Our sighthound harness immediately makes walks fun, safe and stress free.

It has been designed just for sighthound breeds so we've been able to make it incredibly comfortable by taking their unique needs into account, which makes for a very happy hound, and an equally happy owner.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Review:

"The harness allows lots of adjustment so it fits perfectly and comfortably, without the risk of him escaping."

Escape Proof: This whippet harness / greyhound harness has a third strap that tucks under the chest, preventing any chances of escape and giving you peace of mind.

Perfect Fit for Sighthounds: Designed for their unique body shape with five points of adjustment for a completely customisable fit.

Unparalleled Comfort: The harness is completely padded for your sighthound's comfort, including belly straps and chest piece.

Slim Chest Piece for Unrestricted Movement & No Rubbing: The slim profile doesn't get in the way, ensuring your dog can walk, run and play with absolute freedom. Our design leaves plenty of room between and around the front legs, so there's no risk of rubbing, a common problem with other harnesses.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Review:

"Knowing my dog is safe and secure, means I can enjoy my outdoor time too 😊"

Other reasons we think this is the best greyhound harness, whippet harness and lurcher harness:

  • Made using breathable perforated fabric which is gentle on your dog's skin - keeps them cool on warm days whilst still providing insulation on chilly days.
  • Safer than a collar as it distributes force across the chest instead of the neck, reducing the risk of injury.
  • Two multi function handles for complete control and for navigating obstacles.
  • Made with high quality materials so it will stand the test of time.
  • Quick release buckles make it easy to get on and off - we've also covered these to prevent rubbing.
  • Reflective detailing for night time visibility.
  • Showerproof for a dry dog - quick drying and machine washable.
  • Easy to use - it's as simple as putting the harness on to get all of these benefits immediately.
  • 10% of profits from your order will be donated to sighthound charities in the UK.

Why I Needed This Harness

Blondie, my Saluki mix and the original Snootiful Hound, had a talent for escaping any harness we put her in. Maybe you can relate to this too.

One day walking home from the park, she got loose on a main road and decided that was a good place for zoomies. As you can imagine, the 5 minutes it took to get her back felt like an eternity.

That was the final straw and so I set out to make an escape proof harness to stop Blondie's escape act, and I'm pleased to say that she hasn't come close to escaping since.

Immediately our walks were fun and stress free again, and our bond has never been better.

But I didn't stop there. I wanted to make the perfect harness for the perfect dog(s), so every feature has been designed with our sighthound's unique needs in mind.

So whether you have an escape artist or not, I really believe this is the best harness for sighthounds available.

How The Whippet Harness / Greyhound Harness Works

Traditional harnesses do not account for the unique shape of a sighthound or their knack for escaping harnesses.

Our harness has a third strap which tucks behind the chest which has a smaller measurement, so it physically cannot slide forwards.

Sandy Reid Brown
Great harness

This man obviously understands the needs of us sighthound owners. It fits beautifully it’s safe and secure padded in the right places would highly recommend.


Perfect for my lurcher and seems to calm her when she’s wearing it. Easy to put on and feels safe. Great quality. Highly recommend.

Alix Plumley
Great quality harness

I ordered the olive green harness in Small for my 7 month old whippet and it’s great! Quality feels good, it looks great, and it’s more lightweight than our other, similar harness. The only downside is that there is only one clip on each strap, meaning the dog has to step into the harness with one leg (similar to putting on a dog jumper)

Devon Gale
Great Harness

This harness fits our Lurcher perfectly, thank you!

Amanda Petty
Ted's new harness

I just love these harnesses. They fit perfectly and are so well made. Ted is sporting one of the new colours, he's already got a red one. So glad I stumbled across Snootiful Hound, when I was looking for a harness and colour. Thanks Maleki


How do I choose the right size for my sighthound?

Measure around the widest part of their chest to get their measurement and then choose the corresponding size.

XS - 43-56cm / 17-22" - Recommended for Italian Greyhounds, small Whippets, puppies

S - 56-69cm / 22-27" - Recommended for Whippets and Adolescent dogs

M - 69-81cm / 27-32" - Recommended for Greyhounds, Lurchers, Salukis, Galgos

L - 81-107cm / 32-42" - Recommended for large greyhounds, large lurchers and other large sighthound breeds

Why are there no belly measurements?

You only need to measure your dogs chest for the perfect fit.

This harness is made specifically for sighthounds and we're confident in our measurements.

As long as you order the right chest size, you will be able to adjust the belly strap to fit perfectly.

My dog is between sizes, what do I do?

We recommend buying the larger size. It will allow any growing room and make sure it isn't too tight and you can adjust it down to the right fit.

If you're really unsure, I'm happy for you to order both sizes and return one. Take care when handling the products and try on the one you think is right first. Our normal returns policy applies.

Which size do you recommend for each breed?

This is not an exhaustive list, and every dog is different, so we would still recommend measuring to make sure you order the right size, however, the below recommendations can be a good guide:

Whippet Harness - Small, or XS for smaller whippets

Greyhound Harness - Medium, or Large for bigger greyhounds

Lurcher Harness - Small, Medium or Large, lurchers really do come in all shapes and sizes :)

Italian Greyhound Harness - XS

Saluki Harness - Medium, or large for bigger salukis

Puppies - Likely an XS or Small, but we recommend measuring and being aware of how much they're likely to grow. If they're close to the next size up it may be worth ordering the larger size so that they can grow into it.

Can this sighthound harness be used with a coat?

Absolutely! Many owners choose to put the harness on over the coat and that works great!

If you'd prefer it to go under the coat, you'll need to make sure that your coat has a harness hole in the right position. We're happy to recommend some!

Can my sighthound escape from this harness?

It is virtually impossible. Our escape proof harness features a unique three-strap design, including a secure third strap.

This third strap tucks behind the chest so that it physically cannot slide forward which makes it escape proof, perfect for houdini dogs.

Is this harness comfortable for extended wear?

Absolutely! The padded design, including the chest piece and belly straps, ensures optimal comfort, making it suitable for both short walks and longer adventures.

The perforated material helps keep your dog cool in summer months.

I'm worried my sighthound won't like wearing a harness?

That's understandable, especially if your sighthound hasn't worn a harness before, but let's put your mind at ease.

So far this hasn't been an issue with any of our customers.

Most are happy right from the get go, but some sighthounds can take a minute to warm up if it's different to what they're used to, but the harness is really comfortable and they'll soon forget that it's even on!

In the unlikely event that your dog is taking longer to adjust, we have this handy blog post to help out :)

Is this harness suitable for cross breeds?

Absolutely! The harness is really adjustable so you'll be able to get it to the perfect fit for cross breeds too :)

How adjustable is this harness?

Our harness offers five points of adjustment, allowing you to customise the fit for your sighthound's unique body shape, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit.

Does the harness restrict movement?

Not at all! The slim chest piece design allows for unrestricted movement, providing your sighthound with the freedom to walk, run, and play comfortably.

Will this harness rub my sighthound?

No, we've taken measures to ensure it won't rub your dog.

The chest piece is slim and the strap that goes underneath leaves plenty of room between the pits / arms. The chest strap is far enough back that this also won't rub the pits / arms, and you can adjust how far back this goes to ensure a comfortable fit.

We've also covered the buckles and padded the straps so these won't rub either.

Is it easy to put on and take off?

Absolutely! The harness is equipped with quick-release buckles, making it quick and effortless to put on and take off your sighthound.

Is this harness lightweight?

Yes! Despite being made from durable materials, the harness is still lightweight.

XS - 189g

Small - 210g

Medium - 257g

Large - 335g

Can I wash the harness?

Yes, the harness is machine washable for easy cleaning.

Can I use this harness in a car?

Yes you can, however, it does not come with a seatbelt adapter so you will need one of those to secure your dog.

It can be a great car harness for greyhounds, whippets, lurchers and other sighthound breeds.

Are the handles durable?

Yes, the multi-function handles are designed to withstand regular use and provide you with optimal control during walks, no matter the situation.

What makes this harness safer than a collar?

Unlike collars that put strain on the neck, our harness distributes any force across the chest, reducing the risk of injury and providing a safer walking experience for your sighthound.

Is this harness suitable for a puppy?

Yes, this makes a great puppy harness and it is really adjustable so it should allow plenty of growing room for your puppy.

What sighthound breeds is this harness suitable for?

Our harness is suitable for all sighthound breeds, including but not limited to, greyhounds, whippets, lurchers, italian greyhounds, salukis, galgos, podencos, wolfhounds, deerhounds, borzois, afghan hounds, cross breeds and more.

I don't have a sighthound, but I do have a deep chested breed. Is this harness suitable for me?

Yes! We've had orders from non-sighthound breeds with deep chests before and the feedback has been good!

What is a 3 strap harness?

A 3 strap harness, also called a 3 point harness, is a harness with 3 'connection' points.

With a connection point on the front of the chest, around the chest and around the belly, ours is a 3 point harness, designed just for sighthounds.

Is this a non slip dog harness?

Yes, this is a non slip dog harness. Thanks to the third strap, it is almost impossible for the harness to slip forwards, making it an anti escape harness / anti slip dog harness.

We also like to call it a houdini dog harness because it stops even the best escape artists in their tracks!
