We have two younger dogs (1 year) who we've been trying to train to not pull when walking in public areas. We thought this might aid in their training, but both continue to pull excessively in the harness. There might be external factors contributing (poor training, external stimulus), but ultimately this harness hasn't really improved anything.
My rescued dog has a sensitive trachea. I have purchased a half dozen harnesses to try to avoid pulling at her sensitive throat. This is the only harness that has ever worked. Determining how to put it on was a small challenge, but once I mastered that it'd been we have been happy walkers. I recommend this harness unequivocally.
Pup still pulls like crazy... Been using this harness since he was very young, buying bigger ones as he grew. I only use it in the house with him on a leash so I know he's safe and not chewing up something that can make him sick.
Three stars only because it seems like it could be ok for maybe a breed that isn’t very strong. I have a Great Pyrenees. I bought it so we could take him camping with the requirements that he must be on a lead or tie out. He snapped it at the O-ring that attached to the tie out. We could have lost our dog who is a runner; had my husband not been outside and caught in to the fact our dog wasn’t attached! I’m so upset about this! But I’ll take some blame as my dog is very strong. And I should have researched better.
My Pomeranian loves to go for walks but pulls on a regular harness. Spoon harness keeps him leashed but stops the pressure on his throat and neck. Highly recommend .
I have only been using this for about a week but have definitely noticed my dog pulling much less! The strap that connects to the leash is definitely a little thin, but this still gets 5 stars because my dog is very strong and we’ve had no issues. Recommend for pullers and escape artists!
My 65 lb Shepherd has most of her manners but this helps to keep her from running off and pulling while she learns. Sits low on her chest and not near her throat which is what I worried about when shopping. Easy to slip on and has no clasps or buckles to press into her. Soft covers on the cord are underarm. Not bulky and worth the great value.
Got this for my fat Lab! I just adopted her and she has skin issues on her neck so this light-weight harness causes no rubbing and is also very effective to control her as walking is new to her.
Our dog is small only 11 pounds but she is part beagle so loves to chase squirrels and birds. This harness is good because it is soft and if she pulls it doesn't choke her.
This is my second time purchasing this harness. Used the first one for several years, 3-4 times per week, before one of the straps under the body broke. Love that it's lightweight and adjustable, the medium fits my 45-pound GSP very well. My favorite feature is that when she tries to pull, the straps that run under the front legs tighten to correct the pulling; but when the leash is slack, it doesn't chafe anywhere.
