There is no doubt that dogs are the animals closest to mankind. They have been involved in supporting their owners’ work for thousands of years, which is why the need for equipment arose pretty early on. But how did we get from the “pulling harness” to the urban dog harness?
JULIUS-K9® is fascinating success story, made in Hungary. The company started back in 1997, and from a small business operating in a 15m2 garage became one of Europe’s leading dog accessory manufacturing brands.
Dog harnesses are usually used for daily walks, but many use them during excursions too. Just like we need the right shoes for a walk in the forest, we need to choose the right harness for our dogs.
The print and online magazine that was founded in 1933 in New York focuses on Hungary in its latest country report. We were very happy to be interviewed by Regional Director Marie Leclercq. Hopefully, this is the initial step of a long-term cooperation project…
The Julius-K9® IDC®Longwalk harness and its flexible system have won a prestigious innovation award following several other international awards. This time, the Hungarian Association for Innovation assessed the application “Biomechanical solution for the protection of joints” as of outstanding significance.
The JULIUS-K9® chest harnesses (Powerharnesses and IDC®Color&Gray® belt harnesses) have been designed for ease of use and for simple application. These types of harnesses are therefore most commonly used during city walks or when working with service dogs. As a result of improper leash use, sizing, or harness adjustment, some dogs can still wriggle out of the harness.
The coronavirus pandemic is raging around the world. There are many, many people working from home at the moment, and this has a major impact on your pet’s everyday life, especially if your dog has always stayed at home before while you went to work.
We are past some difficult months due to the coronavirus pandemic and do not know what to expect for the rest of the year. Our company has tried to respond dynamically to the changes, and to that end, we have donated nearly 2,000 IDC®Pure harnesses in the first months of the pandemic to make dog walking safer.

JK9® has more than 150 partners worldwide and all of them are doing a great job representing our company and products. Our South African partner, Pet Bound Co. is a really special one because above that they work closely with Anti-Poaching Units in South Africa. The rangers and dogs have close bonds and put their lives on the line daily to protect our wildlife.
