This multi-use harness is our best seller!

 

Our Distance Harness is the harness of choice for skijoring, bikejoring, scootering, canicross and dog trekking. It is an ideal harness for the use with BTL and Springer bike attachment. The Distance Harness is also a great harness for roading (exercising gun dogs with an ATV or bike). It can also be used as a "truck" harness or a car safety harness. The Distance Harness is becoming increasingly popular as a walking harness for pet dog owners. No more choking for hard-pulling dogs! And most but not least, this harness is one of the most popular harnesses for long distance mushing, as our Distance Harness has been designed with the priceless expertise of four-time Iditarod champion Jeff King.

Why do we recommend our Distance Harness for skijoring/bikejoring/canicross over an x-back harness? The line angle between the dog and the skijorer (biker, runner) is steeper than the line angle between a dog team and a sled, which has a lower point of attachment. When a skijoring line is connected to a typical x-back harness, the steeper angle will often cause a lifting force on the harness. The design of our Distance Harness takes in consideration the steeper line angle and while using this harness, the dog's pull force becomes more evenly distributed.

The Distance Harness only reaches about 1/3 down the dog's body, which eliminates the pressure on the dog's hips while pulling. Therefore it makes this harness an excellent choice of a harness for any dog with lower back problems. Crabbing dogs (dogs running sideways) will straighten out. Our harness comes highly recommended by Wes Rau, top canine physical therapist.

This harness is made out of 1 1/4 inch wide durable webbing featuring an attractive, eye-catching pattern. A reflective thread is woven into the edges of the webbing for an increased night time visibility. The body strap is adjustable. The Distance Harness is fully padded and comfortable for the dog to wear. The slick padding material will allow for the harness to rotate freely around the dog’s body.

 

For proper harness fit measure the dog's neck circumference half way between the usual collar position and shoulder blades. Not sure about size? Go by the weight of your dog.
