Best Equipment for Shy, Fearful, or Anxious Dogs

Don't take the chance of your pup panicking, slipping out of their collar or harness, and running off. The best equipment for a shy, fearful, or anxious dog can help prevent accidental escapes.

It can happen in an instant, even to the best of us!

Use a secure 2-point connection system that includes a regular connection to a collar or harness, plus a backup system in case that collar or harness fails. Sometimes called a "belt and suspenders" approach.

This can be a double-ended leash or a backup strap connected between the leash and collar, or between a harness and collar, which gives you time to react and secure your dog.

Reliable backup systems can prevent accidental escapes and help to keep your dog safe.

I offer a variety of options so that you can select the one that will work best for you and your canine companion.

Help keep your dog Safe and Secure!
