The ComfortFlex is an easy on/easy off harness made of lightly padded nylon. It's available in several colors and lots of sizes, so there's something for everyone. I picked "Berry" (a dark pink) for the color and I wear an XXS (15.5"-18.5" girth).
Something really nice about the ComfortFlex that I've yet to see with similar style harnesses is that not only is the girth adjustable, the neck area is as well (please note this is only for the smaller sizes, since us little ones are more difficult to fit). As a whole, easy on/off styles aren't the most secure of harnesses since it's hard to get a good fit, but with the ComfortFlex's adjustability you get a nice snug fit. I can be a bit of a Houdini when it comes to collars and harnesses, but I don't think I could get out of this one!

Easy to put on
Made in the USA
Machine washable (don't put it in the dryer though)
The D ring is quite large for as small as the harness is
A little pricey
Now for the Julius K9 harness. Here's what Clean Run says about it:
Made in Hungary by a company specializing in high-end Schutzhund products, the IDC (Innova Dog Comfort) Harness is Julius K-9's most recent harness design. It is a high-quality, rugged harness with an innovative, sporty design that is suitable for all dogs, from working dogs to pet dogs whose owners need more control over them. The IDC Harness has an angular profile whereas the sides of the Power Harness are parallel to the ground. The smallest size of the IDC Harness will fit smaller dogs than the smallest size of the Power Harness.
The IDC Harness is so easy to take on and off the dog that it can be used for taking your dog into the agility ring; just drop the harness over the dog's head and click in the buckle on the belly band. The harness is designed to allow a full range of motion so your dog can walk or run while wearing it.
The surface of the Power Harness is made from rugged, scratch-proof, and water-resistant polyester, which makes it an ideal harness for dogs that run in their harness when you're hiking in thickly wooded/shrubbed areas. The underside of the harness is padded with Ökotex, a breathable cotton that is gentle on the dog's coat and skin.
The chest and belly straps are made from pressure-tested seatbelt-type webbing and are infinitely adjustable, allowing you to achieve a perfect fit on any dog.
It comes in lots of sizes, several colors, has removable patches, the larger sizes (Mini-Mini and up) have a handle on the back, and they're all reflective. It's an easy on/off style, albeit a little different than most. It has a buckle at the girth and the neck is adjustable with velcro.
The sizes are a little wonky. Technically, I'd fit in both the Baby 2 and the Mini Mini. The Baby 2's neck size was near perfect, but since the girth was almost too tight it pushed the neck up too high. The Mini Mini's girth is perfect, but the neck is a little loose.
Lots of sizes
Lots of colors
Sizing is weird
Not very comfortable
Not super adjustable, so easy to slip
Next up are two lovely collars from the Etsy shop Wagologie (also on Facebook here). Here's a little about them:
I've always loved animals but most especially dogs! Big ones, small ones, mixes and purebreds, and everything in between!
After getting my standard poodle, Darla, I realized how difficult it was to find fun collars for large breed dogs. I have always loved to create and craft throughout my life so it's no surprise that I found myself creating dog collars! It started with just a few collars here and there; a little shop on Etsy, and now I have made over four thousand orders! I just love creating new designs and often find myself dreaming up new patterns.
One of my favorite things about my dog collars is working with dog people. People that own dogs have to the friendliest group of people on earth! I love hearing all about their dogs and their unique personalities and life stories. It's truly amazing the love and compassion people have for their dogs and vice versa, of course!
I constantly donate dog collars to rescues and dog organizations all over the US!
A big 'Thank You!" to everyone who has allowed me to live my dream and create dog collars and all who support hand made!
Lauren, the awesome shop owner, sent both ME and Boston collars! Mine is a pretty 3/4" Glittery Aqua and Boston has a the beautiful Magenta and Black Damask in 1". Both are quick release collars. In addition to quick release collars, Lauren also offers martingales, leashes, bows and flower accessories.
Boston and I both really liked these collars. Even though mine is glittery, nothing flakes off, which is a huge plus! I've only worn my collar a few times, since I have so many I switch out every few and I'm usually in leather because of my sensitive skin, but Boston has worn hers 24/7 since the beginning of September and it still looks great.
|Pretty wrapping makes the product.|
|Versus Nola. One shot, and we're done.|
No metal buckles/metal buckle upgrade
And lastly we have a cool martingale leash from Jan's Martingale Collars and Walking Leads. Here's a bit on them:
I'm reviewing one of her Italian Greyhound/Small Dog sized martingale leashes. It's 1 1/2" wide, with a 6ft leash that is 3/4" wide. A heads up though: the sizing can be a little confusing, so if you're interested in getting one I suggest contacting Jan first so you can make sure you're getting the correct size.
I love a martingale leashes because it keeps the connivence of a slip lead but the safety and comfort of a martingale. Simply open it up, put it on your dog, adjust it to fit and you're ready to go!

Huge selection of colors and patterns
Easy to use
Sturdy and well made
Not a thing!
