Another Argument For Harnesses

Posted on

I’ve written before about the dangers of attaching your pet’s leash to its collar. Here is yet another excellent example of why to use harnesses instead. Following is a February 3, 2023 YouTube news report by Inside Edition showing a dog dangling by its leash high atop an elevator door. Seems its owner got on the elevator, absent-mindedly failing to ensure the pup was also safely inside the car. The elevator closed and the car went up, taking the little pooch along.

Thankfully, the leash was attached to the pup’s harness, not its collar. The pup could have been horribly injured, choked, and even died, if the leash had been attached to the collar around its neck. This is a very important reminder that collars are just ornamental and for dog tags only.

I founded Milagro Senior Pet Refuge© (Phoenix) in 1998, and BareFootPets (TM) ) in 2008. Animal welfare has always been and will always be my heart’s work. If my only legacy is that I save a handful of precious souls that would not survive otherwise, I’m good with that.
