IT'S BEEN A LONG WAIT BUT NOW YOU CAN GET YOUR LONGWALK ONLINE!
The IDC®LONGWALK dog harness is the first joint-friendly Y-harness, designed as the ideal accessory for longer walks and leisurely excursions with your pet.
“We wanted to develop a real leisure harness for dogs, so that when you go out for a long walk or outing, as well as putting on hiking boots for your own health and comfort, you can also provide a similar type of care for your dog’s health and comfort ...”
Scientific research has shown that when walking a dog on a leash, the dog’s body, as well as the body of the person walking the dog, can be subjected to thousands of vibrations through the harness and the leash. Over time, these micro-vibrations can have a detrimental effect on the joints of both the dog and the owner.
The Duo-Flex® micro-vibration absorbing system incorporated into the IDC®LONGWALK dog harness has been designed to dampen these vibrations, tugs and jolts, lessening their impact on the dog and on the person. The Duo-Flex® system protects the joints when the leash tightens, and at other times of stress, such as when you release your dog to run off the leash.
Specially designed features of the Duo-Flex® system ensure that, depending on the load, the elastic elements come into operation gradually and in a coordinated manner. The elastic elements of the IDC®LONGWALK dog harness continually react to every step that the dog takes, protecting the joints in every situation.
• Duo-Flex® micro-vibration absorbing system
• Adjustable and openable straps - the harness can be put on and taken off without the need to pull it over the dog’s legs.
• Chest pad openable by hook and loop fastener - the harness can be precisely adjusted to the body structure and size of the dog
• Neoprene lining and special inner stiffener combine to make the harness perfectly formfitting and to ensure that it keeps its shape
• Bag and flashlight attachment options
• Reflective and phosphorescent elements to enhance visibility
• Super-grip handle ensuring a secure grip
• Interchangeable custom labels
• Red Dot Award-winning design and colour scheme
OEKO-TEX® IS THE ANSWER!
Our dogs are often seen as family members, and their health, safety and wellbeing is of the utmost importance to us.
For this reason, it’s essential that manufacturers of dog harnesses use high quality and skin-friendly materials that are guaranteed to be safe for human use! I mean why would we put an accessory on our pooch that wasn't safe for us to use ourselves!
All materials imported into the EU require Reach certification which states that they do not contain any harmful or prohibited ingredients. So it is super important that the straps and linings used on dog harnesses have this certification, to avoid the risk of any potentially damaging components being absorbed into our beloved pooch via contact with the skin. But who can give this certification? That's where OEKO-TEX® comes in!
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a globally standardized, independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products of all processing stages and accessory materials used.
The strict tests for harmful substances and measures of this standard include:
And what does all of this mean? The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification offers reassurance that the materials used in the manufacturing of the Julius-K9® dog harnesses are completely safe for you and your hounds. And that's a big thumbs up in our book!
