Specialized equipment and calming products help dogs learn, and accelerate their process of feeling calm and confident in our world. A win-win for them and us!
Harnesses provide many benefits. We recommend them for all puppies and adult dogs.
Most importantly, harnesses get pressure off the dog's neck. This decreases the dog's arousal, which makes it easier for them to think and learn. Using harnesses avoids potential damage to dogs' spines from pulling on the leash.
Harnesses make it easier to walk a dog that has any inclination to pull on the leash. They are great for teaching dogs to walk on a loose leash, too..
Lots of benefits!
Whether one lives in the city or the country, we must all put our dogs on leash at some point. We have a variety available that will work for the smallest dog to the largest. Some have special handles. Others adjust in length.
In recent years there have been wonderful advances in harness/leash combinations.
Please call to discuss what works best and is most comfortable for you and your dog.
With advances in harness/leash designs and use, we use head collars much less than previously. But certain circumstances remain where a head collar works very well. Let us show you how to get a dog used to a head collar, and how to use it. They are several important aspects not immediately apparent.
