Will it fit all dog breeds?
We have fitted these harnesses at dog shows to Chihuahuas and Leonbergers so in our experience they are suitable for all sizes and breeds of dog. However, please do check minimum and maximum sizes in the size tab before ordering.
Does this harness have to go over my dog's head?
No. You have a choice of undoing a clip on the neck if you prefer not to put it over your dog's head. We know from experience that there are many dogs out there who do not like things going over the head so this is a welcome addition for people (and dogs) that want it. If it is not such a big deal, then the previous version (TLH5651) is just as good in terms of performance.
Can this be used as an every day, standard harness?
Yes. We sell a lot of harnesses to customers who just want to use it as a standard harness and to attach a standard lead to the top fixing only.
How can this harness help to stop my dog pulling?
This harness from Truelove offers a design that fits around the front torso and includes a front and top fastening point. You can use a double ended lead, by attaching one end to the front clip and the other end to the top clip. This combination classes it mechanically as a no-pull harness.
How does the neck clip open and shut?
This harness has a clip which allows you to release and fasten it around your dog's neck, rather than placing a fixed neck opening over the head. The clip is simply tilted at an angle and placed through the slit to release - you do the opposite to fasten again.
What are the front and top lead rings used for?
As this type of harness has both a top and front clip lead attachment point, they are designed to help stop your dog from pulling when out on walks. The principle behind this is very simple - the top clip around your dogs upper back acts as a brake and the front clip is used to gently steer your dog away from intently pulling forward. This subtle steering motion works naturally with a double ended lead when the end goes tight at the front.
How do I fit the harness?
Simply undo the neck part by unclipping the special quick-release retainer, place it around your dog's neck and then clip it shut. You can then place the front part of the chest plate under the front legs, bring the straps up around the dog's side and fasten on each side. Please see the quick fit video in the tab above for a demonstration of how to fit.
Which size do I need?
Please refer to the size guide tab and use that as a reference. Please do not guess the correct size as manufacturers have very different sizing. Simply, run a tape behind the front legs and around the girth of the chest, as shown in the size guide tab. You can then match this to the sizes of each harness. If you are very close to the next size up it is advised that you opt for the larger size.
What are the available colours?
This version of the True Love dog harness is available in black, orange, pink and blue and there are various matching set options in these colours for collars and leads.
Is this harness High Viz / can be seen on dark walks?
Each harness is fitted with 3M Scotchlite reflective strips on the main body and straps, so your dog can be seen easily when car headlights or street lights are directed towards it. It also has a loop for an LED light so you can easily attach a flashing light for even more visibility.
So why does a double-ended lead make such a difference to this harness?
It will make a significant difference if you have a dog that pulls hard. A double ended lead attached to the front and top clip will help to halt and steer your dog in a controlled, subtle way.
What are the materials used in the dog harnesses?
They are polyester with 3M scotchlite materials to help with high viz during dark walks.
What type of adjustment points does it have?
This style of harness has four main adjustment points. You can adjust the neck size and also unclip the neck to fit. The adjustment points on the main chest/belly area also have lots of range.
What type of lead/leash fastenings does it have?
This harness has a front clip which can be used as a steering mechanism to help stop your dog from pulling. This is best used in conjunction with a double ended lead.
Can this harness be used in the car?
Yes. you can put a seat belt through the handle and clip in, or use a strap with a seat belt clip.

The harnesses have a lot of adjustments in the neck and chest area so even if you think that your dog is an odd size, please use the chest measurements above as the guide. A harness that fits around the chest should offer enough adjustment to fit around the neck.
Please note: It is VERY important that you measure your dog's chest/belly area before you order a dog harness. Please do not guess the size as this can result in a return where you will pay for the return postage.
