A french bulldog makes the most ideal pet. It is great with kids, is a fun, cuddly lap dog, does not bark as much as the other small dogs, is very talkative, is extremely affectionate, and requires much lesser exercise than other dogs. If you own a Frenchie, you must know how playful yet stubborn they can be. These little furry companions can be full of energy and also a little handful at times, and therefore, the best present you can get them is a sweet harness. Harness vests are the best option for little pups as simply a collar might give them trouble breathing or make them prone to injury as they play. A lot of the harnesses that will be mentioned below are actually suitable for all types of small dogs, but absolutely ideal for a french bulldog.
Here are some things you need to keep in mind before buying a harness for your frenchie:
- A dog harness is the safest, most harmless and comfortable way to gain control and restrain your dog. It helps divide the pressure of the weight evenly so that there is no strain on your dog’s neck and back. Many delicate structures are located in the neck region such as the wind pipe, the spinal cord, the thyroid gland and the food pipe. Pressure on these structures can cause many problems such as choking, neurological problems and thyroid diseases in your beloved little one. So, it is always advisable to choose a harness and leash instead of a collar and leash combination.
- A dog harness is better than a dog collar as it helps in better controlling the dog while going on walks, hikes or playing with other dogs, and it is especially so in smaller dogs as they are tinier and are full of energy.
- Harnesses demoralize The Dog from pulling, unlike a dig collar. So it makes your job of taking it out for walks a little more simple and easy on your arms and shoulders.
- A harness comes with different attachment points for a leash, so always make sure that you are selecting a harness with many different options, or one with the knowledge of where it’s rings are situated so that it can be ensured that it is where your puppy feels the most comfortable.
- A mesh harness, a vest type harness, a chest plate harness and a strapped harness are the best types of harnesses that you can buy for your french bulldog pup.
- A french bulldog’s body shape is unique, as it has a large chest and tapered body, so buying a harness that is specifically designed to contour its body shape is always a wise decision.
- Always keep in mind to buy a harness that is of the very perfect size so that it is snug enough to not escape, but also has room enough for a growing puppy and also for air circulation.
- The choice of harness material is very important as it decides the harness’s comfort and breathability factor. The best materials to look out for are nylon, polyester, neoprene, cotton and mesh fabric.
- Other features to consider in a harness are the adjustability, padding, no pull, no choke features, and reflectivity to ensure maximum safety and comfort of your fur buddy.
