Enter to Win A Kurgo Dog Harness!
Keep Your Dog Safe This Fall
Welcome to a great group giveaway that we’re co-hosting with DogTipper! Along with some other super blogs, we’re giving away a dog harness in the winner’s choice of styles from Kurgo. This is such a cool giveaway for all the cool talented dogs in the Talent Hounds Community. You all go to competitions, events, and expos, or off on therapy visits and adventures. Maybe you need a new dog car harness or how about one to hold a GoPro?
I confess, I nearly did not host this giveaway as I really want a new Kurgo car harness. I had even approached Kurgo to test one when we were planning our trips up to cottage country a few weeks ago. In the end, Kilo did not make the trips so I delayed. I am planning to buy one next week. I’d also like one for a GoPro when I get a GoPro.
Dog harnesses are the ideal way to secure a leash (or seat belt) on your dog with less risk of damaging your dog’s neck or trachea from a sudden pull. Kilo the Pug likes his blue harness I got when I started fostering him a year ago and he wears it every day (I only take it off when he goes to bed in his crate at night). He is quite comfortable and safe while on a leash and it gives me some control handling him. He does not wear a collar as his trachea is already a bit dodgy I suspect. He is not very obedient and will suddenly lunge and pull like a bandit or try to slip a collar.
He loves going for short car rides and I attach his harness to the seat belt. I want to spread the pressure if we stop suddenly and make sure the harness is strong enough to hold. I need a new one. I read that the Kurgo Car harnesses have been crash-tested and perform well in cars, as well as on the street, so I thought they would be perfect for Kilo.
Kurgo Crash-Tested Dog Car Harness (source:http://www.kurgo.com/harnesses/tru-fit-enhanced-strength-harness-3055-series/)
This crash-tested dog car harness keeps your pup safe while driving. It has been designed as a dog safety harness, not a converted walking harness. The all-steel Nesting Buckle System is based on the engineering for harnesses used by rock climbers and linesmen ensuring strength and safety.
With five adjustments points, it’s easy to get a near custom fit for any dog, regardless of size and proportions. The chest pad reduces stress on the trachea and sternum while dispersing kinetic energy across the chest of the dog. This is important during those rare, but dangerous impact crashes.
Because it’s designed with comfort in mind, our Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Harness can also be used as a no-pull walking harness. There’s a halt ring on the front chest plate. If your pup tries to pull, it will just turn him around effectively training him that pulling will get him nowhere!
August 17-31, 2015.
