Proper Attire: Collars & Harnesses


All tests must be performed on leash. Dogs should wear well-fitting buckle or slip collars (including martingales) or body harnesses.

Helpful Tips

  • Body harnesses should not restrict the movement of the dog.
  • Special training equipment such as pinch collars and head collars are not permitted. The leash should be made of either leather or fabric.
  • Retractable leashes may not be used in the test.
  • The BBTD Test only allows buckle collars or slip collars, and body harnesses.  But the only body harness that they currently allow is the EasyWalk harness.
