Which harness is perfect for a rabbit

To make the furry feel comfortable and as comfortable as possible, you need to choose a harness that will serve as a good leash. The harness for rabbits should not be of the walking type, as the pet can easily slip out of it and run away.

To select a harness, it is important to know the parameters and size of the animal, as well as to choose a convenient location of the fasteners.

  1. A good collar should be fastened so that in times of stress or fear, the pet cannot escape.
  2. A good leash should have H-shaped straps.
  3. The most common harness consists of 2 systems (rings). To put it on the eared one, you need to take it in your hands, stick the head into the first ring and fasten it. The second strap is pushed under the tummy of the fluffy and tightens. There should be a carabiner on the back to which a leash or tape measure is attached.
  4. You can purchase a dress harness. She also won't let the furry escape. Putting on such a system is very simple: you need to fasten the material first on the stomach and then on the neck. These harnesses are made of very durable and lightweight material. They can be adjusted in size and simply zipped.

It will not be difficult to accustom

It is necessary to accustom the animal to the strap immediately after all vaccinations have been made. On average, this takes 4 to 6 days. If the animal is very shy, up to two weeks. At first, the rabbit may gnaw at the straps, as it will not understand what it is. In this regard, for the first time, you should buy an inexpensive collar.

At first, you do not need to take your pet out into the street, let him get used to the leash. Every day, the time for walking around the house in a strap should be increased, starting from 3 minutes. After he gets used to the leash, you can safely take your pet outside for the first time.

To make it, you need to cut a piece of fabric in a square, its size will depend on the size of the pet. After you have cut off the part, you need to carefully attach it to the pet and cut it right under the rabbit. After all the layouts have been created, you need to stitch all the materials together.

Other options

The next product is made like a harness. Thin pieces of tissue are combined into one large system.The first thing to do is to take all measurements from the rabbit: the diameter of the chest, waist, neck and, of course, the segment between them. Two ideally even strips are cut from the total material, which are equal in centimeters to the diameter of the chest and waist, to this you need to add another 20 cm. You also need to sheathe everything with a soft lining so that the fabric itself does not rub.

Also, for such a harness, it is best to take a rather stiff fabric so that the animal cannot tear it or chew it easily. Then, on one side of the piece (cut off earlier, 2 strips), you need to make 2 loops, into which you then thread the ring. In order to secure the buckle at the very bend, seam number 2 is made.

On the other side of the strip, thanks to the awl, holes are created, and the space between them should be at least 1 cm. Another strip is taken from the material, the length of which must be calculated as follows: the length between the lines plus 10 cm for the seams. This strip should also be trimmed with a soft cloth.

After successfully completing work on the harness, you can safely put it on your pet and go explore the world with him. The main thing is to take measurements correctly, because the fluffy will not stand still for a second!
