This study aimed to explore the impact of six different harness types oncanine biomechanics compared to a standard (base) collar, specifically shoulder extension,shoulder flexion, elbow extension and elbow flexion.
Green Zone design principle: free movement, free breathing.
Dog harnesses are becoming more popular, with their large variety stemming from the idea that different dogs and scenarios require different types of harnesses.
New research into the physics of a wet dog’s shake has found that furry mammals can shake themselves up to 70 percent dry in just a fraction of a second.
Dog harnesses contribute in a major way to allowing us to spend more time and have more experiences with our pet. It could even be said that the message of the dog harness is: ‘’Go together! Everyday. Everywhere.” The only thing left to decide is which harness is used for what.
The effects of each type of dog harness on dogs’ movement were reviewed in a study by the British Royal Veterinary University. During the research, dog harnesses considered “restrictive” and “non-restrictive” were examined to see what effect they have on the dog’s movement during walking and trotting on a treadmill.
We have determined that JULIUS-K9® IDC® Powerharness doesn’t hinder the movement of the dog during running.
Prof. Dr. Martin S. Fischer, Professor of Special Zoology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Jena, and his team presented their study on the locomotion of dogs in 2011.
How did a thrown out dog wandering in the streets become an unbeatable running champion?
