Dog Harnesses are also commonly worn by non-working dogs!
A Dog Harness is piece of equipment for dogs, generally similar to harness tack for horses. There are various designs of Dog Harnesses depending on the type of use:
Assistance to a disabled person
Hauling a cart or sled
Pulling a human being, such as in skijoring or pulka
The design of a harness for dogs allows for distribution of force which may prevent choking and a lower chance of slipping out than may be possible with only a collar. Dog Harnesses usage is growing in popularity among many pet owners- especially for those with smaller breed dogs.
Dog harnesses distribute the pressure from the lead or leash better than a standard collar!
