How To Choose A Comfortable Dog Harness For Walks

Jupe’s Treats features affordable and functional products you can purchase from Amazon, often with free shipping. We bring pet-shop-like curation to the Internet’s most extensive catalog for dogs.

Large Breed Dog Harness

When choosing a dog harness for walking, consider the following factors:

  1. Comfort: Look for a harness that is padded and does not chafe or rub against your dog’s skin.
  2. Size and fit: Make sure you choose the right size for your dog and adjust the straps for a secure and snug fit.
  3. Control: Choose a harness that provides good control over your dog’s movements, especially if you have a strong or energetic dog.
  4. Style: Consider the style of harness that works best for your dog, such as a front-clip harness for better control, a back-clip harness for everyday walking, or a no-pull harness for dogs that tend to pull.
  5. Durability: Look for a harness that is made of strong and durable materials, so it will last a long time and not break easily.
  6. Ease of use: Look for a harness that is easy to put on and take off, as well as adjust.
  7. Safety: Make sure the harness you choose has reflective strips or other safety features to keep your dog visible and safe during walks in low-light conditions.

These top-rated dog harnesses are easy to adjust for different dog sizes and can make walks and other adventures with your dog easy to manage. All the while providing comfort and security and fashion for your pet.

No doubt you have tried different brands of harnesses to no avail. It’s like, try one and see if it works, try another, repeat.  Good for the pet store owner but not so much for you. Case in point: a no-pull harness with a front clip works great for walking a small to medium-sized dog. Sounds good, right? Wait, a small dog would benefit more from a vest-style harness.

Types of Dog Harnesses

How do you choose? First, there are only 3 main types of harnesses.

  1. Front Clip (No Pull) Harness
  2. Back Clip Harness
  3. Surprise! Dual Clip Dog Harness

Front Clip Dog Harness

These harnesses have both front & back clips, providing versatility for dogs and people whose needs change over time. See how comfortable this dog looks in the “vest-style” dual-clip harness.  This harness is my no-fuss recommendation!

Kurgo Tru-Fit Smart Harness

A “Nesting Buckle System” design, based on the engineering for harnesses used by rock climbers and linesmen, ensure strength and safety. There are five adjustment points, so while a bit confusing for me, actually made it possible to fit nearly any dog, regardless of size or weight.

Kurgo Tru-Fit Smart Harness is the perfect solution. This one wins in my opinion! More info.


Take your furry friend on an adventure! Ideal for running, hiking, and walking. This may not be your favorite but no worries because there are lots more to choose from. Here I have provided a summary of different types of harnesses.
