It refers to clipping the leash to the TOP of the leash ring on our harness and to a regular collar simultaneously. Your leash snap holds both the harness ring and the ring on the collar together.

The chest strap on the harness is designed to pivot up to make it easy to reach a collar. We suggest loosening the collar if it has been adjusted tight for use alone with a leash.

The benefits:

  • Prevents the leash from pulling straps against your dog’s front legs.
  • Provides a way to guide your dog’s head without placing pressure on his trachea.
  • Offers safety for unexpected behaviors (jumping, lunging, and sniffing).
  • Helps prevent the harness from shifting.
  • Helps keep the chest strap angled upward. This prevents excessive shifting over a dog’s shoulders.
  • Helps keep the leash fixed in position to give a dog consistent body cues.
  • Keeps the chest strap away from a dog's mouth (chewing) when walking on leash.

After regular use, the collar-harness leash attachment can be phased out. However, the collar-harness is recommended in high stimulus environments.
