Our Search and Rescue harness is made from thick 2” wide webbing. Highly visible blaze orange web and reflective tape cover both sides of the harness to provide optimal visibility during day and night time hours. This harness is lightweight with a two inch side release buckle and adjusting slide. The chest strap is padded for the dog's comfort. On top is a heavy welded D-ring to attach the lead or tracking line.



What is girth?

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

Bought this product?

We first ordered the medium vest because our GSD was 2" less than the maximum girth suggested but when it arrived it was so tight we couldn't secure it. We exchanged it for a large vest with no problems.

We love this vest!! It is so lightweight yet made so well. The lettering on the velcro patches are bright and visible at least 10' away. I clip my lead on the D-ring closest to his neck and I clip his ID and the house keys on either side D-ring. The dog is strong and pulls a lot and the D-ring holds. I have also had to use the handle to pull the dog away from something that smelled wonderful to him and having the handle located closer to the end of the vest was very convenient to reach. We purchased it in January but anticipate it will be fine during the summer because it is so lightweight. Once the vest is adjusted front and back, to remove it just unclip the one clip and the dog can either back out of it or you can lift it off over its head. Mud splatters from the snow thaws clean up with a wipe of a cloth. Finally, we also own the medium weighted vest and this vest fits easily over it - we just adjust the strap.

I have used this harness for years with my bloodhounds for search and rescue. LOVE this harness: Easy to put on easy to take off, comfortable and non-restricting especially around the neck where it falls lower on the chest then most harnesses that I have used, tough/durable/strong and easy to clean unlike leather. I would not use any other harness - Finally a harness built for a bloodhound! Highly recommend!!!

I use this harness with my Golden daily for SAR training. The fleece padding in the front prevents the chest strap from rubbing and breaking the fur on his chest like other harnesses have.

The dog in the picture thanks you for the K9 vest and training book that just arrived 2 days a go (incredibly fast...). We intend to order another 12 similar equipment and a book. Hopefully, we may be interested in other products.

Greetings from Romania.

This has got to be the best I have ever purchased, even the dog likes it better than the Leather Tracking Harness with the chest pad. Fits like a glove and the side protection is excellent. It will be easy to sew the patches on the sides as they arrived. Just wanted to let you know that this is the one to buy. For those that do not want the handle it will come off easy, and you still have a way to grab the dog with out choking them. Which I did as the handle would get caught in brush. It would if in a bright color make an outstanding SAR vest for dogs, but I have a way to make it happen. One great feature is how quick you can get it fasten on the dog, as most dogs are wanting to get going, and the leather harness took to much time when it is cold and trying to buckle it on with gloves on.

So thanks for the sales.
