4 Best French Bulldog Harnesses – Tried and Tested

4 Best French Bulldog Harnesses - Tried & Tested

Finding the best French Bulldog Harness

Before we begin our quest for the best French Bulldog harness, let’s pause a moment to pay tribute to the newer A-lister on the block. Often voted one of the top five breeds in the UK and Australia (and in the top 10 USA), the French Bulldog is an adorable and friendly dog. In different parts of the UK the Frenchie is continually fighting it out between the Labrador for top spot, according to Kennel Club numbers.

Because of the uniqueness of the French Bulldog, as well as being a breed with potential breathing problems – harnesses are often preferred over collars for offering the best fit. This reduces the tug on the dogs neck if it suddenly darts or pulls.

But which is the best French Bulldog harness? It’s difficult to say as owner preference and dog need can often be a large factor. For this curated collection we’ve selected four highly popular harnesses and (with the help of our friends) – tried them out. What a great job we have!

Kaka mall Pet Dog Padded Vest Strap Harness (Medium)

Available on Amazon

We like this harness because it’s a good example of a well designed harness with both front and back rings. For those new to this concept – it’s designed to be a no- Kaka mall Pet Dog Cats Vest harness No Pull 3M Reflective Breathable Padded Mesh Adjustable Double Zinc-alloy D-ring for Outdoor Adventure (Blue, M) pull harness. The D-Ring on the back can be attached to a clip lead for normal walking. The front O-Ring is an additional alloy ring located on the chest. You can find non pull training leads like the HALTI lead which can be used with either one or two clips.

Chest Size for medium measures: 22-27 Inch(56-69 CM) – but it’s worth checking measurements on your French Bulldog before you buy.

The only real issue we have with this harness are the straps. They’re a little rigid which can make fitting and keeping the fit to be a bit of a challenge.

๐Ÿ† Ruffwear All Day Adventure Dog Harness

Available on Amazon

Ruffwear All Day Adventure Dog Harness, Orange Poppy, Small

Like the previous harness and others in the Ruffware range, this quality harness also features two hoops. One at the back for normal lead attachment and one at the front for use with a training lead. This offers better control of your French Bulldog as well as help with any pulling habits they may have on lead. Sometimes these front rings are plastic but for this harness they’ve used a reinforced webbing loop.

The material is a mix of nylon and closed-cell foam. The harness has a padded chest and belly panels for comfort, High visibility (Hi Viz) reflective trim for walking at night, and an ID pocket for storing dog tags.

Ruffware harnesses are super easy to put on and take off as well as adjust. There are four strap adjusters in total to help create the perfect fit.

It’s one of the more expensive harnesses out there – however it does have a lot of features and should last you a very long time.

As we use these harnesses time and time again for our own dogs (and foster dogs) we view this as the best French Bulldog harness out there.

ThinkPet Reflective Harness (Medium)

Available on Amazon

If you’re looking for an inexpensive harness for your Frenchie – this would be a good start. But with the low price comes some limitations compared to more premium harnesses.

ThinkPet Reflective Breathable Soft Air Mesh Puppy Dog Vest Harness Neon Yellow M(Neck 36-45cm/Chest 38-51cm) On the plus side – I’m a big fan of the colour scheme of these harnesses. The neon green it fairly stand out for a dog harness and there are three other equally impressive colours. It’s a basic harness. There are two adjustable straps at the side, one with a standard clip. The harness itself has reflective material (hi-vis) which helps see your Frenchie in the dark. The design is a good fabric but has no padding.

And the lack of padding highlights the down side to this harness. The lead attachment sits above the straps on the back, which loosens the harness should the dog pull. The straps are also a little loose, tending to loosen over time.

Overall, if you’re on a budget – you could do a lot worse than the ThinkPet harness – but if you have a slightly better budget, you could find one with a lot more features.

The final contender in this best french bulldog harness collection is the trusty Julius. The Julius K9 PowerHarness is a harness often associated with larger breeds of dog. There are however a complete range catering for the smaller breed sizes.

Best French Bulldog Harness – A Summary

That’s it from our curated collection covering the best French Bulldog harness. As you can see, shape and control of a Frenchie is all important. Unless your dog is very well behaved both on and off lead, a collar probably won’t be sufficient. You can decide for yourself which works best but remember the key factors when making your decision; training requirements, pulling behaviours and fit.
