I have always used a harness on every dog i've had. I like them for several reasons. Bassets are a lot stronger than you think and can pull like crazy. Especially when something (like a possible food source :rolleyes:) catches their attention. I don't like the strain on their neck and I feel like I have better control.

I had Bernie at work with me last week and took him out to potty and he saw someone across the parking lot that he wanted to make friends with and took off like lightning! Almost ran out right in front of a car. If I had only had a collar on him it could have crushed his throat when he suddenly got to the end of his leash. Scare the mess out of me!! :eek:

Plus every basset i've had must be related to Houdini because every one of them has been able to pull out of their collar.
