How to Recognise a Fake Julius K9 Harness

Fake Julius K9 Harnesses are made of cheap materials that have not been tested. These harnesses are increasing in the market and are found on online auction/trading sites such as eBay and Amazon. It's important to understand that even though these products display the Julius K9 Brand name, they are NOT manufactured by the original company in Europe.

Real Julius K9 Harnesses have been manufactured with the highest quality materials and are thoroughly tested to ensure your dog receives a perfectly fitting harness for all activities.

The Julius K9 Logo


Behind the handle, fake Julius K9 products can be found with either no logo, or the independent manufacturer's logo


Original Julius K9 Dog Harnesses have a rubber Julius K9 logo black background, white writing) stitched to the harness. The location varies depending on the size of the harness.

  • Sizes Baby 1 - Mini has the logo stitched directly on the material near the D-ring.
  • Sizes 0 - 4 has the logo attached directly to the loop and push button attachment that closes the handle.

The Julius K9 Buckle


Counterfeit harnesses have no logo on the buckle or has buckles with different symbols. These buckles are often made from cheap plastic and are not tested for durability.


Original Julius K9 Harnesses use self-manufactured buckles that have been tensile tested up to 350kg. You will find "JULIUS K-9" embossed on the buckles, along with the website underneath.

The Julius K9 Quality


The most significant difference between genuine Julius K9 Products and imitation products is the materials used. Although it is hard to tell from only an image, keep an eye out for the following:

  • Wavy edging and stitching - extremely thin material
  • Uneven sewn edge
