A simple, easy to use product can make walking your dog a much safer experience, especially in urban environments.
Harnesses wrap around a dog’s front legs and chest, providing owners with greater control and security when walking their pets. The critical point is that dogs find them much harder to get out of when compared to collars.
This means that owners are better able to control their dogs in busy urban environments. Cities, for example, can frighten small dogs. If dog collars are loose or worn, dogs can break free. That means owners face the daunting task of trying to recover their pet. Each dog faces the terrifying experience of being surrounded by big monsters such as humans and fast-moving vehicles.
Dog harnesses come in a variety of styles, shapes and colors. They range from basic devices that are plain, functional and inexpensive to ones that colorful, flowery and fashionable.
Basic dog harnesses slip over a dog’s head and neck then fasten on the back after wrapping around the front legs. Leads and leashes are clipped in roughly the same spot behind the neck as with collars.
Step-in harnesses are literally that: the harness wrap around a dog’s legs and chest. A fastener connects behind the shoulders. They do not slip over a dog’s head, which disturbs some pets.
While both types of harnesses provide owners with greater control over their pets, step-in models move the connecting point from the neck to behind the shoulders. Some veterinarians claim this connection reduces stress on a dog’s delicate neck bones.
Some models use a single click-type connector while others use Velcro® style fasteners at two or more points. Unlike collars, though, harnesses are generally not designed to be worn constantly. They also tend to lack the ability to attach critical data such as licensing and contact information.
Harnesses also have a fashion advantage over collars. They come in every color, pattern and style imaginable from pink, blue, black or plaid to frilly dresses and elegant tuxedos.
Designers such as Hip Doggie, Susan Lanci, Sex and the City, Ruff Ruff Couture and others have created dog harnesses that are functional and fashionable.
