Hurtta harnesses are suitable for active walks and hikes for all dogs, but they are especially recommended for dogs with back and neck problems. When the dog pulls on the leash, the close-fitting harness distributes pressure evenly across the chest, preventing damage to the dog’s vertebrae. Thanks to the wide padding and ergonomic design, the harness is comfortable and does not cause wear on the dog’s fur or skin. Easy and quick to put on, both dog and owner will get accustomed to the harness in no time.
This style of harness is also popular with flyball competitors due to the easy to reach handle on the back of the harness.
Hurtta dog harnesses are available in two classic models: the Scandinavian standard harness and the Y harness that is more common in Europe.
Made from durable Neoprene, the dog harnesses are fitted with efficient 3M reflectors making them great for low light visibility . Thanks to the addition of a fastener, the armpit padding stays in place when the dog is moving, providing protection from the clip buckle.
The Padded Harness is available in 4 colours: Birch (Green), Juniper, Cherry and Black.
To measure for this harness, you need to measure the chest:
The chest measurement should be take at the widest point of the chest from behind the front legs. (shown in the image above)
