I was thinking that if I will buy a GoPro camera, I can afford its necessarily official GoPro dog harness. At last! The day came when I bought a GoPro and as of now, the go pro dog west mount is comfortable for my pooch. A bit old looking now after a year but still strong when in use. Easy to put the camera on his back. Still, I was curious for the other harnesses if budget matters when choosing a dog tech accessory that is why I made this review.

SmilePowo Dog Harness & Mount

Aside from taking good shots in many perspectives, your dog can be easily seen in case he or she will go to dark places, woods or suddenly went outside at night because of the reflective feature of that GoPro dog harness.

Why You Should Get SmilePowo Dog Harness For GoPro

I bought this item because of the reflective feature and I suck in doing DIY when it comes to cutting and sticking tapes.

Why You Should Get Heywean GoPro Dog Harness

With Heywean GoPro mount, a camera is stable and my dog looks like he is comfortable with the breathable air mesh because I did not see any signs that he wants to scratch his fur. At first, I don’t trust the design because I fell that the camera might fall off, but good thing that I was wrong and I won’t need to return it to the seller. For the price, this is a steal. I might get a camera tether soon. Check the current price here.

Kurgo Dog Harness with Camera Mount

Even if you don’t own a GoPro, the Kurgo dog harness & mount fits to some affordable action cameras. The aluminum plates are what makes this product unique and durable compared to the others that have plastic ones. You can read my ultimate review on Kurgo here.

Final Word On the Best GoPro Dog Harnesses With Camera Mounts

Thanks for reading my list. Plan your dog’s adventure spots and feel free to review this list again so you will be able to tell what works best since no product is perfect. Having the original accessory does not mean it is the best. Sometimes, other cheaper brands provide additional comfort and safety feature that you cannot find in the original. But if you just want basic features and create a collection, the official GoPro Dog Harness is the real deal when it comes to compatibility.
