The 'Crate' thread reminded me, so an FYI to Ruffwear fans:
Ruffwear has introduced two new harness styles, the Front Range harness for everyday use (much lighter than the Webmaster, a good choice when the walk doesn't involve climbing a mountain) and the Load Up, to be used as a car restraint attached to a seat belt (not for walking!) in situations where a travel crate is not possible. http://www.ruffwear.com/dog_harnesses
Because I sometimes have to transport dogs unexpectedly I keep a set of the Load Up harnesses in the car - these have been a godsend.
All the Muttley Crew wear Ruffwear harnesses of one type or another - in fact, Hooligan's original Webmaster is going on 9 years old now, still in pristine condition. Given that she's a rough-and-tumble kind o' gal, that's saying something. Love Ruffwear products.
The new styles might not be in stock in most Swiss stores - but Meiko (and possibly other retailers) can order one for you.
