The reasons for using an anti pull dog harness are numerous. For large breeds, pulling may mean your pet can potentially get away from you. This creates stress and a potential dangerous situation. Breeds like Malamutes and Huskies have instincts to pull and it can be difficult in training them to ease up on the leash. Anti pull dog harnesses can help ease the burden on you and your pet.
Pulling can also result in injury. Either acute, immediate injury or painful wear and tear wounds that occur after long periods of pressure on the trachea or other sensitive areas can occur. Smaller dogs are particularly susceptible to this type of damage and can benefit greatly from an anti pull dog harness.
The Premier Easy Walk Dog Harness from Premier-Pet-Products is perfect for larger breeds. A two toned design helps to easily identify which strap goes over the shoulders and which goes under the dog. Soft and sturdy nylon will tighten across the lower chest and discourage your dog from pulling. Reviewers love this product and give it high praise for being highly effective in discouraging poor walking etiquette.
The Freedom No-Pull Dog Harness from Wiggles Wags Whiskers has a unique design that can be utilized by either clipping the leash on the back or at the chest.
