It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that C.E.S announces that we have become Dogbootie's Australian distributor for X back and Saddle Back racing harnesses.
These fantastic harnesses are used by competitors in the Iditarod and Yukon Quest which are two of the biggest sled dog races in the world. With a large reputation of quality products, these harnesses are made with strong durable light weight webbing for fast drying, firm neoprene shoulder padding for comfort, duel Gang Line loop attachments and reflective shoulder material for safety.
Available in six standard sizes and colors or custom made to best fit your best mate.
The Saddle Back Harness
The Saddle Back harness is constructed with 1 in. nylon webbing that is padded with neoprene around the neck and chest. Standard design includes 12 in. of reflective tape.
Truth be told we at C.E.S had never used a saddle back Harness prior to them being requested by customers. Now we are fully stocked and learning as much as we can about them. Like all harnesses they have their good points and bad points acording to reviews on Sled Dog Central Talk. One of the main advantages we can see is having one harness per team member for the whole season instead of the two or even three other harnesses most of us have. They are also believed to take some strain off the hips which may prolong a team members racing career or help if there is a minor hip injury.
Harnesses are sized by the neck size. For example, a black 23 1/2 in. harness means it has a neck opening measuring 23 1/2 in. around. For the best fit and performance, order the neck size that fits around your dogs head very easily. See the drop-down menu for sizes available. Harness color is size specific. Custom colors are available. A surcharge will be applied for custom colors. Price is per harness.
