The Best Dog Harnesses & Walking Accessories

14.03.21

With Spring well under way and UK Lockdown restrictions slowly beginning to relax, we’re looking forward to getting out and about more. Whether it’s a trip to the seaside; a ramble in the countryside; or a stroll around town, we love exploring the great outdoors with our four-legged friends.

 

One of our favourite walking accessories is the dog harness. They offer much more support and comfort than attaching a lead to a collar. They’re brilliant for all breeds, but especially training puppies and flat nosed breeds who may find it difficult to breathe when walking on just a collar and lead. Here we take a look at some of our favourite harnesses and also share some of the best matching accessories to complete the look.

Our Favourite Dog Harnesses and their Matching Accessories

Ruffwear Hi & Light & Front Range Dog Harnesses

These are our favourite harnesses for lead training and so much more. The Hi & Light is ideal for puppies as well as tiny and small breeds such as Chihuahuas and Toy Poodles. It comes in XXS sizes and is an ideal fit for smaller bodies. It is made of a hardy material that will stand up to wear and tear, whilst looking great in a series of stylish colours. The Front Range is a brilliant choice for dogs as a second harness once they have grown out of their first puppy harness. The Ruffwear products are made to last, with premium fabrics and fastenings. They are great for outdoorsy dogs as they're robust enough to withstand lengthy adventures, but also offer the comfort and support that training puppies need.

Don’t forget to choose the matching collar and lead to complete the set. And remember to clip a poo bag holder to your lead too so you can clean up any mess. The cream Pocket poo bag holder by Beco will keep the set sleek and sophisticated!

Hurtta Weekend Warrior Dog Harness

This harness is made for adventures in the great outdoors. If you have a strong dog, then this will be ideal as it’s made from a really tough fabric and is designed to distribute pressure around the body when your dog pulls. It comes in this rather jazzy printed fabric too, which will make your dog stand out from the crowd!

Hurtta Weekend Warrior Dog Harness

The matching Weekend Warrior Rope Lead will add the perfect finishing touch to your walking set. If you need a coat for your walk, take a look at the Hurtta styles. And don’t forget treats either. This Kurgo Kibble Carrier has a handy carabiner so you can clip it to your belt, bag or dog lead handle and it’ll keep your training treats on hand for outdoor rewards.

Mutts & Hounds Tweed Dog Harness

This is another great harness for small-medium dogs, and one that is ideal for those who don’t like the look of an ordinary harness. This tweed dog harness has a stylish flair and looks more like a tailored waistcoat than a normal walking accessory. It comes in a a subtle shade of grey with pom-pom trim or a gorgeous macaroon check in shades of pale seafoam green and pink.

Hugo & Hudson Tweed Dog Harness in Dark Green

We love this dog harness for its classic good looks. Where the Mutts & Hounds tweed has a contemporary charm, this one is more classic country sports. If you love a good walk through the countryside in your Dubarry boots and Barbour jacket, your dog will look just the part in this H&H tweed harness.

Complete the look with the matching tweed collar and lead. If it’s a chilly day why not dress your pup in a wax jacket too with the Mutts & Hounds Waxed Cotton Dog Coat. They’ll look fabulous on their woodland walks!
