The Freedom No Pull Harness
The Freedom No Pull Harness is endorsed worldwide by Trainers, Vets, Adoption Groups, and dog walkers everywhere.
The unique patented harness design minimizes/eliminates pulling, neck strain, and the chance of escape. All Freedom harness feature a soft velvet lined girth strap located behind the front legs.
The harness is extremely effective for training and minimizes the effect of pulling for several reasons: (1) tightening effect of the loop on the harness, (2) the location of the loop, (3) the reconfigurable design that allows you to attach to only the back or to the front and back of the harness simultaneously.
When choosing a color please refer to the harness photos rather than the colored dots - the photos are a more accurate representation of the harness color.
Selecting the Correct Size:
MEASURE the circumference of your dog's chest by placing the tape measure all the way around the chest (rib cage), behind the front legs. The tape measure should be flat to the dog, not pulled tight, but not loose. If you do not have a soft tape measure used for sewing, you can use a leash or a string and measure that instead.
If your dog is an adult, a good weight and not expected to gain or lose weight you can use the following GUIDELINES: The Measurement is MOST important when selecting the size. The weight is an approximate guideline.
- X-Small Harness Size (14"-20") Fits a girth measurement of 15"-19.5" and an APPROXIMATE weight of 13 lbs to 20 lbs
- Small Harness Size (18"-24") Fits a girth measurement of 18"-23.5" and an APPROXIMATE weight of 18 lbs to 35 lbs
- Medium Harness Size (22"-28") Fits a girth measurement of 22.5"-27.5" and an APPROXIMATE weight of 30 lbs to 50 lbs
- Large Harness Size (26"-32") Fits a girth measurement of 26"-31.5" and an APPROXIMATE weight of 45 lbs to 80 lbs
- X-Large Harness Size (30"-38") Fits a girth measurement of 30"-37" and an APPROXIMATE weight of 75 lbs to 135 lbs
- 2X-Large Harness Size (34"-44") Fits a girth measurement of 34"-44" and an APPROXIMATE weight of 125 lbs to 200 lbs
If your dog measures 26" and is an adult at a good weight, you will want the medium 22"-28" not the large 26" to 32".
If your dog is 31 1/2" and is an adult at a good weight, you will want the X-large 30"-38" not the large 26" to 32". Selecting the size closest to the middle will allow maximum adjustability and comfort for your dog.
If your dog is a puppy please email or call us so we can help you select a size that will fit your puppy now and as they grow bigger.
The patented tensioning loop located behind the dog's neck on the FREEDOM No Pull Harness is designed to gently tighten around the dog's chest as the dog pulls. The loop is the key to the training and communication between the human and the dog. The harness does not work from creating pain instead the harness works with the dog in a very natural manner. As the dog pulls the harness tightens around the structure of the dog. When the dog stops pulling the harness provides immediate positive feedback by releasing the slight tension. The loop on the harness will not hurt or injure the dog as it has a limitation on how much it can tighten.
The location of the loop is also important. The loop was designed and placed at the base or scruff of the dog's neck as this is the dog's center of gravity. This is why a mother dog picks up her pups from the scruff. It is easier to control from the center of gravity rather than an extremity like the neck. You can literally lift your dog up by the loop of the harness without hurting them. This situation is not possible with a neck collar. When the dog is pulling forward the harness lifts the dog slightly off of their feet minimizing their overall strength and power and allowing you to gain more control.
Gentle Hugging Action:
The gentle hugging around the structure of the dog's body has been found to be beneficial with dogs suffering from anxiety and/or aggression issues. This is the same reason why compression jackets help ease anxiety.
Should you desire to both redirect your dog as well as provide training from the back loop, you can purchase the two-point connection leash. This leash allows you to connect to the front and back of the harness simultaneously. In the front and back configuration you are controlling the entire structure of the dog instead of a single point, thus maximizing control.
Removing Pressure from the Neck:
The harness is designed so that the front straps are located below the neck area minimizing the possibility of many common neck, trachea, spinal cord and optical injuries associated with pulling/tugging on a collar. Additionally, the harness is found to be helpful in assisting dogs with amputations or arthritis.
Why Does the Harness Work?
Most harnesses allow a dog to pull harder because they distribute the pressure. The Freedom No Pull Harness is different because the loop located on the back gently tightens as the dog pulls. The slight pressure allows you to control the dog easier while simultaneously giving the dog a physical cue. The tightening is only slight so it does not cause injury to the tendons or back.Each harness is a solid color with a contrasting colored loop on the back of the harness. Not only is the contrasting loop fashionable but also functional as you can easily identify how to place the harness on your dog, the loop sits on the back of the dog at the base of their neck.
The products are carefully constructed. However, as with any item placed on, near, or around an animal's body, there is a risk of entanglement and/or injury and should not be left on an unsupervised animal or used in tie-out.
Although the products are constructed for safety, a well-placed tooth or nail can cause immediate damage. This includes natural habits such as scratching and biting/chewing. Each of these natural habits can compromise the stitching/webbing and open/close buckles and can increase the risk of injury and/or escape.
As teeth act like a razor chewing damage can happen quickly. Chewed webbing may have puncture marks but will more than likely look like slices, tears or rips as the doggies teeth act like razors. Check all products closely for chewed webbing and scratched seems before using with your dog.
Good News!!! If your harness has become damaged you can have it repaired for FREE!!!
The materials used are extremely strong and durable. However, considering dogs can easily bite through bones, chewing through webbing can also be accomplished. The webbing used for the harness and leashes are industrial grade, the same used to tow small vehicles and will not fray apart unless cut or chewed.
If you find that your harness has become damaged in any way, you can have up to (2) webbing straps on the harness replaced for the cost of shipping.
