The purpose of collar
Collar is certainly the most traditional approach when it comes to walking and training dogs. It is convenient to slip on and off and are handy because they can hold your pet’s identification, rabies, and license tags. It also restrain the pet from running away.
What’s the benefit of harness
Harness is an effective training tool for puppies and those that pull and lunge excessively. They provide better control over your pet because it discourages pulling and jumping. It can also be a wonderful addition or alternative to a collar for pets with medical conditions such as collapsing trachea where pressure on their throat can lead to other concerns and for dogs like pugs, who risk their eyeballs protruding from the sockets if too much pressure is put around their neck. Besides, harnesses can be extremely useful if you walk more than one pet at once and need complete control over them at all times. Finally, a major advantage of the pet harness is that it is unlikely to come off accidentally.
Are Harnesses Ideal for Every Pet?
While there’s no reason to avoid a pet harness, some animals dislike the feeling of it and will need some time to adjust. If you’re planning on using a harness with your dog, starting early is the best option. Harnesses are also not a replacement for collars, because one of the main uses of a collar is to carry identification. Even if your pet is microchipped, he should always wear an ID tag with contact information.
Collars vs. Harnesses: Which is Best?
Just like people, pets come in different shapes and sizes with varying needs and personalities. What works best for one may not be ideal for another, it depends on the individual needs of you and your pup.
