  1. In response to the comment from Bob McGowan, Jr. Thanks for the wise advice about the chest harness. I don’t currently have a dog, but I hope to get another one soon. I have noticed more and more dogs with chest harnesses.

  2. They were all good this time. As a long time dog owner, I can see the fun in every one of them.

  3. Love them all, but especially numbers 2 and 5. Remember everyone to use the padded, comfortable chest harness for your dog and not old the choking neck kind; especially on walks. Their dog i.d., and license can be attached to the chest version. If you like the look of a collar as an accessory, just make sure it’s loose enough. The tags can usually be attached there too, or instead.
