The design of this harness began with a need for a form fitting harness that stays upright on the dog while pulling a wheelchair and giving balance to the handler when they transition from the chair. A dog’s strength for pulling comes from the chest and our Pulling & Balance Harness is a safe and effective way to utilize that power. Unlike pulling a wheelchair that is attached to the dog’s collar this harness takes the stress away from the dog’s neck and it is much safer for the dog.
Attached on the top of the Harness over the dog’s girth is a stand up handle. The handle is positioned so it is very easy to grab onto the dog for balance. The heavy welded D-ring for pulling is also located on the top of the Pulling & Balance Harness. It is very easy to hold unto the handle and snap the lead to the D-ring. There is a non-restricting back plate on the harness top to place an identification patch. It is big enough to fit one of our specialty patches. The Pulling & Balance Harness comes with two rocker patches. One rocker patch for the front of the harness and the other for the top of the harness. Any specialty patches are an extra option.
Our Pulling & Balance Harness is very simple to put on the dog. You open the girth strap buckles, slip the harness over the dog’s head, and run the chest pad bottom guide strap through the dog’s front legs and then back up to where the girth strap meets to buckle the harness. The front chest straps have double adjustments. The girth has two side release buckles and adjusting slides.All the stress points on the dog are padded. The underside of both the back plate and chest plate are felted, and then covered with sherpa. The girth strap has two removable washable sherpa covers. The back and chest plates are covered on the top with rugged 1000 denier materials. The front of the chest plate is visible at night as the webbing running vertical on the chest is reflective.

This Pulling & Balance Harness should fit snuggly around the dog’s girth.
When measuring your dog measure the girth just behind the dogs front legs and up over the back of the dog. This harness will fit up to a 26" - 40" girth measurement.
Speciality Patch (if purchased) will be sewn to the vest at no charge.
