It’s all because of their heads

Since we all know Frenchies are a brachycephalic dog breed, they have potentials for suffering from breathing issues. That’s why is important to observe your Frenchie’s age, habits, and health when picking a French bulldog harness or collar. On one hand, they’ll not like the idea of wearing a collar, but you also know that’s an important wearing detail. When we say detail, we don’t think on wearing a collar for fashion purposes. We think on leaving some important info on your dog’s neck such as his/her name and your phone number.

What to do if your dog doesn’t like a choke feeling that collar provides?  How to find a solution if he also doesn’t feel comfortable wearing a harness?

Should I choose a French bulldog harness or collar?

According to the opinions of hundreds of Frenchie owners and breeders, the answer is that you should choose both of them. So what does it mean? It means that your French bulldog should use a collar only when going for a walk for keeping his/her ID tag. Every dog should wear a collar in case of escape.  On the other hand, these wonderful dogs may experience many benefits from wearing a harness. A harness doesn’t provide them with an unpleasant choke-like feeling and gives better support to their compact-built bodies.

Using a collar with a leash is certainly not a good idea in case your French bulldog likes to pull and jump when going for a walk. In that way, your pooch can get neck injuries. Using a collar can also make training more difficult because you’ll not have total control of your dog. Brachycephalic dog breeds, by having pressure around the neck can increase the intraocular pressure of the eye leading to eye damage or worsening of previous eye disease, like glaucoma.

Harnesses are an especially good fit for training puppies. By using a harness, you don’t make a risk of increasing the dog’s eye pressure. For the dog with shortened nostrils, who may already have issues with breathing, using a harness doesn’t restrict airflow, unlike a collar.
