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.
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.
Unfortunately, this is yet another harness that failed for my reactive puller. Not only did she keep pulling but she managed to escape and I spent almost 2 hours trying to catch her in the neighborhood.
I like the design of this harness. It is easy to put on and seems comfortable for the dog. I like the long loop with a ribg on it for attaching the leash. But it did not stop my rat terrier mix from pulling. It did lessen the pull a little but she got used to it and went back to pulling hard within a day.
Buddy dog loves the bigger size we got him. Gives him an extra 6 inches to roam. Dog likes it so much he will dance when we pick up the harness and will lift his front leg up to put through the leg holes.
This is LONG but I hope you read it! Im a pretty experienced dog (& horse) owner-trainer and a retired PT. I bought this particular harness when my new pup of just 5 mos of age had become very willful with resoect to which direction "we" ought to be going! I went online and learned how Ceasar Milan (and others) can eliminate such behaviors by using a slip rope type leash. The key to that is that is positioning the loop around the necj very high up, right behind the ears. This way a). Mostly* youve control of the dogs head b) can mostly* use it to promote the dog to walk with his head up, being only all about the budiness of walking proud, head high! Indeed this worked! But not when I took him to the park where from 8 wks old was about play, learning to fetch, seeing approaching and meeting other people/dogs and FETCH. The slip loop shortish leash loses its capabilities/potential as soon as your dog puts his head down esp if to sniff about, then it sides down the neck midway or if from there pup wants to investigate further then the slip loop is down at the base of the neck into which dog can really lean and drag you along or of your feet even, while also choking. Not a good pic. Now I use that leash when out for a serious wete all about walking like a show dog and for exercuse for dogs person..i.e. no to nearly no stopping except some slowing periodically to slide the loop back up where it really doesnt want to be. In or around the park, prior to using this very well thouht out and uniquely designed harness... was just no fun at all unless of course he was loose for playing fetch. I felt heartsick and that I had failed was fsiling him and our objective of serious companion dog. I search and came to this harness, the physics and psych of this wholely unique harness is spot on. Instantly the clouds disapoeared. He didnt pull (its possible to oull in this harness as is the case of every one out there). Better it like he chooses and is happy to not do so. After using it for only 2 mos, we take our walks power or just plain type walking, even in and about/near the park all on a lack leash! The effect of this devise is that the dig chooses to not strain in/against it. From first seeing this I really could relate to the design of it as a PT. Word to wise HOWEVER a). If you tend to have a sit chilling on the patio or wherever, before or after your walking. Pay good enough attention to your dog esp puppies as mine managed to "cut" ( truly loked like he used is new adult inscisers to cut it as if Id taken sharp kitchen scissors to it!)...right through the flat nylon strap (one side) above where it neatly slips and glides, through the nifty hardware piece to tighten or loosen** pressures on the neck, chest, shoulders. 2nd note to the wise. I felt relief because I was able to "repair it-so I belueved, by tying a square knot...classic boy/girl scout way of strongly connecting two ends of a rope or two ropes. It was and seemed to test strong against my trying to pull it apart. 3 weeks later, last night. He did do a lunge pull nit hard but boink! He was running loose. I was terrified as he wanted to sprint all about me and not allow me to touch him. Thank God he wasnt intent upon bolting away or to "run back to the stable," yes I was an accomplished equestrian for part of my life. I got luck. I was terrified. Im buying a new one which is what I ought to have done right away. The material is nylin and slippery engiygh to escape the physics of the mightky square knot. As for his chewing cutting the line. It isnt that thus is cheep material. He likewise did the same to a brand new leash 1" wide, I had left it out. Puppies will be puppies and mischievous! My fault. I pay more attention. Its no bother, so ling as ine is wise to such possibilities! !!!** SEE and GET it that ONLY this device so immediately and effectively rewards fido as soon as and even at/ by any bit that he lets up on the pulling, tension...THIS IS one of THE keys to the success of it. The other is how dynamically it applys uncomfortable, disconcerting tensions and pressure without pain nor choking upon the neck, shoulders esp and chest)
