We splurged and bought our Yorkie, Bella, a buddy belt for her 2nd birthday. The Buddy Belt definitely lives up to its claims! The belt is very comfortable for her and has gotten softer over time. She has had it for over a year now and it is worth every penny! Bella gets a lot of compliments on her Buddy Belt and we talk up the brand to other dog owners. Overall the Buddy Belt is an awesome product!
