DOG HARNESS

Keeping your furry buddy safe during a stroll outside can be easy as picking the ideal size for a dog harness. Pick something that doesn’t fit well, and your dog will easily slip out and risk getting knocked down on the road. But the market is saturated with different dog harnesses, so how will I know which is perfect for me? Here’s all you need to know about the different types of dog harnesses and the benefits they offer.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DOG HARNESSES?

Whether a luxury Dog harness or a personalized dog harness, they all fall under a specific category. Below are the various types and styles of dog harnesses;

  • STEP-IN STRAP

The step-in harness is easier to put on and figure out. With two loops, one for each leg, and a back strap which clicks with a leash attachment, the step-in strap are adjustable at the neck, chest and girth. This dog harness gives you more control over your dog. However, it isn’t a good choice for strong pullers. Ensure it’s always adjusted right. When loose on a short-necked dog, it will easily slip over its head.

  • STEP-IN PADDED/VEST/MESH

Though often regarded as a single style, the mesh designs tend to be bulkier than a regular strap. They’re less likely to cause chaffing and make your dog feel much more secure. These harnesses are adjustable at the perimeter, making them an ideal choice for broader-chested dogs like bulldogs, boxers, German shepherds, labs, Rottweilers, dachshunds, and pugs. 

  • OVER-THE-HEAD STRAP

These are a type of figure 8 harness that can be slipped over your dog’s head, then behind their legs, before being clipped at the back. They make an ideal choice for longer-haired dogs as they won’t snag on their fur.

  • OVER-THE-HEAD MESH/ VEST

Like the over-the-head strap, the mesh/ vest designs make an ideal choice for dogs that pull. The middle part is strongly reinforced with webbing that aids in spreading pressure across a larger area when holding back the dog.

  • ADJUSTABLE STRAP

Also referred to as the figure 8 harnesses, these adjustable straps are among the lushest and minimalist harnesses. They’re ideal for all easy-walk dogs, as heavy pullers won’t fit.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DOG HARNESSES

In general, dog harnesses give owners control over their dogs. Though they don’t usually stop a dog from pulling, they help hold them back. When worn on dogs, they spread the forces across a more extensive section of the dog’s body when pulled. This saves them from discomfort and possible damage to their necks. 

In addition, harnesses make a good choice as they’ve less likely to slip off, unlike a collar. They’re perfect for older dogs needing assistance getting up after resting. All that’s required of you is gently pulling them up to give them the extra boost they need to get back on their feet.Don’t miss out on the perfect opportunity to keep your furry friend safe and secure with PERRO’s top-of-the-line dog harnesses!
