ABOVE: The lightweight dog harness wrap is manufactured from a durable synthetic or natural woven fabric material that is washable and designed to be weight-bearing for typical loads encountered during restraint of the owner's dog. The leash connection point is preferably constructed with a metal ring or metal D-ring connection point 400 secured by a woven fabric webbing strap handle 200 integrated along the length of the harness wrap and designed to provide load distribution of the leash pulling forces, and forces exerted on the webbing strap 200, across the woven fabric areas of the harness wrap.
A lightweight dog harness wrap for providing a secure, comfortable leash connection to a small to medium size dog.
The harness wrap is comprised of a durable and reversible fabric material shaped to wrap around the torso and neck areas of the dog and is preferably secured and adjusted with Velcro.
A nylon webbing strap handle is provided on the harness wrap and arranged longitudinally along the dog's back for lifting up the dog.
Of particular importance is the location of the leash connection point at the rear of the harness wrap and located in the middle of the dog's torso and at the center of mass.
The leash connection point may additionally be used to secure the dog to an automobile seat belt.
ABOVE: The dog 100 is outfitted and secured in the lightweight dog harness wrap 500. The dog appears calm and protected from the elements with the secure feeling provided by the harness wrap enclosure. The harness wrap is secured along the dog's chest area with Velcro connection point 600. The dog owner may lift up and control the dog with the fabric webbing strap handle 200 running along the back of the harness wrap. The leash connection point 400 is preferably embodied in a metal D-ring design for clipping on a conventional leash 300. The harness wrap 500 dissipates leash pulling forces across the dog's center of mass, chest and torso areas and provides a choke-free design which prevents neck and trachea injury.
By locating the leash connection in the middle of the dog's body, the leash pulling forces are distributed and dissipated at the dog's torso in order to eliminate harmful forces at the neck, choking and potential trachea injury, as well as injury to the hips from torquing at the neck.
The dog is more balanced during walking. The harness wrap's advanced material and fabrics regulate the dog's body temperature by providing both warming and cooling properties.
Nervous or anxious dogs are calmed with a feeling of protection and security with the harness wrap's swaddle-fit enclosure.
