The dog harness is the most reliable and secure way of controlling a dog whilst walking. Dog harnesses for all breeds of dogs, no matter if they are small, medium, or large dogs, are more animal friendly than the usual leads which most pet owners use.

Dogs leads are very flimsy and many dogs have been known to chew through the lead if left unattended outside a store. Leads use control methods such as choking the dog when it tries to walk fast or run after another pet pooch. Dog harnesses do not use this type of method to control the dog whilst out walking, as choking the pet is actually torture, can be painful, and is really not very nice.

Dog Harnesses Vs' Leads

Escaping Dog

Most pet owners know that a dog can slip its' lead and collar on occasions, especially if the dog is determined to get away, many times usually after a cat or another dog. This is dangerous and in many states and countries can now incur a fine for not keeping the dog on a leash. Dog harnesses do not have this problem. They are easy to put on ( although slightly more difficult to put on than a lead ) will stay firmly on the animal until the human pet takes it off.

Choking The Dog

A harness for a dog is not wrapped around the dogs neck, but around the shoulders and the chest areas. This is where the main 'pull' will put the pressure on the shoulder area rather than choking the animal into submission. Dog harnesses are the animal friendly solution, and your dog will love you to bits for not actually trying to choke him or her to death.

Dog Control

No human likes being told what to do, especially if somebody has their hands wrapped around your neck squeezing the life out of you. It would be better if they used other more kinder persuasion to get you to do something. Dogs are the same, treat them like animals, and that is how they will react, treat them kindly, and they will respect you and also be happier as well as be more inclined to obey your wishes, whilst they take you for your walkies. Harnesses for dogs are your way of saying ' I love you' to your friend for life.

Car harnesses for dogs are simple to fit to the car and the pooch. There are different sizes for all breeds of dogs as one size does not fit all.
