Forza Large Dog Tre Ponti No Pull Harness
Tre Ponti Forza Strap Large Dog Harness provides the ideal fit for bigger dogs. The innovative design includes an "Easy Fit" system that keeps dogs comfortable and secure at all times. In many instances, large dogs are crushed when harnesses are too tight and slip out when harnesses are overly loose. However, the equestrian-like styling includes two metallic side rings that hold the polyester strap, which is attached to the leash. As your companion jumps away, the harness takes control without causing pain to your dog's body. You stay in control as the unit gently hugs your dog's shoulders. While at rest, it remains relaxed but will never come off. Thanks to the flexible fit, it will comfortably accommodate a coat in the colder months. If your dog is a strong puller, the smart design will close around its chest as the tension of the leash increases. You can train your dog that tightening is a sign to slow down. The soft front pad will keep armpit blisters and matted fur to a minimum as well.
The Forza Tre Ponti Large Dog Harness comes with a locking mechanism on the buckle that if slid into locking position, will prevent the buckle from going un-done. Be sure to slid the lock into the un-locked position to be able to squeeze the tabs to undo the buckle to remove the harness when finished.
- Easy Fit design is adjustable to fit large dogs
- Ergonomic design allows your dog to remain comfortable during all activities
- Crafted from flexible and soft materials that can be easily cleaned
- Dogs learn not to jump away
- Lock on buckle to prevent accidental un-buckling
It's a nice harness but for the price it doesn't do what it says. It fits nice and snug around the torso but loose around shoulders and there's not a way to tighten that part. She hadn't gotten out of it yet though so that's good just wish you could tighten the shoulder part
The Tre Ponti Forza No-Pull Harness I purchased from Really Good Pets Shop is a great harness. So far, I have been able to take my large lab mix puppy, Byron, on several walks without as much of an issue with him pulling on the leash. However, I would like to request that the manufacturer, Tre Ponti, or the retailer, Really Good Pets Shop, include information about the locking mechanism included on the harness. After one walk, I attempted to remove the harness without realizing that the lock had been engaged and I attempted to remove the harness by force, using a pair of pliers. Luckily I bumped the locking mechanism while trying to pry the latch apart, causing the lock to disengage and allowing the harness to be removed easily before I succeeded in breaking the latch on the harness. I have never purchased a harness for any of my prior dogs, nor have I ever puchased a Tre Ponti harness and I was not aware that the harness had a locking mechanism. I would like to request that information about the locking mechanism be included either on the manufacturer's tags or on the purchase receipt. If this information had been included, I would have given the product a five star review.
I have an Australian Shepard mix that thinks she's a sled dog. I've tried several recommended harnesses and she would still drag me down the street (yes I know, proper training...) Any harness I've tried works at most for a week then she gets used to it and goes back to her standard hyper-eager mode.
The Forza does not stop her from pulling - nothing will. But it is the best I have used so far. When she tugs harder than I like I just give a little pull and she lightens up (unless bunnies are involved).
I expected it to fit snug around the front but it doesn't unless leashed. Which means when we aren't walking they are very comfortable to lay around in which is great. My other dog is very timid and doesn’t pull however I always using matching harnesses since I walk them with a coupler. He doesn’t mind it at all. He previously chewed the Freedom No Pull harness off in one unattended hour.
Also, the locking mechanism, which I didn’t know about is a real plus. Slide the little red logo one way and the harness cannot be unlocked. And last of all – they can’t back out of them.
For the record I’ve used in order a pinch collar, the Gentle Leader (she dragged me while simultaneously furiously trying to rub the thing off her nose), the Freedom No Pull Harness, , the SENSEsation, the Xtreme (they could easily back out of it).
This is very easy to put on, it's easily adjustable, and the clasps don't pinch at all. This is exactly what I needed for my pittie mix, who is medium weight but stocky.
Another great Tre Ponti hadness. Unfortunately, it didn't work for us - my bull terrier walks very slowly and I am always happen to be in from of him - so he never pulls like many dogs :-) But, it was miscalculation on my side. So, I had to return :-(
