Rated 5 out of 5 by rmxb Great for walking and training
I adopted a 3yr old Treeing Walker Coonhound and I'm training her to walk nicely (positive training). I used to wrap her leash around her to keep her from pulling me along. I bought this harness in hopes that it would work better and it's amazing how well it works! In just a week she has gone from pulling me everywhere to keeping an eye on me and turning when I turn and will come back to check on me if I stop. It just guides her around instead of pulling on her neck or providing force around her middle.
I love this thing! Be sure and measure across the chest as well as around her body. I had to get the next bigger size because the chest part was too small.
Chewy.com didn't exchange, just refunded and sent me a new one. I won't buy anywhere else now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NJ2014 Didn't work for us
Unfortunately my dog seems to be the 1 exception where this harness does not work. She is a 40lb black lab and pulls like crazy, wrenching my arm and wrist every time we walk - it's exhausting! I've tried the rear-clip harness and the martingale style collar as well and so far no luck. With this harness, she just keeps pulling and walking sideways!
In terms of the product itself, I will say that it's sturdy and well-made; it's held up through all the pulling, although I find it a bit hard to adjust so the sizing stays in place (keeps loosening). My dog is 1 yr old and I'm sure she also needs more training, but I was hoping this would help more...so unfortunately I can't recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mamajen63 Best selection, best price - surprise!
Forget amazon, i was suprised to find that chewy.com provided me with the widest variety of quality products suited for my mixed lab pup and best price! Yay! Got the harness in a hard to find green /black color combo at a price 40% lower than anywhere else online or at local bricks mortar store ( that did not have the color desired) , plus doggie food price through chewy beat the price I could get it for in the pet stores in my area, even with all the loyalty credits and coupons applied. Plus saving gas and time, can't miss w/chewy. What's not to love?! I'm in. So glad I found chewy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ojcso Surprised at how well it works!
Purchased this harness to make walking our 7 month old golden retriever puppy a little more manageable/enjoyable. He wasn't terrible, but not great either so we had to try it. We're pretty excited about how well the harness works. It was a bit of a challenge to fit the collar to the pup with all of the different straps and buckles but once we got it dialed in, it didn't really seem to bother him at all. He got used to wearing it in about 5 minutes. We've only had it a few weeks but at this point I'd recommend giving it a try as it's certainly helped us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lacopus1 More Walking, Less Pulling
Works very well for my 65-pound lab. His demeanor instantly changes as soon as I put the harness on him. He still pulls sometimes, especially if he sees a squirrel that he wants to chase, but with this harness I have much more control getting him back to where I want. We also have a smaller red one that his little heeler-mix sister uses and she walks much better with the harness, too. I highly recommend these for anyone with dogs that pull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joanieg This product WORKS
I needed something that would enable me to walk my dog instead of him walking me. This harness requires my dog to stay alongside of me instead of pulling in front. It works very well. Fits perfectly. I have an agressive Jack Russell that has a mind of his own, the harness lets me be in charge of him instead of the reverse !!
I was very impressed with the promptness of my order delivery, will certainly shop here more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PRETTYGIRL WAS EASY TO PUT ON
PRODUCT MADE WELL, EASY TO PUT ON. OPERATOR ERROR IS ONLY REASON I DON'T HAVE MORE DATA. FIRST TIME ON FINBARR, TOOK HIM OUT FRONT OF HOUSE. CRAZY BOY SAW A DEAR AND STARTED TO LAUNCH TOWARD THAT DIRECTION AND LEASH STOPPED HIM ENOUGH FOR ME TO GET CONTROL. WOO HOO!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adoptshelterdogs Great to encourage loose leash walking
This harness instantly had my rescue chocolate lab mix pup (15 months old) walking at my side without the usual energetic pulling and dragging and with no pressure at all on the throat and neck. Important to get proper size and adjustment. Petsafe's website had very helpful video to show how to get the right adjustment and chart for proper sizing. Chewy's had the best price and a good selection of colors.
