Benefits of Using a Dog Harness

So now we have reviewed the harness, we will now look at some of the benefits of using one when walking or training your dog.

  1. Less pulling and choking when walking or jogging with the dog.
  2. Handles for more control and easier lifting of the dog.
  3. More leash control over the dog.
  4. Increased comfort for the dog.

Less pulling and choking when walking or jogging with the dog – The chest pice and vest design of most dog harnesses reduces the amount of choking and pulling you will get from your dog when compared to walking him or her with a collar.

Handles for more control and easier lifting of the dog – Most harnesses for dogs have a handle on the back. This makes it easier to control your dog if, for example, it is getting into a fight. It also makes it much easier to pick up and lift the dog, maybe to put it in the car or lift it onto the vet’s table.

More leash control over the dog – Using a harness with a leash gives you much more control over the dog. You can pull against the whole front chest area rather than just the neck or throat.

Increased comfort for the dog – Harnesses are safer and more comfortable for dogs to walk with, especially if they are strong pullers.trufit smart harness reviews

We posted this as we have read on some harness reviews that some dog owners were struggling to get their dog to feel comfortable using the harness while in the car.

Obviously, using the harness for your dog in the car is when it is most essential that you have the fit and the setup right.

Hopefully, this video might help you understand how it works and if it will be suitable for your dog and your car.
