Best Dog Harness For Shelties | Joyride Harness Customer Reviews

Shelties are affectionate, loyal, and playful dogs originating from the Shetland Islands of Scotland. Originally Shelties, or Shetland Sheepdogs, were named Shetland Collies, but it caused controversy with Rough Collie breeders at the time so the name was then changed formally. 

This dog breed is known to be a loving, family-companion type of dog breed, and we see it through the reviews we see at! 

If you have a Sheltie and are looking for a dog harness, read over some of these customer submitted reviews. If you want to find more reviews from Sheltie dog parents, our Reviews page has a search bar you can use to search by breed.

Bill and Rosa A. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“Our Sheltie "Wendie" is very high energy and we are team truckers by trade so we need to keep her on the lease. We didn't like her head and neck getting pulled on hard when she ran out of lease, the Joyride harness has fixed that issue. Plus she doesn't pull against us as bad now. Thanks for a great product.”

Karen S. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“This is the first time wearing it, just after opening the package and making two small adjustments to chest and belly strap. We love how easy it is to put on over her head.  Much easier than the other types of harnesses we have used. Zoe is a two year old "Sheltie", and weighs 22 lbs. The medium size fits well over her abundant fur, and doesn't pull at any of it as we put it on or off. Whew! We don't have to chase her anymore, and the additional left and right attachment rings help us make obedience corrections as needed.”

Nancy R. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“I have not had a harness that worked until this one.My Sheltie even sits for me to put it on.She can get out of it but Not as fast as the others.It is a keeper.”

Kathey P. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“Willie Nelson is a 37 pound Sheltie and we purchased a medium harness. It’s a perfect fit. He loves it. It is so easy to put on and take off.  We’ve had other harness’ in the past and they are a pain to put on. Our dogs have had to step into them and get get straps connected to be secure. With this harness we just place around the neck and click closed. We will never buy another type of harness. Also purchased the leash with the extra handle near the dogs back.  Very safe, efficient and we are extremely happy with this.”

Alex P. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“My 2nd Joyride Harness…after my Sheltie puppy grew out of the 1st! Feels secure and well-made for sure. Love the leash too…it has a night-headlight reflective strip for safety and a seat belt clip for car rides to the park!”
