Five Tips for Choosing a Safe Dog Harness
Here, from Andy, are tips on how to choose a harness that is safe, comfortable, and secure:
-Make sure harness is made of a strong and durable material such as high quality mesh, nylon, and Velcro
-Purchase a harness with reflective nylon tape for high visibility
-Measure by weight and size for a precise fit; dogs can easily get out of a harness that is too big.
-Look for harnesses that have been strength and size tested on all breeds; weight is more important than neck measurements when finding the best fit
-Check that the stitching is intact and that hardware such as buckles are not dented
Choosing an appropriate harness design is also an important consideration. K9Wear’s “Everyday Harness” step-in design is safer for a dog’s neck, distributing leash pressure across the chest and shoulders. It is easy to put on and perfect for dogs who tend to pull.
