We have stopped using the following products and included our reasons for not using them anymore. Just because we’ve stopped using a particular product on this list, doesn’t mean we think it’s bad. Please read our reasons in order to learn more!
Canada Pooch No-Pull Harness
Schuri’s size: Medium
This was used as our transitionary harness. Our trusty Kurgo was getting to be a bit too small and Schuri was not at full size yet. We needed something to bridge the gap until we could go for the end game harnesses we were after and currently use. There is honestly nothing special about this harness. Since the whole thing is made of nylon straps, there really isn’t any bulk to it. The entire harness tends to slant to 1 side when Schuri was pulling, making the whole, “no-pull” bit a moot point. It works perfectly as a harness though. We did not pay full price for this harness as it was discounted at Pet ValU.
Premium Canadian Antler Dog Chew
We liked this product since the day we purchased it. It made for some funny interactions with Schuri. The only reason we stopped using it is due to our conversations with the vet and dog nutritionists who cautioned us regarding these chews. Calcium that is more dense than the calcium in Schuri’s teeth can cause wear which could damage them in the long term. After months of owning the chew, he was still not able to get through it which tells us that we may have gotten the wrong size for him. In any case, we likely won’t be using them anymore.
Kurgo Journey Air Dog Harness
Aside from being expensive, we had a very good experience with this harness. We purchased this 1 week before picking up Schuri as our breeder recommended that we buy a harness. The easy slide through clip system made putting on the harness a breeze. The harness maintains it’s shape no matter which way Schuri would pull due to it’s build quality. The main reason why we didn’t buy a bigger size for Schuri when he was fully grown is because it just doesn’t look nice to us.
