Why Escape Free?

How many times has your dog tried to escape by backing out of its harness? The result of "that one time my dog escaped from its harness" can be a scary one. If you're fortunate, you might be able to catch your dog before something happens. But as dog parents ourselves, we are all certain that none of us want to ever take that chance.

The Gooby Escape Free Series was created for exactly that. The Patented Escape Free design contracts the harness when dogs try to back out, which tightens the space around their body and hugs them tightly so the harness will not slip off.

Why Escape Free Sport Harness?

A colorful and sporty look on a "Sport Harness" is a must, and we made sure of that. It comes with 4-point adjustments to make sure it fits on your furry pal like a glove. The lightweight neoprene material and webbed nylon straps ensure durability and keep your pup comfortable. If you're looking for a sporty harness in our Escape Free Series, the Escape Free Sport Harness is the right fit for you.

Escape Free Functionality

The Escape Free Harness contracts when dogs try to back out, which tightens the space around their body and hugs them more tightly.The harness is released when dogs are not backing out, which opens the space around the dog’s body so they stay comfortable.

Note: It is crucial to make sure the sizing is correct by checking to see if the harness still has space around the back, even after fully tightening the harness. There should be no space around the back whatsoever when the harness is pulled.

No. It does not.

The Gooby Escape Free Sport Harness is not specifically designed to prevent pulling.

Instead, it is designed to significantly reduce or even eliminate the risk of a dog escaping, particularly dogs that have a tendency to pull by backing up.

  • All Escape Free harnesses are equipped with the same escape free functionality, but their level of comfort and adjustability differs.
  • The Sport is purposefully crafted for outdoor use, emphasizing durability and functionality. On the other hand, the Memory Foam excels in providing exceptional comfort with its innovative memory foam padding while the Easy Fit prioritizes a lightweight design, ensuring ease of use and convenience.

The Escape Free Sport is not specifically designed for dogs with trachea issues.

For dogs with trachea issues, we recommend the Comfort X Series.

The Escape Free Harness is equipped with the Escape Free Functionality, a tightening mechanism that allows the harness to hug the dog's body whenever the leash is pulled or activated.

This feature is meant to discourage the dog from pulling or escaping from the harness. It also provides a snug and secure fit that can help prevent the harness from slipping or twisting.

When the mechanism is activated, it tightens and reduces the space around your dog's back and hugs them tightly.

This prevents your dog from slipping out when they attempt to back out.

Therefore providing a comfortable and safe experience for both the dog and the owner.
