Product Review: Red Dingo Harness

The Red Dingo Harness is a Roman-style harness with unique bone-shaped buckles. It is available in a vast array of colors and designs, including basic solid colors and reflective ribbon. Ours is a Circadelic pattern. Red Dingo harnesses are available in four sizes to fit dogs with chests 12-44" around, this one is a size Large and has to be adjusted fairly small to fit Brisbane.

I admit, the buckle bone is the primary reason I love Red Dingo's products. Unique products really catch my eye, I'm sure I would be less enthusiastic if every quick-release buckle were shaped like a dog bone.

Outside of that, this is a solid harness. It is easy to adjust and doesn't slip. It has buckles on either side of the chest strap so I don't have to pick up Brisbane's foot to put it on him. It can be adjusted in the chest, the neck, and bottom strap for a really good fit.

Pros: Endless selection of colors and patterns. Available with reflective trim for visibility. Front ring allows for use as a non-restrictive front-clip harness. As adjustable as the Premier Sure Fit harness, but a lot more fun.

Cons: The smallest size won't adjust quite far enough for little Ru. Most of the designs have a lot of white, which starts looking dirty very quickly. This is pretty heavy for a nylon harness, the webbing is very thick and bulky.

Bottom Line: What's not to love? This is everything I need in a harness, plus the green looks great on Brisbane.

  1. I've found it very hard to adjust to fit my dog properly. A medium one was too tight so exchanged it for a large and found it somewhat loose Tried to tighten it, but doesn't leave room to adjust. I'm sorry I ever bought it as it was expensive.
