"This dog harness has been built to last. Super durable, strong and also soft on your dog. Because the load is distributed across the dog's chest and around the sides, it does not pull against the throat like a standard collar does. Durable materials and innovative construction helps to ensure a safe and secure fit. Like all our harnesses, it is finished with a stainless steel D-ring that will not rust and features a soft-touch, magnetic traffic handle for when you need close control of your dog."
