Collars are widely used today to control dogs. Although they are effective in use, they can be detrimental to some dogs, especially small breeds. Small dogs are known to suffer from problems related to a weak trachea. The trachea, commonly known as the windpipe, is a tube that allows passage of air from the back of the throat to the lungs. Tracheal collapse can be caused by damage done from leash pulling, especially if you use a collar to walk your dog. This injury is very common in small breed dogs such as Poodles, Yorkshire terriers, Chihuahua, and Pomeranians. Tracheal injuries are life threatening and very expensive to treat. Many veterinarians recommend switching to a harness that doesn't choke, to prevent possible tracheal collapse.
Made with quality material, the Gooby Freedom Harness is created with comfort in mind. The Freedom Harness's lead attachment is located at the bottom to distribute the force evenly across the chest, minimizing the force put upon the neck. An O ring is located in the middle to reduce choking when the dog is pulled from the side. The trimming is made of a very soft micro suede material and the straps are made with synthetic lambskin, to reduce irritation and add a delicate touch for your pup.
The Gooby Freedom Harness comes in various sizes. Gooby Freedom Harness II is for small breeds, so size Large doesn't necessarily mean it fits large dogs. It is very important to measure your dog before purchasing the Gooby Freedom Harness II to fully take advantage of its choke free function. As shown in the sizing chart, measurement of the neck (base of the neck, where the harness should naturally rest) and the chest is required. Also, please measure the size of your dog's head to see if the opening will fit over the head.
