It's a little aggravating to set up and get on. And the arm padding easily falls off the straps leading too additional time feeding the straps back through the padding...a little elastic at the opening of the padding probably would've helped. Once it was all put together and strapped on it moderately reduced pulling although pretty much only when the dog was going straight ahead in front of us. I think our front-mount harness with the martingale collar does a somewhat better job all around.
I was desperate to find a way to walk my new 6 yo Lab foster dog without her pulling and straining. VERY high prey drive and moderately dog-reactive. I had used a similar under the front leg harness before with another dog but this pup is a much stronger pull-lunger and I was really discouraged. Out of the box, the harness rig looked well built. I took one of the training treats she loves and rubbed it along the inside and outside of the collar and the nylon string parts. She didn't seem to mind the getup in her excitement to get started on the walk. AFTER A FEW STEPS, she got with the program! I hadff to adjust the tightness of the cords a few times. Thrilled. I am thrilled. If that changes after we get more time in with it I will adjust the review.
Has made hikes with my 25 lb dynamo more comfortable for both of us. It has helped a lot with her pulling.
To hand to figure out how to put on a toddler lab. They need to make it user friendly
Tried many no-pull harnesses in the past and our dog would either figure them out or hate them so he wouldn't walk. He doesn't mind this one at all and best of all, he doesn't pull! He's a sled dog breed, so it was a real problem!
I had high hopes for this halter. It did not stop my dog from pulling. Back to the prong collar.
Tje collar worked fine for me. It helped the dog from pulling quite as much. However, it is a little awkward to get on and off.
Our 8 month old 28 pound Scotty would pull more often than not in his harness when we would go out for bathroom breaks or walks. This made it very difficult for my wife and our parents take him out because he pulled so much and so hard. Using the Sporn Training Halter has greatly reduced his tendency to pull and when he does want to pull he pulls a lot less.
I have a pug pup who isn't quite 2 yo. He is in constant motion. We could not begin to get it fit. Too complicated for this lille ranger
Worth every penny. I have 2 pullers. This is the only no pull harness that actually worked and immediately. Does not cause any pain of discomfort. It's simply amazing how well it works. Now I look forward to our walks.
