Symptoms: Ears perked, tail wagging with reckless abandon, and an uncontrollable urge to spin around in circles.
As dog people, we’re well aware of the classic signs sparked by even the slightest creak of the front door. To a dog, they see a leash, a harness, some treats and suddenly it’s clear that it’s going to be the best day ever – again.
Aside from occasional squirrel sightings, our pups have a fairly one-track mind - Fun. With that said, as the workweek slumps off your shoulders, there’s nothing like recreating with your best friend to make any regular day a fantastic adventure. So why not do so with the most reliable dog gear out there?
Back in 2003, a three-point adjustment harness was born and Ruffwear was forever changed. Upon releasing the innovative Web Master Harness, we suddenly had a piece of gear that worked not only for ‘Houdini’ escape artist dogs, but also for hiking, running and playing.
Although the basic features of the Web Master Harness have stuck around since day one, we’ve continuously been improving our design over the years. Almost ten years later, the 2012 version of what’s become a favorite on and off the trail is here. Here are some of the improvements made to the newest 2012 version:
No-Slip Girth Straps
- With the addition of a new ladder lock, we’ve developed an efficient way to ensure the harness girth straps will stay in place for a secure fit. The girth straps are designed to support the dog as you assist them over fallen trees and logs, boulders, or even steep terrain with the padded assistance handle.
Narrow Belly Pads
- While still maintaining the same comfort and support of our anatomically designed girth straps, we made them even better. Slightly narrower minus the fleece, the straps maintain the same comfort without twisting, slipping, or getting stuck.
Less Bulk – More Comfort
- We’re constantly looking for ways to keep our products not only innovative, but also durable enough for the toughest dogs. With the Web Master now 20% lighter, we’ve maintained the same strength as previous models, while reducing the bulk of the overall harness. With this improvement, your dog will benefit from a lighter-weight harness that is less rigid, yet just as tough as its always been!
So when you’re hiking, scrambling, or even assisting in mobility and rehabilitation, the Web Master is a perfect multi-use harness built tough and smart.
Tail wagging, happy panting, indoor-itis is cured.
