A Revolutionary Dog Training Harness

The Crosscheck Harness is a training harness that works with your dog's pulling desire by requesting attention via their girth. It functions similarly to a martingale collar but instead requests attention around the dog's girth rather than its neck. This alternative limited-slip system allows the handler to request attention as the dog begins to pull, teaching the dog to walk beside them in an effective and humane way while doubling as a solution for escape artists. The side attachment feature is most effective when the dog is on the left side of the handler (although it is possible to switch this over for right hand walks). For Best Results pair with a short non-shock absorbing leash such as the Vario 4 Leash.

An Effective No-Pull Dog Harness and Easy Walking Harness

Using a simple figure eight configuration, this harness is also incredibly easy to fit. The front section of the harness goes over the dog's head much like a Quick-Fit Harness, with the girth strap completing the fitment with a simple side release buckle connection. With two leash attachment points, the handler has the option of using the harness as a dog training harness or simple walking harness.

The Perfect Training Harness For Small and Big Dogs

The Crosscheck Harness has been successfully tested on a wide variety of dog breeds and is perfect for dogs that pull or are in training. This particular harness is perfect for puppies and young dogs that are in training. Teaching a dog at a young age not only not to pull, but to walk on the side makes for pleasant walking for years to come. The unique Crosscheck Harness feature can also be used to remedy the bad habits of a fully-grown dog that pulls.


  • Caution: Do not leave on dog unattended.
  • Caution: PLEASE do not ever leave a dog tied up. Doing so with any EzyDog harness or collar will void the warranty. Thanks for caring about the safety of your dog!

For best fit measure the girth of the dog. This is the area behind the front legs and around the body. The neck will typically fall into place once girth is determined. If the measurement is close to the end of the size range, go up to the larger size.

    Best Harness for Quality and Control

    Posted by Emma & Badger on 18th Aug 2021

    Absolutely love this harness. The XL fits my 85lb GSD great! The cinch action allows for teaching him how to walk properly on a leash. Still needs training, but he isn’t hauling me around any more <3 Plus, the quality is better than anything else I’ve found. Absolutely worth the money. The XL is too big for my 66 lb female though.

    Figure 8 cross check harness

    Posted by CATHY STACY on 8th Jun 2021

    I have a dog that can get out of 95% of the harnesses on the market. The Cross Check harness is one of only two harnesses he can't get out of. I've spent well over $100 trying to find a harness he's comfortable in and that he can't get out of. The figure 8 Cross Check harness fulfills both requirements. Definitely worth the money and I'd recommend it to all dog owners.

    Great product

    Adjustable and comfortable for our growing pup. Sturdy stitch and so likely will last a long time. The puppy is not bothered by the feel of it too.

    Holy Grail Harness

    Posted by Michelle on 30th Apr 2021

    This is one of the only harnesses my dog hasn't been able to get out of and by far the easiest to put on. The only downside is that the harness does loosen on walks, but this occurred with our martingale too and is, I think, an inevitable result of the friction between the muscles and the adjustable banding. The setup seems to be much more comfortable than a martingale as well, since my pup tried to bite her martingale off but did not (could not) attempt to do so with this Crosscheck harness. We will never leave home without it in the future.

    Crosscheck Harness

    Posted by Mary Talcott on 22nd Mar 2021

    Our order went great and customer service is prompt! We liked the small crosscheck so much we sized up when our Australian Labradoodle (ALD) grew. We used an EasyWalker harness for our golden who was a puller. The ALD is too, but this harness does the job well. It also seems to have fewer points for causing matts in her fur than the EW. My only complaint is that the rubber at the neck is likely to cause matting problems for doodles. Time will tell. ur pup's adult coat is not in yet, and that will be the one that matts.

    Great harness

    Posted by April Marshall on 7th Jan 2021

    When we realized our dog could slip out of more traditional harnesses, we knew we needed another option. Someone in a dog group I’m a part of recommended Ezydog harnesses. I also did a search of escape-proof harnesses and this harness was one of the top. So with those two things in mind, I purchased the Crosscheck harness for my 20 pound Schipperke-mix. Because she was right in between a small and a medium, I got the medium, as was suggested by Ezydog. I love this harness! First, it is so easy to get on and off my pup. She doesn’t like wearing harnesses, but she can’t really fight us on this because it’s on in a snap. Second, it performs wonderfully. She hasn’t been able to escape. And I love that you can clip the leash on the side, which reinforces heeling as we teach her leash manners. Third, I love that it’s a martingale-style harness but with the tightening on her girth and not her neck. This also reinforces leash manners. Overall, I would highly recommend this harness to anyone!

    Best harness I’ve ever used. Easy to put on your dog and there is no escaping the harness like other ones I’ve used.
