We know dogs chew EVERYTHING, especially new or novel items like a shiny new harness. Our premium soft-touch nylon has a 3500lb test strength. You could tow a small vehicle with it! Our nylon doesn’t rip or fray when worn by a dog. It doesn’t matter how big or strong, or how much you use it, it does not fray on its own.
We know it can take less than 5 seconds for a dog to rip into a strap when left unattended. Note: the same is true for KEVLAR webbing. Yep, you heard right. The same material that stops bullets for our uniformed officers is still no match for our dog’s teeth and jaws that were designed to snap through animal bones as if they were toothpicks.
In each package of a Balance Harness, we include our chew prevention tips. We also offer a 90-day chew warranty. Your harness is most at risk of chew damage during the first month or so that your dog is wearing the harness. As they get used to the new sensation, we recommend watching them like a hawk during this time period to prevent chew damage.
We’ve got you covered though if they manage to sneak in a few chews! In the event your dog chews on their harness rendering it unusable, we’d like to provide a chew warranty offer. Our Chew Warranty is available for customers who report and return chew damaged harnesses within 90 of purchase. Pending receipt of the damaged harness, Blue-9 will email you with a promotion code for a 50% savings on the purchase of a replacement harness. Chewed harnesses are collected and repaired in large batches to be donated to shelters across the country. Please see our Chew Policy here: https://www.blue-9.com/return-exchange-policy
