Harness help?

Postby Cynderstaffyx » 19 Sep 2016, 18:59

So I,m new to flyball my eldest dog Cynder went for her first lesson yesterday yay!
But I noticed that all the other dog wear harness kinda felt out of place our club prefers dogs to wear them too Cynder wears harness sometimes on walks but it need replaced so I being looking around local areas that sell them the fleece style as they look comfy and Cynder can pull hard don't want her to hurt herself but at the same time I'm woundering if there any point she not hard to catch and you want them revd up and pulling to go
So to harness or not to harness err confused

So I found two local ones
(like there custom sized both dogs are odd shape,all the colours,price is expensive but if it better I,m will to pay'might stress Stella needs muzzled when measure I hate to stress her if the harness turns out rubbish)

And

The dog games harness at our local vet (cheaper,quick trip down vet,less stress on Stella as she won't need measured she shy due to a bad start in life)

I had a fleece Cosydog harness for my Lab but she managed to back out of it too many times so I resorted to a Ruffwear Webmaster harness.

My other dog doesn't do flyball but he wears a Perfect Fit harness from Dog Games, it comes in 3 parts so that you can get the best possible combination to fit his size. It has a front and back ring to clip a double ended lead on 2 points of contact.

Some dogs can easily be held on a collar but my girl bounces around like Tigger so I need something substantial to keep hold of her.

I am also new to Flyball so I can't make reccomendations based on that, but my collie Foxy has always wore a dog games harness when we competed in herding. As soon as we would put it on here she would calm down and realize what she needed to do and seemed very happy about it.
