Hi Shane
Have a look at the Julius K9 Powerharness have heard good things about it.
Also we don't do Tracking instead Lowland Dog train in Groundscenting.
Springer Spaniels don't ever go for walks; they go on their own private hunting expeditions

There are numerous types of tracking harness you can use, my own preference is on the link below, a lot will be down to much much you can afford,

If I was looking for a good quality harness tracking, I would use this site:- http://www.karenswood.co.uk/htm_site/ca ... sses_2.htm

They have supplied equipment to the working trials fraternity for many years.

It depends what type of Groundscenting you like to do. If you thinking of trailing it is important that the dog is able to move the shoulders freely and that the harness has a chest plate, to support a fast and strong scent follower. I hope this helps.
