The requirement for a harness suitable for big dogs is quite different. The pulling force of a large dog creates completely different demands on the materials and the shape of the breastplates. We had three years of intense development before we came up with the Belka breastplate. The placement of the buckles and choice of material took into consideration the complexities of the strain of a pulling dog and the stress the materials will need to endure because of that. Next, we had to make sure that the harnesses allow the dog freedom of movement, while making sure the handler remains in full control. In order to achieve this, we placed eyelets in the front and the rear - the front for more direct commands and the rear for more athletic activities. The Belka Harness is named after one of the first two dogs to go into outer space and return safely to Earth, as part of the Soviet space program in 1957.
