      Little Robots PORKYPAWS Adjustable Harness

      The Adjustable Ergonomic Comfort Harness was a great choice for Toby, as Toby is a thick-necked Frenchie. He has a 22” chest and a 17.5” neck so not all harnesses fitted him snugly and that’s why we needed a harness that was specifically designed to fit a French Bulldog’s broad chest.

      The harness comes with an adjustable strap and quick-release buckles that make it extremely easy to put on. Tightening the harness is a cinch as you’re able to easily guide the straps through the zinc alloy rings and tuck it in place. The smart ergonomic design aims to optimize the harness’s comfort through:

      • Reducing chafing thanks to the soft double padded interior feature
      • Removing any restriction around the neck which is achieved by the wide collar design
      • Expertly tailored for a French Bulldog’s body frame resulting in a snug fit.

      In addition, the harness also features reflective safety material, ensuring the safety above all else whether it is day or night. The exterior is made out of durable outer layer fabric which is scratch-resistant. The interior is made of breathable nylon webbing boasting extra soft sponge padded sections with key load dispersion for ultra-comfortable and long-lasting wear. It’s perfect for all weather conditions. The nylon material helps keep Frenchie's body temperature cool in summer by releasing excess heat and warm in the winter by retaining heat.

      The great thing about this harness the Zinc-alloy D-ring on the harness's back is great if your French bulldog has a tendency to pull.

      We highly recommend the Adjustable Ergonomic Harness Designed for French Bulldogs.

      The major risk with fixed-neck harnesses is that the neck opening may not be large enough to fit his head through or the fitting may actually be too large around the chest and cause chaffing. That’s why the Adjustable Harness is a great choice. It makes for a great fit for a French Bulldog’s broad chest.

      This harness comes with two separate adjustable straps, that made it incredibly easy to adjusts the tightness or looseness of the harness around Toby’s chest and stomach. At the back of the harness, is a strong and secure D-ring that is double stitched, so there is no risk it tearing when your French Bulldog tries to launch itself away from you.

      Features:

      • Adjustable around the neck and chest, perfect for growing dogs!
      • Breathable, soft and stretchable - Single layered L-Foam Neoprene and cotton mesh

      What Should You Look For In a French Bulldog Harness?

      The comfortable, lightweight and breathable fabric are ideal for French Bulldogs as they have a tendency to overheat. The material should also be durable and strong to cope with the French bulldog’s muscular physique. Leash anchors also need to be strong as French Bulldogs are very muscular and have a lot of strength which will cause strain on the anchor point.

      Try and select a harness that at a minimum is double-stitched. You’ll want to ensure the leash anchor will hold as French bulldogs are known to get excited and lunge away from you like a rocket. As a bonus, a handle can be quite useful for this too to ensure you have extra control. Another important point is to select a harness that is adjustable to allow a snug fit to your French Bulldog’s chest and doesn’t rub against its skin and cause discomfort. A harness that is too loose and moves around on your dog’s skin risks causing chaffing. Your French Bulldog definitely won’t want that and neither would you!

      If your French bulldog has a tendency to pull when you’re out walking, a front clip harness is the best solution. A harness with a front clip doesn’t allow your Frenchie to pull away from you as you walk them because if he or she tries, having the lead at the front means that the force exerted will turn the French dog’s body toward you, which will eventually make them stop. Of course, you still will need to have patience and after a few walks, you’ll find that he will be less likely to try and pull away from you and be more than happy to walk by your side.

      Why You Should Choose A Harness Over A Collar

      Walking your adorable fur baby isn't a choice, it’s a must. Your French Bulldog needs to have regular exercise to be healthy and happy. Just like humans, going for a 15-20 minute walk every day will do wonders for their health and reduce the number of health-related issues they have.

      Whether you're going for a walk or visiting the vet, the best French bulldog harness is beneficial for your pup’s well-being. As we all know, French bulldogs are notorious leash-pullers and a well-fitted harness is the safest way to control your Frenchie whilst on a walk.

      Though undoubtedly the cutest breed of all dogs, these squishy faced and big-eared pups suffer from what’s known as “brachycephalic” syndrome. This syndrome makes breathing difficult for French Bulldogs as they’re not bred with a long snout.

      The cause of brachycephalic syndrome is due to the anatomical structure of the French Bulldog’s flat-nosed face. Their long and soft palate (which often clogs up the back of the throat), narrow windpipes, large tonsils and excessively narrow nostrils combined can sometimes make it physically difficult for French Bulldogs to breathe enough air into their lungs, especially during vigorous exercise. This also means that in hot weather your French bulldog prone to heat stroke.

      That’s why using a collar is not such a good idea as it constricts the air intake and may even choke your French Bulldog. Any pressure on their windpipes, such as when they pull on the leash and may cause your Frenchie real distress. A safer and more comfortable choice is to choose to a harness over a collar, as it spreads the kinetic force across his entire chest. But it is not always that easy to find a harness that fits your French Bulldog as there are so many different styles of dog harnesses.

      How to Measure Your French Bulldog Correctly

      One thing that we always stress is that it is extremely important that you take the time to accurately measure your French bulldog before selecting the size of your harness. This is to ensure that you get a comfortable snug fit and that the harness will not cause chafing to your French Bulldog.

      Measuring your French bulldog

      The first thing you need to know is that harness sizes are generally based on three measurements:

      Neck Circumference –measured at the base of your dog’s neck.

      Girth – Measure your dog’s girth by starting 1 – 2 inches behind the front legs and measure the circumference of your dog’s rib cage.

      Chest Width – Because the chest strap intersects the girth, start the measurement at one side of the girth and measure around your dog’s chest to the other side. This measurement needs to be a comfortable distance below the throat.

      Take your time to ensure that you make accurate measurements as French Bulldogs love to jump around when you measure them. If your French Bulldog is in-between sizes it is generally recommended that you choose the larger size as all of these harnesses are adjustable.

      Hi Everyone,

      Today I'll be demonstrating how to reverse a Porkypaws harness.

      Now, this harness is adjustable around the chest, just like so. It comes with a hard buckle where u can unclip it and clip it securely and it got the top strap with a D-ring, where you attach the leash.

      Now to reverse the harness you just unclip it and unthread the strap through the loophole just like so. 

      And then you just reverse it and now you have the back design showing.

      Then what you do is thread through the thread the top loop strat through the D-ring to make sure you can attach the leash on the hardware and unclip the strap. Flip it around and clip it back in. Then thread through the strap through the loophole and clip it back in.
