X-Back Harness - CUSTOM CRAFTED (HR001)

Our popular X-Back design is perfect for dog sledding, carting, scootering, bikejoring, and other pulling activities. CUSTOM MADE to your dog's measurements and your choice of colors plus free ID tag sewn on. Features premium Polar Fleece padding for maximum comfort and safety. Now available with RipStop Nylon Covered Fleece Padding!

Fully padded with black Polartec fleece along the chest, neck, and throughout the length of the rib cage, the X-Back harness allows your dog to efficiently and comfortably pull from the entire length of its body.

  • Our Ripstop Nylon Cover keeps hair, grass, etc. from sticking to the Polartec Fleece! PERFECT!
POLAR FLEECE - Our Polartec 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 less than 1% of its weight in water. Because it is breathable and covers only 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, it 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 dog harnesses.

Consider adding a Belly Band to your X-Back Harness:
  • A Belly Band helps prevent your dog from backing out of their harness, which is loose fitting by design when your dog is not pulling.
  • Helps give your dog confidence and calms them as it allows your dog to feel the harness run along the length of their body...similar to the calming effect a Thunder Shirt provides.
A Belly Band is made with lightweight webbing and lightweight snap. The adjustable Band will fit most X-Back Harnesses, The complete Belly Band runs underneath the dog and through both sides of the harness at the last rib. Fully adjustable, specific sizing is not necessary as the belly Band is NOT designed to extend around the complete girth section of the dog; it only extends across and under the dog's belly. 

When you add the removable Belly Band, convenient Belly Band tabs will be sewn on to your X-Back Harness, allowing you to simply slip the Belly Band through the tabs to put on or remove. To add Belly Band, see dropdown below.   

CUSTOM MADE to your dog's 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.
Really big dog? If your dog is over 90 pounds, has a neck of 28" or more, or a length of 36" or more, a nominal upcharge will apply for additional materials and labor (see dropdowns below).

The harness is made with a closed-chest design, however you have the option of specifying a split-chest design for wider chested dogs. Add reflective tape for night time running and a belly band to help prevent your dog from backing out of the harness.

PLEASE NOTE that our CUSTOM CRAFTED Harnesses can take several weeks to craft, depending on the time of the 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 do not want to or cannot wait that long, please consider our Ready-To-Go X-Back Harness (comes in 11 standard sizes), which is instock and ready for fast shipment!
