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 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!
Halti Dog Harness
These harnesses are made for adventures in the great outdoors. If you have a strong dog, then this will be ideal as there are two lead clips for maximum control. They come in a variety of non-offensive colours too, which will compliment any fur colour!
Don’t forget the treats - keep your training treats on hand for outdoor rewards.

Tweed Dog Harnesses
Tweed harnesses are another great option for small-medium dogs, and one that is ideal for those who don’t like the look of an ordinary harness. Tweed dog harnesses have a stylish flair and looks more like a tailored waistcoat than a normal walking accessory.
