Why We Love It:
The American River Top Stitch Dog Harness in Cobalt Blue is a great choice for any situation where your need your dog to stand out.  
The bright cobalt blue and neon green are a stunning color combination and are a perfect choice for any active or beachside event. 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!)

in Mesquite NV

Missy is a 7-year-old partially blind 90-pound shelter rescue dog who rescued me this past January (2019). She loves to go for walks, and we need to keep her on a leash, I need something easy to put on, easy for her to wear, & strong enough to take pulling on the D-ring connection to the leash. Here she is wearing her vest out walking in a field on one of the mesas around our town of Mesquite, NV.

American River Harness

Posted On 05/08/18 by Margo C from Phoenix, AZ    Yes, Margo C recommends this product!
Fabulous looking and fitting harness! I have purchased several by this company and highly recommend their products!

Comfort with Looks

Posted On 02/06/18 by Deborah Q from Biloxi, MS    Yes, Deborah Q recommends this product!
I loved the color and fabric of this harness. The velcro back is convenient. I ordered a large though according to the size chart and it was too big. My baby has a 19" chest and the large was 19"-21". So probably some my fault because the Medium was 16-19". This is a loose fitting harness. But I will buy another.

Super Harness

I was given this harness as a thank you from a friend. I am amazed. I have purchased many harnesses over the years for my Yorkie, Diesel. They all swore they were "choke free'. Yea right. This is the first harness that actually lives up to the name. Diesel loves to wear it and we have gotten several compliments too. I have told everyone I see about this great product. He will never wear another product. All previous harnesses are being donated today

Easier than any harness!

Posted On 08/19/17 by Kathleen W from WHITEHOUSE STATION, NJ    Yes, Kathleen W recommends this product!
I love knowing that If my dog pulls, he is not choking himself and that I can pull him out of trouble without hurting his throat. We have other harnesses, but they take so long to put on. Once I got the hang of how this should fit (crossing the Velcro a bit) I just had to get Duke to walk into it. I know it is safe and secure!

great harness

Best harness

Posted On 05/24/17 by Kari C from Webb City, MO    Yes, Kari C recommends this product!
I have one for 2 out of my 3 dogs. They don't make a large enough size for my lab, but if they did I would buy one. So many harnesses are loose in the top chest and the dog could back out of it. These fit perfect all around.

Sharp and Sporty

Posted On 05/23/17 by Dana L from Sparks, NV    Yes, Dana L recommends this product!
Love, love, love this harness on my Piper! As always, fit is excellent, quality is excellent, and if I'm not careful, Piper will need to get her own harness closet---I've purchase three ombre harnesses--and now this sporty little model--in the last three weeks. We won't even mention the dozen or so other harnesses purchased from BaxterBoo. What can I say...overall excellent!

Vibrant Harness

Posted On 05/15/17 by Mary J from Blacklick, OH    Yes, Mary J recommends this product!
This harness is a vibrant color and really stands out on my white Westie. The only slight issue I have is that it is almost too small for his girth/chest but gaps at the neck. I've had this issue before so maybe Sid just has an exceptionally wide chest or skinny neck. Anyway, it works as long as he doesn't gain any weight. And it is pretty.

Great product

Love these harnesses. I have a Border Collie mix & this works perfect for her...??

I love these step in harness.Lot's to choose from and great for yorkies.I have 5 now.and cannot say enough good things about them


Posted On 02/03/17 by Irene E from Roswell , NM   
We have ordered two of these to keep in our vehicles and we really loved the harness when we got it. We bought this back in November and sadly the clip broke so will be trying a different brand. It could have just been a faulty one because our other one is still ok so far.

Good quality

Posted On 12/21/16 by Shelly B from , MN    Yes, Shelly B recommends this product!
Nice heavy mesh with reflective material. Good quality!

Plastic Buckle is too Large

Posted On 11/17/16 by Michele D from Prairieville, LA    Yes, Michele D recommends this product!
Liked every aspect of this harness except for the plastic buckle. Although I don't think I will use this one since my dog is too small for it, will check with a friend who has a somewhat larger breed of chihuahua before I decide to return this item.

Dog Harness

Posted On 09/18/16 by Susan I. from Venice, FL    Yes, Susan I. recommends this product!
I tried dog harnesses from four places. These are the only ones that are truly easy on-easy off. They are perfect for my little dogs! Love them. Thank you!

Almost perfect

Posted On 09/09/16 by Elizabeth A from , TX    Yes, Elizabeth A recommends this product!
I purchased this harness in three sizes because I have three dogs. It fit my small Yorkie/Shi tzu mix perfectly. I love how easy it is to use on him; quick on and quick off for trips outside to potty and walks. I also like the vibrant colors. Unfortunately, it did not fit my larger dogs as well. Apparently they are between sizes, which is the downside to harness with only one adjustment. It's still a great product and I love shopping on

very easy to put on my Yorkie

Posted On 03/14/16 by Margaret B from ,    Yes, Margaret B recommends this product!
I love it and so does my ENKI. I place the American River Top Stitch Dog Harness on the floor ready for him to step in when I call him. So easy! Light and sporty, he looks adorably handsome! It is very easy to put on my Yorkie

I was looking for a step in harness that would fit my terrier mix that weighs about 35 lbs, I could not find what I wanted at a good price until I found the American River dog harness!! I am very happy with harness and so is the dog!!
