The Tough Skin™ Harness is a rugged version of our Second Skin™ Harness.
The Tough Skin™ Harness is for those who like the Second Skin™ Harness, but need something that withstands the greater wear and tear of sled dogs or the elements of field environments.
This light and ultra-modern harness is made out of soft mesh fabric. Unlike the Second Skin™ Harness, the Tough Skin™ Harness features a durable shell protecting the outside of the harness. Our Tough Skin™ Harness is very comfortable for the dog to wear and it is suitable for any activity where the point of attachment is higher or even with the dog’s back. This includes skijoring, bikejoring, scootering, jogging as well as sledding. The length of the Tough Skin™ Harness (including the tug loop) is about the same as the length of a regular x-back harness. But unlike an x-back harness, our Second Skin™ Harness will relieve the pressure off the dog’s hips. Unlike other "short" harnesses the pull force here is evenly distributed and comes both from the top and the underside of the harness.

How to measure for a proper harness fit: Measure the circumference of your dog’s neck from an inch or so above the shoulder blades to an inch or so above the breastbone and back, then compare that measurement to the sizing chart. If the neck size and suggested weight don’t match, go with the bigger harness to ensure the body strap won't sit too close to the dog's armpits.
•S 18.5-19 inches (40 - 49 lbs.)
•M 19.5-20 inches (50 - 59 lbs.)
•L 20.5-21 inches (60 - 69 lbs.)
•XL 21.5-22 inches (70 - 79 lbs.)
•XXL 22.5-23 inches (80 - 89 lbs.)
IMPORTANT NOTICE: This harness is exchangeable (returnable) in the same manner as our other harnesses (see Shipping & Returns). However, due to the nature of the material this harness is made out of, dog hair will stick to it more than to any other harness we carry. Therefore if the harness is not *completely* free of dog hair when sent back to us for exchange/return, the exchange/return request will be denied without refunding the purchase.
