Recently, I (or rather, our dog) was asked to test out some bespoke products from Meg Heath Dog Leads.
We are already harness converts; a harness allows a much more controlled walk than clipping a lead to a collar, and when you have a dog that is part whippet and can go from 0-30odd mph at the sight of a squirrel, it is a lot safer too!
The harness comes in a variety of colours (everything from baby pink to er…wine) but we chose red, because that’s his favourite. He’s so fancy. We also got him a padded breast section, because being a lurcher he’s very thin-skinned (I mean literally; don’t worry, you can call him all the names you like) and we have bought harnesses before which have rubbed and chafed.
We also chose a Car Boot Safety Dog Lead.
So how did the harness fare?
When we took the lead off, the harness didn’t stop him from running at top speed.
And then, just as it was all going so well…
We got it back. Eventually.
And as it happens, I can now confirm that the harness survived the washing machine on a short cycle, and is now dry and mud-free. Hurrah.
I’m delighted with the harness and lead. They are both really useful, well made products, which I have no doubt will see a lot of use,
This is a collaborative post, and the lead and harness were sent to me for the purposes of this review, but all thoughts and words are mine.
