The all new GEARTAC XBODY HARNESS is one of the worlds first canine harness's that is designed with orthopedics in mind. Using 1.5" Mill-Spec webbing it is extremely durable and wide enough to provide comfort for your dog. We have engineered this harness to fit in such a way that it will not impede upon the leg movement of your dog. The design is built around a forward collar which then works it's way down to a built in breast plate. The breast plate is a must for the comfort of your dog when they pull forward. The webbing then continues past the breast plate of your dog and criss-cross into an "X" under your canine and return out the rear, behind your dog's front legs and becomes the rear connection point of the harness. This system creates the "XBODY" design which makes the harness one of the first "ANTI-ROLL" designs on the market. Most harness designs on the market today "roll" of center on your dog once you connect a leash to the device. Our design fits so well it will not roll or cause a "miss-fit" on your dog. The "spine" section of the harness lays directly on the back of your dog and has an average 8" section of webbing separating the front from the rear connection points. This "spine" allows for greater separation between the front and the rear allowing the front legs to move in a completely unrestricted action. Along with the spine, there is a handle incorporated onto the back section of the harness. A handle provides you added ability to maneuver your dog. Another awesome feature are the four release buckles located in this area. Having to front and two rear release buckles allows you the ability to use the harness as an "over the head" or a side entry harness. This ability gives the handler an option for dogs who do not like having devices fitted over their head. The harness is a rear connect harness which is the best place to connect a leash for the comfort of your dog. Unlike other front connect harness's on the market the GEARTAC XBODY HARNESS is not designed to pull your dog to the side when they are moving away from your walking path or in an alternative direction. This front hook design has been known to cause discomfort and potential nerve damage to your dog. Our harness is not a corrective design and is not meant to stop your dog from pulling. Our primary focus is on the comfort of your dog. To aid in having your dog decrease pulling look into the GEARTAC K9 hands free unit to help with this problem. Another innovative feature of the harness is the front leg "bumper pads" located on the "xbody" webbing situated behind the front legs of your dog. This feature is made up of a padded foam bumper coated in water proof plastic that stays free of moisture and prevents chaffing and soars behind your dogs front legs. The bumpers keep the webbing from staying in the crease between the front legs and the body of your dog allowing comfort and airflow for your dog. It can also provide padding when a dog crosses over an obstacle acting as a bumper between the dog and the object he or she is crossing over.
