Fairfax, Virginia (forpressrelease) February 12, 2019 - Paw Pals, a Northern VA pet sitting company
, recently released a blog that discusses the top dog harnesses on the market in 2019
. These harnesses are safe alternatives to traditional collar leashes and can provide you with more control when your dog is being walked by you or by a dog walking services provider.
Harnesses are designed to help owners whose dogs tend to pull on their leashes when they go for a walk. They are also beneficial for small dogs and puppies whose collars put too much pressure on their necks during walks. The Balance Harness is easy to put on, with six adjustment points and no shoulder restriction, making for a comfortable walk. Ruffwear's Front Range Harness is among the best for controlling pulling. The Perfect Fit Modular Fleece Harness, meanwhile, is made of three individually-purchased sections according to your dog's measurements, creating fewer gaps. Walk in Sync's harness is an excellent choice for walkers who are not used to harnesses, as the leash is made with padded grips that promote loose-leash walking and proper grip. Finally, the Freedom Harness is easy to put on and designed for dogs of all sizes, from extra-small to 2X.
Before going for a walk with your dog in its new harness, take the time to allow your dog to get comfortable with it by giving them an opportunity to inspect, sniff, and touch the harness. Put the harness on slowly and attach the leash, then let your dog walk around the house or backyard with the equipment on to get even more comfortable. When walking, your dog should be at your side, rather than in front of your behind you. Reward your dog for walking in the correct position with treats and praise to reinforce the behavior on each walk.
