I'm sure you won't have problems exchanging it.

Looks like your connection to Basenji Forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
