Ergonomic pulling harness developed for mushing.
Nansen Nome Harness 5.0
This pulling harness for dogs is the developed version of the earlier x-back harness model Nansen. Mushers have used the harness on a distance that equals going 16 times around the World! It is also the harness Thomas Wærner used when he won the Iditarod in 2020.
The pulling-harness is designed to let the dog perform optimally without restricting movement or breathing. The Y-shaped front and flat chest piece utilizes all of the power that the dog puts into the harness. A straight section over the dog’s neck provides full freedom of movement in the shoulder area. For dogs who are pulling to one side, this harness decreases the risk of strain because the back strap travels on the attachment point, which levels the harness and dog. A reflective flap in the neck makes it possible to see any irregularities in the dog`s movement, even if it`s dark.
Nansen nome harness is available in half-sizes, which have the same back length but a larger neck circumference. The half-sizes have a red end-rope, full-sizes have a blue end-rope. The backstrap length on this harness varies from size to size. Therefore the total length of the harness is the same, regardless of size.
