A Dog Harness Vest for an Active Lifestyle
The Convert Harness is designed with practicality in mind. Built to be street- and trail- ready, it boasts a simple, utilitarian design that combines comfort with style. Durable materials and innovative construction help to ensure safety and a secure fit. Sleek and understated, the Convert Harness is also stylish. The Convert Harness helps keep your dog safe and comfortable, so the both of you can focus on all the fun you’re having outside! Transform your Convert Harness into a service dog vest backpack or hit the trails while your pup totes his own water and food with the NEW Convert Saddle Bags dog backpack attachment.
Double as a Service Dog Harness
The sturdy and rugged Convert Harness vest has many functions. It provides security and pinch-free restraint for hikes. It can withstand substantial resistance, because it distributes the load across the chest and around the sides, rather than pulling across the throat the way a traditional collar does. You and your service dog can go anywhere. Your service dog vest should be able to do the same! A good match with the dog harness would be to pair it with an EzyDog dog leash for the ultimate in dog control.
Size & Fitting Instructions
|Size||Girth Inches||Girth cm|
1. LOOSEN THE CHEST VELCRO STRAP
2. PLACE THE HARNESS ON THE DOG
3. ADJUST THE CHEST STRAP SO THAT THE HARNESS IS POSITIONED COMFORTABLY BEHIND THE DOG'S FRONT LEGS
4. CLIP THE GIRTH STRAP TOGETHER AND ADJUST SO THAT IT FITS SNUG BUT NOT TOO TIGHT
TIP: KEEP THE CHEST STRAP A LITTLE LOOSE SO THAT THE GIRTH STRAP DOES NOT PULL INTO YOUR DOG'S LEGS
IMPORTANT: DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN STRAPS! WHEN FITTED CORRECTLY, HARNESS SHOULD BE SNUG, BUT TWO FINGERS SHOULD EASILY RUN BETWEEN STRAPS & DOG.

"Was looking for a harness for our Service Dog in training that was more compact to the standard Service Dog vest. I love the changeable labels. Fits her well now (55 lb Great Pyrenees/lab) at 6 months with hopefully enough room to grow as she does. "

Sturdy control for trained dogs. Displays duty information easily.
"Good value for money. Chest strap distributes force away from throat. Would not hold an out of control dog, but it is perfect for trained dogs needing to comply with leash laws. Velcro side labels make display of duty information an easy swap. Go from therapy to search & rescue, to search & seizure with a quick label swap."

"I have come over to EZYDOG Convert Harness from my Dean & Tyler DT-Fun Harness because I thought the saddlebags were the solution for some on-going travel issues, specifically carrying his crap + my crap is too much crap but I didn't want him stuck with a big backpack while in the tight spot on a plane (I will write more in about this in the saddlebag review). Comparatively speaking, the Convert Harness is about equal to the DT Harness in terms of quality (very well made), but there are some things done better, some worse, and some I haven't figured out yet.
The good/great: harness is well made, clips are durable and secure, the handle is *so* much better than the DT one. The harness is fairly easy to adjust for size and the color (blue) is lovely.
The less good/less great: I am not in love with the velcro on the chest strap. I noticed I had adjusted it too short for the dog and his girth strap was rubbing to close to his front legs. I prefer the DTFun chest girth which is adjusted similarly to the EZYDOG girth strap. That said, most service dog harnesses use the velcro chest closure (including DT works harness) so this is just a personal choice thing. Also, my white & blue service dog patch purchased with the harness is just a little too long to fit on it correctly. It works okay with the saddlebags but if I wanted to switch them over to his harness they are too long and snag all sorts of lovely uckiness into the extra velcro.
Stuff I haven't figured out yet:: there is a loop (maybe a pen loop? my SD rarely writes...;)) over the left side of the patch...at first I thought it was a mistake in construction, but no--it's meant to be there. There is also an odd plastic rectangle on the girth adjustment that I also am not quite sure why it is there. If I ever figure these out I will update the review. :)
I will say that the customer service at EZYDOG is fabulous and a full 5 stars. :)
Thank you for your insight Heather! The loop on top of the Convert is just another way to attach an accessory if you choose. A small flashlight works great in that space. The extra piece on the girth strap is an accessory for commercial (Police and Customs) use that is really not applicable for traditional use."

Amazing product! Amazing customer service!
"We LOVE this harness for our 3yr old Husky. I think he loves it too, he struts around whenever he has it on! It has two straps to adjust to fit him well and only one that needs to be undone to take it off (great for our hyperactive guy!) Seems very comfortable for him - he'd sleep in it if we let him!
The customer service end was fabulous too! We train service dogs and had reached out to the company to thank them for a great product. We will use them in the future for the service dogs - love the customizable, detachable labels on the side of the vests."

"I have a service dog and was looking for a not so flashy 'bright red' vest that would stand up to the usage. This vest is great. It is very well made and has great reflective strips. Fits my dog perfectly and has been a really great asset. I really like the removable velcro strips and the service dog tag option - informative, but doesn't 'scream' SERVICE DOG and draw so much attention to me.

style and quality
"Owned two harnesses for my dog and this is the best. Great adjustability for the perfect fit. Great quality materials that are durable and easy to keep clean. Dog looks very good with the harness. Very functional; gives me all the control I could ask for while walking a large breed dog of 86 lbs., the large size worked for me."

Great for my Little TriPawed dog!
"This harness works great for my dog who is missing one of his front legs following a car accident. It stays in place and keeps him from having to put up with pressure on his neck from the leash when he bobs up and down while walking. "
