Why We Love It:
The American River Top Stitch Dog Harness in Aruba Blue is a great choice for any situation where your need your dog to stand out. 
This top-stitch style is sporty, attractive and comfortable enough to wear all day! Yet this fashionable harness isn't just for looks.
The American River Choke-Free dog harnesses by Doggie Design are simply head and shoulders above the rest for quality and safety. Why?
Trachea safe - The Choke-Free patented design pulls only from the chest, never the neck. Many smaller breeds are susceptible to having a collapsed trachea, especially when using a collar. Even regular harnesses can be dangerous for toy and teacup breeds. Don't put your pup's airway at risk with anything but a choke-free harness!
Patented Conforming Shape Fit Seam Technology - This unique feature allows the harness to conform to curves even on hard-to-fit dog chests.
Patented Closure Slide Adjustability - Most harnesses have little or no size adjustment at the clasp. This unique design allows the clasp to slide along the nylon webbing for a full 3 inches of adjustment.
Double D-ring - Most harnesses have only a single D-ring. Furthermore, some companies use D-rings that aren't welded shut. The remaining slit in the metal of sub-par D-rings may open under pressure and the nylon could slip out, leaving your dog at risk for escape. Since the American River Choke Free Harness features two welded D-rings in its design, you're getting double the protection.
Reflective strips - All of the colors of American River Choke-Free Dog Harnesses feature reflective strips that can be viewed from the front and the sides to provide visibility during nighttime or early-morning walks.
Zig zag trim binding stitch - Using a zig-zag stitch over the harness trim ensures there will be no missed stitches. This means the trim and the mesh fabric are fully bonded to each other.
Safety – The choke-free design makes this harness an ideal choice for use as a car seat belt harness since it pulls from the chest, not the neck. Certified break strength tested to 500 Lbs, by an international independent testing laboratory!
Double safety closure- Wide touch fastener and high-strength plastic buckle clip ensure your dog won't be able to get out of the harness. When paired with a leash through the double D-rings, the harness has three levels of closure strength!
Easy to apply - The step-in design makes putting on this harness a breeze. Once your pup has stepped into the harness leg holes, wrap the harness up and around your pup, angle the touch fastener for the best fit, click the clip, and go! 
Easy-care fabric- Soft mesh polyester is machine washable. Line dry.
Sized to fit most dogs - This harness is available in sizes from XXS through XXXL (to fit dogs from 3-90 pounds!)

Aruba Blue Harness

Wish this wasn't going to be discontinued — the color is great and the fit is ideal. Originally purchased this for my Bichipoos and now got it on clearance for their Standard Poodle Cousin. It really looks sharp with the contrasting trim!

Comfy and stylish!

This harness is a well made and very comfy, no-choke design. The light, turquoise-y color is lovely too!

Relieved. Safety First ?

I bought this style for 4 dogs that I dog sit. The med. didn't fit so I returned them for 2 larges & that did the trick for 2 dogs. So now I'm adding 2 new dogs and trying to fix the other 2. Owners told me one dog refused to walk in new harness, but she wears sweaters. Lol. FINALLY, I found the Am. River Wrap & Snap & newer (?) version of Am River Choke-free. Now, I'm going nuts trying to figure out sizes because the sizes are not the same across this same brand (Doggie Designs). Sticking with this type for escape free & safety. And they will work with seat belt tether for $5!

No More Choking

I've used this brand of choke-free harnesses with dogs I pet sit and what an improvement. It's amazing how strong dogs can be at 15+ lbs! My biggest fear is dogs slipping out of their collars. I was terrified when my Shiba Inu got out of a prong collar during a scuffle with a much larger neighbor dog. So, I don't want to lose anyone else's dogs for sure, plus I worry about their neck & throat health from pulling. Plus, it helped getting the right size. REMEMBER that tight is TOO tight. So it ends up I need larges for papillon, Chinese crested, cottons. Doggie Design is great quality - try their coats too. Now I am looking for seatbelt wraps for stay in the car & safety. Plus walking connectors for one leash and 2 dogs. I'm not as nimble as I used to be! Safety First!?? Kudos to the awesome BaxterBoo humans, too. They rock ????

I have purchased many of these harnesses from baxterboo. They are great harnesses that won't choke tiny pups that are too small for collars. This color, Aruba blue, is the color of the ocean, perfect for spring and summer!

"Houdini" hasn't managed to escape from this choke-free harness YET! It fits comfortably with sweaters and without and is a pretty color for dogs with white fur and beige fur.

High Quality

This was a very nicely made and high quality harness. My pup lives it and wears this brand all the time.

New Color! Same Great Product!

Posted On 03/01/15 by Sandra P from Pottstown, PA    Yes, Sandra P recommends this product!
Even though I have several harnesses by American River, I had to buy this one because of the calming color, rightfully named Aruba Blue. Also, the color looks great on my male Chihuahua GOOSE. In addition to the new colors, these American River harnesses are still crafted with superb quality of workmanship and recognized as being one of the safest harnesses for small dogs with choking issues.
