Re: Collar or Harness for Agitation
For most dogs I also prefer the harness. Safer and more comfortable for the dog, no stress or torquing on the neck. But, handlers must be careful to make sure the harness is adjusted properly so the dog can't get loose. The other downside to a harness is they allow the dogs more reach. Dogs can stretch through the harness, getting a couple extra inches (enough to get a bite when they shouldn't) and this is more difficult with a collar. But for most work, I think the harness is better and less risk of injury to the dog.
