Using anti pull dog harnesses can prevent back and trachea problems caused by pulling on a dog leash. An anti pull dog harness is different to normal dog collar as the leash connects between the dogs back rather than to the neck. Having the leash in this position also makes it easier to connect do the dog. The use of a dog harness can also help prevent dogs fighting with the leash and twisting due to jumping.
If you require a non pull dog harness for training purposes it assists in giving you more control when in training and encourages trust between the dog and owner.
Using dog harnesses in the car provides safety for the dog as they will be held safely if an accident were to happen. Don’t forget to remove the dog harness after outings to let your dogs skin breathe and reduces the chance of irritation.

Dog Harness FAQs:
Can a harness hurt my dog?
Harnesses are designed to minimise the strain placed on the neck by a normal dog collar-lead by redistributing the control exerted over the upper body instead. This means that any sudden movement is less likely to result in injury, and the owner will have greater influence over the dog’s choices during a walk. It is fair to say, therefore, that a harness is undoubtedly a safer option for all dogs as opposed to a collar-lead, especially for older or more delicate dogs.
Can I leave a harness on my dog all the time?
While you can leave a harness on your dog for long lengths of time, it is not advised. Many dogs will wear their harness whilst on a walk, allowing an owner to keep them safe if necessary. They can also be used in the car as part of a dog-safety belt. However, if a dog is forced to wear a harness for prolonged periods, it may make them feel too warm, too restricted and prevent them from reaching itches which may affect their mood. Depending on the quality of a harness, extended use may also cause rubbing.
How old does my dog have to be to start using a harness?
It is not advised to use a harness on a dog that is younger than eight weeks old. This is because they have grow to a point where a lead or harness will not cause accidental harm due to sudden movements, and have reached a size where a harness will fit without a chance of them slipping out.
How do I know if a harness fit my dog?
To ensure that a harness fits your dog, it is a good idea to refer to the size chart on every product page. A correctly fitting harness should remain relatively tight around the upper body, but not constrictive and must allow for full range movement of the legs during exercise. If you’re dog is comfortable and happy to run around without removing it themselves, it is likely to be a great fit.
For what size dog are harness available?
At Bunty, we stock four different sizes of our harness, starting from a small, all the way up to extra-large. This means that no matter the size of your dog, we’ve got a harness that will fit them without worry.
Can puppy wear a harness?
As mentioned previously, a dog should only wear a harness once they have reached eight weeks old. Unless you are a breeder, it is very unlikely that you will have a dog in your possession that is below this age. If you do, however, wait until the pup is eight weeks old.
Which harness is best for my dog breed?
Most harnesses for dogs have a very similar design – the difference is in the quality of materials. Harnesses from Bunty are made from a range of materials depending on the product. Some are made to be water-resistant, while others offer a high level of visibility to keep your dog safe. The important thing is to make sure that it is strong, comfortable, and offers multiple attachment points for your dogs lead.
