Harnesses are widely used everywhere and they are great. Depending on the style, they can help with pulling, give owners more control and can prevent escape. Fitting dog harnesses correctly is always extremely important and ensuring your dog’s comfort is also a priority (would you wear a badly fit tee shirt/sweater?).  However, if your dog’s harness does not fit properly, it could be causing damage to your dog that you are unaware of until it’s too late.

What are The Dangers of a Badly Fit Harness?

bad fitting harnesses can cause problems for several reasons. Harnesses that don’t fit properly can either cause discomfort if they are too tight or cause rubbing if they are loose and not fitted properly to the dog. When harnesses don’t fit correctly, dogs can manoeuvre out of their harness, which causes an increased risk of the dog either running off or getting into an accident. FItting your Dog Harness Correctly also ensures that when your dog is in your car, it is safe and secure with a seatbelt clip too

What Should You Watch For?

  • Make sure your pup is comfortable moving
  • Sores can develop underneath the armpit area
  • If your dog is being harmed, its movements may not be normal
  • Choking if the harness is too tight around your dog’s neck.
