These fleece harnesses, designed and made by Xtra Dog, have an O-ring at the top, plus one at the front, so that they can be used with a double-ended lead, making it easier to stop your dog from pulling. A harness takes pressure off the dog’s neck and the connection of the lead is closer to the dog’s natural centre of gravity than it is when attached at the collar.
There are many different harnesses on the market, some good and some not so good and there is unlikely to be one brand that is perfect for every dog. However we believe that the Xtra Dog harness offers many benefits to most dogs:
*Padded with luxury polar fleece providing comfort for your dog.
*Eleven sizes to choose from so there are sizes to fit most dogs.
*Additional front rings as standard, correctly positioned so that the harness can be used with 2 two points of contact, ideal for Tellington TTouch leading exercises and for teaching your dog to walk in their natural balance.
*Good between-the-legs measurements, so that the harness does not sit in your dog’s armpits.
*O-rings rather than D-rings, to lessen wear and tear from on the webbing.
*Hand-made in the UK.
HOW TO MEASURE
To Correctly measure/size your dog, measure him or her behind the front legs around the rib cage and neck. Start at POINT OF BREASTBONE and pull tape snugly around base of the neck and back to POINT OF BREASTBONE. Go all the way around neck and back. THIS IS NOT A COLLAR MEASUREMENT. Your harness should fit snugly but not tight. Allow two finger width all of the way around. The legs are adjustable left and right.
