    Dog's Name: Thunder

    Date of Review: 3/8/2014

    We kick up our paws in: New Hampshire

    My canine companion(s): Bernese Golden Retreiver Cross

    Great Fun for both of us.

    Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

    I put off getting a nice harness like this because of the cost and I thought I would make one, but I never got around to it, I wish I had bought this harness three years ago. It came last week and we have been out three times already. My dog saw me with the harness in my hands, after we had been out twice today, for a total of three and a half hours and started kissing the harness and making his "I wanna go . . . ." noise. The harness has a lot of small features that are very nice, that I might not have thought of on my own: adjustment buckles on each part of his harness, leg loops to keep my harness belt from riding up, an extra loop for a handhold on the lead line near the attachment clip, side stabilizing straps on his harness, plenty of padding for him. I am very glad that I bought one with a lot of features, I don't have to struggle through the discovery period. One slight difficulty is sizing, he is a little small for the large, I have it adjusted almost all the way down and it barely fits. My harness is a little small, it fits me, but not with a lot to spare. I am a 42 inch waist and most of the adjustment in the closure strap is used up. I wish they offered a larger size harness for the human.

    Dog's Name: Boomer

    Date of Review: 2/14/2014

    We kick up our paws in: Nashville, TN

    My canine companion(s): English Setter

    Great quality harness

    Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

    Boomer and I are enjoying this harness very much. Construction and quality is durable and functional. Boomer is a working dog, so I sewed on some velcro to display his credential patches. This harness is better than the USAR harness that was issued to us. The 8 ft chord has a stretchy section, so shock is limited from dog to human and vice versa. Boomer likes pulling a sled for exercise while I jog. I am looking forward to him pulling me on my mountain board. We will also use it as our main harness for working.

    Excellent!

    Use this with Rocco to Bikejor. Awesome product, the waist belt allows great control, minimizes effects of Rocco "going off track". He loves to pull, great way for us to ride together!

    We kick up our paws in: Maine

    My canine companion(s): American Bulldog mix

    love it!

    Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

    This is my favorite piece of dog gear, hands down. We've used the omnijore system an average of 5 times a week for running, day hikes, or skiing during the past year and a half and it's still in good shape. The harness fits my dog perfectly- no sliding around or spots where she gets rubbed. The pockets on the hip belt are handy to have for keys, poop bags, small snacks, etc. At first I was reluctant to spend this kind of money but I've found that it's been well worth it. I've used another system in the past that was cheaper but Ruffwear's is so much better- easier to use, more durable, and has better features.

    Loving it so far

    Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

    I've only used the system a handful of times so far, but I love it! Easy to fit, and seems well constructed and sturdy. Has made our runs so much more enjoyable for both of us, I think it was definitely worth the price.

    Dog's Name: Niche

    Date of Review: 1/21/2013

    We kick up our paws in: Northwestern Arizona

    My canine companion(s): Border Collie X

    fantastic

    Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

    Niche and I run at least 12 miles a week with this system. We have been using the omnijore system for six months. Sometimes her and I just run but we often pick up the neighbor's dog, Niche's 35-lb BFF, to run on another gangline. My overall impression is as follows, starting from the human end: 1) The hip belt. LOVE this. This is the most adjustable, comfortable, pocket-filled hip belt for joring I've ever found. The under-the leg straps are vital as the belt tends to rise on me unless I utilize these straps. I am also asthmatic so the ability to carry my emergency inhaler (not in a pants pocket because it creates friction) has really made our runs enjoyable. Both pockets fit my iphone4 with an otterbox with a little shoving, but they do the trick. The water bottle holder is also great, but you need to use a small bottle (not a nalgene; I use one that holds 16 oz). However, the addition of a bottle can make the back of the belt feel "floppy", but I was used to it after a few runs and Niche appreciated the water after the trail run. Furthermore, the quick release system is fantastic. I've never had to use it (thank goodness), but, properly fastened, holds my 75-lb partner and her 35-lb partner in crime. Other systems I've reviewed may or may not have a quick-release system, and if they are included, are typically out in front of the runner and may be difficult to reach depending on the flexibility of the attachment to the belt. 2) The gangline. This is my least favorite part of this system. It is entirely too flexible and is not rigid enough to provide adequate tension for a solid pull. However, I do appreciate the handle at the human-attachment end because I use it when I run Niche and my neighbor's dog side-by-side. Due to the construction of the gangline, you need to feed the plastic attachment rings through the quick-release strap to attach the RW gangline to the hip belt. Well, when you run two dogs, each on their own gangline and they are not attached by a neckline (I can't with Niche and her 35-lb BFF), it is impossible to attach two ganglines without them getting tangled unless you have dogs that always run on the same side of one another (and, well, I don't). To solve that problem, I rigged up a simple system that attaches both ganglines to a swivel which easily connects to the quick-release strap and still allows it to function properly. So, we run with one RuffWear gangline and another 8-foot line purchased elsewhere. The handle on the ruffwear gangline has enabled us to rig up this system that works for us. Running both lines side-by-side, though, I would prefer the stiffer gangline hands down. 3) The harness. I like this harness and it seems as though Niche does, too (although she hates putting it on but her eyes light up when you say "run", go figure). It's easy to put on once you get the hang of it, and it is extremely, extremely adjustable. I have a very broad border collie x (75 lbs) that actully wears a medium and it fits her extremely well. The removable belly strap was also extremely helpful in the beginning. She is trained to never pull on a leash so sometimes she would run beside me and essentially "back out" of her harness. The belly strap prevented the harness from going directly over her head if she got behind me. Now that she's used to getting ahead and leaning into the harness, we have removed this belly strap and she seems to enjoy the harness even more. If this is your first time trying this harness on, it seems "humped" in the middle, but that is to allow the dog to arch their back while running so it increases freedom of movement. There is still a lot of fabric on this harness compared to x-backed harnesses sold elsewhere, but it does provide a lot of options for adjustment (which some x-back harnesses do not). All in all, we love this product and use it at least four times a week (granted, with some modifications). It has lasted these six months of constant pulling and training with one or two dogs and we will have it for many more months and many more miles.

    Excellent

    Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

    The harness has worked great for biking, I will transistion to skiing once the snow flies. The only thing I haven't worked out is a fit issue. The harnees has a tendancy to ride to the side. This is probably due to something I am doing wrong with the adjustments as I have not played with them much.

    Dog's Name: Gryphon

    Date of Review: 9/2/2012

    We kick up our paws in: Connecticut

    My canine companion(s): Shetland Sheepdog

    Excellent!

    Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

    We used this joring system for the first time today on a hike through the woods - it was fantastic. The harness was easy to adjust on Gryphon and fit him very well (38 pounds, small harness). He was clearly comfortable in it, even with the belly strap. The hipbelt was comfortable to wear and I was able to carry everything I needed for a day hike with it, except for a collapsable water bowl for Gryph. I'll try to rig something to the harness or hipbelt to use in the future. The towline was easy to manage, although perhaps some of that credit goes to the dog, who figured out very quickly how to adjust to the tension, and seemed to understand how to avoid getting tangled around trees. I would definitely suggest some training for larger or inexperienced dogs if they're likely to run into trouble with that towline, because it is quite long. I'm thrilled to be able to hike hands free and give Gryphon more room to roam!

    We kick up our paws in: Cornwall UK

    My canine companion(s): Alaskan Malamute

    Not fit for purpose

    Would you recommend this product?.: No

    The good bits are the human and dog harness; both really good, comfortable fits and durable construction. I love the quick release design and pockets available. Also the adjustments on the dog harness. However I was really dissappointed with the gangline. I'm 57kg female with a 34kg dog yet it takes minimal tension on the line for it to be pulled out completely offering no absorbency for either user. This would be fine if we wanted it to stroll in the park, but as a working harness to walk-jor, bike-jor, skate-jor it doesn't work. The bungy should be designed to absorb changes in pace and tension on the line so to not jolt dog or human and this doesn't happen - every step she takes I feel, likewise she's feeling the same. Really disappointed as this part of the product is useless to us - and we won't be able to get another towline to make use of the quick release feature.

    Very well constructed

    Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

    Best back support for human (so comfortable) and great sizing for my now 2 year-old medium size mix breed who weighs in at 30 lbs. She is a size SMALL. She is FAST and together we run and hike trails and compete in several 5k dog friendly events from Maine to Massachusetts and in between. I really like the two zipper pouches to hold a few essentials (tick spoon, poop bags, and car keys fit easily with room to spare) One small note: The water bottle holder is not Nalgene bottle size friendly, but rather more bicycle bottle size friendly. I love this harness and think it's the best on the market!

    Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

    this is a really good system for skijouring. However; there needs to be more adjustments for my skinny lab in the chest so that it doesn;t rub her raw from sliding side to side. Not a great fit for her harness, not enough adjustments. I do like the handle towards the back of the dog harness as you used to make a similar harness with handle way too close to the front and was difficult to hoist my dog into the ski chairlift.

    I take my dog running and this is a great system, it's the best. I also use this system with my mtb bike. I have tried a number of setups with my dog and this one works the best. Well worth the money. I get the impression this was made by people who actually use it.
