Collar vs. Harness

collar for dogIf you’re trying to decide between a collar or a harness for your Boston Terrier, you should definitely chose the harness.

I started out using a collar on my puppy, and that was a huge mistake.

After about a year of using a collar, I switched over to a harness. The harness works much better, and now I don’t feel like I’m choking my dog every time we go out.

Harnesses distribute the weight around your dog’s body as she pulls, preventing that choking effect that collars can have on dogs that like to pull.

Your Boston Terrier may be at risk for neck or trachea injuries while simply going for a walk! Believe me. this is not a risk that you want to take.

Another plus is that with the use of a harness you don’t have to worry about your dog slipping out of her collar when she sees lizards or birds around the neighborhood.

Say No to Choke Chains

“Choke chains” should also be avoided if you have a Boston Terrier.

Boston’s have enough breathing issues without having a metal collar cutting off their air supply. 99% of people that use choke chains do not use them correctly, resulting in severe injuries to your precious pooch.
