Harness or a collar

I am a newbie to the sport that is why I may sound ignorant, but please let me know if you use a flat collar or a harness for Schutzhund training? If harness, what brand is the best in your opinion?

I have one of each for different reasons. I prefer the agitation collar for most early stuff with the dogs and the harness when working on the back tie.

I like harnesses on babies - but usually - your helper will tell you want he wants to work the youngsters on....they have their preferences


I get really nice harnesses made by an Amish harness maker.....most of my puppy people and friends have ones I have gotten for them

As the others said, I use both depending on what I'm working on. Generally your helper or TD will tell you what they want and why. So follow their plan.

I use one of these for my harness. Well close, I'm now realizing they don't have my exact ones anymore. I like all of these and again for different reasons.

Usually if I'm using just a collar these days, I'm just using my fur saver. But as far as agitation collars go, I have these

I would use whatever your TD suggests, since you're training in their program and they know your dog. My club does protection work on loosely fitted large link prong collars.
