Product description, features & benefits:
Our popular signature X-Back Harness design is perfect for dog sledding, carting, scootering, bikejoring, and other pulling activities. CUSTOM FIT means that each Harness is cut & sewn to order for your dog's specific measurements and specifications. Available in a wide choice of colors. A complimentary ID tag is sewn on if you'd like. Other Options are listed below.
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 his body (more info about Polatec Fleece at bottom of page). Optional lightweight nylon pack cloth covering is available, to retain all the benefits of the fleece padding, without the hair, burrs, and debris that sticks to it!
The fit of a CUSTOM FIT Harness will only be as good as the measurements taken and provided to our seamstresses!
If you have any questions or require assistance, please do not hesitate to email or call us and we will walk you through the measurement process!
Please make sure your phone # is included in your customer profile and check your email (including spam) in the event we have questions regarding your dog's meaurements. Thank you!
OPTIONAL PRODUCT UPGRADES
Lightweight Nylon Packcloth: Soft, strong, and lightweight black nylon covering over the fleece padding provides all the benefits of the fleece, plus hair, burrs, and debris won't stick to it.
Belly Band: Made with lightweight webbing and a lightweight snap. Our adjustable belly band will fit on most x-back harnesses.
- Helps prevent your dog from backing out of the harness as the x-back harness 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 complete length of the body...similar to the calming effect a Thunder Shirt provides.
- The belly band is designed to run underneath the dog and through both sides of the harness at the last rib. Fully adjustable, specific sizing is not necessary - the band is NOT intended to wrap around the complete girth section of the dog.
Reflective Bands: 3M Reflective Tape is added to the custom harness in four places for maximum nighttime visibility.
Split-Chest Design: Unique chest design for very wide-chested dogs such as St Bernards or Newfoundlands. The wider chest allows for the harness to sit more squarely on these big, wide-chested dogs.
Add Embroidered ID: Either your dog's name or phone number (maximum of 12 spaces) added to the harness for FREE.
What happens if a completed and received harness does not fit right? For Custom Fit Harnesses, if it is a mistake that we made, i.e. we cut it short or long vs. the measurements provided to us, then of course we will make you a new one free of charge and expedite it to you. If it is a measurement error or your part, then for one time only for each specific dog, we will make a new one for you at half price plus shipping.
Regarding Lead Time for CUSTOM FIT Harnesses: Production times will vary in and out of season due to demand. Delivery times vary becasue orders come in unevenly, 60 harnesses one week and 150 the next. There are a limited number of custom harness sewers available; however, we do have several and we have the best! For our CUSTOM FIT Harnesses, depending on the time of the year, the lead time is 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. CAN'T WAIT for a Custom Fit Harness? Although they are worth the wait, if you do not want to or cannot wait, please consider our Ready-To-Go X-Back Harness . It is constructed using the exact same signature design as our Custom X-Back, and comes in 11 standard sizes and are in-stock and ready for fast shipment!
