Generally speaking, a dog harness is a piece of equipment consisting in part of straps that surround the dog’s torso. It is used to guide, hold, and lift the dog for restraint or to utilize its pulling power.
These harnesses generally are made to have both a strap on the chest in front of the forelimbs, and a strap around the torso behind the forelimbs, with straps in between connecting these two. Having a D-ring suitable for pet identification tags and for a leash to clip to is important. They are most often used to restrain an animal, but dogs also particularly wear them to assist a person with a disability or haul people and items (think about sled dogs).
