What is the best harness for a French Bulldog?
Not all dog harnesses are made equal, materials and features vary greatly. You should consider the following when purchasing the best harness for your dog:
Any harness is only as good as the fastener that keeps it together - are the buckles made of plastic or indestructible buckles? Dog accessories
that feature plastic usually come with a written warning in regards to common dog injuries. Not to mention BPA, is a chemical
that is often used to make certain types of plastic can seep
out of the plastic and end up in blood stream.According to an article in Environmental Health News, researchers at
Texas Tech University found that BPA and phthalates (toxins found in
plastic) have been linked to a number of health issues, including but
not limited to: impaired development of reproductive organs and
hormones, decreased fertility and most alarming cancers in humans and
rodents. Though the research doesn’t specifically
mention the effect of BPA on our beloved French Bulldogs, it’s fair to
assume that BPA exposure is harmful. Dogs love to chew
on things, and if your Frenchie chews on BPA plastic, the BPA could get
into their system. Even if your Frenchie in not a chewer, BPA can still
get in their blood stream just by having them wear it daily.
Are the buckles breakaway to release in case of an emergency? Breakaway buckles prevents injuries or strangulation.
Is there a front D ring and a back D ring?
A front leading harness can be beneficial for dogs with mobility issues
or dogs with aggression and dominance issues.
Are dog harnesses better than collars? Using a dog harness instead of a collarreduces the chance of injury or strain on the dog's neck and back. In addition a dog harnessmakes it easier to control and manage even the most stubborn dogs without harming them in anyway.
How tight should my dog's harness be? The harness should not feel loose however, you should be able to insert two fingers in between the dog's neck and the Frenchiestore Health Harness.
Do dog harnesses encourage pulling? Traditional dog harnesses with only one back D ring doencourage pulling like sled dogs. If you want your French Bulldog to stop pulling you need to use the Front D ring or both D rings for the best results.
How do I stop my dog from pulling when walking? For pullers or multiple dogs we recommend pairing your Health Harness with the Health Leash for the best results.Connect to the front and the back of Frenchiestore Health Harness simultaneously - this configuration creates a 4' long leash and provide the owner additional control points and evenly distributed motions.
