The Insider Pick:

  • After testing some of the top dog harnesses on the market and scouring the reviews, we’ve chosen the Kurgo Tru-Fit Smart Dog Harness as our top pick. It’s well-made, sturdy, and comfortable for your dog to wear.

As a dog owner, one of your primary responsibilities is making sure that your dog gets plenty of exercise. One of the biggest questions dog owners ask is whether to use a collar or a harness. While a collar may work perfectly well, a harness offers some important benefits.

First and foremost, it takes some of the pressure off your dog’s neck and distributes it across his chest and back. A harness also offers an added degree of support and security, plus many harnesses have extra features to reduce pulling and improve control over your dog.  

When it comes to shopping for a dog harness, there are a number of things to consider. You want a harness that is made from high-quality materials to ensure long-lasting durability. However, it should also be adjustable for comfort as well as safety.

There are several different types of dog harness to choose from, some of which are better for small dogs and others for larger breeds. With so many choices out there, you’ll be glad to know that we’ve done the hard work in testing the top harnesses and scouring the reviews to bring you our top five picks.
