Gold Paw set out to make the “most comfortable harness anywhere,” and having tried many types on various dogs I can say they may have done it. I have a somewhat persnickety dog — usually if I leave her harness on too long she’s scratching at the touch points — but this has not so much been the case with the Cloud.
The American-made 3-D fabric is stretchy and lightweight, but it has also held up well to all the abuse Maddie’s put it through — swimming, hiking, rolling, playing. It seems more reathable than some of the alternatives, many of which feature fleece. The only slight negative I experienced is that it goes on by lifting a paw, slightly less quick than other harnesses. I would also say this harness is not the most helpful for dogs who really pull. For them I recommend the Freedom No Pull Harness.
I really appreciate that if my dog does pull, the harness doesn’t put pressure on her throat and cause that awful choking sound. Instead it pulls “on her shoulders where it belongs.” Overall the Cloud is fantastic for year-round use, attractive looking, and really comfortable for your furry sidekick’s outdoor adventures.
