I stumbled into a pet store in San Francisco at Ghiradelli Square; I love finding new places to shop for the pooches. This was not your regular pet store; no this was Yap Wrap. I went in and started to look around; they have lots of great stuff but then I found the harnesses, I was very curious. The manager was in the store and was very helpful; he educated me on their very special harnesses, they looked so comfortable. All I could think is that this Wrap harness would be wonderful for my little Jessie (a Jack Russell Terrier.) I definitely wanted to try it out; so I brought home a red one with a strap as well. They make straps that hook onto the harness and right into the seat belt buckle of the car. A great safety feature.
Now to try a walk while Jessie sports her new Yap Wrap. Jessie went on about her walk like business as usual. She seemed very comfortable and I was able to guide her along with a gentle tug every once in a while. She is nearly deaf so calling her no longer works; I like that when I tug on her that her neck does not take any pressure. There is a handle on top of the Wrap; you can grab this if you need to grab a hold of your dog in a pinch. I used it to pull Jessie out of several bushes.
As we walked along I thought how wonderful this harness would be for my girl Tilley. With her Vestibular disease she is often off balance; I could have definitely used this several months ago. And even now; the handle on top would be a wonderful way to steady her, especially in the evening when she is at her worst. Jessie and I finished our walk; I hooked her back into the seat belt buckle and off we went. The Wrap is attached by velcro in two areas making on and off a breeze.
I love it; and I think Jessie likes it as well, she sure looks snazzy in my red Xterra.
