What Is The Best Dog Harness For Bulldogs?

Shopping for a dog harness should be easy. As a bulldog owner though, you might be experiencing a different story. Dog harness shopping becomes a challenge for different breeds like bulldogs and English Bulldogs because of their unique chest shapes. And these fur babies are strong as heck!

Combine the challenge of shopping harnesses for a bulldog because of their girth with the challenge of shopping harnesses for a puller, and things seem more difficult; that was until you learned about Joyride Harness.

You can use our "By Weight" size chart or you can use our "By Girth" size chart. As far as shopping for bulldogs goes though, we recommend going by girth size chart since the most common pain point is finding the right size for your bulldog's large or broad chest. When you receive your harness in the mail, the first thing you'll do is put it on your bulldog, buckling one strap behind their front legs (under their chest) and using the velcro strap across the front of the dog's chest. You'll then turn your focus to the adjustment straps. The durable mesh design of the harness allows you to tighten the straps at the adjustable points to mold to a perfect fit.

In the case that you got the wrong size harness for your bulldog, exchanges are FREE (for U.S./domestic only). You can find more information on exchanges at this link.

What are the other benefits to this harness?

  • Durable quality that is machine-wash safe
  • No pressure around the dog's neck, minimizing the risks of tracheal collapse
  • Secure buckle
  • Better control of pullers (no-pull dog harness)
  • Works great with 2-in-1 Leash & Seatbelt Combo for car rides
  • Three rings for different leash and seatbelt attachment points
  • Can still be worn with a dog collar
  • Lightweight but with plenty of padding
  • Breathable mesh for long walks
  • Reflective straps and stitching for night visibility

Tiffany L. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“The harness is awesome, as the owner of a 5 month old, 50lb Olde English Bulldogge, it’s a lifesaver! He pulls less and I can control him, making our walks a lot easier!!!

Claudia G. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“I came across this harness in an Ad and I’m glad I watched the whole commercial. I ordered one to replace the cheaply harness I had purchased from Petco. I immediately noticed the ease of putting it on and taking it off my 4-month English Bulldog. I love the handle and multiple points of clipping on a leash. I loved it so much I even got one for my sister’s dog and insisted she replace the harness she was using on her dog.”

Rick T. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“Excellent, our bulldog likes it much better than a collar.”

Brandi H. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“H and Blu love their new Harnesses!  H is 71 lbs and has a large chest. He’s in an XL and the fit is perfect!  I have wanted soft harnesses for a while but the ones in the store are dainty and never seemed like they would hold up to my boys.  This one does. Very well made. Also super easy to get on them. Their regular harnesses were a chore and of course they are excited so it takes forever to get them on. Joyride’s harness slips over their head, one clip, and done!  I am so so so very happy with these!  Blu is 45 lbs, also with the wide bulldog chest, and he is in a large. 

These harnesses were very easy to adjust to their odd bully shapes as well!”

Emmalee T. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“This harness is one that accommodates a bulldog beautiful body the best.”

Kristen F. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

“My Olde English Bulldog is powerful, and the Joyride Harness is the only harness that allows me to control him on a walk without hurting him or digging into his skin. The handle is perfect to re-direct him, plus, he looks really handsome in it. We had an issue where the clip was unhooking randomly, and the Joyride customer service team was amazing by sending us a replacement right away, no questions asked. I respect this brand and will continue to recommend them to everyone I know!”
