PLEASE READ PRIOR TO PURCHASE:
Harness Lead is made in a loose weave in order to be soft and comfortable on the dog. Because of the loose weave, it can be prone to snags from a dog's tooth, tree branch, etc...
If we make the leash in a very tight weave so a snag will not occur, it will be rough on the dog's skin.
A snag does not mean the leash in unraveling and it will not affect the very complicated double braided construction.
Over time as the leash ages a bit, snags will no longer occur.
There is a video on our HOW TO page on fixing a snag. it is a very simple process. Even if you simply just snip the snag, it will be fine and not come apart due to the complicated weave in the leash.

TIP: Once you properly fit Harness Lead to dog and you begin the walk, you will notice the rubber disc will rise in air. This is correct. The RUBBER DISC is there to prevent over loosening. Rubber disc acts as a "floater". Allow the RUBBER DISC to RISE and FALL naturally. Do not continue to push rubber disc down as you walk, this will keep leash tight on dog.
Harness Lead works best in a gentle manner along with positive encouragement and praise from the handler. Relax the leash and let the dog's pressure be the only pressure against the leash.
*Harness Lead is NOT to be used to tie dog out unattended, it is NOT CHEW PROOF. DO NOT LEAVE HL ON THE DOG UNATTENDED. Do not use to have dog tow weight. Harness Lead is not to be used in a negative manner where the dog is jerked, yanked or "corrected" or where dominance, intimidation and/or force is being applied. This advice is not specific to Harness Lead but with any dog walking product. If you choose to use these or other negative actions toward dogs we prefer you do not purchase or use this product.
Please note: Harness Lead is a WALKING TOOL and is not to be used for RUNNING with the dog. The reason is Harness Lead tightens as the dog pulls and the dog can control this by reducing his pull. If you are running with the dog in Harness Lead it will stay tight and the dog will not be able to control the tightening aspect of the leash. For running it is recommended to use a traditional, non-tightening harness.
