The Front Range Harness by Ruffwear is our most popular selling product!  It's a secure, durable dog harness that is great for everyday use or can be used as a training harness as it has both back and front chest lead attachment points.  Easy to put on, it has great 4-way adjustability to fit most breeds.   Available in 6 new fun colours, your dog will look fabulous in it as well!    Better still - pair it up with a matching Front Range Leash and / or Front Range Collar!

Training your dog not to pull?  How the Front Range Harness can help

The Front Range Harness has a reinforced webbing lead attachment point on the chest that can be used alongside proper training techniques (e.g., voice and reward training techniques) to help deter pulling. The idea behind this is that if a dog pulls too hard when the lead is attached to the chest, it will pull them around towards you (like reins on a horse).  Hence, your dog may learn that pulling does not get them where they want to be. Ruffwear have a great article that goes into this in further detail - Exploring Politely On-Leash

Other Key Features

  • Two dog leash attachment points - one on the back and another on the chest - A strong alumimium V-ring centered on the back is great for everyday walks.  A front leash attachment point made from engineered nylon webbing
  • Full adjustability - the harness has 4-way adjustment so securely fits most shapes and sizes.
  • Reflective trim - means that your dog will be more visible in low light conditions and a light loop to attach The Beacon light to boost visibility.
  • Light padding for comfort and to stop rubbing - on the chest and belly make it more comfortable for your dog to wear for long periods and helps minimise the chance of rubbing.  The harness itself is made of a durable ballistic nylon.
  • Easy to put on/take off - just slip the harness over your dog's head, then clip the 2 side buckles

How to Size & Fit the Ruffwear Front Range Harness

    Front Range Harness

    Love this product. We have a Basenji who is a bit of an escape artist, and I saw your harness on a fb photo. Easy to put on, and it stays on!! Would fully recommend it.

    Top Quality! Amazing purchase

    I am so happy with this harness mainly due to the quality. I nhave had other harnesses and they do not even come close in strength and more importantly comfort for my dog. IO find most harnesses are made of that terrrible seatbelt material. But this harness is amazing. It also keeps my staffy stable as i now have the power behind the harness. Pay the little bit extra to get a harness for life, your dog will appreciate it.

    Magic result

    As an OAP, walking 2 Basenji has been an increasing physical risk. Being hunter dogs, with a strong urge to chase rabbits, cats etc. they are inclined to suddenly lunge and are quite strong. The front mount for leads has given me back control.

    Fast delivery

    These came the next day! Thanks canine spirit. Best harness ever, looks great and I can now walk two staffies with ease using the front lead connection. Wish I had found this earlier. Both my dogs fit the small. One is 22kgs and the other 13kgs.


    Ive used this brand of harness until it wore out ,I would only this particular one and would not buy anything else for my dog


    On my vets advice I needed to buy a front leader harness for my Toy Poodle who weights 5kg. She has damaged her neck and so this is a necessity. I had tried another brand which was great until the tiny plastic clips broke only after weeks of usage. When I received this harness and fitted it to my little girl, it was a great fit. She adapted to it straight away. The good thing about this harness is that it really does stop the pulling. Whilst waiting to choose another brand to replace the other failed one, I had to buy an ordinary harness, and she begun to pull again. So when this one arrived, I was absolutely over the moon. It is safe and a cozy fitting. It is the difference between night and day. I also on-sold to another doggy friend I met on the walk and she has gone to your site and ordered one for her dog. So yes, I am impressed. It is sturdy and I like the buckles that do up on the back. Great. Thank you.

    Confortable and fits perfectly

    Our puppy and I love it.

    Great harness

    Great harness. Seems comfy and doesn’t rub. This is our second one. Last one lasted a few years and we tow skateboardings behind our dog as well as walking her. We use the little pocket for a few poop bags.

    Quality harness

    I have a 16kg dingo/staffy. She is very strong for her size. This is the only harness that I’m aware of that I would trust with a boisterous dog. It’s built with similar materials to my rock climbing harness.....enough said.

    We'd love your feedback!

    Have you enjoyed or dreamed of an epic 'dog-friendly' holiday with your pup?

    Saved the marriage!

    My wife was always unhappy with the treat pouch she had been using (& our dog wasn't all that impressed either) so a hunting I did go...found your Treat Trader, ordered on line (we live in Australia) & all is well in love, treats & marriage!

    Great product!

    My dog came unclipped and ran off a few times using the normal lead. No more! The lockable carabiner gives me so much peace of mind. Thanks

    excellent product

    quality build, functional utility, highly recommended

    Charlie's one happy dog.

    I have an active 13 year old Kelpie x. Charlie sometimes hurts her shoulder (going too crazy after a ball or after coming for a run with me). This harness has allowed me to control how she jumps out of the car, ensuring a supported landing for her shoulder. The harness is now our go to - and unlike other harnesses it doesn't ride up or fall off to the side. I also bought the brush guard, but like some other reviews there's a bit bunching on the middle velcro, but not enough to worry about.

    Gold standard for Whippets!

    Love this harness! It fits my whippet like it’s tailor made. I purchased a S size for my 17kg whippet. The adjustable straps stay put and don’t slide loose with time. It’s very light, flexible and not bulky so my boy has full movement to run in it, no rubbing spots in armpits, and not too hot to wear in summer. Using the front chest attachment my boy no longer pulls on the lead - which is like magic - I would have paid double for this benefit alone. Highly recommend for whippets with all those glorious curves to fit right!
