Urban Trail Harness (Half/Shorty) - CUSTOM CRAFTED (HR006)

The ORIGINAL...copied by many, equaled by none. Our versatile Urban Trail Half Harness (aka Half, Shorty or Shoulder Harness) is perfect for use in a variety of dog activities in addition to mushing, such as scootering, bikejoring, roller blading, canicross, skijoring, tracking, and hiking. This harness extends only part way down the back to accommodate the steeper pull angle associated with biking and scootering. For mushing, just add 14" Harness Tug Extender (GL030) in order to adapt length for your tug lines (see dropdown below).

Veterinarian Recommended (see Dog World Magazine article posted through our website). 
  • Pulling pressure is on dog's chest, not neck and shoulder, and because it reaches half way down the back, it eliminates downward pressure a standard harness puts on dog's hindquarters.
  • Rotates freely around dog's torso, thereby helping to reduce "crabbing".
  • Good for big dogs
  • Great for senior dogs, easy on the hips.
Fully padded and conforms to your dog's torso even when not pulling, this harness works equally well for walks around the neighborhood.

Tough, durable, corrosion resistant, nickel-plated, welded steel D-Ring for line/leash attachment comes standard on the top of harness. Extra side D-Rings are optional for use with bicycle dog exercise attachments such as the Cycleash, Walky Dog or Springer, or a Front D-Ring for training or additional control and to discourage hard pulling can be added. Add reflective tape for night time visibility.

Optional premium upgrade to Stainless Steel Rings (standard D-Ring for leash at back, optional side D-Rings, and optional front D-Ring) is available, for maximum protection from the environment, including saltwater.

POLAR FLEECE - Our Polartec Polar Fleece is the premium quality fleece, providing maximum padding for your dog's comfort and safety. Polar Fleece is extremely lightweight and durable, and is machine washable. Contrary to appearance and perception, Polar Fleece does not readily absorb moisture; due to its hydrophobic nature, it only retains 1% of its weight in water. Because it is very breathable and covers such a small surface area of your dog, it is temperature neutral. It is mostly made from recycled materials, including plastic bottles, and despite its fuzzy appearance, is not flammable, but instead melts when exposed to flame. Although Polar Fleece is more expensive than other padding materials, we believe that it is ideally suited for high quality harnesses.

Now featuring "Big Dog" Wienerlock® Buckles! Side release, curved, high-impact, big beefy bruisers designed to handle hefty loads. U.S. military grade and made in the USA.

CUSTOM CRAFTED to your dog's specific measurements with your choice of colors, we can also sew on a FREE ID tag with either your dog's name OR phone number (maximum of 12 spaces). Please specify your dog's ID tag information, weight range, breed, and harness measurements in the text box below. The breed and weight information helps us verify your harness measurements.


NOTE: If you want a little bit of flexibility with the harness size, choose the adjustable Urban Trail Harness (HR008) instead, which allows you some adjustment around the torso as well as around the neck.

PLEASE NOTE that our CUSTOM CRAFTED Harnesses can take several weeks to make, depending on the time of year (4 - 6 weeks during off-season and 6 - 10 weeks during season). In most cases you will receive your harness in the middle of that range, but it may take as long as the outside of that range. Although they are worth the wait, if you cannot or do not want to wait that long, please consider our READY-TO-GO Adjustable Urban Trail Harness, HR008-RTG (available in 4 sizes), which is instock and ready for fast shipment!
