Recommended Equipment

Updated: Dec 1, 2020

Set your dog up to succeed with humane and enriching equipment. My previous dog, Gypsy, suffered from neck pain due to tightening collars and correction equipment. Recent studies have confirmed that collars are causing neck injuries. A well-fitting harness is the safest option, and those with front-attach options help reduce pulling. Here's a list of my favorite equipment, and where to find it.


1. PetSafe 3in1 Harness


This budget-friendly harness is a great all-around harness. It has a back clip and no-pull front clip. It also features a car safety restraint to limit your dog’s movement in the car.
