The bottcher harness was first used back in the 1920's and 1930's. I first saw it mentioned in Konrad Most's book on training service dogs which was written in that time period. This is a very effective harness to use to train dogs to keep their nose down on the ground.

The loop of the harness goes around the dogs haunches, with the lower line runs under the belly, and is clipped to the collar on the neck. The concept of the bottcher system is that a tracking line attached under the belly of the dog and as the dog pulls, the harness actually pulls the dogs head to the ground.

The beauty of the bottcher harness is it's simplicity. Our harness is made of top quality leather with the best quality stainless steel snaps. Fits dogs with 22” to 37” girth.
