The Freemotion harness 5.0 is an adjustable dog pulling harness with an ergonomic design.
A good harness is essential for your dog’s comfort, performance and injury prevention. With the aim of developing a harness that would unleash our dog’s potential, we started sewing the first prototype of the Freemotion harness in 2006. The product development has been continuous ever since.
This upgraded version of the Freemotion harness is the result of years of experience and testing. The classic Y-shaped front allows free shoulder movement and minimal breathing constraints. The Freemotion harness 5.0 has a padded neck opening for optimum stability and support. This dog harness is specifically designed for activities with a high pulling point, such as running, biking or skiing. The pull force is evenly distributed over your dog’s body without putting pressure on their spine. When leaning into the harness, the power of each stride is utilized to the maximum, turning running together into a whole new experience for both you and your dog.
Even though the previous models could already last for a decade, we have improved the materials used for the Freemotion harness 5.0. All fabrics are carefully chosen to be both durable and comfortable. The inner lining is gentle to your dog’s coat. There are no hard edges, and every seam has its smooth side towards your dog’s body to prevent chafing.

HOW TO MEASURE MY DOG FOR THE FREEMOTION HARNESS 5.0?
Measure your dog’s neck circumference to find the right size of the Freemotion harness. The length and depth of this pulling harness are adjustable.
Measure where the harness will lie. Make sure to measure tight around the neck, and pull away your dog’s fur to get an accurate measurement. You can see how to measure your dog for a harness in this video.
The size finder on the product’s page will help you find the correct size for your dog. Based on the measurements, simply fill in your dog’s numbers and a size will be suggested for you. With this tool, you will also see if your dog is close to going one size up or down. The colored tab on the harness indicates which size the harness is.
The harness’s dimensions are available on the product page if needed.
If the harness does not fit, you can exchange the harness for the right size. Visit this page to read more about returns and exchange.
HOW TO FIT THE FREEMOTION HARNESS 5.0?
The Freemotion harness 5.0 is adjustable to fit as many dogs as possible. Adjusting the harness correctly is important to utilize the properties to the maximum.
When adjusting the harness, your dog must be standing in the same position as when pulling; the back should be straight with the head and neck low as an extension of the back.
A pulling-harness should be snug around the neck to prevent it from sliding down towards your dog’s shoulders, as that will limit movement. If you think it is hard to get the harness on or off, you can twist it horizontally before pulling it over your dog’s head. This can also be done when taking the harness off. Loosening the side straps will also help.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STATIC AND ELASTIC SIDE STRAPS?
The Freemotion harness 5.0 comes with static side straps as a standard. From size 4 and up, these can be replaced with elastic side straps. Elastic side straps give your dog a few more centimeters of movement for each stride. Because of this, elite athletes doing canicross, bikejoring and skijoring often prefer to use elastic side straps. The elastic straps are made for racing, and are less durable than the static straps.
WHICH SPARE PARTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE FREEMOTION HARNESS 5.0?
We want you to have your harness for many years. Therefore parts that are exposed to wear and tear are available for purchase. You can find the spare parts in this section on our website. You can watch how to change the side straps in this video.
WHICH KNOT IS USED ON THE BACK PIECE, AND HOW DO I TIE IT?
The knot at the rope on the back piece is called a Fisherman’s knot. Tighten the knots before using the Freemotion harness 5.0 for the first time.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FREEMOTION HARNESS 5.0 AND THE PREVIOUS MODEL?
The main difference is the padded neck and optimized fit. A reflective loop* has been added at the top of your dog’s neck. We have also improved the materials for better durability and comfort, and chosen to stitch the ends of the adjustable back piece to prevent it from sliding. The colored straps that indicate size have changed to smaller, colored tabs. We have chosen stitched logos rather than silicone on the Freemotion harness 5.0, as it is a more sustainable choice.
*A leash must not be directly attached to the reflective loop. This will not hold the dog and may result in product failure.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FREEMOTION HARNESS 5.0 AND THE COMBINED HARNESS?
The Combined harness is a pulling harness with the exact same design and function as the Freemotion harness but with additional attachment points for a pulk. The Combined harness also comes with an optional girth strap that will prevent your dog from sliding out of the harness.
