There are many different reasons why a dog harness may be the perfect solution for your dog. If you are walking a large and strong dog, a harness can help you to gain control over your dog more easily. For small dogs it may reduce the odds of injury as it distributes the force exerted by a leash, for example, more evenly thus reducing the risk for injury.
But a harness also greatly reduces the odds of neck and trachea injuries which may be an issue if you are dealing with a dog that is constantly pulling on the leash and collar. It also adds security, because while many dogs manage to wiggle out of a collar if they try hard enough, a properly fitted harness leaves little to no room for escape. But a harness also offers convenience for the walker. It is much easier to attach the leash to the back of a dog onto the harness that at the neck if the dog is jumping up and down in excitement about the prospect of going for a walk. There are many other reasons why a harness might be a good fit for your dog.
