Calling all harnesses!

I am looking to buy a leather harness for protection work. I really like a couple of the Dean Tyler harnesses, but they are a bit 'pricey' and I'm sure that's not the only company out there making good working harnesses. I for some reason can't find much though.

Can anyone recommend some good agitation harnesses? And of course post any pictures of your dobes wearing them!

Padded Leather Harness

I love the one I got from activedogs, much less than most other places and awesome, amazing, great quality...can ya tell I love it? I love activedogs stuff in general, they have a store front up north 6 hours from me, and all the things I've bought have lasted really well!

I really prefer that the buckles aren't on the chest as well, it's just a security thing I have. So that's one reason I really went for it, the sheepskin hasn't padded down at all yet with some minimal use. Mabel got a large and she's on the third hole on each side







I think juno has the same one, not sure if it's from the same people, and nox got the same one in black from activedogs

Has yours gotten any less stiff or have you tried oiling it? It seems in pictures with yours and Juno's that the leather looks very stiff. I'd assume it'd be able to be worked with oil and time, but there were always some halters and leather works in the horse world that no matter what never loosened up.

Also what size do you have and how wide is mabel's girth? The bitch is almost exactly juno's size, so I assume whatever she got would work.

Mine is from Fullgripgear | Harnesses & Capes

It showed up soft and pliable, but still very sturdy. They fit Dobes VERY well, which for me has been hard to find because so many harnesses aren't designed to work with the shape of the Doberman chest.

Mabel measured at 30/31 so i got a large and she is in the third/middle hole on each size.

It's stiff but from putting it on and messing with it I wouldn't worry about it staying that way, (she hasn't worn it much) but I can see it softening a decent amount fairly quickly with good work and some oiling (maybe 1-2 grades above the average latigo collar which is softer). I wouldn't say it's super stiff to start with though, kind of a medium grade of all the leather I've worked with. The straps are mildly stiff but basically come at a good softness, it's moreso right by the chest that needs a bit of breaking in, mabels had hers on about 5 times for short periods and has "molded" hers to her shape much nicer now than how it sits in the pictures (the day we got it)

p.s. i've seen the exact same harness on a few other sites including an amish one for 2-3 times as much so if you pick it activedogs is the cheapest by far! and has some pretty fast shipping

I've been looking for a harness, too. I've looked at a bunch of websites.
K9 Guardian, Professional K9 Equipment
Leerburg Dog Training | 16,000 pages of dog training information, 500 free dog training streaming videos, free eBooks, podcasts, by Ed Frawley and Michael Ellis
Hortons Quality K9
Police K9 Training Equipment | Military Working Dog Gear | Professional K9 Training Gear | Ray Allen

I'm pretty sure I've looked a some more, but this is all I can find, right offhand.

I really like that one. Beautiful dog by the way. And I too am worried about it fitting the dobermans. That's why I'm considering the dean tyler's more 'custom' fit. I'm currently working my boy in an old style agitation harness that was built for a rottweiler. Needless to say the straps are all on the lowest settings and still not quite right. Is the first harness on that link the one you use?

It's not necessarily an "issue" but if I can get a decent leather one for under $120, I'd rather do that than spend more. I assumed that logic made sense lol

I'm not going to save money and signifcantly compromise quality though. I always bought nice horse tack in the first place and never had to worry about replacing any of it or repairs for years so I understand the quality thing. But even then I always found 'deals' I think $100 is a decent budget for a harness

I have a nylon one from Dean & Tyler I purchased for my puppy. Can't say much about the leather ones, but I am really happy with the quality of their nylon harness and leash!

I really like that quick - release one that Ray Allen has although I prefer the neoprene padding on the other. if anyone ever insists that the nylon one I already have isn't good enough, I'd go with Ray Allen. In the meantime, that money goes to agility expenses.

Yup that's what I'm getting! If Im not happy with the leather quality when it gets here ill buy the more expensive one. Figured the clips seemed handy considering I usually handle three dogs back to back and/or rushing after helping the decoy take a break.

Holy Crap! I spent $65 on my harness from Schutzhund equipment, Police k9 equipment supplier , dog equipment, dog harness . I had it for 8 years (everyone in canada pretty much has the same harnesses, gets crazy at seminars cause they get all messed up with everyone elses!). I had a medium and it fit a huge range of dogs, from my dobe, to my gsd, to the mali puppy I had. The only reason I do not have it now is that my van was stolen with all my training equipment in it. They also have a "rubber" version that is much more supple and easy to manage cause all it needs is a wipe down if its dirty.

Most ppl I know have had theirs since they started ring, and we use our harnesses alot! Very rarely do we every train just on a collar.

Here are two pics of the same harness on two different dogs. One on my dobie and the other on a gsd.

Well I received the harness today! I ended up contacting the manufacturer of the harnesses that Ray Allen sells and gave them the dog's exact measurements to get a custom fit. My decoy also talked my out of the snaps, and after thinking about it, I do prefer the flat look much better.

Just wanted to add to anyone who reads this thread, that the leather quality is amazing! It arrived so soft and supple, and is a very good quality for the price. Will be putting it on the dogs tomorrow, might snap a picture!

Man, I wish I could afford a custom harness for Ilka. So far, I like the one I got her (she got to wear it today), but I've got it adjusted about as small as it can go. If they'd had a smaller size, I would have gotten that. As it was, it's the smallest one I could find. She's such a Skinny Minnie.

Is the first harness on that link the one you use?
Yep, first on e in the ink. I told them it was for a dobe, and they sent me the one I needed. Really great folks to deal with.
