Replacement Leather Handle Information 

These leather handles are made from double layered 5/8″ wide leather. Made to measure in any height/length.

Information We’ll Need:

  1. We will need to know the harness style and saddle size you have. 
  2. The type of handle desired. Your harness must be able to accommodate the handle. If in doubt, contact us and we’re happy to help! Details can be found in the above PDF.
  3. Your dog’s width (width can affect the height of the finished handle).
  4. Tell us the handle HEIGHT you need (from top of saddle to handle grip) See photos, and find measuring suggestion on page 4 in the above PDF.
  5. Alternatively if you know what works best for your handle you may tell us the actual overall length of the handle you need from tip to tip (including snaps/buckles).
  6. We may ask for a photo of your harness so we can be sure to get all the details right for you! (We’ve made a few changes to hardware and assembly over the years.)

Balance Handle: for BAH

This leather handle is positioned vertically on the harness. It is stabilized to provide excellent feedback and communication with your dog. Previously called the “Stabilized Detachable Handle.” Mounts low on the harness saddle with quick-release buckles, and is kept upright with heavy-duty O-rings. Folds flat by unclipping the quick-release buckles and pivoting back. (A brace strap may be added to stabilize the handle loop, depending on the height of your handle, shown at right.) This flexible handle will soften and slump over time. Good for counterbalance, and light momentum while walking.

Available as a flexible handle made with two layers of soft yet sturdy leather, or semi-rigid which is reinforced for a firmer feel and increased feedback. A semi-rigid Balance Handle will hold its form and stand upright, making it accessible for grasping without bending over.

[BAH ONLY, harness must have 5/8” quick-release buckles]

Clip-on Balance Handle: for BAH

Minimal and low profile option clips onto O-rings toward the top of the harness saddle. Previously called the “Detachable Handle.” Handle lays down when you let go of it. Ideal for a short grab-handle (3-4”). Good for counterbalance, getting up from a seated position, or for occasional momentum assistance.

[BAH ONLY] Notes: Not recommended with Balance Handles.

Support Pull Handle: for BAH or MSH

Designed for heavier momentum and pulling needs. Attaches to lower D-rings with spring snaps. “Mouse ear” loops keep the handle in position at a slight angle back. Ideal for those who need moderate gait stabilization or a sturdy momentum-pull. Available as a flexible handle, or semi-rigid which is reinforced for a sturdier feel.

Available as a flexible handle made with two layers of soft yet sturdy leather, or semi-rigid which is reinforced for a firmer feel and increased feedback. A semi-rigid Balance Handle will hold its form and stand upright, making it accessible for grasping without bending over.

[Harness must have support D-rings located low on the harness saddle, mouse ears required] Notes: XL size harnesses must already have mouse ears. Standard size harnesses can be retrofit with mouse ears if needed. Not compatible with guide handles. Support Pull Handles 18” or longer require a custom sleeve to stabilize the handle at an additional cost.

Leather Guide Handle: for BAH or MSH

Leather Guide Handles are for light-duty leading/guiding. Attaches to the front edge of the harness, and angles back. Mounts to the front portion of the harness saddle with 5/8” quick-release buckles and is stabilized with Velcro on the accessory D-rings. Available as a flexible handle, or semi-rigid which is reinforced for a sturdier feel.

[This handle can be retrofit onto most harnesses. Guide handle mounts can be added if needed.] Notes: Not compatible with Support Pull handles (redundant and awkward). Not compatible with MSH’s with Pull-Rings (may break the pull-rings).
