The Dragrattan Stick Harness (otherwise known as a Seavey Harness) is made for dogs who have a constant load to pull where the pulling centre is low, such as on a sled.
The harness is designed to put less pressure on the dog’s back end than a conventional long harness. The side straps of the harness also ride lower than normal, which straightens the line of pull to the shoulders which in turn increases power. Also, because there is less downward pressure, there is a decrease in the tendency to crab, and also harness rub is minimised.
The Stick Harness is based on the R-Harness style and sizing. They are available in sizes 03 to 08.
Dragråttan equipment is one of the longest established sled dog companies still in existence. Based in Northern Sweden, their harnesses and other equipment have been developed over many years of racing and training and are in use by some of the top sled dog atheletes around the world. Their most notable user is world renonwned musher Egil Ellis, who chose Dragråttan equipment over any other many years ago and has never found anything better.
