Dog & Puppy Harnesses
Dog harnesses can be used for walking or travelling in a car safely. A dog harness will work best for walking small dogs and puppies, as it gives you more control of them. With larger dogs, you may need to use a halti head harness to keep control of them. Legally, your dog should be restrained in a car, this is for the safety of your dog and passengers. Dog car harnesses are easy to use and can also be used for walking. If you are walking your pet at dusk or night, a reflective dog harness may be a good idea, as it will allow you to be visible to cars and bike riders. Dog head harnesses can be used for training, these can be found in our dog training section. Buy the best dog harnesses online.
Using a Dog Harness
Safety is very important when going out for walks with your dog. Even a well-behaved dog might be prone to running across the road unexpectedly. Just the sight of a cat can be enough for them to react and put themselves in harm’s way.
While a dog lead will help to keep them under control, dogs can occasionally slip out of them if they really want to. A walking harness, however, will wrap around your dog more effectively, helping to make sure that they cannot give you the slip. Dog harnesses are generally attached at the front or at the back, with those that are attached at the front giving greater control.
Harnesses are also popular because they are not like a dog collar which can cause your dog some discomfort and even cause them to choke. This is especially the case in smaller dogs with slender necks.
For troublesome dogs that tend to pull a lot that you need more control over, a head collar could be just what you need. These harnesses go around your dog’s head, giving greater control over their movement. They are ideal for training boisterous pooches for less restrictive collars and harnesses at some point in the future. When driving, it can also be necessary to secure your pooch to prevent them from impeding the driver. A dog car harness will also offer your pet some protection in the case of an accident.
