Harnesses, do not pull on the neck. Collars tend to put more pressure on the neck of the dog, that comes with a choking risk when you’re holding your dog back when it’s found a cat.
Harnesses, clip around the chest of the dog, and do not put much pressure. It is also much easier for a dog to escape a collar than a harness.
Pros and Cons of a harness
