the funny thing is we say that it is like for a dog
don't we put our dogs on a leash to keep them safe?
I don't like them much and wouldn't use one, but if you want to get one, then do it. I'm only guessing here, but I'm assuming that you are the one who has to keep her close by in public? Maybe assign running after her to your husband and see if that changes his mind at all.
If they had those things when mine were young I would absolutely have used them. Our oldest wandered away from us at a busy WalMart one year at Christmas when he was only three years old. It was the most terrifying 45 minutes of my whole life, and could have been prevented by using a harness, had such a thing existed back then. My DH's parents had more than one child at their daycare who would also have been much safer with a harness - one of them had a really bad case of AD/HD along with a few other issues and more than once had to be rescued from a tree. I will NEVER judge someone who uses a harness on their young children in busy public places. As a matter of fact, I would applaud them for having common sense and caring enough about their children to take that extra step to try to insure their safety.
Quoting Elle.tea.22:It's meant for animals. Not children. I think it's degrading and disrespectful to children.

Loved my Boba! It holds children from infancy to around 45 pounds easily, and can be used as a backpack style carrier for toddlers:

I guess that means for some people their dogs are more important than their children.
I say whatever keeps your child safe. screw what anyone thinks. the ones SO against it are probably the ones that keep their kids strapped in a stroller the whole time. I would rather my child be able to explore, I have not had to use a harness but I am all for them
