Flyball folks-
Where did you buy your harnesses from? I'm looking to get Layla one...

Thanks! :greenWave:

I ordered mine off eBay from a woman in Australia who custom makes them. With s/h it was like $20. I'll find her info - hang on...

Alright, email her: Flyball_etc@optusnet.com.au

Her name is Jenny. If she's still making them (which I'm assuming she does!), she'll email you a PDF with her "catalog." She does excellent work and has great customer service.

I just use Lupine harnesses for most of them...I don't have "pullers"...so this way they can look pretty and coordinated with the team, and I can use the harnesses for other things. I like Lupine because of the long chest strap...it doesn't ride in their armpits.

Sawyer has a Canine Outfitters harness...nylon with a loop handle, just because the webbing is thicker...my hand was smushing the softer Lupine webbing on his. It's fine...it does what I need it to do. ;)

I just saw this harness on another board...it looks really nice...and has custom embroidery on it...my friend has her dog's name on it. Cool. It also has a fleece lining. I haven't seen one in person...just in pics.

thanks. I grabbed her a regular harness at the pet store today, just so she stops choking herself when she gets excited at practice. I found these online, which I'm looking into when she gets more into it...I might get one...

Dice has an EZydog harness. It was less expensive than most custom flyball harnesses and I like the breast plate on the front as well as the fact that it's easy to wash and dry quickly. It doesn't shift around like the other normal harnesses and the fact that it came in our team colors was a huge draw. You can easily have a handle sewn on if you need one.

I like a couple of those custom harnesses that links were posted to and would like to own one of those instead but the one we have now works well and I can't argue with the price.

Eve has a thick leather collar with a built in handle but I don't know what I'll end up using during an actual competition. She's not anywhere ready to run in a tournament yet.

I use this harness on Jaeger (http://www.bridgeportequipment.com/ProductDetail.aspx?productId=105), because he pulls like a madman when he is out on the lanes.

A lot of the our teammates use this harness (http://canineoutfitters.com/deluxe_flyball_harness.htm).

I just ordered Jaeger one of the flyball harnesses from Alpine Outfitters (thanks for the link RedQueen), they look really sturdy. He will definitely test it out. I will have to post some pics when he gets it.
