These “Y fronted” harnesses are very comfortable for the dog. They can also be used for walking if you don’t like your dog pulling on its neck. They can be used for tracking too. Many competition dogs are wearing my harness for tracking or scent work.
Most harnesses available in pet shops have a front like a collar so the dog puts pressure on its neck if it pulls, but this harness comes down in a Y shape at the front.
They are available in three sizes and are fully adjustable in five places.
- Small (16mm webbing) fits a Jack Russell Terrier, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, miniature schnauzer etc
- Medium (19mm webbing or 25mm webbing – you choose) fits a smallish cocker spaniel to large Kelpie.
- Large (25mm webbing) can adjust to fit large border collie size, up to a large dog (German shepherd, labrador or ridgeback size).
Both shoulder straps, both sides of the girth strap and the strap running along under the belly are all adjustable which allows for the huge range in fit for one size.
You can also get a second attachment point added to the front for another $4.00 This allows you to connect the lead to the front of the chest which aids in stopping a dog pulling
If you are going to take your harness to the beach you might like to consider brass or stainless steel dees. That would add $7.00 to the price of a harness (or $9.00 if it is a front and rear attach). Standard dees are nickel plated steel.
An adapter is available to allow the harness to be connected to a seat belt and used in the car – $8.00
Available in thirteen colours: – purple, black, rose, burgundy, hot pink, red, neon orange, gold, hot lime, green, teal, ocean blue or royal blue (also patterns – $9.00 extra)
Price: small $22.00 (or $26 for front and rear attach)
medium: $24.00 (or $28 for front and rear attach)
large: $26.00 (or $30 for front and rear attach)
