HARNESSES AND LEADS

Harness

Wearing an ergonomic harness is essential for the comfort and well-being of our dogs. We recommend Haqihana harnesses as they are almost fully adjustable and respect the sensitive areas (throat, armpits and shoulder blades) of the dog.

Size: Measure your dog’s rib cage, place the tape measure behind the armpits at about 3 cm for small dogs (e.g. Westie, Cocker Spaniel), 4 cm for medium dogs (e.g. Golden Retriever, Border Collie), 5 cm for large dogs (e.g. Leonberger, Great Dane). If the measurement obtained is between two sizes, choose the larger size.
Circumference measurement in cm:
– between 90 and 130 cm = XL
– between 70 and 100 cm = L
– between 60 and 80 cm = M
– between 50 and 70 cm = S
– between 40 and 55 cm = XS
– between 33 and 45 cm = XXS

Growing harnesses

In partnership with ANIMAL&Nous, we offer you a ” growing harness ” option. We lend you a harness adapted to the size of your puppy, while he is growing until his physical maturity.

You pay 45 euros to the ASBL, when you borrow the first harness. No extra charge is asked for. When your dog reaches his definitive size, you return the last harness you borrowed to us and you can choose a new harness from ANIMAL&Nous.

ANIMAL&Nous is located rue Hubert Bastin 7 in 6040 Jumet. You can also make your choice remotely and come and collect your harness during lessons.
