My lovely girls are getting on a bit now .. 11 and 13 years this May. I have kept them on the best food for them, supplements for joints, fishy stuff, exercise and oodles of love and cuddles. Moll is quite deaf and a bit stiff after sleeping, she struggles to jump into car sometimes .. I am arranging a ramp!
Anyhoo ... Liz still thinks she is a puppy but has a number of limpoma two of which are on her neck and throat. I am thinking of leaving off the collar and using a harness instead. Any comments or recommendations please?

I use these:

Tried one after a friend bought one for her dog and was so impressed I changed all the others over to them as well. They previously had the Ruffwear ones.

Hi Gerri

I use the truelove harnesses and get on well with them, I have also used the fleece harnesses which I find are very soft but do hold the water when wet https://www.dog-games-shop.co.uk/perfect-fit-fleece-dog-harness.html
