In addition to a slender body, sighthounds also have a quite deep chest, which means that they can easily slip from a normal harness. Harness, created just for them, has extended last part and one extra tape that fastenes on the narrowest part where the rib cage ends. Such model is considered very safe, because sighthound can not escape from it.
Basic sighthound harness is made of a number of straps that are fully wrapped in soft and lightweight softshell. Two straps, that embrace the chest, are adjustable and are closing with strong plastic buckles. Straps along the neck are also adjustable in length. The back strap is equipped with two rings to snap the leash.
The Basic harness does not hinder the dog’s movement and does not cross over any joint, therefore this model is among the most recommended.
Softshell is a soft and somehow stiff material with a slightly cushioned feel. It’s durable, water repelent and easy to maintain but it’s not UV stable so colors can fade.
We can make a harness for sighthounds with at least 8-10 kg weight.
It is also possible to order buckle closures on both sides of the harness, additional charges are 12 EUR.
Link to the comparison and more info on both of our harness models (Basic and Comfort).
Straps of the Comfort harness can be made in two different widths:
- 2,5 cm
- 3,3 cm (shown on the photos)
Every Basic sighthound harness is made individualy to fit your sighthound, so you need to measure him before ordering. Ask your dog to stand in a relaxed and upright manner while taking measurement and do not hurry. If you’re having troubles measuring your hound, take more measurements (at least 3) and then take the average.
When ordering a Basic harness, please include:
- harness type: Basic harness
