Harnesses are great for keeping your pet safe during walks. It is much better to attach your dog’s leash to a harness, then it is to a collar, not only for security but for having more control over your canine, just in case they decide to dash off. They come in various shapes and sizes, but not all of them are equally made to suit every breed.
Recently, a new type of harness, called Health Harness, has emerged onto the scene, bringing an innovative and revolutionary approach to the design of this piece of dog-walking equipment. So how is it different than others and what are the benefits of using it? Let’s find out.
What is a Health Harness?
The first of its type, it is specially designed for canines that suffer from Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (BOAS) which constricts the dog’s airway due to their shortened muzzle. The syndrome can place many limitations on one’s pet affecting their mental and physical health, no matter the severity of the symptoms.
Even during mild exercise, breeds like spaniels, bulldogs, boxers, French bulldogs – often referred to as Frenchies – struggle breathing properly, but thanks to this harness, they will be able to go for walks, without experiencing any problems caused by BOAS.
How does it work?
The design of the harness is completely different from any other on the market. Made with double D rings, with the front ring placed on the neck area just like a collar, and dual brass breakaway buckles it enables a safe, no pull and no choke walk, making it perfect for canines with BOAS. The back D ring is great for playdates and casual walks.
What are some other benefits of the Health Harness?
According to Frenchiestore.com, the Health Harness is extremely beneficial for dogs experiencing physical disabilities and mobility problems, and for ones that have had a previous neck, back, or spine injury. It is also used for canines that have vision deficits or for pregnant dogs since the harness puts less pressure on the abdomen.
They are also great for dog training, especially for ones that are very energetic or have dominance or aggression issues. Besides regular dog owners, breeders and rescue organizations use them as well.
The available sizes range from XS to XXL in order to assist many different breeds. For more Information about french bulldog and other bully dog breeds visit American Bully Daily.
Where did the inspiration for designing it come from?
Evan and Sunny Oshan created the harness for their Frenchie pets after he was diagnosed with BOAS and needed surgery for it. They struggled with finding a suitable harness that did not interfere with their pet’s condition. After doing extensive research, they started the engineering and designing of the Health Harness. Since its release, it has helped numerous canines who suffer from the same syndrome, and countless others with various health conditions.
It is clear why the Health Harness is becoming extremely popular and important for many. Not only does it support the overall health and well-being of canines, but also enables the ones with health issues to go for walks and spend time outdoors. It is also great for pet training and helps with creating a better bond between you and your dog.
