International scientific literature inspired Haqihana to propose a substitute to the collar and halti, which is often a painful source of physical and psychological problems for the dog.
What is a Haqihana Harness?
*Girth Measurement is widest point of the ribcage
The Haqihana Harness is handmade paying great attention to detail, with safety and comfort paramount for the dog. The harness does not cause pain, friction or injury to the skin and does not limit movement in any way or create any other discomfort. The two buckles make putting on and removing the harness a breeze for both dog and owner.
XL – Girth 90-130cms, (St Bernard, Great Dane)
L – Girth 70-100cms, (Weimaraner, Rottweiler, German Shepherd)
M – Girth 60-80cms, (Golden/Labrador Retriever, Boxer, Border Collie, Greyhound)
S – Girth 50-70cms, (Cocker Spaniel, Beagle, French Bulldog)
XS – Girth 40-55cms, (Westie, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel)
XS Long – Girth 40-55cms, (Whippet, Dachsund)
XXS – Girth 33-45cms, (Miniature Pinscher, Maltese)
XXXS – Girth 30-40cms, (Chihuahua)
(The breeds mentioned are for general size guidance only).
Design, together with well-proportioned dimensions and positioning of the harness on the dog have been carefully studied to guarantee maximum comfort in all situations. Pressure is properly distributed on the dog’s sternum and thorax only, even when the dog is pulling, jerking or being restrained. The harness does not cause pain, sense of restriction, friction or injury to the skin, and does not limit movement or create other discomfort. The two buckles and their position make putting on and removing the harness trouble-free for dog and owner.

SIZES AND ADJUSTABILITY
The carefully studied sizes and the five point regulation guarantees optimal wearability and adaptability of the harness for all dog sizes and morphology.
The harnesses are handmade paying great attention to detail. In fact safety and comfort for the dog are very important. All parts are sewn together with secure stitching and the overlapping parts, which have contact with the skin, are finished with a special stitching to avoid any rubbing, particularly in the short-haired dog.
The webbing is made with high tenacity spun-dyed nylon-6 which guarantees colour homogeneity and resistance. The special characteristics of nylon (polyamide) make it particularly suitable for harness and lead production. In fact, amongst synthetic fibres nylon is well known for its softness, optimal strength-to-weight ratio, abrasion resistance and chemical and biological stability. Finally, it is fully recyclable. The webbing is made in Italy to Haqhiana design.
THE PLASTIC COMPONENTS
The buckles and adjusters are made from acetal resin, which maintains long lasting mechanical and shock resistance even in extreme conditions. The plastic parts are rounded off and have no sharp edges in order to ensure the dog’s comfort.
The metal components are in Stainless Steel (Inox 304) which does not release Nickel or cause allergic reactions in accordance with European regulations.
Haqihana harnesses and leads can be washed by hand or in the washing machine on the delicate cycle (we suggest putting them in a delicates wash bag). Wash them with the same care you would use to wash a wool sweater for example (delicate detergent and cold or room temperature water, hang dry).
GUARANTEE AND REPAIRS
The guarantee covers the harnesses and leads for 5 years from purchase date – with repair or replacement – against all faults, breakage or that which is not considered normal wear and tear. Haqihana reserves the right to verify the correct use of the harnesses and leads. (For example chewing of the harnesses or leads or failing to follow washing instructions is not considered correct usage). Haqihana also provides a repair service for a fee in all other cases where the repair is technically possible.
