A dog harness is a great piece of gear for assisting in training, providing support to elderly or disabled canines, handling working or service dogs, or keeping your best furry friend safe from the beginning to the end of your adventures. Explore our Harness Guide below to learn what each of our harnesses are specially designed for and discover which might best suit the needs of your canine companion.
Front Range™ Harness
The Ruffwear Front Range™ Harness is an everyday harness for any dog! It’s easy to put on and with four points of adjustment, it offers a snug fit for all shapes and sizes. There are two leash attachment points: one on the back for normal walking and one on the front for extra control with leash-pullers. An ID pocket quietly stores the tags and eliminates the additional need for a collar, while the padded chest and belly panel make the Front Range™ comfortable for all-day wear. This harness is a great option for dogs who are working on obedience training or for any dog as an alternative to wearing a collar.
Web Master™ Harness
Our Web Master™ Harness is the go-to for working dogs, elderly or disabled dogs who need a little extra support, and “Houdini” dogs who manage to wriggle out of a regular harness. This harness features five points of adjustment, padding in the chest and belly straps, and an anatomical design that’s comfortable and allows balanced lifting and load dispersion. An oversized handle makes it easy to hold onto the dog or provide assistance over obstacles. The Ruffwear Web Master™ Harness includes two convenient leash attachment points: a V-ring on the top or a webbing loop behind the padded handle. It’s also the base of our popular Palisades Pack!
Web Master Pro™ Harness
Designed specifically for professional avalanche rescue dogs and Search and Rescue teams and used widely by service and working dogs, Ruffwear’s Web Master Pro™ Harness is similar to its Web Master™ Harness, but it’s made with all-metal hardware and has two low-profile zippered pockets. The metal hardware and reverse coil weatherproof zippers withstand the rigors of professional use in snow, ice and dirty environments, and the two side pockets feature interior stretch-mesh organizers to hold small essentials and allow ID patches to be sewn on easily.
Our “climbing harness for dogs,” the Ruffwear Doubleback™ Harness is designed to safely lift and lower dogs in areas that would otherwise be inaccessible. Freshly redesigned in 2016 with less weight and bulk, this belay harness is strength-rated to 2,000 lbf or 8.9 kN, and it includes padded belly support and leg loops that can be stowed when not in use. The harness offers seven points of adjustment for a secure and comfortable fit, a clearly labeled tie-in point that’s easy to connect to a rope, and anodized aluminum buckles for added safety and durability.
Load Up™ Harness
The Ruffwear Load Up™ Harness keeps dogs safe and secure during automotive travel to and from adventures, allowing the driver to focus. It attaches to existing seatbelts for a universal fit, and it can be worn comfortably during extended travel, including rest stops and bathroom breaks. The Load Up™ Harness is built with strength-rated all-metal hardware and has been tested to successfully withstand sudden vehicle movements and crash tests.
Our Omnijore™ Harness is part of the Ruffwear Omnijore™ System, which includes the Omnijore™ Hipbelt and Omnijore™ Towline. The harness, in conjunction with the hipbelt and towline, features a pulling-specific design for dog-powered activities like skijoring, bikejoring, mountainboard-joring, skatejoring, or canicross. It includes four points of adjustment for a great fit and removable girth straps to assist dogs through the joring learning curve.
