Multi-purpose dog harness for general walking, running, Canicross, Hiking and Climbing - 3 Strap escape proof design

A versatile and very lightweight dog harness which can be used as a stable, low profile harness for everyday walking, as well as an aid for running, hiking, trekking and climbing. This is one of our top three best-selling harnesses for a reason - it ticks all the boxes!

It is a suitable option for many breeds of dog, especially those with longer bodies and deep chests, which includes gun dogs, Sight hounds and is very popular as a Whippet harness or for breeds like like Greyhounds, Lurchers, Pointers and Saluki dogs. Due to the design and configuration of the three straps it is also ideal for running, hiking, climbing and Canicross. This is because it offers freedom of movement around the shoulders. There is also a front clip so it can be used with a double ended lead as a no pull option. 

It is designed to fit the dog in three important areas and provides a comfortable and very secure fit all round. As it has a third rear strap, this makes it almost impossible for any dog to back out of it. Therefore it is an excellent choice as an escape proof dog harness. It can also be used to go over coats and jumpers etc. If you are solely using it for this purpose, allow for this when you take your dog's measurement.

The main features of this harness are:

  • Offers padding around the chest 
  • Includes a large, comfortable top plate on the back
  • Great choice for jogging or running
  • Low profile so has anti-snag properties
  • Keeps main shoulder area free to move
  • Extremely lightweight
  • Has both a top and front lead ring
  • Adjustment points in 6 places
  • Ideal for hiking, trekking and hill climbing
  • Spreads the load and pulling forces
  • Breathable fabric and quick drying
  • Ideal for dogs with longer bodies and deep chests 
  • Great as a Whippet harness, Lurchers and Greyhounds
  • Comes with a handle
  • Rear strap adds escape proof feature
  • Available in red, orange and green

This harness is a favourite with runners and active people who require a fully supportive harness for running, climbing, long walks, trekking and boating. It is very popular among owners of Whippets, Greyhounds, Lurchers and Pointers, but also Dachshunds and even Basset hounds.

Here is a video showing the main attributes of the running dog harness, including fit and materials.

Will it fit all dog breeds?

This dog harness should fit all but the very smallest of dogs. If you have a Chihuahua or a small terrier there are better options. It is very popular as a Whippet harness as it offers a secure three strap fit to cover the long body and deep chest. However, it will fit many other dog breeds.

Is it easy to take on and off?

Yes. This is easy to put on and take off. A series of quick release buckles make this process simple.

How heavy is this harness?

It is very lightweight but offers a great deal of support. 

Do I use the top or front lead clip when running?

It is worth testing this out to see which one works for you. If you have the room for your dog to run by your side then you can attach a lead to the front as well as to the top. However, if your dog moves ahead of you a front clip could mean that the lead gets in the way. If this is the case it is better to attach the lead to the clip around your dog's back/shoulders.

Why is this well suited to deep chested dogs?

Three straps gives you the option to open up and reduce them to fit around the front part of the chest, behind the front legs and also to the rear of the rib cage. This allows for a more uniform fit for many breeds so it makes a great Whippet harness or one to fit a Greyhounds, Pointer and Lurcher for example. 

Why is it a good option for dogs with longer bodies?

The three straps means that you have a stable platform and security along a slightly longer body area. The third strap can reach towards the mid to lower back and for many breeds this gives added support and balance. It also equals out the pulling forces.

Which size do I need?

Please refer to the size guide tab and use that as a reference. Please do not guess the size as harness manufacturers have very different sizing. 

What are the available colours?

This version comes in Red, Orange and green

How strong are the lead clips?

They are very strong and made from a light alloy metal.

What type of running lead should I use?

There are various leads available, but we would recommend that you use a good quality one. This is especially true if you are using this as a running dog harness. The options will include a good bungee lead that will stay fitted around you and will have some elastic properties to cushion the forces. Please see our bungee / running leads on this website.

Can I use a double ended training lead with this harness?

Yes. You simply clip one end of the double ended training lead to the front and the other end to the top clip. This will then give you an option to use it as a no pull harness. You only need to apply gentle forces to the front when walking your dog.

Where are the items shipped from and how long will they take to get to me?

All of our dog harnesses are stored and shipped from the UK. All UK deliveries should take 2-3 working days to get to you but please allow up to 4 working days during busy periods.

This escape proof dog harness has a lot of adjustments in the neck, chest/rib cage and rear areas 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 and rear.

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.
