Pros: A great vest for the price. 1050D nylon material ensures a long life. Easy on-off application.
Cons: The plastic buckles will come free if your dog is large and pulls hard, not for small dogs.
Bottom line: This Feliscanis tactical dog harness is a great option if your dog is able to walk off the leash. The buckles have been known to come free if the dog is large and pulls hard.
The Feliscanis tactical dog harness is similar to the #2 Ultrafun and #3 OneTigris vests design. We ranked this at #8 simply because the plastic buckles have been known to break free on large dogs that pull hard. We had no issues with them snapping free but our dog is not a puller. The material is durable and will last a lifetime. It is made with 1050D nylon which is waterproof, thick, and thin. Your dog will be cool as a carrot in this vest and look pretty awesome. For the price this is a great option for a calm dog that likes to hike and occasionally do some tactical. It will also work for a large, active dog that can walk and run off leash.
Finding a job for your dog will benefit both you and him. One of the best tools you can get your dog when giving him a job is a tactical harness. A tactical harness is different from the traditional harnesses you find at your local pet shop. Tactical harnesses allow your dog to feel like they are on the job opposed to just a walk. They allow your dog to carry gear, supplies and identification tags and look cool while doing it.
Not all dogs are willing or capable to do some jobs so choose one carefully for your pup. Social dogs that love people would make for a great medic while serious lone wolf types might like to be the navigator or point man role. If you don’t have a job for your dog to do then use this vest to assist in training.
When searching for a tactical dog harness consider all the jobs your dog both can and want to do and pick a vest best suited to accommodate those jobs. They come in all shapes and sizes so shop around and find the best fit.
If your dog has a lot of energy, all the time, then this vest would make a great tool to help calm him down. Tactical dog vests have been proven to slow dogs down during walks and reduce pulling and tugging. Having the vest on makes your dog feel like they have a job to do and leaves no room for funny business. Consider getting the Ultrafun tactical dog vest to help assist you with training your dog for both easy and more complicated commands.
Attaching a medical kit and supplies to your dogs vest will give him a very important and helpful job as a medic. Whether your training alone with your dog or hiking in a populated area, having medical supplies is always a good idea. Consider attaching a prominent MEDIC badge for identification purposes and let people know your dog has supplies in case of an emergency. This vest has plenty of room for gear and badge attachments.
Whether you’re going on a long hike in the deep woods or participating in a search and rescue mission, having a navigator in your group is important. Now, we all know dogs can’t read maps and navigate but they can carry the gear.
With the Molle webbing and secure VELCRO on this vest you can give your dog the navigator title and allow him to carry the gear. Having your dog carry the navigation necessities is great. If you’re ever in need of your compass, map, flashlight or phone, you can easily pull it from your dogs vest instead of digging through your pack.
When walking on a leash, most dogs tend to lead and walk in front of us. Some like to walk with us by our sides but that is rare. When your dog leads he is taking the role of the point man. This causes him to be the first one exposed to a threat or danger. If hiking in the deep woods with wild animals or a neighborhood with wild dogs, consider getting your point man the Ultrafun tactical dog vest.
You can attach necessary items like battery operated LED lights and reflector badges for better visibility, a small cow bell for an audio deterrent, or even protective spikes. The vest itself will also help protect your dog from scratching or minor attacks from wild animals. Make sure your point man is protected and safe during your adventures and training.
