I’m looking into having a leather harness made for my GSD, specifically a non-restrictive, ‘y’-shaped harness.

If you could create your own, what would you include or exclude? Looking for some opinions …

Type of leather – latigo or harness?
Width of leather – ¾” or 1”?
Quick release/connect clip – would you add or not?
Belly strap – adjustable or fixed? If fixed, what size/how long should it be?
Top strap – as this is fixed, what size/how long should it be?
Other ideas?

I would contact John Rice through this link...he makes harnesses and is very experienced in tracking. Upcoming Seminars - Suzanne Clothier/Carpe Canem Inc.
There was a fb article today that I read about harnesses and how they restrict movement. I can't link it here unfortunately.
It was on Blackthorn working dogs group.

John Rice is on fb and posted a nice thread in 2018 about the way harnesses should fit. If you are on fb, you can search him and probably view it as it was set to public.

Thank you. I had read that article some time ago, but couldn’t remember his name to find it again. I appreciate the lead!
