Testimonial From Lindsey Hinds
After a short walk in the BrilliantK9, my skepticism started to recede. The BrilliantK9 harnesses seem to mold to your dog with wear, and the fit improves over the first couple of uses. By the second time my dog wore the harness, where we really got the fit dialed in, I was totally sold. At agility trials, she doesn't torque her neck by dragging me to the ring like she did with her martingale lead. She walks much calmer with her BrilliantK9 on, and I see less strain in her neck after trials as well.

Posted by Teri Jaymes on

It is for the most part the same as that of a dogs neck.  The Vertebrae, Oesophagus, Trachea, Thyroid Gland, External Jugular Vein are all in very similar places to that of humans.   Collars are easy throw a rope or expensive piece of leather or webbing around a dogs neck and drag them along.  Dogs/puppies quickly learn the game and then drag us around. So let me go through the list of injuries that are caused by collars, Neck Injuries, Ear and Eye Issues, Hypothyroidism, Malfunction of...

New Fun Dog Toys

We've been having way too much fun in the shop. You'll see an assortment of new dog training toys.   Super Tugs, I call them that because we offer them with different handle lengths.  I like the longer handles with my dogs because it helps reduce neck strain to the dog and less strain on my shoulder.  When the dog rips and tears back and forth, I let the length do the work for me and just don't pull against the tug.  It's easier on both of us.  If you have little dogs it's great because you don't have to get...

New Speed Buckle for Petite to Large Dogs

Posted by Teri Jaymes on

 Get Happy! The New Speed Buckle for our ergonomic dog harness is here. We have been looking for a better option than the side release buckles, it needed to be opened or closed with one hand, be low profile and at the same time be strong.  Well it all came together in this New Speed Buckle.  I made the first one for Jeanne to use on Lola, she has MS and struggles with limited dexterity.  She's become a huge fan of this buckle, it's made getting the harness on and off Lola so easy.   Some very special agility friends have...
