Truelove Lightweight Dog Harness To Prevent Pulling - TLH6071
The Truelove TLH6071 is a lightweight dog harness that can be used as a standard, every day walking aid, and to help prevent your dog from pulling on the lead.
It includes padded areas around the lower chest and under belly areas for extra comfort and reflective materials built in to straps and piping around the main plates.
The reflective properties means that it will show up in car headlights and street lights when it is dark and it also has a loop where a LED light can be attached. Therefore, it makes a good high viz option for darker walks. There is a reinforced handle just above the top clip, which can come in handy if you want to lift or move your dog away from confrontational situations or to aid climbing on hikes etc.
This harness suits most dog breeds and as it is lightweight it can also be used for puppies and smaller dogs. It ranges in size from extra small to XL - the largest having a maximum girth (around rib cage behind front legs, as shown in size guide image) of 82-106 cms so is also a great fit for large dog breeds.
How can it prevent pulling?
The structure, design and ergonomics of this True love harness ensures a good all-round fit and customers tell us they seem to have more control over their dogs when using this harness. Add a double ended lead to both the top and front clip and you have a dog harness that can help to prevent pulling. When you add one end of a lead to a top clip you have a braking action - add the other end to the front clip and you can use a subtle steering motion to direct your dog away from pulling forward. This can happen naturally as the front part of the lead goes tight.
If your dog pulls excessively, a harness with a top and front clip could be a very good investment. Many dog owners also purchase a double ended lead as it has several uses. A lead with two ends can also be used as a standard lead, to tether your dog and even as a hands free option. Please see the double-ended lead page here to see how it works.
Can it be used as an every day harness?
Yes. They are a really good choice as an all-round harness and for every day use. Many of our customers have different requirements - some want to replace a tired looking harness or a strap only version. Some comment that they don't like the way their existing harness fits the dog or that it often backs out of the harness. We often recommend a harness like the True love TLH6071 because it is well made, has some padding and is easy to adjust and fit. The clips are also super strong and the fact that it goes under the legs and fastens at the sides makes it VERY difficult for a dog to back out of.
By attaching a standard lead to the top clip of this harness, you have a quality dog walking aid that is comfortable for the dog, strong and secure, easy to wash and built to last.
Can it be used as a puppy harness?
Yes. They are lightweight but very strong. Therefore, they are a great choice for puppies and smaller dogs. They are more robust than the mesh harnesses so will stand up to pulling and wear and tear from large dogs too.
This model of harness is designed to match the collar and lead shown in these matching sets. An orange, black or neon yellow double ended lead can also be purchased here.
Will this harness fit my dog?
We have fitted these harnesses to many breeds of dog and the range of size and adjustment is large. However, please do check minimum and maximum sizes in the size tab before ordering as not all sizes of harness are the same from all manufacturers.
How easy are these harnesses to fit?
You simply place the neck opening over the dog's head, tuck the front plate and straps through the front legs and fasten at the sides - it takes less than 10 seconds. You can adjust the neck and body straps to fit, when the harness is off or on the dog.
How do I make sure that I get the correct size?
All you need to do is measure your dog around the girth of the lower chest/rib cage as shown on the image in the size guide. This is the circumference around the widest part of the chest and just behind the front legs. You can then match that size with one shown in the size table. If you are very close to the next size up then we'd recommend that you get the larger size.
Where are you located and how long will my order take to get to me?
We are based in Suffolk, UK and deliveries should take 2-3 working days. Please allow up to 4 working days during busy periods. If you reside outside of the UK, your dog harness should be with you within 5-9 working days.

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 as well so have a play around.
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.
