Ruffwear Switchbak Dog Harness 4.5

Just as we might be swapping out our thick winter coats for lighter spring jackets right now so too can our four-legged friends, no I’m not talking about cats leaving half their fur in your dinner, this is one for the doggy pals. The Switchbak Dog Harness is a lightweight harness available in three colours, Red Sumac, Granite Gray and Blue Moon and comes in sizes extra small through to Large/Extra Large, the handy size guide on the website helps you get the perfect fit for your pooch. The Switchbak Harness is lightly padded in the right places for a comfortable and secure fit during walks, there are two low low-profile zippered pockets that can be used to store necessities like poo bags, a leash, or some treats. This might save the embarrassment of pulling out a handful of poo bags or dog treats from your pocket when you go to grab your wallet in the pub. The Switchbak offers two leash attachment options, the V-Ring is centred on the back of the harness, there is also a reinforced webbing loop at the chest, this can be used to redirect and control dogs that pull on leash.

The durable 300 denier polyester ripstop (Bluesign approved) material is robust enough to withstand being ran through bushes, brushed against trees and rolled about in on rough terrain and questionable dirty spots. The perfect fit can be attained thanks to the adjustable padded tummy strap, not only does this keep the harness snug to the dog’s body but also ensures stability whilst pup is carrying their belongings, this can also be stowed away when not in use. There is a low-profile padded handle that can be used to quickly have close control over the dog, for when a rogue squirrel becomes just too tempting a chase, this can also be used to help lift and assist your furry friend over trickier obstacles. There are reflective details on the harness which will flash up when car lights or torches shine on them, helping your dog to become more visible in low light. For added visibility check out The Beacon light, sold separately by Ruffwear (there is even a dedicated attachment point on the harness). The Switchbak Dog Harness is a comfortable lightweight harness, suitable for most daily walks. RRP £69.95
