I seem to think that the ring you clip onto would be better set further back for tracking, where nose work, you might want it more to the front toward the shoulders?
Can anyone make suggestions for both types (if they are different), or is there one that has different ring settings for the leash to attach? I am doing more nose work at this point, but want to do tracking as well.
I'd prefer a harness that goes over the head and clips under the girth area as opposed to a step through
I do IPO tracking which is done with a 33' line and a fursaver. No harnesses allowed.
For Nosework I use the Julius K9 Beltharness for ORTs/trials. In training I often switch up collars/harnesses depending on where I am (often just placing hides on a whim). I use most of my equipment for multiple purposes and don't want to rely on equipment to cue (or confuse) my dog.
I'm not doing IPO although I want to train the IPO style of tracking (if I can ever find someone to help me!) I do have a fur saver, but I find it awkward for tracking. I don't mind her knowing when she's wearing a harness that she is working, although I doubt she cares what she's wearing.
I am currently using a harness that comes with a backpack, but took the pouches off (they unclip) and I hate it. lol The clip is too far back and there's no handle, sometimes my dog needs a handle. lol
This is mine. I've also used this harness for flyball and protection training. This was a nosework trial. I think he's also wearing his normal leather "every day" collar, but sometimes I prefer a harness for nosework so he's not getting tripped up in slack line.
