Which Harness?

 

With a wide variety of harnesses on the market, it is often baffling to know which one is best suited for you and your dog. We have put together an in-depth description of the three high quality harnesses we currently offer, to help you make the right decision.

 

Dog Copenhagen Comfort Walk Pro Harness

This comes from the Danish company, Dog Copenhagen, who also produce the Urban Explorer Collar and Urban Trail Lead alongside the Comfort Walk Pro Harness. Their mission statement is to design comfortable and durable products with a functional and attractive design, aimed towards the active dog. Their ideas and products have largely been inspired by their own dogs.

THE HARNESS

The harness is lightweight with soft breathable padding on the chest, back and belly panels to ensure a comfortable fit. The lead fittings, of which there are two, one on the front and one on the back of the harness are made from aluminium meaning they will not rust. The harness is easy to put on over the dog’s head with clips on both side of the belly strap.  Additional features include a separate ring to attach an ID tag, as well as a grab handle. It is made in China.

FIT

It is available in 5 sizes, from small to XL and can be adjusted on both sides of the neck and belly.  To measure for fit you must measure around the widest part of the dog’s ribcage, and if in between sizes, it is recommended to go for the larger size.  

COLOUR

There are six different colours to choose from- Purple passion (purple), Orange sun- (orange), black, Mocca (brown), Wild rose (pink) and Ocean Blue (blue). All colours feature a reflective trim for enhanced visibility.

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

Can be machine washed at 30 degrees.

OUR FAVOURITE FEATURES

-          The grab handle comes in useful for restrained recalls, etc., and if you have a dog that does not like you to go for the collar.

-          The two lead attachment points mean you can use clip a lead on the front, back or both, providing greater control and flexibility.

-          In appearance the harness looks stylish, with a slightly different selection of colours from the norm.

IS THERE A MATCHING LEAD TO GO WITH IT?

The Urban Trail Lead is available in matching colours.

Haqihana Harness

Haqihana is an Italian company which was founded in 2003. Their aim is to use local materials to hand craft quality harnesses that ensure maximum comfort to your dog without causing restriction, rubbing or any other form of discomfort. The harness was inspired by international scientific literature to try and find a substitute for the collar

THE HARNESS

Each harness is handmade in Italy using high tenacity spun-dried nylon. This has been chosen as it guarantees colour homogeneity and resistance. It is also well known for being soft, having optimal strength to weight ratio, as well as being abrasion resistance and fully recyclable. The buckles and adjusters are made from acetal resin which is long lasting and shock resistance. The metal components are made from stainless steel. The harness is sewn together and overlapping parts that make contact with the skin are finished with a special stitch to avoid rubbing. The design has been carefully thought out so that pressure when the dog pulls or is being restrained, is properly distributed on the sternum and thorax only. This harness is unique in that it comes with a 5 year guarantee for any damage that is not considered normal wear and tear. It has two buckles on either side of the belly straps, so is easy to put on and off.

FIT

The harness comes in 7 standard sizes, XXXS to XL, also available on special order is a ‘long’ option for dogs with longer backs, such as Dachshunds and Greyhounds. It can be adjusted on both sides of the neck and belly, as well as the piece that goes between the dog’s legs, so therefore can be made to fit most shapes and sizes. To measure for size, measure around the dog’s girth at the widest part, 5cm behind the back of the front legs.

COLOUR

Currently available in multicolour (consisting of blue, red, yellow, green, turquoise and beige) , blue and pink (currently a limited edition).  Other colours available on special order.

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

Machine washable on a cold, delicate cycle

OUR FAVOURITE FEATURES

-          The 5 year guarantee means this harness is really built to last, to this date we have not had a customer who has had to make use of this, as no problems have been reported.

-          The fit and material mean it is an excellent option for short haired dogs who are rubbed by other harnesses, particularly behind the front legs.

-          A good degree of adjustability means that it lasts a growing dog a considerable amount of time.

-          Endorsed by Turid Rugaas.

-          Good value for money.

ZERO DC SHORT HARNESS

Zero DC is a Czechoslovakian company formed in 2000. The principal owner Dagmar Nesnerova is a keen sled dog sprint racer.  She has used her own wealth of knowledge, as well as combing with other mushers, to create harnesses that are comfortable, high quality and capitalise on efficiency.

THE HARNESS

The harness is lightweight and fully padded. It is made from 100% polyester, which is a water –repellent material, so ideal for dogs that like to go swimming, or walking in wet and muddy conditions. It is suitable for canicross, bike joring and everyday use, and is recommended as a great entry level harness for canicross. It directs pulling force away from the neck to the shoulders and chest, providing a snug fit without causing restriction. The wide straps help to distribute the pulling force and prevent twisting. The harness has two buckles either side of the belly straps and is taken on and off over the head. As the neck is not adjustable it can be harder to put on for dogs with a big head.

FIT

The short harness comes in 11 different sizes, including a mini I, mini II, a small long and a small medium, going all the way up to XXX Large.  The only adjustment point is on the belly straps. To measure, you must take your dog’s neck and chest circumference and back length.

COLOUR

There are 12 colours in total- camo, brown, neon orange, neon green, yellow, purple, pink, turquoise, green, red, blue and black. Some of these are only available on special order. Integrated reflector strips on all sides.

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

Can be machine washed up to 40 degrees.

OUR FAVOURITE FEATURES

-          Suitable for a variety of disciplines, namely canicross

-          Water repellent so great for dogs that like to swim, or for wet and muddy walks.

-          Wide range of sizes

-          Hardwearing whilst still remaining comfortable and padded for the dog.

IS THERE A MATCHING LEAD TO GO WITH IT?

Zero DC also make a bungee lead designed for canicross which come in a range of colours.
