We recently won a harnesslead in a giveaway and have decided to review it after testing it as it is a new product for us. Mum thinks it’s great
What is the harnesslead and where can I get it.
The harnesslead is a clever idea that gives you a harness,slip lead and fixed lead all in 1lead.
Currently only sold in the USA but they do ship to the UK. Available from their website harnesslead.com
How much is it?
We won ours in a free giveaway so didnot cost us anything except import vat. The harness lead is currently $27 and around $6-10 for us postage and $25 for UK postage not including any import tax.we paid around £3 tax plus royal mail handling fee of £8
What is it made from?
The harnesslead is made from soft polypropylene rope in 5different colours. This rope is soft and doesn’t rub or tangle and can stand being dragged on ground.
How does it work?
To use as a slip lead the collar section goes over head and has 2 coloured knots that slide to enable it to open or close the amount you want.
To make the fixed collar you just slide the knots so the rope cannot loosen or tighten and stays in place.
For the harness the collar section goes over head loosely to shoulders and the lead passed under the tummy and round back the the special hole near the neck and a rubber stopper moved to tighten.this allows the lead to tighten if dog pulls and loosen again.
Videos are available on the website and on youtube for proper instructions on fitting
Will I fit my dog?
The harnesslead is designed to fit all size dogs.there is a smaller version available for the smaller breeds to prevent a long lead but the main one can fit from the smallest to the biggest.has been tested by us on a 15kg lurcher,25kg lab and 38kg mastiff mix without any problems and no choking or escaping although the lead is quite long but can be shortened using a carabiner clip to aattach handle to ring near neck
-Fits all sizes
-Slip lead doesn’t choke
-Hard to escape harness as tightens
-Easy to fit on dog
-Easy to carry when off dog
-Good value if multiple dog house
-squeezes out when wet and doesn’t get all crusty or tangle
-soft on dog and on human hands
-Lead has to trail on floor if dog has free run but needs harness kept on causing it to get muddy and wet
– bit awkward if dog moving about while fitting
-Lead is a bit long on our smallest dog when not clipped to neck ring
-Knots are bit stiff to move to aadjust sizing
– ermm, can’t find any others just yet
