We’re in the middle of teaching our dog how to loose leash walk. Before we got this harness, we were having difficulties with him pulling and it was very frustrating. With this harness, we’ve been having better walk sessions and minimal pulling! My arms no longer feel like they’re being pulled out of its sockets.
Great harness for pulling
We were struggling to find a harness that fit our English lab well. She is so blocky, and the harnesses that have a wide chest piece weren’t working. I tried this and it is perfect. She pulls so much less than she does with a collar. Wish I had found it a lot sooner!
Wonder Walker Harness
I have been dragged behind this 98 pound dog like a water skiier for years. I now have bad knees and need more control of her while on a walk. Decided to give this harness a try and it works great! Walking her is much more enjoyable fir me now. We are also getting one for our energetic black lab now that we know how well it works.
Turning point in leash-training our puppy
Our five-month-old golden retriever puppy was starting to get really strong, and her oppositional pulling (or dragging) when using just a collar or typical chest harness was making walks less than fun for everyone. The dog trainer recommended a shoulder harness like this, and when paired with a runner's leash (and positive reinforcement), it makes for a much more relaxed and enjoyable walk. It's super-easy to slip on and off--i.e., less time for our puppy to grab it in her mouth and wrestle with it--and the bright-orange color adds a pop of safety for trail hikes. The quality seems very high, too. Our puppy is five months and about 35 lbs.; we ordered a medium and it fits her (a little loosely) at its smallest. But it'll expand and grow with her to adulthood, which is great.
No Pull Harness
This is one of those I should have known better. We have a wonderful 55 lb labradoodle put he pulls whenever he is walked. We were at our wits end and I saw the ad for the wonder walker. I usually just avoid ads. So, I clicked on the ad and saw that we have the same exact harness and that we bought it in puppy class. The problem was that we have been attaching the leash to the top of the harness on his back and not below by his chest. Well, once I read the correct way of using the harness for loose leash walking and realized that we had that same harness and simply changed the location of where the leash was attached - we have a totally different dog on walks. Aside from walking sideways at the start as he was getting accustomed to the new leash attachment things have gone as smoothly as anyone could expect. My wife can walk our dog without fear of being pulled over and tripped. The struggle to stop pulling is over. All our walks are a pleasure And, we could not be more delighted! He still wants to pull from time to time but this harness makes it so easy to direct his walking. We should have paid more attention in puppy class or I should have just read instructions about the harness two years ago. If this stopped out Smokey from pulling it should work for just about any dog anywhere. I give this 10 stars. SF Santa Fe, NM
