Canine equipment, but when and for which dog breeds?

Harness, muzzle, collar, non-slip leash… Julius-K9 is the leading brand on the European market for protective equipment and accessories for dog owners and therefore dog handlers. To choose the right equipment, the dog officer must first choose it perfectly suited to the size and build of his dog. He exercises his profession effectively with a dog aged 18 months under the CCNES (understand National Collective Agreement of Security Companies).
