Harness or collar: which is best for your dog?
Whether a collar or a dog harness is best for your darling can’t be said across the board. If your dog tends to pull on the leash and if the leash is only attached to a collar, the pressure is only distributed over the cervical spine and the larynx – in the worst case this may harm your dog’s health. Puppies and young dogs in particular can have health problems if they pull the leash vigorously to urge to their destination. So, it’s important that your dog learns to walk on a loose leash from the start and is rewarded for it.
If it’s unavoidable in a situation that you simply or your dog pulls on the leash, a dog harness is recommended, as the pulling force is distributed more gently and less pressure is exerted on the sensitive cervical vertebrae, especially during sporting activities or fearful activities A harness is preferable to dogs.
What do I have to look out for when using a dog harness?
With a dog harness, the fit is particularly important. If the straps are too wide or too tight for your fur nose, your dog cannot move freely. The straps must not cut in and should not dwell the folds of the dog’s legs, as they might restrict his movement. On the other hand, the harness must not sit too loosely, otherwise your darling can quickly wriggle out of the harness and endanger himself and his environment. Due to the various setting options of our dog harnesses, this cannot happen to you. In just a few simple steps, you can adapt the dog harness perfectly to your dog’s body.
When buying a dog harness, concentrate to the following points:
- Material: Buy a harness made of soft material. It should be supple, yet robust and hard-wearing
- Padding: additionally, to the material, sufficient padding is important so that the dishes don’t rub and your darling feels comfortable with them
- Adjustable size: Choose a dog harness that’s easily adjustable in size. So you can adapt it to your four-legged friend and prevent the harness from being uncomfortable
- Accuracy: Measure your dog very precisely – this is the only way to find a dog harness in which your fur nose feels completely comfortable.
Measuring instructions for the right fit of your dog harness
Take precise measurements of your dog before you decide on a harness so that the model fits perfectly and doesn’t chafe or pinch. Use a flexible tape measure and measure the following parts of the dog’s body:
- A: First measure the circumference of your dog’s neck, it must not be too tight but also not too loose
- B: Measure the dog’s waist circumference a hand’s breadth behind the front legs, or at the point where your dog’s chest is widest.
Using the two values determined, you can then choose the right size of the dishes. The models in our shop can all be adjusted on the belly strap, sometimes even several times – so the HUNTER dog harnesses adapt perfectly to the body of your fur nose and offer optimal comfort.
Which dog harness for which purpose?
At HUNTER you’ll find a large selection of models for several occasions. It doesn’t matter whether it’s sporting activities with the dog, on the dog park or in your free time.
The lead harness is one among the classics among dog harnesses. It’s popular because of its wide selection of adjustment options and is available in two versions: as Y-harness or H-harness. The structure is analogous in both variants: A chest bar and a back bar extend from the neck. The chest bar runs through the dog’s front legs and ends in a waist belt that connects the back belt with the chest belt. Depending on the variation of the harness, the formation of the back bar differs – either Y or H-shaped. The pressure that’s transferred to the harness by the pull on the leash is distributed differently on the dog’s body depending on the type of harness. The Y-harness is usually even closer to the dog’s body. Slipping out is (almost) impossible.
The Norwegian harness is particularly popular with dog owners because of its easy handling: the harness is pulled over the top, locked – done. Dogs in particular who feel restricted in movement by the bridge between the front legs of the harness will love the Norwegian harness. Here the breast bar runs horizontally along the breast. We locked the Norwegian harness on the torso strap, which runs along the chest. There’s usually a practical holding loop on the back of the Norwegian harness.
Some of our dear fur friends have a fearful disposition and panic at loud noises or street noise. We recommend a special panic harness so that you protect your dog and your environment in these situations. This is equipped with a further waist belt, which prevents the animal from wriggling out of the harness by itself.
With a colorful puppy harness you not only conjure up a cute look for your cute little four-legged friend – it also helps to get used to the leash without straining the neck. At CozyPaws you’ll find special dog harnesses for puppies and dog harnesses for small dogs as well as harnesses that are adjustable in size and thus grow together with your dog.
