PetSafe Easy Walk Red & Black Dog Harness
Good product but could be better(more durable).
I like the way this harness works and the ease of putting it on, but it could be more durable. I have gone through a number of these harnesses because the plastic buckles keep breaking. I wish there was an option to purchase one with metal buckles.

Reduces stress for the nervous dog
We recently adopted a shelter dog who is afraid of EVERYTHING and stresses out with even a minimal amt. of pull from a leash or harness. The shelter used an Easy Walk and recommended it--works great! In the week since we brought Gifford home, he now lets me lead him on walks, instead of the other way around. I highly recommend this harness, especially for the nervous types.

EXCELLENT HARNESS, THE ONLY ONE I BUY FOR ANY DOG!
I LOVE this Easy Walk Harness for any type or size of dog!!! I am a dog owner and Lover for over 47 years and I highly recommend this harness for ANY DOG large or small for many reasons ... First a dog can Not wiggle out of it as my small dog is really good at with all other collars and harnesses. Second my large Aussie, 60 lb., who has a thing for chasing trucks can Not pull me off my feet any more. YOU have complete easy control with kindness to the dog. I was first introduced to this harness in a dog obedience training course and have bought them for all 4 of my dogs. Including my senior dog because it is designed not to put pressure on the dog's neck so I am not contributing to his arthritis pain when on a leash with this wonderful harness. So your dog can not pull you wether a small or large dog, you aren't yanking on it's neck, the dog walks beside you or can't get too far out front and beyond your control, and it can't wiggle out like a Houdini! I also volunteer at a dog rescue and recommend this harness to everyone! Plus they are very, very adjustable for sizing! So even if your dog grows or gains or loses weight you can still use the same harness. I have had all mine for many years and they still work great and look new! The quality of the harness and clever design make it by far the best harness ever! Dogs can also wear a collar with this harness for identification purposes and/or you can put tags on this harness too for when on walks. I recommend taking the harness off when not on walks and keeping the harness hooked to the dog's leash so it is all ready to go when you need it. If you are really stumped for a size to buy you could fit it at a store but BUY IT HERE at Chewy.com and SAVE A LOT OF MONEY! Also Chewy.com Customer Service is AWESOME and very helpful all the time, 24/7, just give them a call! WE LOVE CHEWY.COM!!!

Great harness!! Bad for biters...
This harness is a great tool for anyone that has a dog that pulls. I have a small puppy (a pomeranian) that has issues pulling. I originally had him on a regular collar, but he was pulling so hard on it that he would gag. As soon as he began to have that issue I bought him a cheap harness at Target. This harness solved the gagging issue, but did nothing to control the pulling. Instead, it exacerbated the issue by allowing him to pull without choking...
I looked into some alternatives and found this harness to be highly rated. I did some research and ordered it. I ordered it in a size too small the first time, but I tried it out. I loved how my puppy stopped pulling and started looking to me for direction. I did not have to do any training whatsoever. The only issue was that it did not fit properly and slipped around in the wrong places and could not be made any larger. I ordered a larger size and it came quickly. I put the harness on my puppy to get him used to wearing it before I took him on a walk. I left him with it on for a few moments. I noticed him trying to bite at it (which is a bad habit he picked up with his last harness - bitter sprays don't work on him) and I thought nothing of it and turned around to do something else (we're talking less than 10 minutes here). As soon as I got ready to take him out for the walk I reached down to clip his collar on and realized he had chewed almost halfway through it.
I'm sad that the material isn't strong enough to handle chewing... my puppy is still teething and so this is not going to work for me. If your dog does not chew on his harnesses then this will probably work amazingly for you!

I wanted to start my puppy off walking with our adult dog but he wasn't quite ready for the "gentle leader". Walking with him with just a leash and collar wasn't an option because he pulled so badly. A friend let me try her "Easy Walk" harness and I was sold on it immediately. It made a world of difference. The puppy walked as nicely as my adult dog. I'd recommend it to all dog owners. I may not even need the gentle leader which I would also highly recommend!

Our little dog is already pulling less. Be sure the fit is right.
The first time we used this harness it wasn't quite tight enough around the chest, and he got one of his legs through. No big deal, but once we tightened it a little, it worked beautifully. Much less tugging!

This product does what it says! My 130lb King Shepherd was hard to walk due to pulling but now is a dream to walk! I can actually take both dogs by myself. The sizing was right on and it fits her like it should. I would definately recommend this product

This Harness May Work For Your Pup
At the suggestion of my trainer, I purchased this harness to help my dog walk better on a leash. I did not notice much improvement in my pup's pulling until my trainer said I had it on upside down! She helped me adjust the fit so it was snug. There was some reduction in pulling but not enough to deter a terrier. This may work for your dog, but I could see mine did not find this harness comfortable. Because of having the leash attach in front of the chest, my dog was always getting his leg twisted around the leash and then I would have to stop to readjust it. I still prefer a regular harness, but until training is over, we will continue to use this product.
