Currently there are many types, sizes and shapes of harnesses, in this blog we will explain the ones that best suit your dog, their characteristics and when to use them.
What are the best harnesses?
The best harnesses are adjustable , the more areas that can be adjusted, the better. For example, neck and chest. It is important that it fully adapts to the dog's body, so we can have better control over it and it will feel more comfortable.
There are different shapes of harnesses, the best are in the form of H or Y.
The main feature of both is not to condition the movement of the dog and not create any discomfort. We have to be very careful when choosing a good harness as a bad choice can greatly restrict the natural movement of the dog, its muscles and bones, it will affect health and make walks somewhat uncomfortable. That discomfort will return to us turned into jerks, nervousness and even aggressiveness problems.
As for the material, the best ones are neoprene and nylon . Although there are also cotton, leather or polyester ones, we do not recommend these because they are more likely to get damaged, and if something characterizes dogs it is that they love to interact with everything: trees, walls, stones, mud, water...
It must also be taken into account that depending on the fabric it can cause allergies. This happens a lot with nylon. When manufactured, the threads that are joined to form the straps are then dyed in the color requested by the client. This means that the material may have a poor quality as the dye does not distribute well through the nylon, causing some areas to accumulate and facilitate an allergic reaction to contact. For this, the manufacturer has to use hypoallergenic materials to avoid a problem on your dog's skin.
Neoprene is a very ergonomic fabric that adapts perfectly to the body. We use this fabric and in the shape of an H. Our harnesses are soft, smooth, comfortable and insulating. They have the following characteristics :
