Having a rabbit as a pet animal is a beautiful idea. I have been owning rabbits for the last 13 years. Owning rabbits feels great. However, it is a bit difficult as well. One needs to take care of them efficiently, of every little thing that surrounds their lives. 

From the food to the rabbit harness that you give them to every little thing. As a fresher in being a rabbits’ owner, you must be surfing a lot on the internet these days and it is very obvious that so much of details have gone out of your mind already. 

To make things go easy for you, and help you out in the surfing procedure, I have concluded 7 best rabbit harnesses. I have tried almost 30 rabbit harnesses in the last few years, and it is very obvious that not all of them turned out to be good. To save you from making a wrong purchase, give a look to these products that you should be taking into consideration. Let’s see if they are helpful to you. 

Types of a Rabbit Harness

Rabbits’ harnesses have been created with much delicacy. And as a buyer, you should also purchase the kinds, which are delicate to their body. The two very well known, different types of a rabbit/bunny harness are the H-Harness and Vest Harness. These two are well known for their comfortable and delicate structure. 

H-Harness

This type of rabbit harness is easily available in the market. However, if you do not get them in the pet stores around your house, you can order them online from trustworthy sites, like Amazon.  

These harnesses fit very nicely to rabbits, and they have just two buckles, first near the neck and second near the chest. The buckles connect to each other, which is very imperative as it does not put any force on their neck, but just on their waist region. This allows the sprain to move all over the body, from their leash and keeps them pain-free. 

Always keep it in your mind to keep the harness connected to their waist, and never to their neck. If you do so, this might become injurious for your rabbit. 

Vest Harness

This type of rabbit harness is mainly created for small animals. Such rabbit harnesses are made up of a material, which kind of looks like a coat. This can be wrapped around their body, which will make it difficult for them to get escaped. 

The jacket or coat that you will use to wrap around their body, can be connected by the use of velcro or something that is safe and secure to use, provided they are fit as well. This is also easily available, both offline and online.

Important factors that you should consider while buying a product

There are a lot of rabbit harnesses available in the market, but sometimes, it becomes really difficult to figure out which ones are really worth buying. It will be even more difficult for you if you are a fresher in the market, and sellers may sometimes take advantage of you. 

So, to help you in knowing the right product for your rabbits, here are some features that one should look in the rabbit harness while purchasing. These features may help you in getting yourself the right product for your rabbit:

  • Size 

The right size matters the most. It would be a complete waste if you end up buying a harness that is either too tight or too loose. An accurate size matters a lot. 

A tight harness restricts the rabbits and the loose ones, does not hold them, hence they run away. A perfect size should be the one that lets the rabbits enjoy every move that they make, give them freedom, make them feel comfortable, and look nice on them. 

For this, you should be very accurate with their measurements.

  • Flexibility

This means that the rabbit harness that you buy should be flexible enough to make the rabbits feel that they are not restricted in any way. It should be adjustable and fit to them in a way that is comfortable as well. 

Purchase the ones that can be stretched as well, because, with time, you may need an extra size of a rabbit harness.

  • Comfort

Comfort should be the utmost priority in everyone’s life, be it of your pet animal. You should make sure that the product you are buying, keeps your rabbit in an absolute comfort zone. 

The material of a rabbit harness should be of high-quality material. It should be made in a way that it does not hold their body tightly, but allows them to breathe freely. Make sure that the harness you buy has padding inside it. It makes them feel soft while they walk and does not cause any injury.

  • Ease of use and durability

Do not buy a product that looks stylish to use and serves no purpose. Style matters but it would go in vain if it fails to serve its purposes. It should be easy to put on and off them and make sure they have only two buckles or Velcro in it. 

With that, your product should be good enough to stay longer with your rabbits, in short, they should be durable to save your money and time, both.
