What Are Harnesses?
Because they aren't used as much as traditional collar and leash combinations, many people are confused on the purpose of harnesses and how they work. Even if you don't know what a harness is, chances are you've seen a Chihuahua or some other dog wearing one at some point or another. From far away, it's easy to mistake one for a regular collar, especially on small dogs. So, what exactly is a harness? If you're wondering what these devices are and what benefits they provide, keep reading.
Basically, a harness is a strapped piece of equipment that wraps around a Chihuahua's body to provide a secure area for a leash attachment. Instead of hooking a leash up to their collar (which can be painful), you can attach it to the harness. This allows you to walk them safely around the yard, park or anywhere else you please without the threat of them running off. While some owners may simply allow their Chihuahuas to run free without a leash, this isn't recommended simply because there are too many potential predators and threats that may harm them. Besides, there are leash laws in a number of jurisdictions throughout the country. The bottom line is that you need to keep your Chihuahua on a leash when you aren't in a fenced in area, and a harness provides a safe and effective way to accomplish this.
Sled dogs almost always use harnesses to gain more leverage and pulling power. Wearing one naturally lowers their center of gravity and gives them more power when pulling a load behind them. Harnesses for sled dogs are usually broken down into three different categories - H-back, X-back and freight harnesses. While there are some notable differences between them, they all serve the same basic purpose of keeping the sled dog securely attached without straining their neck.
Benefits of Using a Harness
There are several benefits to using a harness over a collar, but unfortunately many owners overlook this option. Before making the decision to use a collar on your Chihuahua, you should familiarize yourself with some of the benefits associated with harnesses. Let's take a look at a few of the reasons why you should use a harness...
- Harnesses allow you to safely control your Chihuahua without the risk of them injuring their neck. Some Chihuahuas tend to pull and tug when they are being walked on a leash and collar. While this may not seem like a big deal, the excessive force placed on their neck can damage their neck and throat. Harnesses are perfect for Chihuahuas exhibiting this type of behavior because they spread the pull force throughout their body instead of it being concentrated on their neck.
- Another advantage that harnesses have over collars is that they tend to stay more securely around a small Chihuahua's body. I think most owners have experienced their Chihuahua slipping out of their collar. If the collar is too large for their neck, it's naturally going to slip out when they begin to pull on it. Thankfully, this isn't a problem with harnesses, as they connect around their body and (usually) two front paws.
- A lesser-known benefit that comes with using a harness is the additional element of style. After shopping around for clothes and harnesses to add to your Chihuahua's wardrobe, you'll probably notice how some harnesses are built directly into shirts or sweaters. This allows your Chihuahua to look cute and adorable while giving you the ability to keep them securely attached to a leash.
- Chihuahua harnesses are generally more comfortable to wear than regular collars. The fact is that Chihuahuas can't talk to tell us when they are uncomfortable or in pain, so it's up to us as their owner to look out for the signs. As you can expect, wearing a tight collar wrapped around their neck all the time can become quite uncomfortable. Removing it and replacing it with a harness, however, is a more comfortable alternative that will still allow you to keep your Chihuahua attached to a leash.
Choosing a Chihuahua Harness
It's easy to feel overwhelmed when confronted by such a wide variety of Chihuahua harnesses. However, you should take the time to choose the one that's most tailored to fit your Chihuahua's specific needs. Every Chihuahua is unique and different is his or her own way; therefore, some harnesses will work better than others. So, how do you know which harness to choose? Start by identifying the needs of your Chihuahua. If they tend to pull aggressively when you are walking them, then it's a good idea to stick with a no-pull harness. If you're just purchasing a harness for the style factor, then you'll want to choose one with a sleek design that will naturally say something about your Chihuahua. Take these factors into consideration when shopping for a new Chihuahua harness to help find the one that's right for your canine.
