Black Dog Balance Harness

Black Dog Balance Harnesses are for walking control and loose lead training. When dogs pull on leash they lean forward, using their weight and strength to pull against the leash, we often reinforce this by pulling back on the leash and inadvertently train the dog to pull even harder.

The Black Dog Balance Harness helps train your dog to balance correctly on all 4 feet and not rely on the lead – They learn to walk comfortably without pulling.

Stops your dog pulling to allows effective training. Control from the Front and the back using a Double Ended Lead for best results, or use a normal lead connected at the Front.

    Surprisingly easy to put on and finally a harness that if my dog lunges, he doesn’t choke himself in the process..I love the detailed instruction and dog training ideas that came along inside the box that we put into practice and I have a dog that is learning to walk on a leash..our walks twice a day have become so enjoyable… Thank you Black Dog

    Easy to fit however after only a few wears the harness has torn in several places. Luckily I noticed it before it had torn right through – I walk my dog near a busy road and I hate to think what might have happened if I had not noticed the tear when I did.

      Hi Jan, Were you using this along with the double lead to teach your dog to walk? This is a training harness and should be used as part of a training program to reduce your dog’s tendency to pull on lead. It shouldn’t really be used as a general harness with a pulling dog without for example the double lead to stop them pulling. That said, we use this as a general harness on our dogs now they are trained not to pull (ie, we used this harness to train them to walk on lead and then continued to use it after with no issues), though they shouldn’t be used to tether or as a car harness really.

      If you are looking for a more general purpose Harness, then look at the Black Dog Harness. We don’t actually sell that Harness though – we sell the balance harness mainly historically through customer demand with CLEAR Dog Training when they are teaching their dogs to walk on lead. Perhaps its time we stocked both!

    Fantastic!! Doesn’t hurt the dog’s neck and is an absolute life saver. I have a Lab and my sister has 2 Boxers which she can now easily walk together thanks to this harness.
    Highly recommended – could never go back to no harness.

    I’ve recently bought 2 of these Harnesses and leads for my Mini Schnauzers. 1 of the dogs would pull at the lead at times and I was always concerned with the strain on his neck, but the 1st time I put the harness on him he immediately stopped the pulling and when he did try to go ahead a little he felt the slight pressure he stopped, it has been an absolute God send, my other dog never had the problem so now I can walk with great ease and pleasure with them both.The other good thing is both the harness and leads are made of a nice soft fabric so they are lovely to hold. I would thoroughly recommend both these items. there are not enough stars for me to click.

    I can’t rave enough about the Black Dog Balance Harnesses. I have 2 Westies and they both pull so I bought one and tried it out and what a huge difference it made to our daily walk. It has also calmed her down, she would get excited and pull when she heard a dog bark behind the fence but this harness just seems to calm her. I was so impressed I bought one for my 2nd Westie and it has made our walks so much more pleasant. They fit well, don’t rub or move when adjusted correctly, wear well and wash well. I’ve tried other harnesses over the years with no success but this harness is brilliant. And the customer service given by Clear Dog is outstanding.

    This harness has helped us teach our puppy to walk loosely on a lead. The ability to attach a lead to the front of the harness is great. Highly recommended.
