How to Measure
HISTORY OF THE HARNESS
As lifelong dog enthusiasts who have owned and trained rescue dogs of all shapes and sizes we found a need for an effective better designed, higher quality product that promotes the health and safety of the dog, whether they are top performance dogs or just your best friend lying on the couch beside you. Dissatisfied with existing dog walking tools, we consulted veterinarians, veterinary chiropractors, canine massage therapists, rehabilitation specialists, professional dog trainers, and our friends in the dog community as to what would be a more effective and ergonomic dog walking tool.
Based on our fact finding, we set out to design a harness that was ergonomically superior to anything on the market and that would not encourage the dog’s natural opposition reflex to drive their head down and pull. It also was designed to allow the dog to run, sit, swim, play and compete in sporting events with comfort and without restraint of natural movement.
WHY IS THIS HARNESS SUPERIOR?
This harness does not work like traditional Schutzhund style harnesses that encourage pulling and are used for agitation work. Traditional harnesses and collars of all types put pressure on the dog’s head, neck and ribcage. In so doing they promote pulling and straining against the device as a natural response to restraint.

Additionally, the neck region of the dog has several sensitive structures such as the larynx (voice box), esophagus (food tube), trachea (windpipe), blood vessels, nerves, thyroid gland and lymph nodes. Pressure is also transferred to the cervical spine with more traditional walking tools. Putting pressure on these structures if your dog has a condition such as laryngeal paralysis, collapsing trachea, cervical disk disease, brachycephalic airway disease etc. is not recommended. The BrilliantK9 Ergonomic Dog Harness is an excellent choice for dogs with any of these medical conditions.
The harness also has safety features such as high reflective trim, quick grab handle and the ability to attach a seat belt adaptor for safer car transportation. It comes in many colors and pattern designs and can also be custom made for special circumstances.
Our companion animal’s health is as important as our own and our mission is to provide you with the most ergonomic, comfortable, effective and safe product on the market. We are also proud that our product is made in the USA.
