It's a Head-in and a Step-in
Sizing is not consistent across products. Please double check all sizes according to your pet's measurements before adding to cart.
Harnesses in our Z Series are equipped with "bungee cord-like" elastic rubber straps. They absorb and mitigate the shocks resulting from sudden pulls and serve as a cushion for comfort between your hand and your dog. Constant pulling isn't something to be overlooked. It creates stress on you and your dog, especially on longer walks and outdoor activities. Consider our Z Series if you have an excited pup that constantly pulls.
There are different designs when it comes to making harnesses. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks and one isn't better than the other. It depends on which one suits you and your pup more. The
convertible in the Convertible Z Harness refers to its hybrid design between the "head-in" and "step-in" harnesses. It is one of our most unique harnesses and has many features. Here's to name a few:

The "convertible" aspect of this harness refers to a mixture in design between the "head-in" and "step-in" harness.
The following explanation is quite lengthy but gives a good explanation and context.
The major difference between a "head-in" vs. a "step-in" harness is the way you put them onto your pet.
A "Head-in" harness requires a correct measurement of your dog's neck since the harness is put on over your dog's head (this is the reason we call it "head-in").
A "Step-in" harness requires a correct measurement of your dog's chest since the harness is put on by your dog "stepping" into the harness (this is the reason we call it "step-in").
You might be wondering what's the difference?
In a nutshell, head-in harnesses are very hard for your dog to escape because the neck and chest part of the harness are connected.
The downside is that it's harder to put it on because once the head-in harness is over your dog's head, one of it's front legs needs to go through an opening on the side of the harness with no buckle.
To solve this, head-in harnesses with two buckles were made. However, some find it more bulky and cumbersome to put on.
This leads us to the Step-in harnesses. Step-in harnesses are all about "Easy-on, Easy-off" approach. Your dog steps through the two harness openings. You buckle it, and done.
The downside is step-in harnesses are easier to escape because the only point of contact to keep the harness staying on your dog is the buckle on its back.
Our convertible harness was created under the premise of combining the qualities of head-in and step-in harnesses. Convertible harness itself is a step-in harness, making it easy to put on and take off. It also has the velcro strap around the neck for adjustble neck size, providing a more secure fit preventing your dog escaping by backing out.

I purchased the convertible Z harness and it fits perfectly except for the portion of the harness that goes between my dogs front legs. It is too wide, so she refuses to walk because it is uncomfortable. I removed it from the packaging, so can it be returned or exchanged? My dog has a very narrow chest and most harnesses irritate her arm pits, so I was hoping this harness would be the right one
Our Shiba pup loves to bolt and this harness has enough padding to help us control her on walks. We alternate this harness with her prong collar, and this harness has the most comfortable material for her. Summers are hot on the east coast and she has not had an issue with this harness. I highly recommend!
