I’ve never given any thought before to using a harness vs. a traditional collar when walking my dog. I’ve always had used collars. When the opportunity came up to try a harness for my dog, I thought I’d like to see if it changes our walks at all.
When I got the package, I had to play with the fit a bit. The initial fit was a little loose, then my cocker spaniel got a haircut (shaved) and all of a sudden it was swimming on him. The harness is easy to adjust to make looser or tighter.
My dog needed a little time to adjust to it, he didn’t quite know what to think about it. Just walking around with it on before adding the leash, he seemed a little awkward. I do feel like I had better control of him. He’s only a puller when he sees other dogs or people he wants to greet. The special “martingale – style” leash attachment is what makes this harness unique. This was designed to help with dogs who pull. It sits in between their shoulders for greater control. I’ve actually had a collar slip off before, which is not what you want to happen with other people or dogs around. I had absolutely no worries with this harness. We will continue to practice with this harness, especially when the nicer weather comes around here in AZ!
The harness has reflective features, which is super helpful – especially if you walk your dog early in the morning or late at night. In the summers here in Arizona, that is pretty much the only choice we have if we want to not melt.
Stunt Puppy makes collars, leashes, harnesses and ID collars – all Made in the USA! The harness comes in 3 sizes (S, M, L) and 2 colors (blue or black) and retails for $45. You can shop for Stunt Puppy gear here.
