The IDC® Powerharness is the newer, upgraded, version of our original K9-Powerharness®. Through research and development, the IDC® Powerharness has been designed to be more comfortable, offer improved security and safety, and allow more attachments like safety lights and saddle bags.
Choosing a harness that has the best lead attachment for your dog depends on your walking needs and how well trained your dog is on leash.
Dog harnesses come in three types of lead attachment:
- Front leash attachment
- Back leash attachment
- Duel-clip front and back attachment
Here at Julius K9 all of our leads have back leash attachment, but with our IDC® Control Y Belt With Front D-Ring attachment you can turn any of our IDC® Powerharness products into a Front leash or Duel-clip harness.

It is recommended that you hand wash all of our harnesses. In this quick guide we breakdown the best methods of keeping your official JULIUS-K9® dog harness clean and fresh.
Basic washing instructions:
- Hand wash only
- Do not bleach
- Do not iron
- Do not dry clean
- Do not tumble dry
Hand wash cleaning guide:
- Use a warm, damp cloth to wipe off excess mud.
- Remove all the hook-and-loop labels from the side of the harness. These should be cleaned separately with a warm damp cloth as tough brushes can scrub off the lettering. This will also allow you to wash away any fur and grim built up on the fasteners.
- Fill your sink or a tub full of hot water and give the harness a good soaking.
- Using a brush and washing up liquid start scrubbing away

Information misleading customers, disguised as expert opinion, is circulating on the Internet about certain dog harness types being unhealthy, while other harnesses are not.
The publishers of this misinformation have based their arguments simply on the movement of a dog’s shoulders without any actual studying or having any real knowledge of dog harnesses and their effects. Due to this lack of research, they have concluded that any harness straps resting above the dog’s shoulder and touching the neckline must interfere with shoulder movement and are therefore “unhealthy”. They go on to claim that any harness that only surrounds the dog’s chest are the “healthy” option.
In these videos and articles, the leading representatives of this opinion recommend specific chest harness brands and attempt to support these claims by amateur footage and untraceable scientific references.
No long-term studies
The fact is that there is no scientific test that would provide

Besides our active involvement in animal protection and welfare, Julius-K9® has been developing dog harnesses for over 20 years. As a result, we have been able to create harnesses of unquestionable quality and in iconic designs. It’s possible that some of our competitors may have been annoyed by that, especially if they can’t make or let alone develop harnesses themselves and they are only interested in dealing with imported harnesses they can sell at a huge profit.
