Haqihana Harness



The Haqihana harness is individually hand-made in Italy, and is designed to give maximum comfort in all situations.

The fit ensures that pressure is properly distributed on the dog’s sternum and thorax, which helps to prevent pulling.

All parts that have contact with the dog’s skin are finished with a special stitching. This prevents rubbing, particularly in short-haired dogs.

Made from high tenacity spun-dried nylon, this harness comes with a 5 year guarantee.

The only harnesses endorsed by world famous author and dog trainer Turid Rugaas.

Turid Rugaas says: “ A comfortable harness like this allows freedom of movement and there is no pinching behind the front legs. The dog does not pull because he feels comfortable and is relaxed.”

International scientific literature inspired Haqihana to create a more comfortable alternative to walking a dog on a collar. The Haqihana harness is non inhibitive, easy to put on, comfortable and stylish.

The material and components are all sourced in Europe, and are non toxic and fully recycable. Each harness is handmade in Italy with the utmost care and attention to detail, making them extremely durable.

Design The positioning of the harness on the dog has been carefully studied to guarantee maximum comfort in all situations. Pressure is properly distributed on the dog’s sternum and thorax only, even when the dog is pulling, jerking or being restrained. The harness does not cause pain, sense of restriction, friction or injury to the skin, and does not limit movement or create other discomfort. The two buckles and their position make putting on and removing the harness trouble-free for dog and owner.

Webbing The webbing is made of high tenacity, spun-dyed nylon-6 which guarantees colour homogeneity and resistance. The special characteristics of nylon (polyamide) make it particularly suitable for harness and leash production. In fact, amongst synthetic fibers, nylon is well-known for its softness, optimal strength-to-weight ratio, abrasion resistance, and chemical and biological stability. Finally, it is fully recyclable. The webbing is made in Italy to our design

Manufacture The harnesses are hand-made paying great attention to detail. Safety and comfort for the dog are paramount. All parts are sewn together with secure stitching and the overlapping parts, which have contact with the skin, are finished with a special stitching to avoid any rubbing, particularly in the short-haired dog.

The Plastic Components The buckles and adjusters are made of acetal resin which maintains longlasting mechanical and shock resistance even in extreme conditions. The plastic parts are rounded off and have no sharp edges in order to ensure the dog’s comfort.

Sizes and Adjustability The eleven sizes on offer, and the five adjustment points on each size guarantees allows for a huge amount of adjustment in order to fit dogs of all shapes and sizes.

Guarantee Harnesses are guaranteed for five years from date of purchase for any defect, breakage or other that is not considered normal wear and tear and when it occurs during the correct use of the product. Haqihana reserves the right to verify correct use of the product. Incorrect use is considered for example chewing of parts or failing to follow washing instructions.

How to fit your harness-

The B segment is the non-adjustable one and it’s going to rest along the spine from the base of the neck to the ring for the lead.

The D segment is adjustable and it will be placed along the dog’s sternum.

The E segment (once the harness is closed) needs to be about 4 fingers from point x, away from the dog’s armpits and scapula.

Warning: for reference, it’s important to consider that the R1 ring will have to be at the base of the neck between the scapulas (cervicothoracic junction of the spine) and the R2 ring will have to correspond to the tip of the sternum (manubrium).

Washing instructions
– Haqihana harnesses and leashes can be washed by hand or machine washed on a gentle cycle (we suggest placing them in a laundry bag made for delicate items). Use the same care that you would for washing a wool sweater (mild detergent and cold or lukewarm water). Hang out in a dry place away from direct sunlight.Do not tumble-dry.
