Choosing a collar or harness for walks depends on the individual needs of you and your dog. Scampers have a wide range of harnesses, pop in for a fitting.
When you are out on a walk with your dog they should always wear some form of identification, but it depends on you and your dog’s lifestyle on whether it’s a harness or a collar.
If your dog needs a little assistance getting up in the house or during walks, a harness may be useful if your dog is getting older or injured.
Dogs with respiratory problems or neck injuries also benefit from wearing a harness. Tugging or pulling for these dogs puts extra stress on their windpipe and may start off a severe coughing episode.
Certain dog breeds should be walked with harnesses instead of collars. Pugs for instance should not wear collars as their eyeballs can protrude from their sockets if too much pressure is put around their necks. Harnesses are what we would always recommend for all brachycephalic breeds. Both Rooster & Sardine, our own dogs, walk with harnesses only.
Scampers have a large selection of harnesses, puppy, non-pulling, double attachment, padded, mesh, nylon, convert, waterproof, easy-fit, leather for the large bully breeds and fashion ones too of course.
Pop in to see our full range of harnesses and speak to a Pet Care Advisor if you would like help fitting one to your dog. A safe and secure fit, as well as being comfortable on your dog is very important.
