This beautiful dual-connection or two-point harness allows for leash connection from the FRONT or BACK of your dog’s body. The front connection on the dog’s chest discourages pulling by gently re-directing the dog’s movement back around toward you. The back connection, at the top of the shoulders, is great for slowing/controlling your dog’s body position or restraining if needed. Or use both points together with a double ended leash!
This body harness does not restrain the dog’s head or face. There is no pressure on the dog’s throat, eliminating choking & neck strain. The Y-shaped breast collar does not restrict the dog’s shoulder blades; allows full range of movement, and minimizes shoulder strain. Brahma material doesn’t damage fur like nylon straps can. Harness comes with a FREE sheepskin pad for the top. Optional sheepskin padding for chest straps available separately for extra comfort if desired.
The Connected Control™ Harness is super easy to put on and take off with two durable metal Quick-Release buckles. Excellent for those with limited strength or dexterity. (Our buckles are much easier to operate than cheap plastic ones.)
This harness has 5 adjustment points to assure a perfect fit for your dog’s individual body! Adjustments can be made around the shoulders, girth/chest, and between the front legs. Initial fit adjustments can take a little time, but once it’s fit to your dog properly, the harness is very easy to use. No need to fuss with cumbersome buckles every time you use the harness thanks to our convenient metal Quick-Release buckles.
This is a very sturdy harness, made with 1″ wide straps and heavy duty hardware.
Please measure your dog’s girth: behind the front legs around the deepest part of the chest. We recommend using a fabric measuring tape or a piece of string; measure 3 times for accuracy. Always measure before ordering to ensure a proper fit! Weight and breeds are listed for reference, but do not replace the importance of measuring.
NOT recommended for smaller dogs due to the weight of the materials and hardware. Best for big, burly, sturdy dogs that are NOT overly body-sensitive.

If your dog is between sizes, size down. If your dog is young and growing, consider selecting one size larger than his current measurement. Please realize that a harness that fits a 4 month old puppy will probably not adjust large enough for when he’s full grown. This harness is wide and heavy.

Fantastic for BLIND or DEAF dogs! Because this harness facilitates communication and directional cues, it’s perfect for special needs dogs that require some guidance. In fact, this harness was developed with and first tested on the owner’s blind dog Cora.
Cora lost her vision at 9 years old and struggled to walk on a leash because she couldn’t figure out where or how fast her person was going! She weaved, alternated between plowing ahead and lagging behind, and ran into objects on her daily walk which caused confusion. In her new harness, Cora immediately appreciated the close-contact and communication that the two attachment points provided, and walks smoothly and easily now. It is easy to direct and guide her with very light pressure, almost like reins on a horse. Slight tension is kept on both ends of the leash which allows her to feel exactly where her human is, and what direction to go. I would recommend this for dogs that are blind, deaf, or that have other neurological or behavioral issues that would benefit from improved contact and cues from their handler. –Katrina Boldry
