JULIUS-K9® - Inventor of the dog harness with interchangeable patches and hook & loop system on the chest.
Thanks to a major development in the IDC Powerharness the chest strap forwards the power lines of the leash.
Breathable, skin friendly inner linerNormally we don't pay enough attention to these great properties. The OECO-TEX material is manufactured to the highest standards in human clothing manufacturing.
Heavy duty buckles
The high-quality buckles of an IDC-Powerharness are rigorously tested and checked. This is especially vital in the winter, these buckles work perfectly and don't break even in the coldest weather.
Reflective edges and chest strap
One of the most important functions of an IDC-Powerharness is that it works well also as a visibility vest. The grey line of the chest strap and the edges of the harness are made of reflective materials, so the walking dog is visible in the dark from an even greater distance.
Sidebag fixing option
Sidebags are available in 3L and 4L versions for the bigger Powerharnesses. sizes from 0 to 4. A smaller IDC-Universal sidebag has also been available since 2013. With a 250 ccm capacity it's ideal to carry personal documents, vaccination papers, a cell-phone and dog treats.
The torch holder is made of rigid elastic, so it is very stable, the torch can not slip out of the holder. It's useful for night walks to follow your dog. Thanks to the ergonomic design you don't have to worry that your dog could be blocked because of the loops. The torch holder is made of high quality German materials. It also allows the use of sidebags simultaneously.
It's essential for search and rescue dogs and for every service dog that works in the dark.
Removable interchangeable patches
There are about 1000 different interchangeable patches in various languages in stock, but you can also order a customized one especially for your dog. The IDC-Powerharness comes complete with a pair of fluorescent JULIUS-K9 series labels which glow in the dark.
Handle lock with new snap
The new handle fixing option on the IDC-harness allows for 4 different variations. You can fix only the steel ring, only the handle, both of them or neither of them. With these options you can minimize the dog's chances of being blocked. It's really important especially for hunting dogs along with search and rescue dogs.
Note: If the dog is blocked by bushes in a place that is not visible, the IDC-Powerharness allows for free movement backwards, so that the dog can escape.
Available with safety lock in the color black
Highest quality certified by independent crash test. The buckle of the product has opened at 300 kg, but the harness itself did not break.

I spent a fair amount of time researching harnesses for my Therapy Dog. There are a ton of cheap $25 vests on Amazon from China, but I wanted something that was going to fit right and be comfortable for my pup during extended wear. As well, I wanted something that was going to stand up to the daily wear and tear. Enter Julius K9! I stumbled across their harnesses and took a risk by ordering one blind. I can honestly say the quality is leaps and bounds above all other harnesses I've encountered while out. This thing is padded in all the right places and just plain feels premium.
If you're in the market for a harness, but you're considering going with the $25 Amazon special, reconsider. Give these harnesses a try and I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
I have been searching for the "perfect" harness for my German Shepherd (Dusty) for a couple of years. None of the ones I found seemed to fit him properly. I purchased the IDC harness for him a couple weeks ago and it is by far the best harness I have ever owned. It fits him exactly at it should and he is so much more comfortable on our walks. It's easy to get on,off, adjust, and more importantly, it doesn't rub on his armpits. Dusty is a an escape artist so I purchased the optional y-belt as well, but I haven't felt the need to use it yet. I also love the patches! Dusty is extremely fearful of people and reactive to other dogs. The "do not pet" patches are easy for people to see and keeps unwanted interaction to a minimum. This harness is sturdy and perfect for larger breeds. Worth every penny!
Radar is a blind from birth 3 yr old Chesapeake Bay Retriever. This is his second Julius K9 IDC harness. His first one is still in pretty good shape after 2.5 yrs of hard wear. Radar wears it every time we leave home. The handle is invaluable for helping him jump out of the car or when we are hiking and I need to quickly grab him before he runs into something or off an edge. The vest and "I'm Blind" labels provide maximum visibility that he has a disability and people act appropriately. We ordered a new harness so he could have one for special occasions that wasn't faded.
