We stock and recommend the Haqihana harnesses endorsed by Norwegian Dog Trainer Turid Rugaas.

Haqihana have designed a ‘non-inhibitive’ harness which is easy to put on, comfortable for the dog, and doesn’t restrict their movement.  The perfect fit with well-proportioned and fully adjustable dimensions together with the quality of the materials used ensure your dog will be comfortable wearing something that does not irritate and is not painful in any situation.

The high quality materials, all produced in Europe, satisfy non-toxic, anallergic and recyclable requirements, and enable a 5-year manufacturer’s guarantee.

Design, together with well-proportioned dimensions and the positioning of the harness on the dog guarantee maximum comfort in all situations. Pressure is properly distributed on the dog’s sternum and thorax only, even when the dog is pulling, jerking or being restrained. The harness does not cause pain, sense of restriction, inhibition of breathing, friction or injury to the skin, and does not limit movement or create other discomfort.

The two buckles and their position make putting on and removing the harness trouble-free for dog and owner.

The Italian made webbing is made of high tenacity nylon (polyamide) which is well-known for its softness, optimal strength-to-weight ratio, abrasion resistance, and stability.

All parts are sewn together with secure stitching, and the overlapping parts, which have contact with the skin, are finished with a special stitching to avoid any rubbing, particularly in the shorthaired dog. The buckles and adjusters are made of acetal resin which maintains long-lasting mechanical and shock resistance even in extreme conditions. The plastic parts are rounded off and have no sharp edges in order to ensure the dog’s comfort. All metal components are made from stainless steel which does not release nickel or cause allergic reactions.

The carefully studied sizes and the five point regulation guarantees optimal wearability and adaptability of the harness for all dog sizes and shapes.

International scientific literature inspired Haqihana to design a substitute to the collar, which is a painful source of physical and psychological problems for the dog.  A harness and long leash is the preferred walking equipment for all dogs.  For more information on why we recommend walking your dog on a harness, and NOT a collar, please read this.

Note that the design and quality of the harness is important for your dog’s comfort.  There are MANY poorly-designed harnesses out there which continue to place pressure on the sensitive structures of the neck or across the shoulders, or use excess or poor quality materials that rub on the skin.  Choose a harness, but choose HAQIHANA!
