A Petsafe Easy Walk Harness
Dogs have been man’s friends since their evolution based on the dog’s advanced social skills. This could have developed from the fact that Dogs hunt in packs. They have a biting restrain based on this social behavior unlike other animals.
Need for Harness
Dogs, being a naturally playfulness have a tendency to wander off at the slightest excitement when walking the dog. The tendency to wander off and probably get missing is what led to the development of the harness. The harness just as the name implies is meant to give the advantage of a hold on the dog so that the dog will not take off at the slightest throw of a ball or the sight of a bird.
The traditional harness has an attachment to the dog on the backside of the harness just right after the neck base. The dog is usually very comfortable with this, in fact too comfortable that it can still make attempt to dart off suddenly and end up dragging the holder along with it. Though there is a leash fixed on the dog in this way, but the leash is not attached to advantage for the guide. The traditional leash harness has this lapse hence, the easy harness. Though there are times this type of leash are desirable but for certain age range, it is advisable to use a front leash which will make control of the canine much easier in even or walking.
This type of harness is well designed such that while being comfortable for the canine, it is also removing the tendency of the dog to drag the holder along. This is based on where the main harness handle is attached on the dog. The attachment comes just at the base of neck/beginning of chest region in front underneath, as the dog is a 4-legged animal. This makes it very easy to steer the dog in case of a wander attempt. The dog point of attachment of the holder will always cause a pivotal turn, hence distracting the canine from the source of the excitement for a moment with the smallest of energy exerted. In this case, walking the dog is made so easy that even a toddler or a 100-year-old grandma could walk a bulldog with ease.
Harness Fit Determination
In the determination of the harness that best fit the dog, the chest girth measurement is taken round from the back of the neck through the back of the fore leg. The easy walk harness is a 3 way strap. The first strap is the shoulder strap that passes right behind the back of the dog. Then the belly strap that fits right through the under chest of the dog just behind the front legs while the third strap passes right through the front chest and has the point of attachment. The harness is then adjusted for the chest girth using the shoulder/belly strap adjustment.
Unlike other type of easy harness, the EZWalker is unique in that it has a special attachment loop/strap that is changeable as either a front leash or a pull harness. There are some instances when the pull harness is desirable, at such times, the EZWalker will just fit perfectly by passing the forth loop over the shoulder.
