Which harnesses are suitable for my purposes?

SAFETY and FASTER harnesses. For pure pulling work you can also use our X-Back harness. The all-round harness is in any case our SAFETY harness, which is really suitable for EVERY dog due to the many sizes and intermediate sizes as well as the possibility of custom-made design. Here we show an overview of the many possible applications of our SAFETY harness.

What size SAFETY harness does my dog need?

It is often the case that measurements are taken by different people on the same dog
differ greatly from each other. Therefore, I judge myself with the size allocation only by the weight of the dog. Except of it actually only dogs, which deviate from the standard physique like some so-called "fighting dog types", pugs or also greyhounds.
Here I offer then special productions: a short stocky dog with 26 kg could e.g. get a SAFETY in size M with neckline M/L or even L. A greyhound with a very slim neck with 26 kg could get a SAFETY M with a S/M neckline.
 
For your orientation you will find HERE different customer examples which will help you, to find the right size for your dog too.

If you have any questions about the size of the SAFETY short harness please send me
otherwise please breed type / mix type and weight of the dog. I will gladly advise you

How do I determine the correct clamp size for my bike antenna?

The bike antenna holds the pulling rope, on which the dog pulls the vehicle, away from the front wheel - so that the rope does not get tangled. The rope is NOT attached to the antenna, but to the frame of the vehicle.

It is attached to the frame with a clamp. For this we need the frame diameter. How is the frame diameter determined now?

We have also made a video for this:  determing the frame diameter
