Introducing our exciting new ombre-style doggie dog harness line. This harness uses our own special color blending technique to create a beautiful Aruba Blue-inspired (blue and green) color palette harness.
Unlike traditional dog harnesses, our unique American River Ultra Choke Free dog harnesses are designed with the safety of your pet completely in mind. Traditional harnesses are made in such a way that the cut is often too high up the neck area. This can cause safety issues when your pet attempts to get loose, tightening around the dog’s neck and potentially damaging neck muscles such as the trachea or even causing suffocation.
American River Ultra Choke Free dog harnesses are designed in such an innovative way that it’s completely choke free and pulls exclusively from your dog’s chest. Our patented conforming shape fit seam technology causes the harness to adjust to your dog’s chest curve, avoiding potential neck injuries with alternate harnesses. This product is also equipped with our patented webbing slide adjustment which allows enough room to adjust the size of the harness up to 3 inches. The latter feature is especially convenient to dog owners who groom their pets and often struggle with their furry friends growing out of their harnesses. Our flexible velcro closure gives you 3 inches of wiggle room to work around that problem.
Unlike other harnesses where you have to struggle to uncomfortably place it over your dog’s head, the American River harness allows your dog to simply step into it. You can then velcro it around his or her back. It’s specifically designed to be a no fuss, simple, safe and secure process. Strength tested up to 386 lbs. by an International Independent Testing Laboratory.
This product — which also comes with Double-D-rings for extra strength — is made of 100% soft mesh polyester fabric and is washing machine safe. It also comes with reflective strips that allow your dog to be visibly seen during your late night and/or early morning walks.
This harness is currently available for dog breeds of all sizes, from XX-Small to XXX-Large, in accordance with our size chart below. Note that sizes XL and XXXL feature larger hardware and re-enforced connections and may be priced slightly higher from their respective smaller size counterparts.
How to properly determine your dog’s chest size: Use a tape measure from behind the front legs to around the deepest point of your dog’s chest to determine a perfect fit. If you do not have a tape measure, you may use this method with a piece of string and lay it next to a ruler or yardstick to get an idea of his or her chest size.
