We've been working the team at Stunt Puppy for a while on this harness, trying to figure out the best mix of fabrics, design, functionality and Stunt-Puppy-ness. We didn't just want a harness that was for dogs that don't function well on a collar; we wanted a harness that made being out with your dog safer and more comfortable for everyone involved.
We had a pretty big list of things to cover off, and By-George, we think we've cracked it!
We think you'll dig
Designed for the best comfort and fit across a range of body shapes, taking the pressure off soft tissues while holding its position no matter what the end-of-the-leash antics
Lead attachment mimics a martingale-style* collar that helps you teach your dog about pressure-on-pressure-off* and peaceful on-leash walking
Lead attachment is a stainless steel D-Ring fixed to the top of the harness so the lead stays in position no matter what side you walk on
Super comfortable tubular webbing is soft, strong and resists twisting
High visibility 3MScotchlite fabrics on the chest panel for visibility up to 150m in low light
Super durable, super-light and water resistant X-Pac fabric on the front protects the internal padding from getting wet, icky, torn and smelly
No doubts about how it's meant to be put on - there is no inside out, upside down or back to front, nothing to thread, fold back on itself or insert piece A into slot B
Adjust the fit first time, and you're good to go - unless you change your mind in which case the Duraflex™ ratchet buckles make on-the-fly adjustments super-easy

*What Do You Mean By Pressure On Pressure Off?
We're not dog trainers or behaviourists, but we do know a little about minding our doggy manners and being hauled around by your dog isn't exactly pleasurable for you or polite behaviour from your dog.
Pressure-On-Pressure-Off is a way of teaching dogs that a loose lead (pressure off) gets you places, a tight lead (pressure on from pulling) does not. Also known as contrast training it helps dogs understand how their choices help them to get what they want - whether that's your praise, to keep walking forward, to check out that tree or have a treat. Check out Mark Vette's DogZen training tips on contrast training, or Tyler Muto's K9 Connection channel on YouTube for more information on this. It might just change your life ...
