|I don't know that much about tracking... do you mean that the judges wouldn't let a dog compete because of the harness he was wearing? That blows. I looked up the AKC tracking rule book, all it says is "The dog must wear a harness while tracking. The harness will be constructed of straps of plain, pliable material and will be designed so that there is minimum restriction of the dog’s movement." That leaves it pretty wide open for interpretation, I guess.
From what I've seen, custom harnesses don't have to be expensive, though. I really like the one I got for about 30 bucks. It's kinda fancy, but the same seller also makes plain ones (polypro webbing only, no padding or other bells and whistles) that would probably pass muster. Here's a link to it:
There is also the often-recommended Urban Trail harness that is about 30 bucks. Different design, no bands crossing the shoulder here.
