The NEW Hurtta Padded Y Harness is suitable for active walks 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 damages 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 when fitted correctly. Easy and quick to put on, both dog and owner will get accustomed to the harness in no time.
Hurtta harnesses are available in two classic models: the Scandinavian Padded Harness and the Y harness that is more common in Europe. Although both harnesses are suitable for all popular dog breeds, the alternative models provide additional choice for optimal fit.
Made from durable Neoprene, the harnesses are fitted with efficient 3M reflectors. Thanks to the addition of a fastener, you can adjust this harness to fit just right. Do ensure you can get a few fingers under the straps so this harness can move with your dog lead - a tight harness is a harness that rubs, regardless of the brand!

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.
