Made in Hungary by a company specializing in high-end Schutzhund products, the Power Harness is Julius K-9's original and most popular harness. It is a high-quality, rugged harness that was originally designed for professional use with European search & rescue, military, and police dogs. The profile of the Power Harness is parallel to the ground wherease the IDC Harness has an angular profile. The smallest size of the IDC Harness will fit smaller dogs than the smallest size of the Power Harness.
The Power Harness is so easy to take on and off the dog that it can be used for taking your dog into the agility ring; just drop the harness over the dog's head and click in the buckle on the belly band. The harness is designed to allow a full range of motion so your dog can walk or run while wearing it.
The surface of the Power Harness is made from rugged, scratch-proof, and water-resistant polyester, which makes it an ideal harness for dogs that run in their harness when you're hiking in thickly wooded/shrubbed areas. The underside of the harness is padded with Öko-Tex, a breathable cotton that is gentle on the dog's coat and skin.
The chest and belly straps are made from pressure-tested seatbelt-type webbing and are infinitely adjustable, allowing you to achieve a perfect fit on any dog. The chest belt on sizes 0-3 has a reflective strip stitched on for night-time visibility, while the chest belt for sizes Mini, Mini Mini, Baby 1, and Baby 2 has reflective stitching. All sizes of harnesses have reflective edging.
The back of the harness features an INOX® steel ring for attaching your leash. Except for the Baby 1 and Baby 2 sizes, this harness also has a handle that enables you to lift or hold your dog when necessary. For safety, the handle fastens down on the harness with Velcro when it's not in use.
The harness has a reflective label "patch" on each side that is attached with Velcro. The ones that come with the Power Harness say "Julius-K9," but additional labels with different words and phrases can be purchased separately. There is also a sleeve for mounting a flashlight on harness sizes 0-3.
The Julius K-9 Power Harness comes in 8 sizes. Click on the Sizing tab on the left for information on how to measure your dog and choose a harness size. There are photos of each size group. These photos are not to scale, but rather are intended to illustrate the design differences in the four size groups: 1-3, 0, Mini, and Baby.
