This traditional singletree dog harness is used for weight pulling, sledding, and heavy-duty hauling. Frequently, it is used in wheel position (near the sled) because the low-draft hitch is more level with the gangline.
The hitch ring uses limited side slip to compensate for off-center loads, and the backstraps feature the same sliding "X" as the X-back harness.
This harness comes with a hardwood spreader kit. The spreader bar should be slightly wider than the rear of the dog. You may cut the bar if needed. The spreader bar should be touching the rear of the dog when the harness is in a relaxed position. Put the screws provided through the fabric and into the pre-drilled spreader bar. The height of the hitch is adjustable, so the load is always held in place for maximum pull.
3 measurements are required for this harness - Please read our guide on Measuring your Dog for a Weight Pull Harness.
