About Our Vegan Leather Dog Harnesses
Our leather dog harnesses are made without one key component—leather! Instead, Project Blu’s dog harnesses are vegan-friendly and made from durable Apple Leather, which is produced using apple peels and bio-based polyurethane. These vegan leather dog harnesses are strong, stylish, and durable. In fact, our Apple Leather material is SGS tested and proven to be stronger than traditional leather dog harnesses. These eco-friendly dog harnesses help reduce methane gases and lessen dependence on the cattle industry—a big contributor to deforestation worldwide. Our dog harness vests are handmade and built to have a classic leather look that will turn heads. Matching collars, leashes, and poop bag holders are also available!
Benefits of Project Blu’s Vegan Leather Dog Harnesses
Strength and Durability
Our dog walking harnesses are SGS tested and get top marks for toughness. In fact, our vegan Apple Leather material is more durable than genuine leather. They’re completely waterproof and ready for any adventure in all types of terrain.
Friendly to Animals and the Environment
The making of traditional leather dog harnesses contribute to environmental damage and cattle abuse. But our vegan leather dog harnesses are eco-friendly and made without any animal products. Our Apple Leather is made using a combination of apple peels harvested from orchards in Northern Italy and a bio-based polyurethane.
A Classic, Handmade Look
There’s no point in buying an eco-friendly dog harness if it looks cheap or doesn’t perform. Our sustainable dog harnesses are handmade by Italian artisans and offer a timeless design, quality fit, and exquisite level of detail. They’re accented by solid nickel hardware to complete the overall look.

How to Measure a Dog for a Harness?
To measure a dog for a harness, it’s important to follow manufacturer instructions. For all Project Blu vegan leather dog harnesses, the length measurement will determine which size you should order. To get the length, use a soft tape measure and wrap it gently around your dog’s chest. This should be towards your dog’s “armpits,” behind their front legs. Use this measurement to find the correct size according to our harness size chart. If you don’t have a soft tape measure available, you can use a string and then measure the string with a ruler or measuring tape to get the length.
How Do I Put a Harness on My Dog?
To put a Project Blu dog harness on your dog, first make sure the harness buckle is open. Place the harness opening over your dog’s head and neck. The buckle should fasten around your dog’s chest and the other strap should sit below your dog’s neck. The metal ring should be easily accessible at your dog’s back. Make sure the buckle is secure. If this is the first time putting a harness on your dog, give your pup a treat and lots of praise. Putting on the harness should be a pleasant experience for your dog and creating positive associations early will help make the process easy.
How should a dog harness fit?
Your dog’s harness should fit snugly against their body—not too tight or too loose. Your dog shouldn’t be able to easily step out of it or back their head out of it, and it shouldn’t move and shift around a lot while your dog is moving or walking. You should be able to slide two fingers (in a stacked position) comfortably between the harness and your dog’s body to ensure it’s not too tight.
Are harnesses good for dogs?
Harnesses can help reduce pulling when walking your dog and keep their neck protected from straining and stress. Dog harnesses are designed to distribute your dog’s weight evenly through the chest and shoulders, which can help keep your dog safe on walks and increase your control. They may also be more comfortable for dogs to wear while out on walks. However, ensuring the proper size and fit for your dog’s harness is important.
