Last summer we traveled through the U.P. Michigan and then later through New England. We had all sorts of problems with harnesses coming in lipped, harnesses breaking, doggies pulling out of them at very inopportune times. Not safe!!! Now we have found Eat Play Wag. Problems solved!! The hardware is sturdy and secure, no pulling out, comfortable and the designs are sooooo cute. I love these harnesses matching leashes and Pooh bags. They r great. So glad we found them.
