Nice!
I really like this handle and it definitely has a place on my vest. It’s much more comfortable than my current one, and is great for when I need my dog to momentum pull.

Like Greatdogs I have a taller dog and this handle did put my dog farther forward than he was trained to be or comfortable with. I don’t think it would be a problem for a smaller dog. Just a personal challenge for us!

The material is slightly spongey, with dips in the fabric that allow air flow to prevent your hand from getting sweaty.The clips are heavier-duty and solid. They don’t swivel at the base. The stitching is a solid single line. The handle inside is hard but still flexes while retaining its curved shape. The strap is removable, but the black and white service dog patch is sewn on. It does not interfere with gripping/holding the handle and it did not move around while using this handle.

I did have one minor issue with my handle, the fabric stretched out a bit during use and left about a half inch gap between the clip and the internal grip (see photo.) This is fairly minor and doesn’t detract from its usage.



Yes, I would recommend this product.

Service dog tested
The spacer mesh handle is easy to attach to most of my harness equipment and I was fortunate to try it with several different dogs in my program.

This particular material on the handle shifts around while my dog was on a task which inhibited the feedback I rely on. I prefer the more rigid bridge handle; the mesh simply doesn't have the stability needed in my opinion for service dog tasks such as proprioception (light balance awareness left/right) or even light guide/leading tasks.

The centerpiece of the bridge handle shifts up and down too easily and I find it distracting paired with the movement of the spacer mesh.

Regarding the length, I found the 12' handle to be much too long for my purposes based on my height relative to my dog's. Whether used for proprioception or light guide work, I prefer my dog work closer to my space to allow ample support. Inuse a different size handle for each dog. Due to its length, this handle prevented the proximity I am most comfortable with; my dog had to be too far ahead of my center of balance to engage the benefit of the handle. My dog was unusually extended too far in front of me (which was confusing to him) and my arm was constantly extended as well which prevented the comfortable, controlled feedback I need from him.




No, I would NOT recommend this product.
