Best Harness Rottweilers

Why it’s Important to Choose the Right Harness for a Rottweiler

Rottweilers are a large, powerful breed of dog with a long history dating back to ancient times.

This breed's origins can be traced to the Roman Empire, where they were used as working dogs. The Romans brought their herds of cattle with them as they conquered new lands, and they needed reliable dogs to guard and drive the livestock. The modern Rottweiler originates from Germany, where their primary job was guarding cattle, protecting butchers’ earnings, and pulling carts laden with meat.

Today, Rottweilers are popular as loyal and protective family companions and for their working roles. With their loyalty, strength, and protective nature, Rotties are also valued as police and military, and search and rescue dogs. Rottweilers are among the most recognized and respected dog breeds globally, admired for their versatility, intelligence, and striking appearance.

While the breed is known for its loyalty, intelligence, and protective nature, Rotties can also be strong-willed and stubborn. This, combined with their size and strength, make harnesses an important part of training. When it comes to walking and controlling your Rottweiler, choosing the right harness is essential for their comfort, safety, and peace of mind.

Understanding a Rottweiler's Energy and Exercise Needs

Rottweilers are a powerful and energetic breed, and understanding their energy and exercise needs is crucial. While they are known for their strength, Rottweilers also require mental and physical stimulation to lead balanced and happy lives. Regular exercise is important to keep them physically fit and mentally satisfied.

To keep your Rottie in shape, daily exercise is key. Additionally, your exercises should combine both physical and mental activities. Long walks, jogging, hiking, and engaging in dog sports like obedience, agility, or tracking can help them burn off energy and stimulate their intelligent minds. These activities also allow them to bond with their owners and channel their natural instincts in a positive way.

The Importance of Training a Rottweiler

Training is a vital aspect of owning a Rottweiler. They are intelligent and confident and naturally desire to please their owners. Proper training helps them develop good behavior, socialize effectively, and become well-rounded companions. It also establishes clear communication and strengthens the bond between you and your Rottie.

Training your Rottweiler should include basic obedience commands, leash manners, and proper socialization with people and other animals. Positive reinforcement techniques work best with this breed, as they respond well to rewards, praise, and consistency. Training sessions should be structured, engaging, and mentally stimulating to keep your Rottweiler focused and motivated.

What is the Best Rottweiler Harness?

The best harness for a Rottweiler will be one that is comfortable, secure, and helps to prevent pulling. It should also be adjustable to ensure a snug fit. A poorly-fitting harness can also make it difficult to control your dog, which can be dangerous in some situations.

At Joyride Harness, we’ve designed our harnesses with powerful breeds like Rottweilers in mind. The Joyride Harness is known for its sturdy materials and excellent craftsmanship, ensuring long-lasting performance during rigorous activities. No matter how large or strong your Rottweiler is, a Joyride Harness will help keep you in control without worrying about equipment failure. 

Additionally, the Joyride Harness features an EZ Grip handle that serves multiple purposes. It provides you with extra control and assistance when needed, allowing you to manage your Rottweiler's behavior and movements effectively. The handle is especially useful during training sessions or when encountering challenging situations during walks.

Another thing to consider when choosing the right harness for your Rottweiler is comfort. Rotties generally have short coats, and the wrong harness can cause uncomfortable chafing. To prevent this, we have outfitted our harnesses with a padded chest and fleece lining to enhance comfort and reduce the risk of chafing.

Rottweilers are a large, muscular dog breed, generally ranging from 80 to 135 pounds. Most Rottie owners purchase our XXL harness for their dogs, which can accommodate breeds ranging from 85 to 140 pounds. For smaller females and growing puppies, we recommend utilizing our size chart to find the best fit for your Rottweiler.

Both of my dogs love their harnesses!!!

I have a 12 lb Min Pin and a 140 lb Rottweiler, both love these harnesses. The Min Pin has not been able to slip out, and my Rottweiler still has room to grow in his! My Rottweiler was so excited he jumped right into it and slipped it over his own head. Awesome quality and such a cute pattern. The 3 of us could not be happier.

Works great. Bought your product for my daughter's out of control 1 year old "puppy" Rottweiler. Instead of being dragged around the yard, she now has total control. Walking Maggie the Rottweiler is a joy. Works so well that my daughter ordered a harness from you for another troublesome "puppy". Keep up the great work.

Worked for Rottweilers

Halter/gentle leaders worked well for being in control during walks, but they hated them so much. And I hate just the collar because they pull. We were all comfortable with our harnesses & I believe they walked better than ever before the first time out with their new harnesses. Both are pet therapy dogs & used to a vest, so transitioned easily to their harness. And since I walk with one on each side, the side rings were perfect.

I have a 110 lb Rottweiler who is a true handful. I purchased this harness with the hope that I could control her on our daily walks. This far exceeded my hopes!! And the handle on the top, I can now grab her before she launches on my guests! If you are on the fence about this product, please do yourself a favor and try it, you will NOT regret it!
