Instead of nearly choking every dog I have ever owned I came up with a special way to avoid that problem.
If you think of someone riding a horse using a saddle, how one would control that horse, that is exactly the way my harness works. It gently squeezes the rib/chest area instead of the neck/trachea area. It is unlike other harnesses (not collars) that also constrict the neck area or irritate the pits of the front legs of a dog. You can actually pick the dog up off the ground without hurting it one bit. This design will also work much better in a car, like a seatbelt, because of the way it straddles the dog. Please take a look at the video to the right to see how it works.
