Dog Harness That Ends Pulling!

by DFS-Pet-Blog on July 6, 2010

**Guest post from Ellen B.**

It’s no fun being pulled around the neighborhood by your dog – I speak from experience. I fixed this problem with the Gentle Leader Easy Walker dog harness. It has made going for a walk with my dog much more pleasant!

Gentle-Leader-Easy-Walk-Harness

I’ve used the Gentle Leader Easy Walker harness for both my 60-lb lab mix (who has passed) and my 24-lb Havanese mix. From the first step with the harness on, neither dog even attempted to pull me. If I try using just their regular collar, they go right back to pulling. Of course there are different training methods to prevent leash pulling, but I just would not be without a Gentle Leader dog harness! There is no choking and it doesn’t hurt the dog at all. 

I call it magic, but here’s how it works. The leash gets attached to the harness in the front chest area. When the dog pulls and I’m standing back, he is naturally turned to the side. Pretty difficult for him to walk sideways. And he’s certainly not going to be able to pull me with his head turned to the side!

The harness comes in different sizes based on girth measurement. It takes a few adjustments to make it fit perfectly.

If your dog likes to take YOU for a walk, you’ll want to get a Gentle Leader Easy Walker dog harness and take back control of your walks!

Ellen,
Balto wears his Easy Walker harness on our walks and he just passed his Delta Society Therapy test in it. At 1 1/2 years old, still puppy zoomies and 130 pounds of big dog, I love how easy it is to control him with it on!
My arm thanks the Easy Walker!

Hi Steph! I enjoy seeing all of Balto’s cute pictures on Facebook. 130 pounds – wow! He’s a big boy! Congrats on the Therapy test, I’m so impressed with how therapy dogs can make a huge difference in lives. Thanks for the comment – definitely something I wouldn’t want to live without 🙂

Hi Ellen, I am so glad i found your article. I have seen similar harnesses on dogs, but failed to notice how it actually changes the dogs motion. Thought they were a fad till you stated the sideways motion.
I was getting so tired of my dog taking me for a walk that i actually was cutting back of the effort.Thanks for helping us both out.

Baz, I can relate! It started to be so much “work” to walk my dog until I found this harness. It really has helped me enjoy our walks. Thanks for your comment!
