Harness

Choosing between a collar or a harness is another thing that puts dog owners in a bind. We would say that it is at the same level as deciding whether to put a fence or let a dog roam free, and preferring one between a nail clipper and a nail grinder over the other. But we will answer this one for you right away: it depends. It is an unsatisfactory answer, we know. But unfortunately, when it comes to collars or harnesses, there is no one size fits all.

The choice really depends on your dog, and honestly, it may take some trial and error before you find the perfect harness. There are features that should address hyperactivity in your dogs, and harnesses built with age and breed in mind. Comfort is also an issue here because you do not want to restrain your fur baby so much, just have more control so that they don’t end up anywhere unpleasant or hurt you. Harnesses have their advantages, but it is important to observe your pet’s reaction towards it.

If, after careful deliberation, you have settled on the harness, then here is where we come in—we will discuss everything related to it on this page.

There are the advantages to point, especially when it comes to training dogs to lead the way or stay out of trouble, such as avoiding cars or crowds. It is harder to wriggle out of a harness than a collar, which is especially useful if you have a clever pet. For certain dogs, like those with short noses, a harness proves to be better for breathing. We have articles that explore these so you end up being an informed dog and harness owner.

We’ll also touch on the different styles available, because harnesses are not made equally. Some are simple but efficient on some breeds, others prioritize comfort for the dog or security for you. There are also times when it is best to go about without them, especially when you consider that these are still foreign to the dog and could affect their fur and their comfort. Need a guide to sort out the overwhelming number of choices there are? Stay tuned for our reviews, comparison articles and harnesses for the best situations. There is everything is for every dog on here, so why don’t you stay and look around?
