1) Put collar around neck of dog. Position buckle and large D-rings on top.
2) Adjust for snug fit. Make adjustments equal on both sides, otherwise halter will not function properly.
3) Pass restraints through each of the large rings on top of collar. Thread Sherpa Sleeves and then, one at a time, pass restraint behind dog's leg and connect to small D-rings on bottom of collar.
4) Press button on restraint lock to adjust up or down for a snug fit. Avoid overtightening.
5) Attach your leash to metal ring and enjoy complete control during your walk.
To get the most accurate harness size for your furry best friend, match the below measurements as closely as possible to your pal's measurements using the Printable Measuring Tape on this page.
Lower Neck Circumference: Harnesses sit lower on the neck than collars, so measure around lower part of the dog’s neck. If your pet falls in between two sizes, we recommended purchasing the larger size.
My eight month old Boston terrier is a puller. This harness sounded as if it would work well, but I am disappointed on two counts. Putting it on the pup is complicated because he is lively; perhaps it wouldn't be so frustrating for a very docile dog. My main complaint is that the plastic tightening device does not lock into place. The second the dog moves it slips loose. The padded covers on the straps don't stay put either. This harness is not as advertised.
Best halter to stop most any dog from pulling.

I have had 3 Norwegian Elkhounds. The last 2 have been hard to control on walks, wanting to pull me along like a sled dog would. I got this halter for my second dog and it worked like a charm. No more sled dog! She would walk a bit ahead of me, but I could control her with one hand. Now I have a 6 month old puppy and I have already started training her with this halter. I would recommend it for any dog owner whose dog tries to walk them rather than the owner walking the dog.

My Cavalier was out of control on walks; he'd see a deer, a squirrel, a bird, another dog, a person, a car and would be hopping on his hind legs like a kangaroo and barking like crazy. Without seeing anything, he'd pull my arm and me like a sleigh. I read someone else's review on Chewy about this halter and thought I'd try it. Worked on first walk! I am amazed! Definitely worth it! Wish I tried it sooner!
Great Dane family
on May 8, 2020
We currently have 3 Great Danes in our family. One big Brindle boy (Judge) & two rambunctious half-sisters. (Judge) puts the P in power walking. Wherever he is going, he is going to be going at a clip. That wasn't the problem. The problem was adding anything into the mix - Squirrel, Rabbit, Person...he became so overjoyed that his power walk turned into a dash. Trying to rein in a 142 lb. 1 year old is not an easy thing to do. Great Danes have no fat on them - they are ALL muscle & super strong. He could easily pull an adult off their feet, not meaning to hurt them, he was just that strong. We tried so many harnesses, leads, collars...to no avail.

I knew I did NOT want something around his neck for controlling the pulling. On a lark, we went out to try yet another halter/lead and we saw the SPORN. I will never forget going home & trying it that first night. Hallelujah - it worked. It worked so well we went out and bought more. Every last one of our Great Danes has worn them. They aren't tricky to use or put on. Lay the loops open on the floor and let your dog step through the loops then pull it on up. Our grandson can easily put them on. Super easy to adjust and did I mention --- NO PULLING -- and nothing on their muzzle, head, or throat. SCORE!! Get one -- you will be glad that you did.… more

I bought two halters, which helped well enough to restrain our pair of puppies from pulling, but after less than one month's use, the tether on one halter snapped and the puppy almost ran into traffic before we could call her back.
Sporn Spurned by lovable, but lively Golden Lab
on Apr 12, 2020
I am not saying the Sporn Training Dog Halter does not work. It just does not work for my lab, Buddy. I have used many devices and Buddy has improved in the year and a half since I adopted him at a local shelter and he literally drug me out the door. But he is determined to leave no slack in the leash when we walk. Buddy is 2 1/2 now. I am told Labs settle down at 4 or 5. I hope he softens with age. Hopefully, this item works for others.

The clasp that keeps the arm straps tight keeps moving. The straps would keep hanging around my pups arms and I would have to retighten it. Trying to return.
this is perfect!

My dog used to pull me and made walks difficult. I’ve tried multiple harnesses and collars to prevent the pulling but this one has been the best for us. Would highly recommend

DEFINITELY worth the try. This is our 5th harness over 6 yrs. the ONLY one that stopped Mark-lab/pit mix-from pulling me.
Is complicated to put on. Takes a couple of tries to get used to.

We have a pit bull puppy who weighs 43 lbs and is 6 months old. I ordered the medium for her & it fit perfect. Usually only me or my husband could walk her because she pulled so much, but we now feel comfortable letting the kids walk her as well. It has helped tremendously with pulling. We can finally enjoy actual walks with her, we love this harness so much.
