Harness vest is a popular dog product, because it can be dog clothing vest and also a harness which can protect dog’s body and act as a collar. Better than a collar, it could be comfortable for both of you and your dog because the leash could just be easily placed at the back of your pooch and no longer around his neck like collar would.
Having a harness vest would really make dog look smart and decent. There are lots of harness vest in the market with different sizes and designs in order to suit the needs of your dog. To choose a nice and adjustable dog harness vest is benefit to dog’s health and also make him good-looking.
First, I would like to talk about the types of dog harnesses. While dog harnesses pretty much all function in the same way, there are still in many different types such as vest harnesses, step-in harnesses, and built-in leash harnesses. Vest harness encloses a majority of the torso in fabric and typically held closed with straps which most often used with smaller dog while step-in harness is easy for dog to wear it and less risk of the dog being chocked. Built-in harness can be found in a variety of harness types, such as in a step-in or a vest harness.
Secondly, fabric is a factor of choosing the harness. Harness made of flimsy materials will not last long on a large dog but might work just fine on a small one. Thicker, more robust materials are fine for large dogs but might be too confining and stiff for a smaller dog.
Thirdly, corners of the harness, where they go around the joints, especially the dog’s front legs, are also an important consideration. Rounded corners as these are the best ones especially at the neck, arms, and around the strap areas. Besides, make sure to properly center the D-ring, where the leash attaches. The strap where it attaches should run the length of the back, be stitched under the neckline and reinforced to assure a good, steady hold when walking the dog.
While pet owner can take their dog with them to a pet store to try on different-sized harnesses, when purchasing dog supplies online, make sure to find the correct size before purchasing.
