For Smaller And Calmer Dogs: Back Clip-Harness! Back clip harness is one of the most popularly used harnesses. It is very comfortable to wear and helps you tow your little pup right beside you as you take a walk. In this, the leash that you hold on your hand clips on to the top of dog’s back portion with the help of a ring connected to the harness. These types of harnesses are more suited for little pups or small dogs whose throats can get damaged if we use collars to tug them. Also, back-clip harnesses work well only for calm dogs who won’t run too far away from you. This types of harness do not have the power to withstand a ferocious dog’s pulling. It is better to be used on the tamed little ones who won’t leave the master’s side no matter what!

In this, the leash is attached to the center portion of the dog’s chest. This helps to reduce the dog’s pulling actions. It also allows the owner to keep control over the movements of the dog. The front-clip harness can help to stop naughty dogs that try to pull and jump from time to time. It can also be used to turn around the direction of the dog’s movements. But this can’t be used for extremely aggressive dogs. Such dogs might need extra controls like head halters along with this. Another drawback is that the leash located on the front of the chest portion of the dog can get tangled under the front legs of the dog in can way too much slack is there.
