Best Dog Harness For Dogs With Different Body Shapes & Sizes | Joyride Harness Reviews

When shopping for a dog harness for your fur baby, it’s standard to consider what size they need in order for the product to work effectively. This proves challenging for dogs with unique body types and shapes such as Boston Terriers and Bulldogs, but fear not! 

Joyride Harness is at your service. Not only does Joyride Harness offer sizes ranging from XS to XXL, but these harnesses have straps - secured by a buckle - that wrap around the chest behind the front legs and can be adjusted to fit closely against your dog’s shape.  As always, the proof is in the pudding, so we’ve rounded up testimonials - or reviews - submitted by customers who previously had trouble finding the right dog harness for their uniquely shaped fur baby. 

Megan M. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“I absolutely love my dogs new joyride harness! I purchased the green plaid one and not only is it super cute it’s extremely efficient and easy to use! I have a Basset Hound and considering how oddly shaped they tend to be it has been SO difficult to find a harness that truly fit my basset 100%! We ordered a size large (he is about 50-55 lbs) which fit perfectly with room to grow since it’s adjustable! He hasn’t been able to wiggle out of this one which I love! He’s a real Houdini too so I was pleasantly surprised to find he hasn’t been able to get himself out of this harness! He looks small but man is he strong!!! This harness has given me a lot more control and security on our walks! It also seems to be very comfortable for him as he just can’t wait to put it on every time he sees me get it! I would definitely recommend this harness to all dog owners! Especially the ones having trouble finding a harness to fit their pup comfortably and securely! No complaints from us! This harness is worth every penny and has definitely changed our daily walks in the most positive ways!”

“We have had such a hard time finding a good harness for her. Pugs are shaped like a barrel so her collar always falls off. The harnesses we would get for her she was always able to get out of because they would slide right over her head, until now!! The Joyride Harness goes on easily and doesn’t slide off. I don’t have to worry about walking all 3 dogs together because I know she can’t get out! It’s GREAT!!!”

“Once the harness was fitted for my armadillo shaped pit-mix it was so easy to get it on and off of her. It seems very comfortable for long walks as there is no gapping.”

Loreen S. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“My dog has a very odd shaped body as his chest is big and this fit him well. I have a very difficult time finding a harness that fits him well as he is an escape artist so I have to have a well fitted one. Great experience as it fit my dog well and he has an odd shaped figure!”

Brandi H. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“H and Blu love their new Harnesses!  H is 71 lbs and has a large chest. He’s in an XL and the fit is perfect!  I have wanted soft harnesses for a while but the ones in the store are dainty and never seemed like they would hold up to my boys.  This one does. Very well made. Also super easy to get on them. Their regular harnesses were a chore and of course they are excited so it takes forever to get them on. Joyride’s harness slips over their head, one clip, and done!  I am so so so very happy with these!  Blu is 45 lbs, also with the wide bulldog chest, and he is in a large. These harnesses were very easy to adjust to their odd bully shapes as well!”
