We are happy to announce that the harness has now been trialed in all breeds to perform well for other all breeds of dog. Please Read the sizing distinction further down the page in order to select the appropriate shape in the drop down menu when you order. 

The harness was originally designed and tested with deep chested dogs such as greyhounds, lurchers, whippets and italian greyhounds. 


Running with your dog


Strong and safety features - the escape proof harness

Dogsnug Running Harness in Blue

The harness is designed for pull distribution. It’s safety is not compromised when your dog pulls whilst preventing injuries in your dog’s neck and body. The shape has been designed to narrow as it reaches the waist, which prevents your dog from wriggling out of this harness. It is not an anti pulling dog harness, but it will help protect you and your dog from injuries.

The product is fitted with strong webbing and solid brass d-rings at the attachment points for safety. The top part has a 50mm wide reflective tape to make your dog visible to cars.


Comfortable and soft - the perfect fit harness

Dogsnug running harness in white

Our soft dog harness stands out in how comfortable it is for the dog. There are many types of harnesses in the market, but they tend to be hard and stiff. Our soft quality harness ensures that your dog has free range of motion as it runs, plays or sits in the car. The contact points have been designed to stay clear of areas that produce movement in our dogs, preventing chafing and getting in the way of their impeccable movement. We find these to be the best dog harnesses for running.


Step In Dog Harness

The harness is very easy to put on a dog, just step your dog in. The harness is fastened around the body with baby velcro, a strong but non abrasive velcro that makes very little noise and does not pull on your dog’s fur.


How to Put on a Dog Harness

  1. Step in
  2. Fasten the velcro
  3. Clip the plastic cam & thread your lead fitting through both D-rings

Best Cooling Dog Harness

This is by far the most breathable dog harness in our range. The mesh fabric allows for air to circulate around your dog even when the cooling material is not activated, preventing the harness from overheating your dog if you forget to activate it.

It is the ideal stay cool dog harness: fitted with an internal cooling material capable of retaining coolness for up to 5 hrs when activated. Works by evaporation so all you need to do is wet before you leave or on the go with your water bottle.

  1. Pour water
  2. Squeeze out excess
  3. Top up as necessary

Please be mindful of your dog’s wellbeing. It is advisable to walk with them during the coolest part of the day in the summer. Always test the ground to make sure that it is not hot to the touch, bring a bottle of water with you. Never leave your dog alone in a car on warm days.

Not escape proof!

I love this harness and it looks really comfortable, but the waist stretches enough for my lurcher to escape from it easily (see photo). It seems to be the right size as it was a bit too tight when I bought it. My dog is very happy wearing it and it doesn't slide from side to side unlike his other harnesses. I'm using it in the countryside away from livestock and roads, but with a back-up lead to his collar. It's perfect for when he goes out with his dog walker as they drive him to a secure field to run around, or when I'm visiting friends/family and want to leave his GPS tracker on to be on the safe side. I wouldn't recommend it for nervous dogs, dogs with a high prey drive, or any dog that is a flight risk.

Lovely and snug 😊

I'm really happy with the harness I bought for our lurcher Luke. The customer service was excellent and Ali asked me to send on more detailed measurements of Luke so that the harness could be made to measure. I would highly recommend Dogsnug as I felt comfortable buying from their website and the harness is excellent quality.

Harness for Whippet

The harness is great ans Pancake Loves it! It fits him perfectly (especially over his big chest) and looks extremely cute:) he acts as if he’s not wearing anything so presumably is very comfortable and has been really good at keeping him cool in the hot weather. I haven’t tried running with him in it yet but on walks it’s been really good at making sure he doesn’t pull and even if he does it doesn’t injure him. Thank you so much Ali and Kai!

Fantastic - what every running whippet needs!

We have had a couple of runs using the harness and it is fabulous. The fit is perfect and my young energetic whippet has complete freedom of movement. It is a snug fit but after a 7.5 km run there were no marks on her when I took it off. The harness did not move, slip, or open at all, including when she bolted after a squirrel and yanked the lead. The colour is great -- we chose the pink -- as I am a big fan of hi-vis that allows me to see her when she is off-lead and exploring. It is also easy to wash (already tested after a roll in fresh sheep poo). She seems to like it as it keeps her cool and is very light and comfortable; we will use it for more than just runs. P.S. She also loves her yellow cooling bandana. Great products.
