When walking a dog on the lead, a harness can prove a beneficial way to stop a dog from pulling. Many dogs pull and a harness takes pressure off of the dog’s neck as the connection of the dog’s harness is closer to the dog’s centre of gravity rather than having the dog only attached at the collar. Many dog trainers and competitors as well as pet owners use and recommend the use of harnesses.

Certain dogs are more receptive to being walked with a two-point contact (the lead attached at one end to the collar and the other end to the harness). This method, developed by Tellington TTouch in the USA, is ideal for a dog that naturally pulls and eliminates any perceived need for equipment like choke chains or pinch collars. 

“TTouch leading techniques improve proprioception and balance and so can dramatically improve both posture and the behaviour of the dog. Teaching a dog to walk calmly on a leash using two-point contact - the handler having two distinct connections with the dog, usually with a double-ended leash - can have a miraculous and often instantaneous effect. There are many ways of using a two-point contact, so this leading technique can be easily tailored to suite the individual dog’s needs.”

from Sarah Fisher’s 2007 book Unlock your Dog’s Potential, published by David and Charles

A well fitting harness will be broad enough not to cut into the dog and should not tighten in use. It should sit far enough back so as not to dig in to the dog’s ‘armpits’. When fitted correctly, it should allow the harness to support the dog’s body weight, reducing the damage caused by the dog pulling on its collar and lead.

There should be a buckle on both sides of the body alleviating the need to pick up the dog’s legs – this can cause discomfort to the dog and give a bad association with the harness. 

The harness is currently offered in 8 sizes (*see below)

Each harness has a contrasting girth strap in black, which assists in not showing the inevitable dirt which dogs gather on walks. This girth strap is held completely flat with the use of small pieces of durable elastic; this also holds the fleece in the correct position. This innovative design prevents the adjusters slipping once the harness has been correctly fitted on the dog. Many harnesses on the market today are made with narrow fabrics, which can be most uncomfortable for the dogs to wear; our fleece harnesses are made with a top quality broad fleece with black tape firmly stitched on top.

This broad fleece makes the harness straps very wide and comfortable, preventing sore areas and distributing the dog’s weight over a wider area. All parts of the harness are covered in top quality fleece, giving padding throughout for the comfort of your dog. It is essential for the dog’s comfort that any harness does not ‘give’ when being worn as it could cause the harness to rub against the dog’s body – this has been overcome with this design. These harnesses can be machine washed at a low temperature. We advise against tumble drying as this can cause the fabric to ‘pill’ or shrink. Each harness is British made and quality checked. The TOA team recommend the use of harnesses in conjunction with the Let ‘Em Lead.
