Are you looking for where to buy a sledding harness - or weight pull harness - or 'mushing' or 'husky' harnesses for dogs?

There are many sports, founded on traditional sled dogs like the Alaskan Malamute, Siberian Husky, Samoyed, and Alaskan Husky available but the 'sled dog' needs proper equipment, and beginning with the harness, to participate in them. Many other breeds - Newfoundland dogs, Retrievers, Labs, Poodles and many cross breeds excel at these activities but need harness sizes suitable to their weight and structure. There is a full selection of harnesses for large dogs as well as harnesses for small dogs and they can be shipped anywhere - Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec or the East Coast. Shipping to the US is costly and consequently I rarely sell to the USA.
Competition weight pulling harnesses are for pulling weight for weight pull competitions, work or a heavy sledge and have a spreader bar at the back of the harness. Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies were the original sled dogs, with Alaskan Malamutes as the main freight pulling dogs, on sledge, in the Arctic and through heavy snow. Modern times however has seen the advent of 'weight pull competitions' - for all breeds - and they can be a interesting activity for your dog. Pitbulls, Newfoundland dogs, other bull dog breeds are major weight pull competitors. Alaskan Huskies are the main sledding dog for modern races - built for speed and endurance.
