Better control when walking your pet with a dog harness
While many pet owners will opt for the simple leash and collar to manage their pup while out and about, there are many benefits to using a quality dog harness as well.
Excited pooches can be hard to control, especially if they are large. If they are anxious or scared – or want to escape to get to see another furry friend – they can wriggle and writhe around. They can also slip their heads out of a dog collar, posing safety risks.
It is essential to be mindful that even with smaller breeds, injuries can happen. This is where a dog harness comes into play. They offer significant support, safety and control of your pet, which means more prolonged and more enjoyable walks for you both.
When you walk your canine pal with a regular leash and collar, all of the pressure is focused on one point. This can lead to pain for your puppy when they pull on the lead. It also puts pressure on your arms and back. You can eliminate back pain for both of you.
Not only will it give you greater control over your animal, but the pressure is also spread across a more extensive section of their body which helps alleviate the stress on their necks and backs. It also means there is less impact when a larger breed pulls hard on the lead, which will help reduce the pressure on you as the owner.
Prevent trips and falls with a harness for your dog
When pups get excited, standard leads can get tangled up in the front legs, leading to tumbles and another injury risk when you are running or walking at a brisk pace. Unfortunately, your four-legged friend also tends always to find the best way to get this lead tangled around your legs as well.
By having the leash attached to the centre of their back, the risk of the lead getting caught up where it shouldn't is significantly reduced.
A harness for your dog makes training easier
Our range of high-quality products provides an excellent training tool for pups that have not been correctly trained on how to walk correctly when they are out adventuring.
For a start, because the leash now clips onto the back instead of the front of your furry pal’s neck, they are not going to choke themselves and risk tracheal damage. The reduced tangle risk is also going to be helpful as well.
Most puppies will adapt quickly, and you can start using them as a training tool as early as eight weeks. It will make your job teaching them so much easier, and neither you nor the puppy is going to get hurt.
You can find the perfect dog harness online in our range, including options to suit animals of all sizes. You can also shop from various styles and patterns to choose an option that suits both of your personalities the best.
