Low profile and super light Harness for running, Canicross, Hiking and Climbing - With 3 Strap No escape design

A versatile and very lightweight running dog harness that has so many uses. This is classed as a harness for every day use, for running, hiking, climbing, Canicross and also as a no pull option. 

It is designed to fit the dog in three important areas and provide a comfortable and very secure fit all round. As it has a third rear strap, this makes it very difficult for any dog to back out of the harness. It is therefore an excellent choice as a no escape dog harness. It can also be used to go over other 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 deep chests
  • Comes with a handle
  • Rear strap adds no escape feature
  • Available in red, orange and green

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

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

Will it fit all dog breeds?

This running dog harness should fit all but the very smallest of dogs. If you have a Chihuahua or a small terrier there are better options. 

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. 

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.

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 running 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.
