Maybe effective for small to medium sized children as well!
We tried one of those kid harnesses on son. He’d take off running, hit the end of the rope and land on his butt. Over and over again. We took pity on him and took it off.
That shows some dedication to the act of escape. A little less to the art of escape, but commitment to freedom. Well done.
On the other hand, a kid harness saved my daughter’s life more than once. Wish nephew had been wearing one when he climbed out of grocery cart and broke his head. Months of recovery and helmets. Those kids are climbers at early ages, and our escape artists could slip out of waist and shoulder harnesses in a flash (or hand grips) and be climbing the mall fences in a flash ( second story). Maybe that’s why they were so good at tae kwon do.
Dog harnesses are the only way to walk or travel. Much safer and more comfy than collars. I’ve seen too many dogs strangle or break a neck in collars. When you work with dogs over a lifetime, you see sad as well as good. Going to check out this harness now.
