Black Dog Wear Balance Harness

Notify Me When Available
The Black Dog Balance Harness is for training Walking Control with pulling dogs.The Black Dog Balance Harness helps stop your dog pulling on the lead - it helps you train your dog to balance correctly on all four feet and not rely on the lead. They learn to walk comfortably without the need to pull.

  • Gently stops dogs pulling and allows effective training.
  • Control from the front and the back, using a double ended lead. (see "Balance Harness Training Packs" for Harness/Lead combos) or just connect at the front, with a normal lead.
  • Easy to fit and adjust - comfortable and strong.
  • Restores balance and allows effective lead training.

This is a great Walking Harness, and an effective training alternative for dogs with neck issues, or if a head halter is not appropriate.

If your dog is an escape artist, you may also like to consider a Connector Strap as back-up security - they are easily attached as backup security on Balance Harnesses - connected between the Front D Ring (or Back D Ring) and clipped to the dog's collar.

This is a training tool and should be used as part of a training program to reduce your dog's tendency to pull on lead.

If you are looking for a more general purpose Harness, then look at our Black Dog Dog Harness.

MEASURING for a Balance Harness:

We size Balance Harnesses by the Girth Measurement of a dog.

Don't just try to guess by breed type - there's lots of variation in sizes of individual dogs, so a Girth Measurement will get the right size harness first time.

Use a soft tape measure.
*Place the tape measure around your dog's body, just behind the front legs.
*Pull it to be a tight, snug fit and read off the measurement.

Now check the chart shown, to select the correct size.

SIZES:  Girth measurement 

Mini:  40 - 50 (cm)
Small:  47 - 63 (cm)
Medium:  55 - 72 (cm)
Large:  66 - 95 (cm)
Extra Large:  92 - 124 (cm)

We purchased this for our Rhodesian Ridge Back X puppy as he was a bit all over the place with glee when we took him out for walks. He's really calm with this on and we definitely have better control and guidance over him. He seems to really enjoy wearing this when we're out. Great price and fast postage.

Would not buy any other harness!

I was recommended the Balance Harness by my dog trainer back in 2017. My dog has ever worn this style of harness and I have bought and recommended them to many other dog owners especial for Staffies. Easy on and off, easy clean. and dry. Great colours. Chest loop is very handy for training.

Not ideal for small dogs

Not a good choice if you have a small dog/puppy as it rubs under their front legs even when fitted accordingly. My pup hated wearing it for this reason.

dog harness

The harness works well

An arm saver

Our 34 kg puppy was pulling my arm off using a traditional harness, but we switched to the Balance Harness at the recommendation of a trainer and now I don’t have a sore arm and shoulder after a walk. It’s made a huge difference, and I would highly recommend it for strong pullers.
