I bought my first Buddy Belt 8 years ago and still use it! It's amazing. And even more amazing . . . when I bought it I didn't put it tight enough on my puppy . . . so of course she got her teeth in there and chewed it. I contacted the company and they hand delivered (by bicycle) a brand new one right to my door. Ever since then I have raved about their excellent service and quality to anyone considering a buddy belt!
