Escape Free. Choke Free.

The better way to walk your dog.

Still using a collar or ill-fitting harness for your small dog’s walks?

Here’s a better way.

"The most important feature for us is the escape free mechanism, which lightly tightens around the abdomen when being pulled, which provides security and peace of mind."


- Kayla M. | Gooby Ambassador.

  • Collars and ill-fitting harnesses can sometimes let your furry child escape or accidentally choke.
  • At last, have peace of mind knowing they are safe, comfortable, and breathing freely on those walks.

As a pet parent, there’s nothing worse than losing your little furry one.

 

But did you also know you could be accidentally choking them?

 

Your small dog’s neck can’t take the pressure as well as a big dog.

 

They have a more delicate neck structure due to their smaller physique.

 

Over time, the constant pressure against their neck CAN cause their windpipe to shrink and collapse.

 

💭 This is WHY collars and ill-fitting harnesses are BAD for your small pup.

 

With those concerns in mind, we set out to create our Comfort X One Harness.

 

The first ever ESCAPE FREE and CHOKE FREE harness for SMALL DOGS.

 

Our absolute favorite 2 features about this harness are: 

 

1. IT IS ESCAPE FREE

Contracts and hugs them tightly when there’s sudden active pulling against the leash.

 

2. IT IS CHOKE FREE

✅ Deep V-Neck Frame puts ZERO pressure on the neck by redistributing pulling force to the chest and shoulders.

 

And we didn’t forget to integrate these additional useful features: 

 

➡️ Easy-Snap & Swivel Buckles

🗯️ Simple to use and easy on your fingers. Hook, snap, and done. All with just one hand.

 

➡️ Shock Absorbing

🗯️ Absorbs the shock created from sudden pulling so it's easier on your hands and your dog.

 

➡️ Maximum Comfort

🗯️ Breathable mesh to keep them cool & flexible body frame for the perfect fit.

 

We're confident that this is the harness that your small dog will ACTUALLY GET EXCITED to jump into.

Our Furry Gals & Pals

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

“Because of the x-frame design, even if Bella is running or pulling on the leash, it will never press on her trachea. And it won't cause her to choke or anything like that.”

Alyssa P. & Bella

"This is a really great harness. I would highly recommend it. It has all the features we're looking for. Good for an active lifestyle or a non-active lifestyle."

Cassidy L. & Koa

"We love all the Comfort X series because of the x frame design. It protects them from neck injuries and tracheal collapse, which is so important for small dogs and brachycephalic breeds."

Hana S. & Pepper

"The rotational buckle is absolutely a key part of this harness. It's probably one of my favorite details. It's so easy. My grandma's actually having to film holding it, and she's having such an easy time doing it."

Jen F. & Louie

"The most important feature for us is the escape free mechanism, which lightly tightens around the abdomen when being pulled, which provides security and peace of mind."

Kayla M. & Jarvis

“It's a very, very good quality material, very lightweight, and just super comfortable for her. And it has made such a difference in our family walks.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Product

Simply put, it is 

  • Escape Free - made for escape artists that like to back out or wiggle out of their harnesses.
  • Choke Free - made for small dogs that are prone to neck injuries by redirecting pulling forces away from their necks. 

In the past, Gooby harnesses either had the Escape Free or the Choke Free feature, but never both.

Escape Free Comfort X One is the first Gooby harness that has both.

The harness has a built-in strap mechanism that tightens and contracts around the dog’s chest when there’s sudden active pulling (i.e. dog tries to back out suddenly).

When the dog’s relaxed and there’s no active pulling, the mechanism loosens so the dog stays comfortable.

Having the right fit is crucial for this mechanism to work. 

You want the harness to be just tight and snug enough so your pup stays comfortable when there’s no active pulling.

If the fit is too loose, the mechanism won’t work.

This is because the harness is too big and there’s enough space for them to escape the harness, even when the mechanism has contracted all the way.

This is why if the fit isn't right for the pup, no harness will truly be escape proof.

The patented X-Frame Design ensures that the pulling forces are redirected to the dog’s chest, shoulders, and away from their necks. 

As a result, the dog experiences zero pressure on their necks and avoids potential neck injuries that are common in small or brachycephalic dogs.

In the past, Gooby harnesses either had the Escape Free or the Choke Free feature, but never both. Escape Free Comfort X One is the first Gooby harness that has both.

This harness is truly unique because we’ve taken harness features that our community has loved throughout the years and combined them into one single harness.

It's a head-in harness.

Follow these steps:

  1. Take the harness and slip it over your dog’s head. The side with the X-frame is the bottom and the side with “gooby” is the top.
  2. Hook and snap on the two buckles, making sure they are securely fastened.
  3. Adjust the harness to ensure a comfortable and secure fit. Note:You should be able to fit one finger between the harness and your dog's skin, but it should not be loose enough for your dog to slip out of.
  4. Attach your leash to the D-ring on the back of the harness and you're ready to go!

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

Note:

  • If you're currently using a collar to walk your small dog, we would strongly suggest you stop. Using it for name tags is fine 🙂.
  • Collars put lots of pressure directly on your dog’s neck which can cause c

It can be used inside the car, but it is not expected to function as a dog car harness.

Currently, there is no Gooby harness that is designed or rated for vehicle restraint systems.

Therefore, we do not advise connecting any of our harnesses to any restraint systems.

✅ 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.

❌ In contrast, traditional collars can put pressure on your dog's throat and neck, which can be uncomfortable or even dangerous, especially for dogs that pull on the leash.

Absolutely, it is suitable for most toys, small, and medium sized 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! it 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.

No it doesn't, but please choose the right size and adjust the fit properly for your pup.

Additionally,

  • 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.

The harness is designed with a lightweight, breathable mesh material that is gentle on your dog's skin and coat, and won't mat or tangle long hair.

The dual snap feature also allows for easy on and off, which can be helpful when dealing with long-haired dogs that require grooming or trimming.

However, it's always a good idea to do the following

  • regularly check your dog's fur for any matting or tangling that may occur over time
  • adjust the harness as needed to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.

Yes, it is machine washable.

We recommend the following:

  • using a gentle cycle with mild detergent and cold water
  • rinse the harness thoroughly before air drying it.

  • Yes, it is easy to put on and take off, especially compared to other harnesses that require a lot of fiddling and adjusting.
  • The harness features a head-In design that allows you to put the harness over the head and secured around the dog's back.

A combination of soft and durable materials, ensuring both comfort and reliability for your dog during walks and other activities.

  • The main body of the harness is constructed with 100 % polyester breathable mesh fabric.
  • Straps and buckles are made of sturdy nylon.
  • The leash ring is made out of metal.

Yes, it is.

Depending on the harness size, it can accommodate a dog with a chest measurement of 10.50" up to 33".

Ideally, the harness should fit in a way so that there is about 1 finger's width of space between the back of the dog and the harness.

It comes in a range of sizes from dogs with chest measurement of 10.5" up to 33". The product is split into 7 sizes, from 2XS to 2XL.

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.

We've had feedback from our community that the tightening of the harness when it’s pulled can serve as a training signal to the dog.

This tightening signal makes it potentially useful during training.

However, we did not design this for training purposes. It was designed for dogs that have a tendency to pull by backing up.

We're constantly amazed from the feedback of our community.

Yes, please see the video at the top at the 1:36 mark.

Snapping the buckles together is pretty easy

  1. locate the male and female parts of the buckle. The male part is typically the one with the prong, while the female part has a hole to insert the prong.
  2. Insert the prong of the male part into the hole of the female part. The prong should slide easily into the hole and lock in place.

Yes, it's suitable for normal outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, and running.
