German Shepherd Best Tactical Harnesses

As we all know, German Shepherds are big and powerful dogs, and we need to provide them only with high-quality equipment. But when it comes a time of choosing the right harness, we believe that tactical harnesses are a great choice for German Shepherd.

Before we start talking about which specific harnesses are the best choice for your German Shepherd, we must understand why is like that?

A fully grown and healthy German Shepherd can pull up to 2 to 3 times of its body weight. The average height of male GSD is 30-40 kg. And that’s why is important to choose only the best gear for your dog.

Tactical harnesses are also made from more durable materials, and they will last longer. This is crucial because, as we mention before, they are strong dogs, and they can easily destroy ordinary harnesses made from poor-quality materials.

Also the great advantage of these harnesses is that most tactical harnesses have premium features like breathable materials, aluminum buckles, double buckles, safety quick-grab handles, quick-release buckles, and much more.

We worked really hard to upgrade our harnesses and made from something ordinary, something astonishing. We hope that you will a perfect tactical harness for your German Shepherd from our big collections of harnesses.

How to put a harness on a German Shepherd dog?

Before you even think about ordering a harness for your dog, make sure that you are measuring your dog, at least twice! 

Some people make that mistake and don’t measure their dogs before they buy a product. Don’t rush, and measure your dog carefully.

If your dog is between two sizes, always choose a bigger one, because usually, all harnesses have adjustable straps, so that you can easily adjust once you receive your harness.

If you are struggling with how to measure harness and put the harness on your dog, we recommend you watch this tutorial. It’s super easy!


We still believe that tactical harnesses are a great choice for German Shepherd. You can use harnesses in training, walking, or running without putting pressure on the neck of your dog. 

This is maybe the greatest feature of all harnesses. If your German Shepherd is pulling you a lot during a walk, then maybe you want to protect his neck and get a harness, until you teach then how to walk properly with a collar without pulling you.

Don’t rush, take the time to measure properly your dog, and to choose your favorite harness.
