I do love a leather harness. Some dogs, especially burly ones look better in a proper traditional harness as opposed to a nylon one. Of course each to their own but if you are looking for a good stafford harness they sell great ones here:
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/tintuklimited2009?_rdc=1

This is Romeo in his harness:
Traditional leather harness Grey7
Believe it or not he's had that harness since he was eight months old and hes going on for two and a half years now. Smile I'm very pleased with how it's looking-he rolls around a lot too. I don't use any special leather products on it, just wash with soap and then put oil on to stop the leather cracking, although I've hardly put any oil on it ever and it looks fine.
He also has one in white that I got recently but i'm waiting till it's less muddy for him to wear that. He has a matching lead and that has worn well too.
I hope you find this review helpful. Smile

I'll bet Romeo really suits his white harness!

Violet has a traditional harness, but with no studs on it, and of course, it's pink!

I just don't get on with harnesses full stop.

I certainly wouldn't spend a fortune on a leather one! Dempsey rolls around in badger poo too much!

I didn't think it was expensive really. Oh dear, i've never come into contact with badger poo!

I would go as far as to say it's the safest harness you can buy. Impossible to duck out of when it's buckled up correctly. No way would it snap-its made like a horses saddle, proper leather and brass fittings. Romeo can pull like a trooper when overexcited and he weighs 24kg.
A well made leather harness should last for years and years. You can always get plain ones if you're not a fan of the jazzy bits. Tongues
I took a risk getting Romeo his black one at eight months. Most dogs are still growing at eight months. Romeo has the same measurements as when he was eight months, chest and neck wise, he's only put on weight on his shoulders and haunches. It's proberly best not to get their first harness till they're a year old and you're confident they've finished growing. These harnesses do have ample growing room though.

he does look good in his harness Smile

I still prefer nylon - it's washable, comfortable and easier to adjust and doesn't look menacing. Big Grin

I must look very menacing then, I often wear leather. If people are scared of my dog (and I don't see how when he's such a midge) it's their problem, not mine. Wink

Violet and I look menacingly FLY on our matching leather, studs and Hooters t shirts. Most punk rock duo of Glasgow South.

i use a similar harness, they are very good. great at stopping Marley when he see's a pheasant or fox(or what ever shoots out of the hedge). even the old ladies at the end of our road(70-80+) say how handsome he looks in his harness and save him a little crust of bread when they are feeding the birds, so i don't think it looks menacing, just sophisticated

I have one of those harnesses, however, I had to stop using it as it rubbed behind the front legs.

After much research I bought a Julius K-9 Original and it's just the thing.

Here is a picture of Angus wearing it.

That leather harness is really cool.
He looks like he had a starring role in the movie 300. Totally Spartan.

I've had a 15 stone Rottweiler cross English Mastiff that terrified everyone just walking up the street, even when he was wearing my sisters pink jumper. If people are going to be scared of a dog they're going to be scared no matter what it's wearing. I personally think leather looks stylish and i've never had any negative comments about it only positive ones about how smart he looks. He doesn't wear it everyday, he has a variety of harnesses and collars, some are spiked, some are studded, some are neither. Sometimes he doesn't wear a collar at all but a bandana instead.
I am a twenty four year old young(ish) well spoken woman from North London, not a chavvy thug from a benefit class town. If I wanted to scare and intimidate the general public I wouldn't be doing it by dressing up my dog in an expensive harness, I would be smashing up people's cars and hanging outside the local shops drinking supermarket own brand cider but as I am not mentally deficent or a teenage boy I have no intention of doing either.
After much research I bought a Julius K-9 Original and it's just the thing.
I like that harness a lot, it's very nice.

I think the leather harness looks cool but just for looks. I dont think they are practical. However, I do intend to buy Tyson one for his second birthday just for show now and then.

Tongues

Though I don't use it because I can't control him properly as the buckle is at the rear of the dog and it's a pain putting it on and taking it off all the time.

Might just sell it.

I said a while ago Troy had the same harness. Tongues I wouldn't use it if I was training Romeo to walk correctly as they disguise the problem of pulling rather then correcting it.
