APRIL 12, 2021 – There is no such thing as a good collar. Collars can often cause irreversible injuries to dogs. Research shows that the pressure on a dogs neck when they pull on their collar can lead to long-lasting damage. Leash pulling is used for both negative reinforcement and leash correction (no-pull training). This in combination with a collar, results in high amounts of pressure and can ultimately lead to neck injury, discomfort and long lasting pain for your pet.
Alternatively, dog harnesses keep the pressure off of their neck in case your does dog pulls away. Not all dog harnesses are made the same. It is important to know what to look for when looking for in a harness:
1. No-Pull Harnesses – They have a front and back clip attachments for added control.
2. Accurate Sizing – Read the sizing charts and measure pets accurately to ensure a snug and comfortable fit.
3. Build Quality – Select a harness that is made with high quality hardware and fabric. This will impact how long the harness will last.
4. Ease Of Use – Ensure it is quick and easy to put on and take off the harness.
