Our Search and Rescue harness is made from thick 2” wide webbing. Highly visible blaze orange web and reflective tape cover both sides of the harness to provide optimal visibility during day and night time hours. This harness is lightweight with a two inch side release buckle and adjusting slide. The chest strap is padded for the dog's comfort. On top is a heavy welded D-ring to attach the lead or tracking line.

Good Harness Vest I love the design of this harness/vest. I had mine printed with "Service Dog." The reflective thread element is definitely a plus. All of the seams, the D-ring & buckle, have held up - over 2 years and counting.
I also really appreciate that the harness is sturdy enough to be used in the car, as well. I have the kind of safety connector for dogs that clips one end onto the D-ring of the harness and the other end plugs into the seat belt holder. This set-up keeps Luke from "swimming" around the back seat on the rare occasions I have to stop short or take a sharp turn. I'm pretty certain Luke is grateful for the secure tethering too.
My only disappointment is that the bright neon-orange faded to more of a hot pinkish-orangy color with only a few washings (in cold water). Luckily, my service dog Luke is both confident enough & peace-love-hippy enough to pull the more-shocking-pink-than-safety-orange color off without any ego dents. :0)
Below is pic of my mobility assistance dog Luke with our new Goldendoodle, who is being trained to take over when Luke retires next year. When little Dug is bigger, we'll be ordering another one of these sturdy, visible, warm-climate-loving harnesses.
Yes, I would recommend this product.

search and rescue harness I do search and rescue in the mountains in NC. I love the visibility of the harness and she seems to be comfortable in it. It hasn't been caught up in the woods and allows my dog to do her job. Thank you so much for having this product available.

Search & Rescue Harness I absolutely love it. Easy to put on, comfortable for my blind dog. I was looking for a harness with padding across the chest and a handle. The sheepskin is worn out, so removed it. Shall replace the padding. Have had this harness 4-5 years and it is still great, gone through many many washings. Am ordering 2 more
Only request: would prefer it without the S & R patches. Would love one that says "Blind Dog"
Thanks, and the price is reasonable too!
