The Balance Harness is designed so that it can be adjusted along every axis so that you can fit any size or shape of dog. With six adjustment points, this non-restrictive harness offers a customized fit for comfort and complete freedom of movement, and it provides you with multiple leash attachment options. This harness is so adjustable that you can even adjust the top (colored) strap and the bottom (chest) strap to move the girth strap to exactly where you want it on your dog's rib cage so that it does not push against your dog's armpits.
The unique design of the Balance Harness offers a number of benefits:
- Allows you to adjust every strap so that even dogs that have had rubbing and chaffing problems from other harnesses can comfortably wear the Balance Harness.
- Allows for comfort and total freedom of movement so that your dog can move naturally and properly
- Allows you to attach a leash to the front chest ring, the back ring, or both rings for complete control of your dog
Made in the USA, the Balance Harness is made with high-quality soft and sturdy webbing; please note that all of the webbing on the harness is black, except for the top strap which comes in different colors. The only exception is the orange harness which does feature orange straps.
What size harness does your dog need? Click on the Sizing tab above for instructions on how to measure your dog and choose the appropriate size.
How to Measure Your Dog: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure from at least 2" behind your dog's elbows all the way around his girth. Select one of the sizes below based on that measurement.
When trying the harness on your dog for the first time, adjust the buckles and lengths of the various straps according to the Balance Harness Fitting Guide. The harness should not block any movement! After adjusting the harness according to the instructions, make sure your dog can fully extend his shoulders (front legs reaching forward) and has normal shoulder abduction (front legs moving out to the side).

"I have been looking for a non-restrictive harness that could be modified to fit any dog of any size or shape and am delighted that I have found it in the Balance Harness. This harness can be adjusted along every axis (6 different ways) and has rings to clip a leash at the chest or back. This is the ultimate harness, fully adjustable, and well made." —Chris Zink DVM, PhD, DACVSMR, CVSMT, CAC
"The Balance Harness is my favorite way to attach a leash to a dog. Over 20 years of training dogs and coaching clients, my preference has evolved from head halters to front-attachment harnesses to near universal use of the Balance Harness. It's not only super-comfortable for all shapes and sizes of dogs, it's ideal for helping people walk comfortably and safely with their four-legged friends. When I first saw the Balance Harness, I was skeptical that it would give me enough leverage and control. But after extensive trials using it with my own dogs, I now can't imagine not having a Balance Harness on the hook next to my dog Smudge's leash and many more Balance Harnesses in my gear bag, ready to fit onto my clients' dogs." —Kathy Sdao, MA, ACAAB - Bright Spot Dog Training
"The well-designed Balance Harness meets all these criteria effortlessly. It earns our overall best no-pull harness award not just because of the experience myself and my colleagues have had with the harness on a wide variety of dog shapes and sizes, but because "there's a consensus among experts, including those at Whole Dog Journal, that it is at the top of the no-pull harness pack." —Business Insider
Great Harness for multiple body types
Currently I train/compete with a Norfolk Terrier and have a 1 year old Miniature Poodle puppy. The Norfolk is big chested for a small dog and the Poodle is small and still growing.
I have owned many harnesses: Hurtta, Julius, Comfortflex, all have their pros and cons depending on what you plan to use them for.
I watched the video from CR website and exactly as they said not a cool /fancy looking harness but very adjustable for any dog body!
I love these because my boys can wear them for walks, agility training, tracking etc. and I don't have to worry about their movement being restricted.
Quality is excellent so far!
I like D ring in back and front!
