Onesie v. Top Clip Harness - a video comparison
You know how I said putting on my top clip harness is a fun wrestling match every time? Well, I thought I'd make a movie to show you what I mean.
I had momma help me into my Onesie and then my Top Clip.
Check it out here or below and let me know which looks better to you.
After we made this movie, I told Momma she would feel better if we took a longer walkie out in the fresh air. I was wrong. Sorry, Momma.
P.S. From Momma - There's no such thing as a "no pull" anything. If your dog is acting like he's attached to a sled, no harness is going to help. Dexter only does that when he's headed into daycare, in a strange place or pointed towards the swimming pool. Otherwise, our main disagreements are over how long to sniff in one spot, or what pace to set and a slight tug brings us back into alignment (I owe this to lots of training and the fact that he's a lab - which makes him kind of a suck up).
Yes, when he spots a coyote (yikes) or rabbit he goes cracker dog mental fits, but that doesn't count as leash pulling, right?
For walking comfort, I would rate the onesie and the top clip about equal. His clip on is a Cetacea Step-In. His Onesie is a Harness Lead.
I purchased the Harness Lead from the vendor and the Step-In at a local pet supply store. They were about the same price.
I prefer the traditional harness if I am taking him someplace where I will be unleashing him (like to visit a pal) because I can clip and unclip the leash without fussing. But, as you can see in the video, the onesie is significantly easier to get on (and off).
