Why Comfort X?

Did you know that small dogs are more prone to neck injuries from regular collars due to their smaller physique and neck structure?

This is especially true if your little furry member is a strong puller.

You see, while a yank to the dog leash might do just a little to bigger dogs, it can lead to severe neck injuries like tracheal collapses, a chronic and progressive disease that involves to obstructed airway and crushed windpipe.

YES, it is that serious.

Why Comfort X Head-In?

Head-In harness, also known as over-the-head harness, has been the standard and classic design in the harness industry. It is very difficult for your pooch to get out of a head-in harness because its neck enclosure is connected to its chest enclosure. However, it does take more time to put it on your dog. If your dog is calm and isn't fearful of having a harness over their head, the Comfort X Head-In harness is a great choice.

Let's get geek out on the specifics. 📖

Patented Choke Free X-Frame Design

Rather than having the pressure being directly concentrated on your dog's neck and windpipe when they pull, the choke free X frame design distributes the pressure evenly around your dog's chest and shoulders.

Weighing at just 0.15 lbs, the mesh polyester fabric is lightweight, comfortable, and keeps your pup's body temperature cool. Not to mention it is wrinkle free to keep the perfect look.

Microsuede Trimming

The soft microsuede trimming around the edges of the harness provides protection for your pup against chafe, a skin irritation caused by repetitive rubbing.

Metal D-Ring

High quality metal d-ring for extra security to withstand the test of time.

Machine Washable

100 % polyester mesh material allows for easy cleaning and quick air dry, saving you time and hassle.

Our Furry Gals & Pals

Let's hear it from our very own Gooby moms & dads.

"After finding the Comfort X... we knew it was meant to be. We love it because it's so easy to put on."

Taren T. & Willow

"It is so easy for him to step into with that cross strap. There is no additional kind of tugging and pulling on his neck, especially with him being a brachiocephalic dog. We always want to make sure that he's OK breathing wise. And so this is my absolute favorite, and I'm sure it's his absolute favorite harness as he gets really excited when he gets to jump into it."

Christina H. & Sumo

“It's a very comfortable harness with the X neckline. Doesn't choke them. Doesn't confine them. There's no rubbing, which is perfect.”

  • The harness features a head-In design that allows you to put the harness over the head and then is secured around the dog's back.

Yes, it is.

Depending on the harness size, it can accommodate a dog with a chest measurement of 11.75" up to 28".

  • Compared to our Escape Free Collection harnesses, the Comfort X Head-IN Harness doesn't have the escape free functionality.
  • However, it does reasonably well at keeping your dog secured since it's a head-in harness.

We recommend the following:

Absolutely, the Gooby Comfort X Head-In Harness is suitable for most toys and small dogs.

At times, depending on the chest size, it could also fit medium dogs.

Important note:

  • choose the correct size for your dog.
  • always monitor your dog when using a new harness because some dogs may not be comfortable wearing a new harness for the first time.

Yes, we recently changed it for a sleeker look.

It's now coated in black - this protective black coating helps prevent potential metal ring oxidation from getting onto the dog's fur.

Important Note:

  • The new look D-ring is still made with metal, not plastic.
  • Under the black coating is its stainless steel body and just like other coated metals, a magnet may not be expected to stick to it.

Yes, for matching leashes, please check the following two options:

  1. Mesh Leash
  2. Mesh Wrist Band Surfer Leash


  • not all colors that are available for the Comfort X harness are necessarily available for the leashes.

Gooby harnesses do not have specific places to attach such tags at this time

Some customers have utilized the D-ring on the harness and have found good success.

The metal leash hooks can potentially rust if there is extended exposure to moisture. However, this is highly unlikely unless the d-ring is constantly immersed in liquid.

The short answer is "no it doesn't, but please choose the right size and adjust the fit properly for your pup."

The longer explanation is below for your reference.

  • It's designed ergonomically with soft and gentle material to minimize discomfort and rubbing in sensitive areas (i.e. dog's armpits).
  • The patented X frame distributes pressure evenly across the chest, reducing the likelihood of chafing or irritation.

  • Yes, it can replace your collar if you're use collars to walk your dog.
  • It does not replace your collar if you're using it for name tags.


  • If you're currently using a collar to walk your small dog, we would strongly suggest you to stop. Using it for name tags is fine 🙂.
  • The most significant advantage of utilizing a dog harness is the redistribution of pressure that would usually be focused on the neck when a collar is used.

Yes! the Comfort X Harness can be used for all day wear.

In fact, many of our customers have told us that it's the only harness their dog can stand wearing all day.

✅ The Comfort X Harness is designed to distribute pressure evenly across your dog's chest and shoulders, which can help prevent choking and neck injuries that can occur with traditional collars.
