I’m a big fan of rucking. If you are not familiar with rucking, it is very similar to hiking with a pack. The only thing that really changes is the focus. When we ruck, we wear a heavy pack at walk as fast as possible; with a specific goal in mind. I enjoy rucking with various groups of people. But the one being that I get out there with the most is my dog Sombra.
Sombra has been rucking with me for over a year now. It was time to challenge him a bit more by adding his very own kit or dog harness to his gear list. It’s about time that he starts carrying his own weight around here. 😉
I searched the Internet and knew that I wanted a harness that was MOLLE comparable. This way, I can affix all sorts of things to Sombra’s harness. This gives me flexibility on various types of outings and also makes it easier to get him more challenged during our rucks. I came across a harness by Auroth Pets and liked what I saw. I ordered the Woodland Camo pattern and waited for it’s arrival.

  • Molle System Use: Two 1″ strips of Molle Sewn on both sides, allow your dog to carry gear in training. A wide range of use for personal service, law enforcement, hunting, or outdoor recreation. (Included ID Badge – BEST FRIEND ). It compatibles with Molle /PALs Pouch, so you can also hook dog bowl, water bottle and toys(No included).
  • MAXIMUM CONTROL & SECURITY: Our safety harness features 2 metal leash attachment points to dog walks safely – One front clip for No-pull control or dog training, and the other one back clip for casual walking or jogging.

I received the harness in the mail and it was a breeze to adjust and put on my dog. I grabbed a couple of MOLLE compatible pouches and affixed them to Sombra’s new harness. I threw my rucksack on and we headed out to break in my dog’s new harness.

We rucked about 5 miles at a 16 minute pace. It was warm but Sombra handled it incredibly well; like the athlete that is his. I did add 4lbs worth of sand to the pouches that I attached to his vest. Let’s just say that he was a happy but tired pup, after the ruck.


If you need a good hiking harness for your dog, definitely take a look at this one by Auroth. It has performed well and so far, I have no complaints.
