A comfortable, quick drying harness for all dogs.
Possibly one of the best and most effective harnesses around, the Hurtta Outdoors Padded Harness is a Scandinavian design for the active dog whether he is exploring woodland, swimming in the sea or pottering around town.
As an alternative to collars, Hurtta Harnesses are beautifully designed to distribute load across your dog's chest instead of his neck. A harness should be an accessory of interest if your dog suffers from back and neck problems.
The padded material is neoprene which is the same stuff wetsuits are made of so when your dog get's wet, his harness will dry very quickly but also won't rub him when wet or dry.
The neoprene padding protects your dog from any rubbing under the armpits and prevents wear and tear on his fur even during demanding walks
The outer webbing of the Padded Harness is rugged nylon that's dripping in 3M reflectors aiding visibility in low light conditions. Once you adjust the chest strap to fit your dog for the first time, this harness will go on in a flash from then on.
There's a clever handle-loop at the top of the harness for close control in emergencies or if your little tinker is trying to run off! Attached to the handle-loop is a heavy duty steel ring for your lead and an ID tag.
The harness is adjustable around the chest area and there should always be a little daylight around the neckline to allow your dog to move freely.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOG
- Make sure your dog is standing upright and you have your tape measure handy.
- The chest (1) measurement should be taken from just behind your dog's front legs. Wrap the tape measure all the way around your dog's chest. We recommend adding a few fingers for comfort.
- The base of the neck (2) measurement is NOT the collar area but instead the very, very base of the neck. Wrap the tape measure around this part of the neck allowing for a good few fingers of room.
- Between sizes? Try measuring the chest for a fairly snug fit without room for your fingers. Then try measuring again with a few fingers in the tape measure. If your first 'close fit' measurement was already borderline and your 'fingers' measurement pushes the reading into the next size, we suggest going for the next size. If however both measurements fall within the smaller size, opt for the smaller size.
- Don't get hung up on the lower neck measurement as it is the least important part to the harness. We do however publish the neck sizes to aid owners with dogs who have huge necks in proportion to their chests, such as Pugs, who will need to keep an eye on the neck measurement.
