Back-clip harnesses Back-clip harnesses are the most popular type of harness on the market, they have a D ring on the back which makes it easy to attach a lead. They are great for dogs who are typically calm on walks and don’t pull a huge amount. Front-clip harnesses Front-clip harnesses (also known as anti-pull harnesses) have the D clip attached to the front of the harness around the dog’s chest. They work as when the dog pulls, the lead moves to the side and shortens giving the owner more control.

Typically dog harnesses come in small, medium, large and extra large options. If your dog already has a harness that fits, you probably don’t need to measure your dog. However, if this is the first time getting your dog a harness we’d recommend measuring around the base of the neck and the widest part of their torso. Then you can review each brand’s size guide against your dog’s measurements to find the perfect fit. If your dog is between sizes – always make sure to size up!

There are a few different accessories you’ll need before you walk your dog including: a collar an ID tag a suitable lead dog poo bags treats a muzzle (if required) We’d also recommend adjusting this list with the weather. If it’s particularly sunny you’re going to need a portable bowl and some water. If it’s rainy or muddy we’d recommend taking some old towels or wipes with you.
