Our Leerburg dog training harness are the finest leather dog harnesses that money can buy.

The 2 Snap Agitation Harness is perfect for fast and easy on and off. Our harnesses are made from soft Latigo leather. You will never find a better quality leather agitation or tracking harness.

The hardware on our leather dog agitation and tracking harnesses are the highest quality chrome and nickel plated steel. All of our leather harnesses are sewn and pop riveted to insure the highest security. This is very important in Schutzhund and Police K9 training.

Our agitation harness is designed to fit almost every size working dog. It is flexible and will not rub or wear on your dog. It has a padded breast plate that absorbs the shock of a strong dog hitting the end of a line during bite work.

We are often asked if the trainer should buy an agitation harness or a wide leather agitation collar for bite work. The answer to this question lies with the dog.

Some dogs pull so hard on a collar that they choke. If you are using a collar during training and this happens to your dog, you need to make a change to a harness.

Our agitation harness is not recommended as a tracking harness. It is too heavy for long tracks. This harness was designed with security and comfort for bite work, not tracking.


Leerburg leather products are works of art.

The cow hides used to make all of Leerburg's leather are hand selected for Leerburg before tanning. We need and use the thickest hides available. Our hides go through over 85 steps in a tanning process that takes over a month. There are many types of Latigo leather that are made in Mexico, India, or Pakistan, but none can compare to the quality of Leerburg’s Latigo leather.

Once tanned, our Leerburg Leather is delivered to the Amish family that crafts our leather products right here in Wisconsin. This family has been making all of our leather products for the past 20 years.

These 5 Amish craftsmen hand cut, sew, pop-rivet, and tailor all of our leather products. We have yet to come across another leather product that measures up to our products' quality.

In 2015, we switched from using brass or bronze hardware to stainless steel. Stainless Steel is stronger and lasts a lifetime. You can go and find a cheaper leather product somewhere else, but the quality will not measure up to our products.

100% of Leerburg leather products are made in Wisconsin. We don't use leather from India, Pakistan, or Mexico like 100% of our competitors use.

What is girth?

Girth is taken from the widest part of the dog's chest behind the forelegs.

A dog with a tape measure around its neck, behind the ears.


Our Amish leather products are made with American-made leather that is stained using natural oils and dyes. There is a possibility that some color may transfer from leather products. We recommend that you use discretion when using this product with lighter colored clothing.

Please keep in mind when ordering that all of our leather leashes are handmade. We try to be as exact as possible with the sizes and colors, but variances do occur.

By far the best agitation harness we have tried. It is so easy to clip on and I love the leather. Many other harnesses we have seen and tried have a bunch of straps flapping around or don't fit securely. The Leerburg harness has been a game changer in our IGP training.

A bit disappointing

Received our Protection harness today, and could not believe how beautiful it was! Everything from the quality/softness of the leather, heavy duty clips, to the expert craftsmanship was more than I had expected. My favorite part is the generous sizing on this harness. This will be a piece of our training equipment that will last far beyond the lifespan of our dog (s).

This is an amazing harness. It is worth every dollar I paid for it. The leather and craftsmanship is second to none... This harness will allow your dog to work longer and harder because of the design. Because of the two snaps/clips it is very easy to put on and take off. Time saver... WOW!! If you are thinking about this and concerned because of the price don't be. This is a harness if kept properly will last you a life time.

Why this Harness?
After thorough research of K9 multipurpose harnesses, I needed to ensure that specific characteristics were satisfied: Quality leather and hardware for durability, comfort, longevity, craftsmanship, versatility, and cost.
I chose the Padded Leather Agitation Harness which has the removable breast for the purpose of also tracking which is the primary for my K9.
After proper fit, my K9 Bud seems to have good flexibility as well as comfort...very happy K9. The harness was used extensively in different environmental terrains: Wet /Dry/rocky/swamp/wooded... and the harness is the best quality I have had. For Bud...the fit is great, which enhances comfort. Its a strong harness, build to last... I want to thank Leerburg, and the “Local craftsmen” who made a fine harness.

I have used this product (or one of it's predecessors) for ten years. My dogs (Jäger, Kriegerherz, and now Rin Tin Tin) have worn their harness from sunrise to sunset and then some. I have never had any complaint about any Leerburg product. I'm ordering my third harness since 2006 not due to shortcomings in the product, but an unattended teething puppy or upgrades that made the harness demonstrably improved. My dogs have served several functions as a handicapped service, therapy, and personal protection dogs concurrently.

Just received this harness. The quality is absolutely great. I have a 100 pounds GSD. It fits him perfectly. I love all leather products sold by Leerburg, including leather leash. Best products and best quality you can't find somewhere else.

Been training dogs for many years, seen all kinds of harnesses in my time. Have to say this is the nicest harnesses I have ever seen, the craftsmanship and quality with this one is top notch.. Very pleased with my purchase.. And you should see how proud my boy is to wear it, he just seemed to know it was his right out of the box.. O.K. maybe it showed a little, it is Christmas ya know. ;-)

This is an incredible harness. It is carefully crafted from the finest materials and the workmanship is unparalleled anywhere at any price. On top of that, it is so easy to put on and take off even the highest energy, fidgeting dog. Lastly, it is almost infinitely adjustable. The leather is better than anything I have ever seen. There is no question it will last a lifetime if you cared for.

I absolutely love this harness. I wanted a leather harness with a wide, padded chest, and this one was perfect! I have a big, strong dog that loves to pull on walks, and with this harness he doesn't choke himself to death. I also love that I can use the handle if I need to keep him close, for loading and unloading in and out of the car, etc. It's comfortable for him to wear and it's super easy to take on and off with the two snaps. I would buy another one of these if I were to ever get a second dog.

I have an 80 lb. Malinois who goes absolutely berserk when it's time for bite work. An agitation collar just isn't enough, so I invested in this harness.

The 2-snap configuration makes it very easy to put on and take off quickly. Even under the maximum strain my dog can put on it (i.e. frustration building with a decoy while connected to a static line) it distributes the force well enough to keep him from ever choking or gagging. It's also extremely adjustable. He first started wearing it when he was under 60 lbs. and I was able to make adjustments as he grew. Even at 80 lbs. there is plenty of room to expand. The leather is definitely high quality, and was built with excellent craftsmanship, and I have no doubt I will be training with this harness for years to come.
