All About Using a Dog Harness
Harnesses are a great option for dog owners who are seeking an alternative to the standard collar. Whether your beloved pooch has been a leash puller from day one or you've recently started training a new furry companion, you'll find that a harness will provide the extra security and support that you need.
Because a harness fits around your dog's body, the force is distributed evenly. This means that when you pull or direct your dog, there's no resulting strain or tightening of his neck and throat muscles. This is especially important in smaller dogs who are at greater risk for trachea and respiratory issues. This added security also helps to prevent skeletal and muscular injuries.
When purchasing a standard collar, many dog owners have a difficult time choosing the correct size. A collar that's too small will not only be uncomfortable for your pet, but it may even create pressure on his windpipe, restricting his breathing. A collar that's too loose, on the other hand, quickly becomes a safety concern for dogs who have mastered the art of wiggling out of their collars and running away. The harness eliminates this sizing issue altogether and provides you with far more control. After all, it's important that when you take your dog for a walk, he isn't the one walking you!
Previously, there was only one style of harness available, and it was less than ideal due to a confusing number of straps which often made it difficult for dog owners to adjust. Fortunately, however, this style has been updated and simplified. Now, all you have to do is hold the harness underneath your dog, and allow him to step right into it. It's quick, easy, and comfortable for both you and your pet. You can also opt for a vest harness. Vest harnesses further protect the neck and throat muscles.
Plus, if you like your dog to have a bit of style, they're trendy too. Some harnesses use velcro closures for a snug and comfortable fit. You can also choose between a wide variety of materials, from mesh to leather.
No matter which style you end up choosing, you'll find that the added support and security of your dog's new harness has you grabbing his leash and heading out the door for a fun, relaxing walk with your best friend.
