It is the right item for dogs of well obedience, which have slight behavior deviations such as aggression toward strong dogs, strong prey or hunt drive. While there are many tools and techniques for dog behavior corrections such as choke and shock collars and pinch/prong collars, we observe a dog harness as the most humane choice to apply correction acts to your dog if needed. The main base is that the harness will in no way hurt your dog , it will just give an opportunity for you to keep your dog where you want your dog to be situated while using a correct amount of strength.

Attack/ protection training is one of the most popular ways to use a dog harness for training. Well-made durable harnesses may be used for sports, police training, protection training, KNPV training, Belgian and French ring sports. What makes a training harness good is its padding. Padding is essential for a dog’s comfort, strength and durability and therefore the trainer feels safe. Also it balances the pressure from throat/ trachea zone towards the chest zone. A dog training harness, that is well-fitted, helps the dog breathe right and with correct intense training the dog will stay focused longer in the training session. For better control of the dog we offer an option to attach a handle, which is situated on top, to the harness.
