For those brush-bounding hounds and off-trail explorers, the Brush Guard is the harness and pack add-on created to provide additional chest and belly protection from abrasion. It’s also a great way to add support when lifting and assisting dogs, and it helps add stabilization for dogs wearing a pack. Hook-and-loop sleeves make it easy to attach the Brush Guard to the compatible harnesses or packs: Ruffwear’s Web Master Harness, Approach Pack, and Palisades Pack.
