    Any good harness suggestions for a strong 36kg lab?
    Preferably something with a good grip handle, back loop for a lead and something thats not easy to slip out of.

    We don't use his harness much on walks. Homer’s usual walks are off lead, only half a block on lead and he walks reasonably well well on lead with a collar. But there are times when we need a harness. Homer gets incredibly frightened and anxious of noises so sometimes we need a harness to be able to hold on to him as he can back out of a collar too easily and holding on to his collar puts stress in his throat.

    We had one that Homer did manage to slip out of on a few occasions and I was never fond of how it fits on Homer.

    Any suggestions?

    I use the Haqihana harness on my Labs. It fits beautifully, loads of adjustment and very secure, I've never had one escape from it. It doesn't however have a handle on the back, but I've never had a problem grabbing hold of the webbing when needed.
    I have used a JuliusK9 before which does have a handle, is also very well made, have to warn you though that my eldest Lab found it very easy to back out of.

    I have a Juliusk9.
    Very easy to slip on and it has a grip handle on the top.
    I specifically bought it as she wriggled out of less substantial harnesses!

    Perfect Fit or something similar. I also liked the Truelove harness but my dog doesn't like things being put on over his head.
    I believe Julius k9 type aren't good for your dog's gait and have no front clip so don't help with control.
