About our padded dog harnesses:

Dog harnesses can be a great alternative to attaching a leash to a regular collar on walks, runs, or bike rides. This is especially true for dogs that are big-time pullers. Constant pulling can put too much tension on the neck area of your dog and over time can even lead to injury. This is not just a problem for big dogs, but also medium and small dogs as well. If you decide to try a harness for your dog it important to find a one that is comfortable for them and won't hinder their mobility.

A major complaint that we hear from people that have used standard dog harnesses that can be bought from the chain stores is that they cause rubbing and chaffing on the chest area, armpit area, or belly of their dog. This is why padded dog harnesses were created. A good padded dog harness will distribute your dog's pulling across the body and will be comfortable for them to wear. I have done my best to find the best padded dog harnesses out there - ones that include padding on the chest and padding on the strap area.

The padded harnesses above have padding in key areas that are likely to rub your dog. One area that tends to be a problem with rubbing for many dogs is the armpit area just behind the legs. While this can be an issue with sizing, it is often because the straps of most dog harnesses do not have padding on the strap that goes behind the front legs. This causes rubbing and chafing and can obviously be irritating for your dog.

Most of the harnesses we carry have padding built-in, but we also offer comfortable fleece harness strap covers made from the softest polar fleece available. These add comfort to any dog harness and come in a range of sizes for small, medium or large dogs. Of all the harnesses we carry, the RuffWear webmaster harness and the ComfortFlex Sport harness have some of the best padding and feedback from customers over time. Padding is on the chest area and padding on the belly straps. The EzyDog harness has a unique design made to conform to your dog's chest with comfortable padded material. The entire chest area has a specialized rubber foam padding. The ComfortFlex is unique in that the entire harness has light padding on it. It is the fastest harness to get on and off your dog. Please email us if you have any questions about which padded dog harness would be best for your specific dog.
