An apple a day may or may not actually keep the doctor away, but what about a dog walk a day? Now, that's a different story. In fact, when it comes to pet ownership, there are a number of proven health benefits for people, including physical, mental and emotional improvements, from enhancing social skills to decreasing a person's risk of heart attack. 

Your dog may be perfectly well-behaved on the lead, never pulling, jumping, or trying to wriggle out of their collar. Many dog owners now decide to use a harness instead of a collar as it can help with control and training.

Here are a few reasons that you may choose a harness:
1. For training puppies that haven’t yet learned to walk on a lead.
2. Harnesses give better control, which is especially important on busy streets or in crowds.
3. For strong or very large dogs, a harness gives you much better control.
4. If your dog needs a little gentle assistance standing after lying down or sitting.

5. Harnesses are a great solution for those little escape artists who slip their collars!

All SoulPet harnesses have been carefully selected to maximise all the above benefits whilst ensuring comfort for your dog.
