Why buy a Julius K-9 Harness?

Optimum load distribution

The most important improvement was the as optimum as possible distribution of the load acting on the dog. Compared to other dog harnesses, in the case of the IDC-Powerharness the pulling force of the dog acts not on the neck of the dog, but directly on the chest of the dog. This was achieved with the modification of the position of the chest strap, patented by Julius-K9®.

The size and position of the chest strap designed for optimum load distribution is based on mathematical calculations.

In the development of the chest strap, it was taken into account that the load acts on the chest of dogs of different sizes at different vector angles. Therefore the angle of the chest strap is not uniform for all sizes.

The IDC® Power dog harness


The IDC Powerharness, with reflective elements positioned on different parts of the dog harness, also functions as a high visibility vest. Thus the dog is visible in the dark to oncoming cars from over 100 meters.


Replaceable side labels

All of our dog harnesses come with replaceable JULIUS-K9® side labels, Velcro attachable to the sides of the dog harness.


Tested quality

The harnesses were subjected to an independent, certified quality test (Crash-test). The product achieved a tensile strength of 300 kg, then the buckle opened, but the harness did not break.

Closable handle

When the dog is walked without a leash, the handle on the top of the dog harness is of great service. It allows the dog to be held quickly and securely. The handle was improved to make it closable together with the central ring by means of a strap. This way it can be prevented from getting caught accidentally by twigs, protruding objects.

Torch holder


An indispensable accessory for search and rescue dogs, working dogs working in the dark, however, it is also ideal for evening walks, allowing us to monitor the movement of the dog. Diameter of the torch holder: 15-20 mm


Side bag attachment option


The side bag is available in 3- and 4-liter versions, and can be attached to larger Powerharnesses of sizes 0-4. From 2013 a smaller IDC® universal side bag was introduced, with a volume of 250 cm3 it is excellent for carrying all personal documents, vaccination records, a telephone and treats.


Breathable, skin-friendly lining

Unduly little attention is paid to this excellent property of the harness. The OEKO-TEX® clothing material and the related strict standards are applied in the production of products intended for human use.
