Choose the Perfect Harness

February 08, 2016

As with collars, there are many different styles of harnesses to choose from. It can be very confusing when it comes to choosing the best style that would suit you, and your dog's needs. Harnesses can be very helpful when it comes to being able to exercise better control over your dog, for training purposes, or for the overall comfort of your dog.

We have decided to break down the two styles of harnesses that we offer and how to measure for both.

Step-In Harnesses

Our step-in harnesses feature a closure in the back with two d-rings to hook your leash through, as well as one d-ring located at the front of the harness. Step-In harnesses are the most commonly used type of harness but the front-clip d-ring (patent pending) is unique to Danes & Divas® harnesses. Harnesses are useful for small dogs which may be susceptible to tracheal collapse from flat or martingale collars

H- Harness

H-Harnesses look like a sideways "H" when laying flat on a table.
It is basic in function, featuring just three straps: one around the neck, one around the girth, and one to connect the two with a d-ring for the leash! 
These can easily be adjusted to properly fit rabbits, ferrets, and cats! The H-Harness is the safest harness for cats and rabbits as they are not easy to slip out of.
