DUOMM Dog Harnesses & Leashes
Many pet parents wonder if a collar or a dog harness is better for their pup. In this case, your pet knows best. Whichever option they prefer is the one you should use. However, there are some cases where dog harnesses are more beneficial.
Benefits of dog harnesses
Dog harnesses can be an effective training tool, especially for puppies. No-pull dog harnesses offer better control over your pet, as they do not allow for pulling or jumping when they’re on a leash. Training collars can also help with this. Additionally, dogs with respiratory illnesses or short noses, like Pugs, prefer a dog harness as it keeps extra stress off of their windpipe and allows for more comfortable exercise.
Are harnesses more inconvenient than collars?
Some pet owners worry that a harness could be more inconvenient to get on and off than a collar. However, many models are now step-in dog harnesses that allow an easy on and easy off transition for pets and their owners. Car harnesses are also very convenient for going from the car to the park or trail. While some dogs may still prefer a collar to a dog harness, it’s important to explore the option with your pet. DUOMM's selection to find the right fit for your dog, including patterned, and reflective options.
Dog leashes for training & everyday walks
Looking for a dog leash? Whether you just welcomed a new puppy into your family or you’re just purchasing a new leash for your beloved pal, we have a variety of leashes to suit your needs. There are a few key things to consider, including material, length and the type of collar your pet has.
Choosing the right leash for your dog
In addition to picking a fun color leash, you’ll need to consider the right material. Would you rather a nylon, cotton, leather or cord leash? Leather is durable and holds up well against a strong pull. And nylon is a lightweight material that travels well in a to-go bag. As a pet parent, you can determine which one is right for you. We even have reflective leashes to make you more visible on those nighttime walks around the block.
The right leash is a crucial part of training a new puppy or dog in your home. Pet parents should be equipped with a 6-foot leash in order to properly control your pup. Simply attach the leash to their collar or harness, and don’t forget the training treats and poop bags if you’re leaving the house.
