These are estimated weights for each size.  Dogs and weights will vary by breed.
Custom sized harnesses are available upon request.  Please call to order. 

*Small color-coded nylon cords are added to the end of each harness to indicate size.  See picture below.

** Any heavier than this, buy a saddle.  (Just kidding!)

ABOUT OUR HARNESSES:

We feature X-Backs.  These harnesses are made of the best webbing available.  All of our harnesses are lined with a DENSE CLOSED CELL FOAM with nylon or fleece lining.  This combination gives greater comfort and shape for years to come.  Remember...our harnesses wash well.  We do recommend line drying.  The foam keeps the harnesses looking and feeling like new!

HARNESS SIZING

We recommend use of the actual weight of the dog, actual neck (collar) measurement and length of back measurement to come up with the correct fit for a dog harness.  See Harness Sizing Chart.  If you need help, please contact us at 218-326-3718.

WEBBING TYPES

We feature two weights of webbing harnesses.  The #1 FAVORITE CHOICE is Standard Weight Nylon.  This is the traditional weight that has been around forever.  It is recommended for the recreational musher and is often the weight of choice for the mid- and long-distance musher.  Lightweight Nylon is a very strong light weight nylon.  The weave is nice and tight.  The webbing lies flat and wears well.  This is the weight recommended for anyone concerned about weight.  This is often used by sprint mushers.
