Reptile Harnesses & Leashes

Postby c4chaos » Wed Mar 21, 2012 10:40 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hey BD type people,
The weather is finally nice enough to take Miles outside.
He's about 17 inches long from nose to tip of tail.
Do you have any recommendations for lizard harnesses? I would like to keep it affordable, but good quality.
I just feel like this would at least keep him from getting away from me if he chose to do so.
Thanks.
- Sarah & Miles

I have been making my own. i'm on the fifth one now. it's a work in progress, but i have been trying to make one small enough for him to get the most sun, to be comfortable, and inescapable.

Those are awesome. I was looking at the Drag-A-Long harnesses, but yours look like they would make the most sense.

I've had no complaints with my drag-a-long leash. I've also got a lot of complements on it, I have three here is one pic...

I like both the Drag-a-longs and the Ogle leashes, I think every dragon should have one of each. The Ogle harness is easier to put on and has a very long leash. The Drag-a-long has a lot of bling and is very fashionable for trips away from home. We carry them both in our store and cannot bring enough of them to shows, absolutely a must have for any dragon owner.

I use these:

http://lllreptile.com/store/catalog/reptile-supplies/reptile-husbandry-tools/-/medium-flukers-repta-leash/

for my frilleds and blue tongues, and several of my friends use them for their beardies when they take them out. It seems to make strangers more comfortable with the lizards' presence to see them on a leash.

There's several sizes, but the medium is what fits most adult beardies that I've seen.

Local pet store just got the Repta Leash in for me. After work I am going to go check the sizes. Are they adjustable at all? Anyone have a picture of the Flukers on a beadie? Silver is just over 13 inches now. I hope the medium will work. Are they easy to put on. Hope Silver likes it because the weather is starting to warm up here on Cape Cod. Will post a pic when we get it.

They are adjustable, at least over the top, but the bottom unfortunately isn't. Try the medium, keep the packaging, most stores should readily accept an exchange on those if you keep them looking tidy. :)

Maybe I can take some pics while at the stores today... stay tuned!

I have this "hip leash"

http://i863.photobucket.com/albums/ab19 ... apture.jpg (not my picture)

made myself one.

lool. ; v ;

i tried to put these "jacket" leashes on him.

but he always escaped from them. or it didnt fit on his arms.

and then i got all frustrated so i just made a simple hip leash.

which im using now for 2 years without any problems. ; v ; and it doesnt bother him at all.

He seems like he hardly notices he has it on. Escaping is one of my greatest fears. We will be experimenting around the house first.

Sorry it took all day, but the last store I was at had an adult male beardie I could snap some pictures of the leashes with. :)

Here's a few shots of a few angles. This guy is full grown, and about 17" long (stub tail), and I used a large sized leash with him.

In my hand to give you an idea of his size:

Hope that helps!

Would it be a good idea to purchase a leash when the beardie is at least 1yr old :?: :oops:
