Introduction

More and more dog owners are choosing harnesses over collars, and there’s a reason for this.

One of the main reasons is because with a collar, when you walk your dog and either you or your dog pulls, all the weight is put on your dog’s throat.

A harness, however, evenly distributes the pressure across your dogs belly, back and neck.

RUFFWEAR have been making dog care products since 1994, and their products just keep getting better and better.

Keep reading for our review of the Front Range Harness, including an extensive list of the features, and of the pros and cons.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Versatile
  • Easy to see day and night
  • Can attach the leash from front or back
  • Fits dog ID
  • Easy to secure

Cons

  • Stronger dogs may be able to escape the harness

Ruffwear Front Range Harness Product Review

RUFFWEAR are world leaders at providing quality dog-care products, and the Front Range Harness is certainly no exception.

All products by RUFFWEAR are rigorously field-tested, and they proudly guarantee against defects in materials and craftsmanship.

Design

You can find a color that matches your dog’s personality. There’s a choice from the following colors:

  • Blue dusk
  • Meadow green
  • Orange poppy
  • Tillandsia purple
  • Twilight grey
  • Wildberry

For easy and stable attachment of the leash, there’s a solid aluminum V-ring that will bear the weight of even a super strong dog’s pull.

To put on the harness:

  • Slip the harness over your dog’s head
  • Put the clips and harness fabric between the front legs
  • Bring up each side to clip in on the back
  • Clip the two plastic clips together

If you’re walking your dog in the evening or really early morning, don’t stress about visibility – there’s a reflective strip on this fantastic harness to ensure that your dog will be seen easily by cars and cyclists.

There’s an added pocket to fit your dog’s ID or tag, which will prevent it from getting lost and getting in the way while your dog is playing.

The harness is super durable and should last you and your dog many walks around the park. RUFFWEAR is the brand of choice for thousands of dog owners, and part of the reason is that the high-quality materials used ensure that they are durable and long-lasting.

Comfort

RUFFWEAR has certainly considered the comfort of your dog when making this harness. The harness features padded chest and belly panels, which will not only keep your dog warm, but it will make sure your dog is comfortable, pretty amazing.

To make sure the harness isn’t too tight or loose on your dog, be sure to select the correct size. The sizes are:

  • XX small
  • X small
  • Small
  • Medium
  • Large / XL

For that extra customized fit, there are four convenient points of adjustment for a full range of motion. This is a perfect option for growing pups – you can just adjust the straps as your dog grows.

Make sure that it isn’t too tight or loose – you don’t want your dog to be uncomfortable, or to get loose. There should be room for two fingers between your dog and the harness, at any point around the harness.

Cleaning

If you choose one of the darker colors, then dirt won’t show as easily – but if you opt for a blue or orange, then the dirt may be visible.

Luckily, this harness is easy to wash. Just hand wash with warm water and a little bit of detergent, and it will look brand new in no time.

Summary

This durable, well-designed harness is sure to make walk-time safer and more comfortable for your dog.

It’s a great harness, especially compared to a lot of other harnesses in the same price range! It has many features that make it one of the best harnesses you can buy for your dog.

Not only is it super durable, but it’s also comfortable, functional, lightweight, reflective, adjustable and it looks good – what more could you want in a harness?
